About Barry Clermont
I believe we have a responsibility to leave the world a better place than we found it.
I acknowledge that I am located in South River (Ontario, Canada) on the traditional territory of the Anishinabewaki peoples covered by the Williams Treaty (1923) and Robinson-Huron Treaty (1850). I also recognize the significant ongoing contributions of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples to culture in Canada.
I have been blessed with great opportunities over the years to have a positive impact on the lives of people around me. My experiences and resources have given me the opportunity to empower individuals and business owners to take control of their destiny.
I grew up in southern Ontario, Canada in a manufacturing city. Later, I married and moved to Barrie, Ontario just over an hour north. In both cases, manufacturing companies started folding and decent paying jobs were replaced by lower paying retail and support jobs.
During 20 years in the retail food industry, I worked for two companies under various banners and lived through those two companies eventually merging. Over the years I worked in virtually all aspects of the retail food business, managing inventory and people, and known as the guy who can get the job done. Especially under challenging circumstances.
During the recession of the mid 1990’s, I made the transition to PETsMART where I managed inventory, people and operations winning awards for merchandising.
In the late 1990’s, I got my first computer and became addicted to technology. This lead to four years designing and selling computer technology solutions and networks to small to medium business.
Then I met my friends in the financial services industry. I eventually joined them as a consultant for one of Canada’s largest financial services companies.
Due to one of those major life occurrences, I had to make a change and went to work as a public servant to ensure consistent cash flow while we dealt with a family member’s major health issue. Sometimes we are pushed in a direction that we should have traveled in the first place!
My experience is that most people can no longer live on the income from one job. If you want more out of life, you need to take action. What and how is what I hope you can find here.
Along the way, I have learned that if you want to have more than the average, you need to take action and I am now involved in Internet marketing. Life is exciting and I hope you are enjoying this miraculous adventure we live!
In recent years, I have started to blog, more for myself than others. This is where I put my thoughts down and that helps me to think through ideas, issues and challenges. It’s my hope that others may be able to contribute feedback and maybe even find the thoughts useful. >>>Click Here
Make it a great day!
