Qualicum Beach mom gives into family pressure, quits safe Town Hall job, and instantly finds gold in her revived online business


Qualicum Beach, September 12, 2017: Vancouver Island parents don’t have to feel strapped to jobs that interfere with their families’ well-being. Merideth Bisiker, who recently quit her government job with the Town of Qualicum Beach due to the pressures of raising her youngest daughter with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), built a business as a money and business coach and online business consultant.

“I needed flexibility to accommodate my youngest daughter’s unique needs related to her ASD diagnosis, and so after a breakdown in the bathroom of Town Hall, and a subsequent night of crying and soul-searching, I told my husband the next morning that I was giving my notice,” says Merideth.

Taking her 20+ years of accounting and finance work, Merideth decided to attain her Certified Money Coach (CMC)® certifcation. And despite resisting growing the business due to security of a safe job, Merideth spent every possible spare minute developing her online consulting. She adds, “Leaving my job was one of the most difficult decisions I’ve ever made. Not only was I leaving the security of government employment, but I left on a prayer that my existing online consulting business would grow fast enough to make a significant contribution to our family income.”

Early mornings and weekend work paid off quickly. Within weeks after quitting her job, Merideth became a business partner with a core group of international woman entrepreneurs who are expanding several influential businesses. She also continues to help small business owners in Canada and the United States grow their online reach and influence.

Today, Merideth Bisiker is preparing for her workshops that help fellow Vancouver Island parents in her community take business and entrepreneurial ideas and make them a reality.
