Simeon is the proud father of 2 sons and the grandfather of 5 wonderful grandchildren. Simeon have been married to the most amazing woman for over 39 years. As a long time entrepreneur, Simeon has a love of small business. His passion is giving small business owners the tools to protect their businesses and their families. Simeon does this by marketing legal plans through LegalShield as an Independent Associate. As a small business owner, a “Life Event” can be devastating to both the family and to the business.
On July 2, 2013, Simeon had one of those “Life Events”! A STROKE! This day will forever change the way Simeon looked at Life. Having a stroke or any other “Life Event” changes the whole dynamics of family, friends and business. While in GF Strong Hospital, Simeon started writing about my new challenges on my iPad. In his blog “aluckystroke.com”, Simeon shares about learning to take the challenges he was going through and to laugh at himself along the way.
The intent of the blog was to stretch his brain–brain training so-to speak. Simeon was getting lots of physical rehabilitation. Simeonneeded to whip my brain back into shape. Along the way Simeon discovered how much he loved to write.

10 Things I have learned from the YVR Bloggers – Cathy Ross
YVR Bloggers helped this Adventure Racer turned Hair Salon Owner discover how to plug into the world of social media! When my business partner asked me to market the salon on Social Media, I quickly had to figure out what it was and how to interact with it. I didn’t even have a personal Facebook account! Not to mention that I had no idea what ‘pinning’ was! Thankfully, YVR bloggers have given me some tips on how to utilize this ‘New To Me’ Internet based media platform!
Cathy is one of the owners of the Madison Avenue Shampoo Bar. She has been a competitive athlete throughout her life – played soccer for Canada, completed the 125 kilometre ‘Canadian Death Race’, raced her mountain bike for 886 km across South Africa and has been a competitor in several other multi day adventure races. After retiring from a lengthy career in law enforcement, Cathy has gone on to become a Co-Active Coach, Wilderness Leader, mom and business owner. Needless to say, Cathy brings a unique perspective and passion to Madison Avenue!
