My broad range of experience has had me question everything. Why do we do what we do? Who cares? What matters most?

Socrates said: “The Unexamined Life is Not Worth Living”

Joy is now passionately dedicated to helping others live the life of their dreams. What is it all about anyway? What is the true value of your contributions on this planet? We all get tired and face various personal challenges. Are you working to live or living to work? What is your mission? What gets you out of bed and thoroughly excited? It's her mission to build an environment for people to collaborate in order to support and fulfill their personal and business related missions. Let's see what exciting, colorful life-changing shifts our collective consciousness can create...

After Living the New Economy (& during)  because it will attract a big crowd, Joy wants to use the opportunity to promote membership ($8 lifetime). She is asking each of us to choose one global priority out of 8 (Education, Energy, Environment, Food/ Water, Justice, Distribution, Freedom, Health).

A few of Joy's personal (& quirky) quotes for you:

"When you are passionate, there is no competition."

"From impossible to I am Possible"

"Commit to cause & lay down your crown"

"Collaboration ignites collective consciousness.

"Consciousness creates."

“So relish in your highest thought of yourself.  Relinquish fear, doubt and despair.  Believe, dream, act.  Nothing is beyond your reach.”

“The industry of human potential is the next big industry that we have for our world to progress and move forward to an economic and global revival.  We have to utilize everybody’s intellect, everybody’s understanding of how things work.  And together, when each one adds in their contribution, we can move forward as a society.”

In this oncoming Age of Human Potential the power of the mind will be more fully explored and utilized.   From ancient times, there has been the sense that the mind has the potential to choose to create a “heaven out of hell” or a “hell out of heaven.”  (Milton) Dale Carnegie, one of the best teachers of human potential said, “It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy.  It is what you think about.

What does a Cruise mean to you? Gary Gallant – CruiseShipCenters

As a Cruise & Travel Professional at Expedia CruiseShipCenters and with a passion for people and travel, particularly cruises, Gary partnered with CruiseShipCenters after entering this industry in 2000. Gary holds two diplomas in the travel industry: a Travel & Tourism Business Management Diploma, and a Diploma of Travel & Tourism Foundations.  He is a Mobile Agent. This allows him to be flexible and available to fit with your schedule and needs.

Gary grew up in Alberta, starting school in St. Albert just outside of Edmonton. His father managed a very large mixed farm there and the family lived right on the edge of town: one side of the yeard was in town, and the other was on the farm. So Gary really had the best of both worlds. When he was in his early teens, his dad started his own business: a turf farm in St. Albert. This was very successful and that is where Gary started his working life; helping out on the turf farm.

Shortly after Gary completed High School, NAIT and BCIT he was bitten by the travel bug. He set out on a trek across Europe on his own. This changed his life as he experienced different cultures and the young people that lived there. It reaffirmed his optimistic view that planet Earth and all of its peoples were going to be OK.

When Gary returned from his travels, he went back to the family turf business. However, soon afterward he and his wife established a kitchen and crafts retail store in Langley; his first business! Later they purchased a stained glass business in Kitsilano, Vancouver area. It was the oldest continuously operating stained glass studio in Western Canada. They eventually sold that business and moved to Calgary to establish another studio called Tiffany Glass Centre, which was the largest of its kind in Calgary. After selling this business in the 80's during the recession at that time, they moved back to the west coast. By then they had 3 beautiful children.

At this time he definitely felt beaten, but not out! Gary then opened a picture framing gallery in Ladner which he operated for several years. His marriage ended and so did his business! But Gary loved being back on the coast.

And again, he went back with his family working with them in his dad's new venture, which was a specialty turf farm in Ft. Langley. It was at this time that he remarried and had his 4th child.

Gary's dad passed away at this same time, which devastated him. He had been working with Gary and his brother Tom building their own turf grass business. After his passing, Gary continued on with this plan and operated his own turf farm in Langley for several more years. Then his second marriage ended and again so did his business.

He joined CruiseShipCenters while still working with Walmart full time as a Department Manager. After several years with Walmart, he became a Store Manager with Starbuck's and then a Front Store Manager with Shoppers Drug Mart. All the while, Gary continued building his career in the cruise & travel industry working at it part-time.

In 2008 Gary decided to enter the travel industry full time, but first he took a year off to go back to college. Gary completed 2 diplomas in travel & tourism at Canadian Tourism College. After getting into the industry, he always had the desire to have a broader foundation in it and is happy he took that time to do that. After graduating from that program, he worked for the college in enrollments for a year before rejoining Expedia CruiseShipCenters, but full-time this time. And, Gary secured his position through the company's corporate head office.

That brings us to today, with more to come ... Gary is sure of that!

Gary's business niche is "Cruise Event Specialist". He creates cruise groups, retreats, training, incentive, and loyalty programs that provide lasting value to your organization.  It is all about relationships! Getting to know you and your business is his first priority, and his goal is to save you time and make the best use of your resources while still giving you awesome results.
