Why Angela


In order to achieve our goals we know we need to stop sitting around thinking about them and take action! We don’t let ourselves overthink our actions because we believe doing SOMETHING is better than NOTHING and by DOING we will get clarity.


Think big, act big! You are what you believe you are. Nothing more. Nothing less.


Leadership is about influence, and influence is all about unapologetically living your passion and letting others be inspired by you living your truth.


Be yourself so that you attract the right kind of people. Strut your superpowers and don’t hold back. And … I mean really, life is too short to just fit in when you were born to stand out.


To get through roadblocks and rough patches we simply put our can-do attitude into high gear and say “We’ve got this!”.


Lighten up! Laugh! Live in the moment! Around here, getting a little silly sometimes is a non-negotiable that we cherish because it results in higher productivity.

The shift from being a CEO “wearing all of the hats” to building a productive corporate team to support our growth has made the biggest impact on our business from working with Angela.  Her drive for knowledge has exceeded our expectation, her ability to make connections within the franchise industry and seek out industry experts has been beneficial to the growth of Barre Fitness.  I would recommend Angela to any new business considering franchising.

“In my over 20 years with M&M Meat Shops, I have observed Angela in various roles with the company and beyond.  What stands out the most to me about Angela is her natural understanding of business and her ability to apply that understanding in so many capacities.  On both the corporate franchisor side as well as the franchisee side, Angela has always been very action-oriented and uses her intuition for people to achieve success.  Her energetic personality is refreshing and motivating, and there is absolutely no question in my mind that Angela would be an incredible contributor and asset to any company’s plans or execution of its vision”
Frank Phelan, Senior Vice President, M&M Meat Shops

“I have known Angela as a client and friend since around the year 2000. I have always been impressed with her knowledge, energy, and passion for her family business as a franchisee of M & M Meat Shops.   Additionally, her historical experience working with the M & M franchisor gives her insight into the franchisor and franchisee needs and relations. I am looking forward to watching her use that unique skill set to assist other businesses in the conversion to, and success using, the franchise business model.”

Greg Harney, Franchise Lawyer

Angela stressed the importance of getting out of my business so I can work ON my business.  The saying that resonated the most with me was when she said “Once you sell a Franchise you are no longer in the business of running a wax bar.  You are in the business of selling and supporting wax bars.”  Changing my way of thinking helped me understand the importance of getting out of my shops so I can focus on all three locations as a whole company instead of just the one that I worked in taking clients.  Angela is AMAZING!!!  I recommend her all the time to anyone who wants to grow their business!

We are currently in a growth phase and looking to expand through franchising. We met Angela at a CFA seminar and was impressed by the presentation she made about how to franchise your business, the pro’s and con’s.   A result of the F3 Session is that now we have a clear starting point. I know what it is going to take, have an approximate estimate of how much this is going to cost and what steps are involved.  Angela has exceeded our expectations.  She is someone you can trust and is very knowledgeable about franchising and someone who is honest. 

Ben VanEck, BeNanna Bakery

“Angela was with us for the two weeks leading up to our record sales setting grand opening.  She trained us and our staff on how to successfully get up and running. Angela was eager to get the job done right and on schedule.  She brought with her a deep understanding of the franchise business and helped us immensely at such a critical time. Angela’s approach was fun, refreshing and easy to implement.  After being involved with several Canadian franchises, we couldn’t have had a more competent person that was up for the challenge in our store.”
Gary and Laurie Straub, M&M Meat Shops Franchisees, Moose Jaw, SK

“Angela is someone I value having as part of a team. I’ve worked with Angela in various capacities in business and for the community over the past 12 or so years and she has been a key driver, when she is involved it is guaranteed that you will be generating success.  She makes things happen and has a natural ability to apply her unique background to a diverse range of challenges and achieve positive outcomes. She brings a well established diverse network, wealth of experience and unique perspective that is an asset to every situation.”

Lee Richardson, CEO of Richardson Sport Inc. and Executive Director of Braefoot Community Association



“Angela and I met when she brought the M&M Meat Shops franchise to the island in 2000.  Her energy and enthusiasm for growing her business was very inspiring.  When I was buying the business I currently own, SeaSide Magazine, I consulted with Angela for advice as she has such a strong business background.  Angela is a natural at identifying simple yet effective ways to grow a business.”

Sue Hodgson, Owner, Seaside Magazine

“Angela and I worked together developing M&M Meat Shops in Western Canada.  Franchisees had put their life savings into the business yet Angela had a way of making them feel confident about running their business and motivating them to succeed.  Angela brought creative strategies to the system with her business background and understanding of franchising. “
