Julia Stewart excelled from waitress to CEO
It’s been said that people have to start from the bottom if they want to reach the top. While it may seem silly to think that way, the concept is accurate for some, if not many successful people. Look at Julia Stewart’s story, for example.
One of the most powerful women in the restaurant industry started as a waitress at IHOP, the pancake house restaurant chain. Then, she climbed up the corporate ladder little by little until she became IHOP’s CEO and had enough money to acquire Applebee’s.
