LINDA HENDERSON

"My journey as an entrepreneur started in 2011. Previous to that, I worked for 25 odd years for others. My thank you gift for years of services was to be FIRED! This was a devastating day for me and left me reeling from everything that I knew to be true. My career was at an all-time low. 
As it turned out, my devastating day turned out to be the beginning of great days. One of the shareholders of Petrotag approached me regarding purchasing the company. My background was primarily in bookkeeping, with some sales and management. I was definitely interested but had a huge learning curve ahead of me. This was a highly technical company that manufactured, installed and serviced tank monitoring in the oil and gas industry. But I really wanted to try it on my own, so we purchased Petrotag Technologies Inc. in the fall of 2011. The purchase price had a 5-year plan to pay it off. By adjusting some low-hanging fruit, we paid it off in 1.5 years!"

DANIELLE ROBSON

At age 18, Danielle Robson was living in Alberta and going to university, with plans to become a lawyer. Her best friend’s dad owned several Tim Hortons franchises in Edmonton and one of Danielle’s jobs was working for him. He recognized something special about Danielle and threw out the idea that she should apply for her own store. With support from her family, they did, and three weeks later, in June 2003, they had their first Tim Hortons store in Saskatoon, on Fairlight Drive.

Fast forward 15 years, and “Hurricane Dani” shows no signs of slowing down, having just opened its tenth Tim Hortons store. They also own two Mr. Mikes restaurants. With over 300 employees and a young family at home with three kids under age 10, what drives Danielle Robson? Talking with Danielle, she’ll admit she thrives in chaos and jokes that if she wasn’t having a baby or opening a store, she would be bored. Her definition of boredom is different from most people’s.

The Life-Changing Benefits of Business Coaching

In 1991, I joined a coaching program called The Strategic Coach which was run by Dan Sullivan out of Toronto. The program has since gone international and has thousands of participants involved globally. Put very simply, it is intended for individuals who are interested in growing both personally and professionally. The goal is for participants to have a great personal life with lots of time off, as well as a great business that generates a lifestyle for them that allows them to live a preferred life.


Why Consider Business Coaching?


Most people think that in order to be successful in business, you have to give away all of your time or to have time off you have to give away money. This program helped me build a good business and have a great personal life. The program offers tools that I can use to enable me to have both personal and professional growth. If you are a business owner, at some point you will likely develop the feeling of complexity. What this means is you simply have run out of time and you can’t get any more results. In fact, running out of time means that you have already potentially cut into a lot of your own personal time as well. The program that I got involved with is not the same program that I’m in today but has many similar characteristics. 


In order to achieve personal and professional growth, you need to have a good team around you. You must identify what your unique abilities are and try to operate in that area. By doing this, you will generally work in areas of your business that give you energy and are usually associated with the highest economic bang for the buck. This means you have to delegate. In order to delegate, it’s critical that you empower people by ensuring they know what they are doing and have the necessary tools and resources. You will also be building empowerment so that bigger results can be made, and making an investment back into your business. Many times when business owners are adding employees they look at it as a cost. It is actually an investment and, if done properly, will yield results that are greater than what you invested.


This is just scratching the surface on coaching and what it’s done for me. If you ask me who needs coaching in business, I would say that everyone needs coaching. But it’s important also that you hit that scene of complexity, you still want to grow, and you’re willing to spend the time and money to do so. If each of those criteria is met, business coaching is something I strongly recommend you pursue.

Are You A Small Business Owner in Saskatoon Looking to Get To The Next Level?

Chances are you are too busy doing things you shouldn't be and that is restricting your growth and potential! Business consulting or management consulting involves the use of an independent, objective professional as a problem solver and ambassador of lasting change...that's where Synergy Business Solutions comes in! 

Who Is Synergy Business Solutions and How Can They Help? 

Synergy Business Solutions is owned by Linda Henderson and Danielle Robson. If you are familiar with the Saskatoon business scene you may have already heard of these two dynamic ladies. When we heard they were getting together to start a business, we knew that it would result in something special. Read about their entrepreneurial journeys below to see why we were excited! . 

Linda Henderson- VP Operations 

Ironically Linda's journey as a serial entrepreneur started out the same time and the the same way as Sara the Trusted founders did! In 2011 Linda and Sara were both fired from their jobs. That awful moment in their lives ended up being the best thing that could have happened to them.

Linda's background was primarily in bookkeeping, with some sales and management that she had picked up on the way in her 25-year career. One of the shareholders of PetroTag ( a technology company serving the oil and gas sector) approached her to ask if she wanted to buy the company. After brushing many doubts aside she became the owner in the fall of 2011. Linda had a 5-year plan to pay it off and ended up paying it off in 1.5 years!  Riding the wave of success she decided to keep the momentum going and started another business in 2013, Crazy Cowboys Instrumentation, followed by a 3rd business in 2015! She was ( and still is ) one of the most successful and respected women entrepreneurs in Saskatchewan's energy industry! 

In 2016 Linda thought it made sense to tap into her experience and start a bookkeeping company Synergy Bookkeeping, to take care of the financials of these companies. The lease on her rental space was coming up and she was a little tired of paying rent, so started shopping around for a building. In April of 2016, she ended up purchasing the very building she was fired in six years previously! 

" Renovating that building was one of the more empowering moments for me. All of the self-doubt went out with the boardroom walls to the Loraas bin."  Linda Henderson
Today life in Linda's world is more about supporting and empowering others in their business life. Synergy Bookkeeping has changed its name to Synergy Business Solutions and Linda is especially passionate about the Business Support Group that meets once a month at the Synergy offices ( in that board room!)

Sara had the opportunity to interview Linda for the WESK  - Shaken With A Twist Series a few years ago - see the full interview here.    

Danielle Robson- President

When Dani was just 18, a family friend who was a Tim Hortons franchisee saw she had a huge entrepreneurial spirit and he suggested she apply for a Tim Hortons Franchise in Saskatoon. Three weeks later, in June 2003, with support from her family, she decided to ditch her law school plans, and they had their first Tim Hortons store in Saskatoon, on Fairlight Drive.

Fast forward many years, and “Hurricane Dani” shows no signs of slowing down. They have ten Tim Hortons stores and two Mr Mikes restaurants. With over 300 employees and a young family at home with three kids under age 10. 

I thrive in chaos and if I wasn’t having a baby or opening a store, I would be bored. Danielle Robson

Danielle is driven to succeed and she is passionate about sharing her skills and helping other entrepreneurs reach their full potential!
