In 1990, I just took a big step for my career: after 9 months as a data entry clerk at Statistics Canada, I became a financial analyst..
I was living in Hull at the time and I finished my studies to be a financial analyst.r.
I have no experience, I am not a woman, I am not Aboriginal, I am not part of a visible minority and I do not have a disability.cap.
My chances of having a job in the federal government in my field is almost mission impossible..
I see a position as a data entry clerk, so apply.e.
I pass the interview and I have the post. Who wants to do data entry like a full time robot It looks like no one wanted to do this job.vail.
Me neither, but I wanted to put my foot in the gear to eventually see the posts posted..
In the long run, I knew I wanted to start a business, but in the meantime, I had to work until I found my idea of the century.e.
The idea that will make me say: fuck all, I'm going into business!! »
Because to start a business, you have to say this sentence.
Going into business is a bit like counting to 3 when you want to give a warning to children.s.
1, 2, 2 1/4, 2 1/2, 2 3/4.
« Heille, I said I counted to 33 »
We have the dog to take the leap.
I didn't have a dog, I didn't have ideas.es.
Well I had one, but I didn't have any money.nt.
I wanted to print the daily news on restaurant placemats and distribute it like newspapers every morning.
Just little news on Twitter!
I didn't do it, so I was looking for a job so as not to enter data for life at Statistics Canada.a.
A position of financial analyst has just been posted!
« Priority will be given to women, Aboriginals and visible minorities»
« Sacrament, what I did to the world to be a white man I just want to work in my field not rewrite history.re ».
I finally got the job and I said to one of my colleagues: :
« Finally, I am rich my salary was 42,000 and I was 23 years old! ! »
Then she said to me:
« François, I have known you for 9 months, but I know you enough to know that money will never be enough! »
This sentence has remained in my memory for years.
Until I go into business. I went into business to make money, but I never worked for money.ent.
It is the desire to change things, to please people who are always motivated.é.
While having in the background: It's better to pay one day!! »
