Talk about a whirlwind few months. When I look back on it, I kept getting signs from all sorts of people and places that I felt were encouraging me to invest my time and energy into something that turned out to be Total Heliski.Or perhaps I was just now open and looking for the signs. After all, I was reading all sorts of blogs (Seth Godin’s was most influential here), talking to friends about the merits of doing an MBA or doing a startup, and then one day in July I think it was, I got an email from Greg Porter, the owner of Great Canadian heli skiing (heli operator), asking me whether I was actually going to setup a heliski promotion company to represent his operation and showcase it to people in the UK and other markets because he would like to see more Brits come heli skiing.
I thought the most appropriate starting point for my blog is to talk about my philosophy: Seize life, realize your dreams and create everlasting memories. It really is at the heart of my blog and my new company called Total Heliski. I came up with this sentence recently when I was trying to crystallize what I am all about? What makes me happy and drives my life? And what could I perhaps share positively with others?
It all starts with seizing life, and by that I mean to adopt a positive, unrestricted approach to life and goal setting. Without initial vision, dreams, objectives or whatever you call them, it’s impossible to achieve them, right? So, for me, Total Heliski is about helping people find out a bit more what’s out there, and what’s possible to fulfill their passion around skiing and vice versa.
