Last night I met Josl Huter and his beautiful wife Elfriede. In 1964 Josl started one of Ontario’s finest ski resorts in Mount St. Louis. He and his wife have been in business for almost 50 years. Building with their hands what has become their legacy. Josl was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 1958 and was given only 6 months to live. Josl would have none of that, he decided to undergo some very dangerous and unproven surgery to remove the ping pong ball sized tumour from his brain. He survived and is here to tell his story.
I was honoured to be able to tell their story last night at a dinner in part for them. It was wonderful. I asked Josl and Elfride their secret to success. Josl responded quickly and honestly, stay involved in your business and be honest. If you do that you will succeed. True.
I raised a glass in honour of these two wonderful people. They are such a hard working honest couple, they make me want to work a little harder.
No question today, just a challenge, ask yourself, are you truly hard working and honest? I hope so.
