Sherri Stevens took a risk, and it paid off. Her decade long dream of being a flight attendant had fallen flat. After a couple of years in the industry, Sherri discovered, it was definitely not the profession for her. With no job and no money, Sherri left Toronto to live with her mother in a small apartment in her hometown of Woodstock.
Desperate to find work, Sherri, noticed that there was only one staffing service in the small southwestern Ontario city. Sherri started Stevens Resource group, which eventually evolved into an international workforce training and development company, with offices in Canada and the United States.
Sherri is a two-time recipient of the Women’s Executive Network Top 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada award, and now she actually owns WXN, an organization that works to advance, develop and recognize professional women in Canada.
On this episode of Run It Like a Girl, Sherri tells us, that as her business took off, some lessons were learned the hard way.
