I am the luckiest guy in the world
I remember very clearly walking to my home while I was in Elementary School at about 8 years of age and considering the following.
Canada is the best country in the world, and Calgary is the best city in Canada. Briar Hill is the best community in the city and I live in the best location in the community, I also happen to have the best family and friends. I am the luckiest kid in the whole world.
Egocentric? Perhaps, but I feel this early life memory expresses how I have always had gratitude and a happy outlook. Since those younger years not much has changed.
Having such beliefs early in life it is no surprise that I have created a lifestyle for my family much like the upbringing I experienced. My two greatest coaches/mentors are my Mom and Dad. They have shown me through their actions what it means to live a life of success, expressed through building strong relationships with friends & family, making meaningful contributions to the world and experiencing the satisfaction that comes with purposeful work.
In 2002 I began to work full time with my Mom, Dad and brother in Real Estate. I have considered it a privilege to work alongside them at The Ramage Group in our family Real Estate business. I am happily married and have three beautiful children.
This blog is a place where I share some personal reflections and professional insights and ideas.
