This three-time Olympian, two-time World Champion and most recently named the 11th greatest athlete in Nova Scotia history not only inspires us to have big goals but also gives us the tools to achieve them.

With Karen Furneaux and Stewart Robinson

RBC Wealth Management Regional Director of Atlantic, Stewart Robinson and I recently had the pleasure of catching up with Karen Furneaux at the 8th annual NS Sports Hall of Fame Invitational Golf Tournament in support of the "Future Hall of Famers Education Program."

It is always wonderful catching up with Karen. The conversation is inspiring and her vision  to have everyone perform at their best and thrive through healthy living is truly remarkable.

In her work at I Promise Performance Inc., Karen has empowered world-class companies and organizations to make health, wellness and top-performance a part of their culture. She also touches the lives of young women through her Strong Beauty Tribe and has recently added author to her long list of accomplishments!   

Her first book is Strong Beauty: Power Up the Champion Within.

As a father of two growing, curious and strong-willed girls it is champions like Karen who help ensure that their future is bright by instilling self-belief and the appreciation of the beauty in all!
