We were lucky enough to be involved in a pretty cool event last night, capturing a 'fireside chat' with Stephen Smith, who has just gifted a very generous investment of 50 million dollars to Queen's University, for business education. Mr. Smith told his humble story of how he made his money, which at the base was to be generous and grateful. He also talked of how luck and being at the right place at the right time are a big part of success in business - most honest entrepreneurs I think would agree to that. Of course being smart, hard working and extremely determined, were also part of his story. Both Anita and I were most impressed by his kindness, reminding us that being nice should be at the core of any business or entrepreneurial enterprise!
