Meet Nancy Dron
It all started in small town Saskatchewan. Chris Walker, a fireman by trade, had always had an entrepreneurial dream. When an opportunity to purchase a promotional business arose, he went for it. Nancy knew this was her husband’s vision and although at this point, it was more his project than hers, she supported him wholeheartedly.
When the couple decided to move to Williams Lake to be closer to family, they brought all of the business equipment with them but let it rest in storage while they settled into their new home.
In late 2014, Nancy, who still worked part time as a paramedic, was beginning to feel an itch to get back into business. The couple decided to pull out all that equipment, dust it off and look for a place to set up shop. It didn’t take long to find a location that was perfect and by March of 2015, they were able to open Do-More Promotional.
The business took off faster than the couple expected and Chris and Nancy where busy working seven days a week. The project that originally started off as Chris’s had grown so significantly that he wasn’t able to do it alone. Nancy was eager to learn as Chris gave her hands on training of all the ins and outs of the business; teaching her everything he knew. Unfortunately, in 2016, tragedy struck. Chris contracted a rare form of cancer that quickly made its way through his body and sadly, ultimately took his life.
After his passing, Nancy debated whether or not this business was hers. But upon contemplating, she realized this may have started out as Chris’s commitment, but it had grown into something that they did together. She made a conscious decision to continue the business in honour of Chris. Nancy brought in a new right hand, Amber, to help and the two have continued to grow Do More Promotional even bigger than before.
The business owner knows that Chris would be proud of the changes that have been made and the direction the shop is headed in. She now feels confident in her new title and is forever grateful to have had such an amazing teacher.
Nancy and Amber are excited for the growth of Do More Promotional and even more happy to be welcomed and supported by such an amazing community like Williams Lake.
