Justin Edgar of Mercedes-Benz Downtown Calgary on Living Your Best Life

When it comes to ambition and drive, there is no denying just how determined Justin Edgar is. For the last ten years, Justin has been working with Mercedes-Benz Downtown Calgary and has served as a Service Advisor, Sales and Leasing Consultant, Service Manager, Sales Manager and, for the last 3 years, as General Sales Manager. His motivation, work ethic, and active involvement in his community are what the Adesso brand is all about. We wanted to know more about what it means to live your best life from Justin's perspective, so we sat down for a quick chat.
How would you describe your personal sense of style? 
I actually had to Google this question! Google says I’m somewhere between “Corporate Powerhouse” and “Prepster”. My favourite places to shop are Forman's Menswear, Nordstrom, Harry Rosen, Hugo Boss, and Brinkhaus.
What is your favourite, unstylish outfit? 
My favourite, but worst ootd, is board shorts with a tank top and swim loafers.
What three things do you need to make it through the day?
I have a three-part plan for attacking my day: 
 1. Start each day with a plan 
2. Fulfill the plan without any excuses 
3. When you've completed your plan, remind yourself why you did it in the first place 
When you aren’t working what does your ideal day look like?
I like to wake up early and hit the gym hard. I’ll sneak a quick peek at my emails to make sure there is nothing urgent that needs my attention at the store. If my kids aren’t in school, I like to find an activity for us all to do during the day. But if they are in school, I’ll catch up on house projects and maybe even find a hockey game to join. I love to cook. I really enjoy making dinner for my family and having a nice glass of wine.
What words do you live your life by?
My mantra is: don’t let today be the day that bad habits are created.

What are your three tips for living the best life possible?
My three tips are to be healthy, happy, and successful. If I give myself attention in those specific categories (and in that order) everything else seems to fall into place.  If you don’t have your health, it’s hard to focus on anything else. If you are in a positive happy environment, you can generally overcome any daily issues that arise. Personal success whether it be family, financial, or employment is needed to keep me driven and ambitious.
