Do you have a mantra or phrase you live by? What is it?
Everything happens for a reason. As an entrepreneur and in life, at times, things may not go as planned or as you had hoped, but I believe that everything happens for a reason. Please don’t dwell on the negatives or let them get you down; your experiences, both positive and negative, are all part of a bigger plan for you. Perseverance is required to build your business and life in a way that serves yourself and your community.
What is your number one business goal this year?
After taking two start-up companies into sustainable businesses, it is time to begin the third venture. This new opportunity is a joint venture with a fellow HR professional. Mavin Hub is a unique opportunity for us to utilize our past experience to help individuals starting a new career or looking to change careers. Whether you are a recent grad, new to Canada, or a seasoned professional looking for a career change or promotion, a Mavin is here to coach you every step of the way.
What is your number one priority when it comes to your career and daily work?
My number one priority is to set goals and stick to them, to do what I say I am going to do. I make lists of things to accomplish daily in the short term as well as long-term goals. The more organized I am and forward-thinking, the more things I can get done. Using this approach has been one of the main tools I have used to accomplish my goals as a business owner and in my personal life.
What is your favourite thing about what you do in your career and why?
My favourite thing about my career is getting to know so many great people. I have wonderful clients I get to work with, many of whom are for years. I get to feel like a part of their team. In recruiting, I speak to many people with different skill sets and experiences, and I am always learning something new when conducting interviews.
What makes you motivated on a daily basis?
I like to have a sense of accomplishment. Whether it is working to fill a role for a client, working towards completing an HR project or growing and harvesting a crop, I like working towards a goal and seeing it through to the end.
