In this day to day, online connected world, it's so nice to get a LinkedIn invitation to meet for a coffee in person. Face to face is always the best way to share ideas and truly connect! It was great to meet with Martin MacArthur at the Tim Hortons on March Road this morning. We chatted about his business efforts (marketing for ReEnvision Marketing) as well as our various studio initiatives and the overall positivity in the Ottawa market. The most interesting part of the conversation was how we all have a choice when facing challenges in business and life.
Halfway through our meeting, Martin mentioned "you know I'm completely blind, right?". To be honest, I didn't know and to be even more honest, it didn't matter. But it then inspired us to talk about the concept of challenges. I've always been a big believer in treating challenges as a opportunities to creatively overcome them!
I look forward to getting to know Martin more and to see if we can help each other's businesses in the future. For now, I'm just grateful for the opportunity to meet, chat about Ottawa and share a coffee!
