Company: Brilliantly Coordinated Ventures
Location: Prince Albert, Saskatchewan
After selling her cab business in 2013, Sherry Ouellette decided it was time to pursue her passion of helping others. Now a certified law of attraction life coach and event specialist for Brilliantly Coordinated Ventures, Ms. Ouellette organizes events for all occasions, including birthdays, anniversaries and fundraisers. Her ability to relate well to others has supported her success in this industry: “I accept people as they are and don’t expect them to be or do something else,” she says, explaining that this acceptance has been a major professional strength.
Ms. Ouellette’s initial career in the transportation industry stemmed from a 60-year family cab business, through which she gained valuable experience in marketing, management and business development. Driven to succeed in the career area she was passionate about, she sold P.A. Grey Cab Ltd. and became a certified event specialist and funeral celebrant. Ms. Ouellette also has certification in the law of attraction, a philosophy that encourages positive thought patterns. Hoping to further assist her clientele, she is currently pursuing a college degree in psychology.
Convinced that change is essential to growth, Ms. Ouellette has the ability to make professional and personal changes when necessary. She is always looking for ways to improve staffing for her company, and she hopes to expand to the wedding-planning sector of the event-planning industry one day. Passionate about reaching out to others through event planning, Ms. Ouellette hopes to be remembered for her respect and kindness.
Ms. Ouellette is motivated by a strong sense of compassion and affiliated with several animal rights organizations as well as Equality Now, an organization dedicated to preventing violence against women on a global scale. When she isn’t working, she enjoys swimming and spending time with her loved ones. Ms. Ouellette is also a professional makeup artist and devotes time to special effects makeup.
