Why Resilient Women in Business was Formed
Founder Cheryl Bishop believes we are all like a piece of a puzzle and somehow, we fit together to make a beautiful picture in this world of ours.
Since March of 2009 Cheryl has assisted a dear friend of hers, the owner of Make Your Mark training & consulting, to build the company, which today is known as an Academy for business owners. In 2017 the owner of the company decided to hire a CEO to assist Make Your Mark to grow to the next level of success, which Cheryl was excited for.
In March 2018, while the owner of Make Your Mark was on vacation with his family, the CEO had decided to give Cheryl an ultimatum to either do a certain job, lower her salary and remove the benefits she has with the owner, or walk out the door.
Cheryl at that time was shocked and extremely hurt. She found herself in a place of deep reflection as to why this would be happening. She had high respect for the owner and felt she could not walk out the door and create negative rumours for the marketplace would be shocked if Cheryl left.
Through this process Cheryl had to step up and show the team of Make Your Mark how resilient she is.
There were many days she did not want to go into the office and face the team; however, she pushed herself through this challenge as she knew this was happening for a reason.
Cheryl started asking God, “Why is this happening?” Through this questioning she heard God repeat the word “Resilient” several times. Through Cheryl’s process of searching to God she recognized He wanted her to create Resilient Women in Business.
In May 2018 the CEO left Make Your Mark as the owner of the company went to bat for Cheryl. She kept her job and still went ahead to build Resilient Women in Business as she has always wanted to hear God and heed his word. Now that she had heard Him, she needed to listen to his guidance to assist women in business.
In January 2019 Cheryl started monthly events to assist women in their business.
Cheryl has always had a heart to support women in business to achieve more.
