Yvonne Weld | Strategic Partner, Mentor

Yvonne Weld

President / Strategic Partner / Mentor

“I don’t just tell you what to do, I tell you how and why. I’m not afraid to get into your business and help you with the implementation.”

Yvonne Weld knows firsthand the entrepreneurial challenges of moving from practitioner to a busy multi-person business. She built her business as a virtual assistant from 2006 to 2017 and grew from solo to a team of 7 Virtual Assistants each with their own skills to compliment each other.

In 2017, she transitioned into the role of Business Coach / Consultant and started The Weld Group, which continues to exist today. The focus of this business is to assist business owners to create the systems and processes and standard operations manuals needed to have a strong business foundation.

Even as a Virtual Assistant, Yvonne mentored her business owner clients for years and became a sounding board for their business. She would not only offer suggestions and ideas to their issues but implement those ideas on their behalf so she not only knows what to do to succeed but also exactly how to get it done! She gained a reputation as so much more than a Virtual Assistant including business managers, strategists and implementers!

As a parent, she understands the care and empathy needed to help someone grow to their fullest potential. She applies those same skills to help her clients to feel supported and understood as they work through the best decisions and take the actions necessary to run the business of their dreams.

Over the years her favourite clients have been practitioners with a dream to build a thriving business. Her expertise is in hiring and building teams, delegating, systems and processes and she absolutely loves numbers and the role they play in business!

Yvonne’s gift of encouragement and tough love approach will hold you accountable for getting the results you want for your business so you can live the lifestyle you know you deserve.

Raj Grewal | Mentor

Raj Grewal


“Ever wondered what it takes to be a Successful Entrepreneur; let me tell you it takes a lot more than getting your hands on all those tricks & formulae. You need to apply it, be consistent at it and just keep repeating the success habits.”

Raj Grewal has broken the norm of his family by quitting a very established job to be the first (& only so far in his family) serial entrepreneur. From facing entrepreneurial challenges first time, then next time and almost every time; here's a thought that resonated with him - "Either you hire the professionals to do the job or spend on your own education". While learning various skills to be a successful business person he discovered a really old passion of his and was reunited with Coaching.

Raj believes Knowledge is Power & is like Real Money which by itself can not do anything unless we put it to good use. At one point in your Business Journey, you have to take that big leap to get ready & learn the skills that either reduce your effort or increase your returns. Learn the skill to be proactive rather than reactive, to be able to sense an opportunity and jump on it, sometimes Pivot or do anything that takes to match the books or even make profits without compromising on your integrity & honesty.

Don't be just the Employee or worker of your Business; Learn to Leverage skills that others around you have, some you can pay for completely by hiring them or some you can do consulting with for a lot less. To learn and implement how to work on the business rather than work in the business is one key approach that can help you grow substantially and take your business to success & heights never imagined before.

I chose to live the life I always wanted, then reverse engineered what all I needed for it. So if you want to live the lifestyle you dream or deserve of, this is your chance to bring us in the picture to CHANGE it. We will hold you accountable for all the success you are getting & you deserve.

Brennan Weld

Client Experience Manager

“I want to ensure everyone’s experience with BEST is THE best experience they have ever had with any organization or company!”

Brennan has always had an entrepreneurial bug and at a young age was using that passion to earn money doing everything from selling golf balls, selling chocolate bars from his locker at school to building and growing a summer camp for teens with a friend.

It was not a surprise he would want to join his mother’s team at The Weld Group and learn everything he could about supporting business owners.

His goal is to mentor and support young entrepreneurs to success! In the interim, he is learning everything he can by supporting our team of mentors and clients.

If you have a question or need additional support, Brennan is here to help!
