About Our Guest
Cherri was a nurse living in Georgia when she decided to completely change careers and become a truck driver. Step-by-step she added various certifications and endorsements to her trucking resume’, and later, with fifteen years of experience behind her, started her own trucking business.
Although as a woman in a non-traditional industry for women, Cherri continued to grow her business, following her business plan, and finding areas in her industry that were lacking where she could fill in the gaps.
One of her expansions included starting a training center in less-known parts of the trucking arena.

What Our Guest Talked About
Cherri discussed how she has successfully navigated growing her business to be in a position to receive larger, often multi-million-dollar contracts by establishing relationships, entering into valuable partnerships, doing her due diligence, and being prepared when the opportunities arrived.
Words of Wisdom
Cherri advises our listeners to keep the faith, have lots of cheerleaders in your corner, and to follow the mantra of “Nemo” in the famous movie and “Just Keep Swimming!”
