"Motorvationally Speaking": Roy's New Toy

Shawna is an entrepreneur who didn't think twice about making the leap.

At the of 54.

That's when she jumped into the deep end of uncertainty.

Owning and operating her own business.

Drawing on her past experiences, Shawna dove in and accepted the challenge of leading RE/MAX Group Four Realty in Fredericton, NB, recently recognized for their exceptional contribution to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation Atlantic Chapter in 2008.

Ever since taking over the business, Shawna has felt like a kid with a new toy.

That's why it's no surprise to see Shawna and her team win the award for "Top Contributing Office in Atlantic Canada" at the RE/MAX gala held at the Marriott Hotel in Halifax. Her location generated close to $6,500 for the cause, with monies raised directed to research and prevention initiatives.

Today on TSB ... we get up close and personal with owner/broker Shawna Roy.

Shawna's team is raising money through various initiatives, including Sold on a Cure, a program that allows Realtors to make a donation every time they sell a home. Other events, include Run for the Cure led by team captain Bev Bennett, Yard Sale for the Cure, RE/MAX Relay for Life and a luncheon auction. RE/MAX Group Four has three offices in Fredericton with a total sales force of close to 60 agents and also support Children's Miracle Network and various cancer research charities.

"Motorvationally Speaking", on CHCD TV, is a weekly, internet-based show focused on people who embrace the power of positive thinking. The guests may not always be famous, but they are always enlightening, and each one of them has an interesting story to tell. You won’t see any advertising on this program. For Jim Gilbert, it's not about selling cars, it’s about motivating people with inspiring messages at a time when it’s most needed.
