A diminutive dynamo, a mother of four, a savvy businesswoman, an author (‘Succeeding Against All Odd’s, and ‘Reading Between the Wines’), an energizing and enthusiastic speaker – Kathleen Mundy has been termed all of these things and wears them proudly. Captivating audiences of six to 600, Kathleen’s message of BOLD and experienced business advice has been provided to professional groups including financial institutions such as TD Bank for business banking clients, National Woman’s conferences and Executives.
Kathleen’s 25-year evolvement in the Franchise world provides a rich and comprehensive understanding of the Franchise business model. As she leveraged a small investment into a multi-unit 7 figures company in 5 years, she designed a 5-Step M.O.N.E.Y. System. This system provides solid training in business acumen, financial literacy and relationship marketing. After studying under her, mentorship clients have successfully improved their income, revamped business models and gained fulfillment. Now, as an executive coach, she provides career and business advancement training with Franchising being her main focus.
She takes on challenges with a no-nonsense approach. “Business isn’t easy, it’s simple in principle but not easy. If it was easy everyone would do it!”
Robert brings a diverse background, born from experience.
Following a Bachelor’s Degree, Honours, in Psychology at Brock University and computer science work at the University of Waterloo, he obtained his Law Degree from the University of Ottawa. Robert practiced corporate law, both inside and outside the courtroom, for 10 years.
As a young professional, Robert found himself a single parent of two young pre-school boys. Work-life balance became even more difficult and as the boys grew and the demands of his law practice restricted his ability to parent in the full-time manor he desired. Robert joined the Royal Bank of Canada, expanding his knowledge of financing while he continued to raise his two sons. As his family aged and becoming proficient at work-life balance, Robert joined the Federal Government of Canada in Taxation. These accomplishments enriched Robert’s experience profile while maintaining his law status.
Robert’s background in Computer Science, Psychology, Corporate Law, Financing and Taxation provides a unique perspective on business. Robert has taken a synergistic approach to his broad experience profile with the creation of the FRANCHISE SUCCESS ACADEMY. This represents an opportunity to utilize his diverse strengths and life experiences in guiding people towards achieving their success.
Robert lives by the mantra: Life is a team sport!
