Challenges make you stronger
Challenges are an excellent opportunity for growth. They test your resolve and commitment to your goals. And when you overcome them, you develop emotional and mental strength. Working in labor always means obstacles, and Leah says it often challenged her up to become stronger. She thinks that suppression brings out the best in people and builds character.
Leah’s professional journey and growth as a leadership
Leah has always had an entrepreneurial spirit, which guided her to build her company at 21. They opened in 1996 and she was new to this beautiful country, the time after that they expanded to Edmonton and bought their office location in Dyer banks. This growth taught everyone involved in the company to trust themselves and their instincts.
Leah has been in the global recruitment industry for over 25 years. “As the owner, you’re responsible for everything, so that involves learning to designate labors, believe in your staff, and help the growth of the company. I define myself as incredibly strong-witted and determinate,” she says. She further states that the best recognition of her effort was to be nominated by RBC and ATB as female entrepreneur of the year.
Leah claims that she has not yet achieved all that she dreamed of. She wants to build and support an orphanage for children, as she has always believed that senior citizens and children are the most important base of our society.
Plans for the future of Helping Hand Staffing Services
