“There are thoughts, and feelings, and actions that I (chose) to embrace along the way, because I closely follow the principles of Think and Grow Rich, that allowed us to have success, and I know that if others read this story, face similar situations, and do what I did, then they can get through the hard times and find the good.”     

What if you could turn your biggest defeat into your proudest moment?

Entrepreneur and marketing maverick Grant Findlay-Shirras, a Richard Ivey School of Business graduate, was bootstrapped and deeply in debt when his fledgling startup, Parkbench.com, was suddenly threatened with a class-action lawsuit.

Faced with litigation fees, betrayal, credit card disputes, and the loss of his founding partner, Grant needed to find a way to restore his business to profitability and salvage his reputation. His decision to persevere in his passion for helping small business owners succeed at marketing was pivotal, resulting in a remarkable career journey that has made Grant’s tech company, Parkbench.com, the #1 marketing platform for real estate professionals in North America.

Drawing on the principles he learned from his Napolean Hill mentorship, Grant maintained an unwavering enthusiasm in his vision, tirelessly working to promote and share his unique marketing solution with other business owners.  Without investors to fund revenue growth, or staff to build a pipeline, Grant and his partner Amanda Newman grew Parkbench’s monthly revenue from $80K to over $500K. Within 3 months, their net profit rose 20%, proving the efficiency of their platform as a powerful lead and referral generator.

Today, Grant continues to fulfill his vision of helping local business owners make more money and become a local leader. Entrepreneurs facing adversity will find encouragement and inspiration from Grant’s story of perseverance, determination and ultimate triumph.
