What inspired you to become a CEO?
When I was a little girl I was bounced around a lot. I moved from place to place never really set any roots until I was blessed with my bonus mother Susie Morgan. She was my inspiration to become a CEO. Being with her she taught me how value and evaluate my strength, and how to "own my own". After many years in the healthcare industry I decided to activate my strength and power by becoming an educator the healthcare field, assisting career development and owning my own Clinical Medical Laboratory Service. In 2005 I decided to take a further Leaf of faith as CEO in the male-dominated industry of Logistics. As the CEO of Freight Karma I have become a Trailblazer and cannot wait to see the manifestation of my hard work of 2021. "Let's Move Some Freight" LOL
What has been your most exciting accomplishment to date?
My most exciting accomplishment to date is definitely educating individuals in the post secondary realm. It doesn't matter if it's Hosting Lectures, providing CEU’s speaking in Logistics circles. Every time I educate someone it exhilarates me.
Any 2 pieces of advice you would share with emerging CEO's?
1. Take care of your Mental Health. Being a CEO is more than just being an owner of a business or executive in a business. Being a CEO is very stressful. It is so very important to take care of your mental health and take time for yourself, learn to say "No". That's the best piece of advice that I can provide to emerging CEO's take care of your mental health.
2. Build a Power Team. When you're a CEO it is very important to have a Power Team. Knowing other people's strengths could be your strongest point. You can't do it all! Outsourcing and delegated authority is okay micromanagement can be a death tool.
What is next for you in 2021?
I'm excited about 2021. Completing my Master's Degree and entering Doctoral Studies. My new book is in editing right now. I will be starting my YouTube channel. I have a new spice tea line coming out in 2021. A lot of my projects got held up the world became "Covid Crazy" so I'm looking forward to adjusting to our new normal and re-balancing my scales.
