Check out this episode very close to my heart, as we go down memory lane! Janice Bryant Howroyd is the founder and CEO of The ActOne Group, an award-winning company in the human resources industry. The ActOne Group is a multi-billion dollar business she started with just about $1500 in savings. But Janice is more than an incredible businesswoman with tons of accolades and accomplishments under her belt. Janice has lived a phenomenal life that, while filled with challenges, can inspire anyone in pursuit of changing the course of their own history. In this episode, she talks to me about living in a Bible-based community in the Deep South and the supportive environment Janice’s parents created for her, as well as 10 other siblings. We also dive deep into her experience of being the ONLY student of color to integrate at an white school in 11th grade — and why she calls it the worst year of her life. Let's relisten and replay together!
