Publishers Note Vavasaur 2010
In the 1600’s, the King and the Queen hired a Baron to manage their affairs. The Baron in turn, hired a VAVASAUR to lead the common men – the vassals. Hence, the name for my latest endeavor, this magazine called Vavasaur™ - Leader of Men…………………..
My past experience led me to publish the Premier issue of Vavasaur™ Magazine. I started profiling men through print media years ago, and found that men appreciate recognition and credibility as experts in their industry.
Profiling people is my passion. A mentor once told me, “Pat yourself on the back because no one else will.” The comment wasn’t suggesting arrogance – it was encouraging me to lift myself up, take pride in my accomplishments, and let people know that I am confident in the message I bring forth.
That encouragement and belief in myself developed a strong desire to do the same for others. People want to work with someone they respect – someone trustworthy who is knowledgeable about their products and services. Relationships build a foundation for that respect. The businessmen featured in Vavasaur™ Magazine begin that trust relationship by presenting themselves and their businesses to potential clients. Remember – future clients are the ones you haven’t met yet!
Vavasaur™ Magazine focuses on who the person is. The men in Vavasaur™ have experience and knowledge. They are inspirational and make themselves available for success. As you read their success stories, you will find these men have some things in common. They are doubt-deficient, work extremely hard with good intentions, and remain humble. Successful men “DO” what unsuccessful men won’t. They are leaders of men … A Vavasaur…..
“What it is, is what it is”
“Never give Up”
Are two philosophy’s I live by. They work for me and I believe it.
What I figured out was, work hard at something, give it your best and get the payback, the big reward.
Many careers I have had during my life, and the one that keeps me totally excited and enthused about is sales. I haven’t really had any formal training in sales, however I’ve been told I am very convincing. Making the deal is like a drug. It’s euphoric and you want more.
My family is very important to me and I love them all. We are now over 35 and counting. My mother is the reason I moved back to Edmonton 7 years ago, being away was getting to me, as it had been 20 years away living in four Provinces, only to get home for special occasions.
Friends are people you pick, because they add to your life and you add to theirs. I am one lucky person, as I have the best friends of any one I know.
Giving to your community is essential to being successful. I made a promise to myself I would give as much as I could to whatever charity or person in need I chose at the time. I don’t make a lot of money but I live an awesome life and consider myself a successful human being. I always have enough of what I need and get through tough times. I land on my feet.
Vavasaur Magazine is so very special to me. I see men grow in their personal life as well as their business. The magazine make things happen for the men who take advantage of the gift they have received. It’s a joy to me when a featured man gets it.
Then they soar. Their children are gone and grown, or they may be alone and they want to do something productive in their lives for themselves. Vavasaur is where I should be. I love what I do and I’m excited everyday.
