Our Story

Achieve started out when 2 people (Andrea & Lisa) realized there was a need to help individuals realize their best life. Most people think they are alone in their struggles but truly everyone is a “work in progress”. They had an idea to bring motivated people together, those that had a burning desire to be more and to make a greater impact. In the beginning, 5 women stepped up to join Andrea and Lisa in the first “Fridays in the Woods”, a weekly Achievers accountability group that met every Friday, in a cozy cabin in the woods. In the span of 3 months, all 7 group members were seeing significant growth in the areas of their life they chose to focus on. Encouraged by their success, the partners began to put together a more formalized program so that they could impact more lives, Achieve Success By Design was born. Over the next several years, they perfected their program, to be delivered anywhere in the world digitally and leveraged technology to connect like-minded achievers together to amplify the success results. Success begets Success. Today, Achieve provides several programs that build onto the success of their original Success By Design program, helping people all around the world live inspired successful lives.

Andrea L. Wilson

P.Eng., MBA (Co-Founder)

Andrea emigrated from Jamaica with the sole purpose of completing her Engineering degree and getting an MBA, as she thought this was the path to her success. After years of climbing the corporate ladder, working twice as hard as everyone else just to fit which resulted in several health challenges, she was restructured out of my job. With this experience, she wanted to inspire others to not let society or others define their success or their ability to achieve their dreams.
Shortly after losing her job, Andrea founded Achieve as she wanted to help people, like herself, get a clear vision of what success looks like to them, create a path to this success and ultimately have the impact they desire.
Andrea is passionate about making a difference in the lives of others, and in addition to her work with Achieve, she is a Professor in the Business School at Humber Institute of Technology. Andrea has an Electrical Engineering Bachelor degree and a Master of Business Administration, however, what she is most proud of, is being the mother of 3 amazing daughters.

Lisa A. Scale

Co-founder

Lisa enjoyed great success as a portrait photographer earning accolades for her photography & entrepreneurial skills. Regardless of her success, after almost 3 decades, she felt miserable, finally realizing her values no longer aligned with her business or industry. Somewhere she forgot her dreams. Focusing on her values and desire to impact others, Lisa found joy in helping people live their purpose and in doing so, found hers. Today, she enjoys her location-independent life, teaching and coaching while living and travelling in Europe. Lisa’s passion to help young leaders began while teaching at college and university. Watching her own children struggle to prepare for life away from home, made her realize the need for the Achieve™ program. Following her dream to travel, Lisa recently relocated back to Canada after 2 years living in Europe with her husband and 3 children.
