About us - Wake the Fun Up

Meet Adrienne & Bob

Great you're here!

We are Adrienne & Bob from Vancouver, Canada and we are Digital Entrepreneurs.

For decades we'd been tied to an industry (executive recruitment) that's been increasingly disrupted by technology. Our business kept us stuck in one location, and we were at the beck & call of our clients round the clock. We didn't have the freedom we imagined we would at our age... which is why we learned how to start an online business.

Our automated online business gives us the freedom to live the life we want - one where we get to travel and enjoy more time with our kids and grandkids.

Because it's is 100% internet-based,  we can work from anywhere. And because it's largely automated, we choose how much or how little time we want to spend on it. And the best bit - there's no limit to how much money we can earn!

We'd love to share with you the same training that helped us go from location-limited executive recruiters to digital entrepreneurs

So you too can live the life you want!

Our Journey

Our journey goes back to 1998 when we met through the Executive Recruitment business that Bob started in Vancouver, BC.

Working from home as a mother is possible when becoming a Digital Entrepreneur

Getting to spend more quality time with each other and our families was a big reason to start an online business

Bob had already had many exciting moments in his career. In the late 70s Bob was a professional NHL Hockey player, playing first for the  Atlanta Flames and later for the Vancouver Canucks.  He then went on to become a successful life insurance salesman, before venturing into the Executive Recruitment business in late 90s. That's when we met,  both of our lives changed for the better. We are grateful for having an amazing blended family with 7 kids and 5 grandkids. 

We weren't getting any younger and we also felt like we never had time to travel or spend enough quality time with our family. Our work was tied to where our clients were and we could foresee our industry was being disrupted by technology

"Tubing" in BC, Canada... We literally took a plunge!!

Enjoying our time in San Diego!

One day we were looking for inspiration and discovered a motivational video on Youtube.  Our eyes were opened to the digital world and its enormous possibilities when we met a guy who built a fully automated online business from scratch. That was exactly what we were looking for - freedom to live the life we want!

When we considered digital business opportunities we doubted ourselves.  Are we too old for this? How could we ever get past the hurdles of technology? Do we really have enough time to work on a second business? Do we need previous digital experience to be successful?

It all came down to our mindset and how much we wanted to make it work. It would have been easy to make excuses. We knew with our persistence, commitment and wisdom we would be successful. We took a leap of faith, and we're glad we did!  We were guided by talented mentors who had owned successful online businesses and really walked the talk . 

Starting a digital business has changed the way we see the world.

Ready for another adventure!

We have learned that running a digital business is not that different from running a traditional business. Everything still comes down to personal relationships - people want to work with people they like and trust. The work we do is meaningful, we work with people so they can live the life they want.
