    On behalf of the Chamber and businesses all across Prince George, it is my honour and pleasure to help showcase our citys new 40 Under 40.

    While I am a numbers guy by trade, I can tell you that the positive, multi-faceted contributions made by this group to our local economy and business culture add up. With each persons story, you will see them raising the bar and effecting change.

    On the white board at the Chamber, Ive scribbled down one of my favorite quotes (courtesy of William A. Ward): The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails. (Its still up there, so perhaps others like it, too!) Without exception, each person on the list has grabbed the helm of their ship with unparalleled optimism, while at the same time leveraging their skills to adjust in stormy weather and navigate forward. As for pessimism, whats that?

    More importantly, these individuals should be recognized for the greater role they have to play in the development of Prince George and

    our growing reputation as an amazing place to live, work and play. Each one is a captain of his/her own industry and has chosen to lead by example. While anyone can adopt a glass-half-full attitude, they remind us that we must actually drive the change we want to see. This applies not only to business in Prince George, but to natural resource development, care of our youth, care of our seniors, downtown revitalization, road conditions(insert your beef here)and the list goes on.

    Ultimately, there are lessons contained in each and every story as to how we can all make our own positive contributions to Prince George. As for me, I am glad I made the choice to call this city my home. The business climate is very exciting and the opportunities here for me and my young family are amazing. My sincere thanks to all the past, present and future 40 Under 40 over-achievers who help
