Behind every great man is… a well-made bed.
Or at least, it’s one of the things in the vicinity of the great Fazi Toor, an Associate at RBC Global Asset Management. Relying on that simple rule, as well as a few other words of wisdom, have led Fazi down the successful path he walks today. We had a chance to sit down with him to glean some of these nuggets for ourselves. Take a read for more below.
The best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
The best piece of advice I’ve ever received is the 50, 30, 20 budget. You take 50% of your earnings and spend them on your needs, the 30% you spend on your wants and the 20% you put in your savings.
Who is someone you look up to?
Princess Diana. She lead by her heart, not by her head.
First thing you do when you wake up in the morning is?
My mom always says you can’t have a productive day if you don’t do the first task of the day: make your bed. So that’s the first thing I do!
Finish this sentence: I couldn’t do what I do without…
Oh my gosh, my calendar and my to do list and my reminders. I cannot do anything without that.
How did you get started?
So during university, I got my first job as a teller and from there it got me passionate about finance, about credit and that led me to continue to RBC where I am today.
What type of Notable are you?
I’m a “Notable professional”.
Tell me about why you love your job and the cool things that you get to do.
I love my job because we have the best work culture and excellent peer support. Everyone is always there for you. I believe work culture really adds to your productivity and also to the motivation to show up at work every day. I think that’s what sets my job apart from a lot of others that I’ve done in the past.
What does ambition mean to you?
Ambition means striving to go do what you want to do while maybe not necessarily putting money in your employers pocket – strive for what you want to do.
Looking back, are there moments that clearly stand out as being defining moments in your life?
A defining moment for me was being hand selected to be on the Notable Board!
