This is part of a year-long ‘Love for Local’ series called NB365: portraits of New Brunswick entrepreneurs, businesses and organizations. Huddle is a media partner with Love for Local. Today, we hear from Mathieu Gagné of Sports Experts 482 in Edmundston.
THE CHALLENGE IS WHAT PUSHED ME TO GO INTO BUSINESS. IT’S MOTIVATING TO BE AN ENTREPRENEUR. EVERYTHING BECOMES A SOURCE OF IMPROVEMENT: HOW CAN I IMPROVE MY SERVICE? HOW CAN I BETTER MEET THE NEEDS OF MY CUSTOMERS? HOW CAN I GET MORE INVOLVED IN MY COMMUNITY?
When the local economy is healthy, everyone benefits from it. That’s another source of motivation. While I want to continue to grow, it’s also important for me to listen to the people here so I can offer them what they need. Business is give and take.
