remember telling my mother when I got my first real job as a manager at
CIBC. She was so happy for me and so
relieved! She’d done her job well. Then, I remember telling my mother when I
decided to leave everything I knew behind and move to a Caribbean island,
alone, with nothing but an idea, a drive to start my own business and my
bathing suit. Poor Mom needed a
chair and some smelling salts to recover.
later, I’m happy to report that Mom is doing well and has recovered. Nothing could
prepare me for the challenges and rewards of being my own boss in an
industry I love.
little girls don’t play in the sandbox and dream of being first a bank
teller and then a Chief Compliance Officer.
I’m not most little girls.
I’ve scared myself a little bit with how this thirst for adventure
has taken me from relative security and family to the thrill of carving out
my own professional future and finding another family far, far from home.
time, I surveyed potential compliance threats to my bank and proactively
built defenses. Now, I survey
potential compliance threats across multiple sectors and anticipate the
next trend to challenge compliance.
At one time, I knew my route to work every day, a 20 minute
walk. Now, I have clients
far-and-wide, a short drive up the coast or a long plane ride across the
world. At one time, I opened a
steady paycheck. Now, I have the
thrill of knowing whatever is in that envelope at the end of the month is solely
the product of my own ingenuity.
life is not for every land lubber, but this explorer couldn’t ever go
back. The adventure of travel, the
adventure of entrepreneurship and the opportunities they bring to my life
have me anchored forever in Barbados!
(I do love to travel though; so, ring me!)
