Who has Inspired you in Business?
My greatest inspiration has always been my parents. My father was a foreman for the company he worked for. He was a leader to his crew and never hesitated when he needed to make a decision. He did what he had to do. He expected no less from me. He knew I could do it, so I never doubted I could. My mother is and will always be my Moral Compass – a true necessity for success in any endeavor. My second inspiration came from my mentor- one of the former owners of Niagara Helicopters, Ev McTaggart. She was a force to be reckoned with! Bright, strong and driven, she taught me that gender is simply a box on an information-gathering form.
