Janet Davie carved her career out of pure grit and determination.
As a 19 year-old, Janet started “on the ground floor” working at a butcher shop. The goal was to take care of her family, and she did that while taking every learning opportunity available.
After working her way up to a bookkeeper position, she realized that she could become the Controller, so that’s what she became.
“Failure was not an option for me,” says Janet. “I led with my chin, and was always determined to figure out the processes required to move myself and my company forward.”
She put a good thirty years into business strategy, and as a senior financial executive she led operations teams in supply chain management, human resources and the administrative team – on the side. Eventually, she says, she hit a wall. “I burnt out, and someone introduced me to a coach,” she says. “I started to shift. I started realizing that I was really stressed out and uptight, and that my career had gone well beyond its original intention of supporting my family. I realized that I was stuck, I needed to let go of the things that were holding me back.”
