Q: How did you get started running your own boutique agency?
Back in 2014, my husband was offered an opportunity to return to a job at the Port Moody Fire Department, a career he was passionate about returning to. The plus side was that he would have a much more flexible work schedule for the family and he was returning to a job he loved, but the downside was that it came with a large pay cut.
At this point I had two children aged 5 and 8 (They are now 9, 12, and our son is 2.5!). I had wanted to start my own business for a while, so I decided to try it on the side to see if I could earn us a bit of extra money to make up the difference. I started Empty Desk Solutions in April, and by August I was earning enough money to quit my full-time job and give it a go.
