Global Hire Placement Services Inc.
#210-4935 55 Avenue, Edmonton AB
What or who inspired you to start your business?
The big boom of 2006 inspired us ultimately to take our knowledge to a bigger level. There were so many job gaps in Edmonton and not enough qualified individuals to fill them up. Big and small companies were being affected; we saw this and just confronted them with a solution.
What are your most popular products or services?
I often make a joke that we sell people. It’s not trafficking but we do offer companies the opportunity to hire a foreign worker in order to fill their job orders.
What do you love most about what you do?
When the workers first arrive; they are thankful for this opportunity. From making $20CAD monthly in their country; to making $3000CAD to take care of their family back home
How do you balance being a mom and entrepreneur?
I am thankful that I am in partnership with my husband. We share the load of being parents and in business. I choose my own hours and make sure my children come first.
What single piece of advice would you give moms starting their business?
Don’t ever give up your dreams. It’s challenging to start up; but you will see the result. Also, make sure you’re surrounded by people who ultimately support you.
How do you relax?
I go dancing when I need to release energy. I watch cartoons to escape reality.
What place inspires you and why?
When I’m near the ocean, I get inspiration to expand my dreams or create new ones. The calm but yet the ruffled waves seem to relax me and open my “outside the box” thoughts.
What is your biggest fear?
The more ideas that come to us, the more we expand and that means the more time away from our life and our goal to retire.
What is your motto?
“Do one thing every day that scares you.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt
What motivates you?
My family motivates me. They should live life to the fullest, and so do I. This is why we work hard.
What makes you GO?
My husband and I feed off each other so well, that we both motivate the other to Go. It’s an adrenaline rush.
