Success Stories

Jake Birkland- Strength Camp - Kamloops, BC

Jake is a male youth who entered self employment services in order to compile a solid viable business plan for his fitness facility.  During that time Jake worked diligently through the process.  This process allowed him to take his business plan to several lenders who approved Jake for funding his start-up.  Since then Jake has consistently accessed business coaching services through our offices and attended various entrepreneurial workshops to assist him in growing his business. 

Jake has now been in business for 8 months and has created a great community connection.  He has held and been part of many charity events, including Heart and Stroke Foundation and presenting to local sports teams and the school district on the importance of health and fitness.  Jake has recently expanded his business, moving to a larger location and offering more classes.  He is a truly successful CF client.
