Entrepreneurship is a demanding and challenging career path
that requires a unique set of skills and traits such as risk-taking,
determination, creativity, and adaptability. Not everyone is cut out for it as
it can involve long hours, creating your own structure, financial uncertainty,
and stress related to decision-making. Often people do not find themselves in
an entrepreneurial role until later in life.
As a young university student, Realtor® Micah Pelster was unusually clear eyed in determining that entrepreneurship was meant for him. Despite taking part time studies at MacEwan University, it was time for him to break into the real estate industry. He decided to start his business and begin making a name for himself.

When Realtor® Lynda Brookshire shares her tagline “Live your best life at the Alabama Gulf Coast,” she is thinking beyond real estate and relocating to sandy shores. Along with helping clients find their dream home, she is dedicated to letting the community know that health is wealth. Her friends and family tease that “she is gonna get you a house or get you a kidney…or both.”
Brookshire and her husband, Loyd, moved to Gulf Shores in October 2017. After a series of health challenges that landed Loyd in the hospital multiple times within a span of two years, Brookshire realized it was her mission to increase awareness for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), organ donation, and the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle. She believes sharing their experience can help others give, receive, or maximize the gift of life.
