From the way he embraces technology in business to his mindset around the importance of self-reflection and awareness, Jean-Guy (JG) Francoeur exemplifies the futurization of real estate.
JG’s entrepreneurial tendencies sparked at a young age and continued to grow throughout his life. As a young child growing up in Northern Ontario, he fixed bikes and sold lemonade for cash, but it wasn’t until he attended college in Sault Ste. Marie that he realized his true passion for the game of business. After moving to Ottawa, JG changed the pathway he had set for himself in his last year of university, when he left school and started his own company.
Not long after deciding to pursue his dream, JG faced a turning point in his life as a result of an adverse personal event. Forced with making some very tough decisions in a short period of time, he embarked on a journey of self-discovery that led him to who he is today.
Fast forward to the present and JG owns multiple businesses, including an investment company and a spa. He is also the newest addition to REIN and LEGACY’s executive leadership team where he is the Chief Growth Officer (CGO), a perfect fit for his restlessly ambitious personality. JG has an impressive background that includes building a virtual company from the ground up, a history of cultivating strong and like-minded teams, and a notable investment portfolio. He aspires to impact future generations through entrepreneurship and wants to teach and inspire others to create more meaning, purpose and opportunity in their lives.
On the latest episode of The Everyday Millionaire, JG shares the story of how he got into business and discusses technology, the shifting real estate landscape and how he knew REIN was the right company for him.
