Two days ago FourFour’s Jason Dickson spoke to Vancouver’s Facial Fitness manager Michael Waugh about his business and what it’s like working in a city where the sun can be blinding and where the humidity can be oppressive.
“Vancouver is a great place to work because it’s so hot,” Waugh said.
“In a city like that, there’s not much wind.”
“I’m a big fan of the summer and we do our best to stay warm and dry in the winter,” he continued.
“But there’s always the chance of a blustery day, or a wind chill that is a bit higher than normal.”
We do our warm-up in the gym, but if it’s a sunny day, we’ll do a lot of walking around and trying to get a little bit of sun in our faces, and maybe getting some facial fitness.
Waugh said that Vancouver’s cold weather is a real challenge for the team, which has been working with Facial in the city’s Downtown Eastside. “
And then when you get to the end of the day, you’ve got to go back to the gym and do some face and body exercises.”
Waugh said that Vancouver’s cold weather is a real challenge for the team, which has been working with Facial in the city’s Downtown Eastside.
“We’re still working with the weather, but the real challenge is the heat,” he said.
“The first time I went to Vancouver a few months ago, I was like, ‘Wow, I didn’t think I’d be doing this for a few years.
“When you look at the city, you can see a lot more green, a lot less trees, and a lot fewer people on the road,” he added. “
“So we’ve been working hard to get those things going in the summer months. “
When you look at the city, you can see a lot more green, a lot less trees, and a lot fewer people on the road,” he added.
“That’s a huge plus for us, and it’s something that we have to keep working towards.” “
Wiggins also revealed that the team is keen to get their new business off the ground in the future, so that they can focus on building their local community and helping people who need it the most. “

“It’s about helping people, and that’s what we’re going to be working on doing, and we’ve got lots of great volunteers who we’re really excited to have, and they’re going around and giving back, and doing things like helping with house cleaning and cleaning businesses, and helping out at a lot different local businesses, too,” he explained.
“It’s really important to have a good local presence and be an inclusive business, and if we can make a positive impact on the local community, we can build something really big.”
FourFourTwo’s Jason also spoke to Waugh, who has been with Facis for over a decade, and asked about how the team manages to stay on top of new and emerging businesses in the Vancouver area.
Wahntons business plan has seen four new businesses start up, as well as four more in the works.
While Waugh stressed that he’s not looking for a large investment, he said that he’d like to see a few more new businesses, as they are “still growing” and “have a long way to go”.
“There are a lot going on in the world of entrepreneurship in Vancouver right now,” he went on.
“There’s a lot that we’re doing and there’s a big amount of things that are being done, but we need more people to get involved, because we have a lot to build.”
FiveThirtyEight’s Kevin Linton also spoke with Waugh this week, about the challenges that face a business looking to start up in the region.
The business “One of the things we’re always trying to keep in mind when we’re starting a new business in the area is the local area,” he revealed.
It’s also important that “you’re not looking at a particular industry or market, because there are so many things going on”.
He added that it’s important to “build something local and a little different”, and to “make sure that you have a real business plan, and you’re building a business that people will trust, and people will work for”.
Watson also spoke about the benefits of being local, and how the experience of living in a community can also be valuable to business owners.
He said that if people in the community can “trust you, that’s going to have an effect on how they work”.
Five Thirty Eight’s Kevin Lewis also spoke a little more about the changes that are taking place in Vancouver, and the future of the city.
