Jarrett Vaughan is not the sort of individual whose life fits neatly into a mold. He enjoys blending opportunity with action, bohemian with strategist, and intellect with faith. His diverse interests, pursuits and life experiences give him a broad palette for rich conversation and perspective.
After graduating from Capilano University with a bachelor's degree in Tourism Management, Jarrett experienced a financial awakening and started a real estate investing company (Blue Aspect Properties) in BC and Alberta, which focuses on long-term wealth development for his investors.
Jarrett also holds a Masters of Arts in Tourism and Leisure Management from University of Brighton in the UK and a Masters of Science in Tourism Management from Ecole de Management de Normandie in France. He spent 10 years working in the luxury hotel business, most recently for Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. He is currently an Adjunct Professor, teaching marketing at UBC Sauder School of Business and Langara College, and he has worked in marketing and guest experience consulting on projects in France, UK, Swaziland, Morocco, Mauritius and Canada. A real estate investor, entrepreneur, urban farmer and musician, Jarrett also owns Vancouver City Plumbing where he puts his skills to work in business operations.
On the latest episode of The Everyday Millionaire, Jarrett shares his early fascination with the power of real estate which eventually led him to the REIN community. He also discusses his upbringing, the story of how he met his wife, and he reflects on their daughter Sailor's vibrancy and resiliency in the face of physical disabilities and health complications. Jarrett stresses the importance of not letting a circumstance or quality form our identity, and he talks about the value of making decisions which promote life-giving, positive energy, as well as the realism that sometimes in order to mentor or lift someone, we will also have energy-draining experiences.
