Black female Entrepreneur

This mother of five has struggled to become the entrepreneur she desires to be, because of the lack of income and opportunity.  Hi my name is Lynette and I am a black 49 year old single mother of five and 12 grandchildren, with a desire to tap into the male dominant world of trucking.  Raising five children has been hard but rewarding. It has taught me that I have the strength and resilience to do anything. I am also taking care of my 75 year old mother. My father was a truck driver. He would take me and my siblings on local runs.  I loved being on the truck with him. It made me feel strong and it was exciting, along with the special moments we shared.  Unfortunately, he had a terrible accident coming home from Norfolk,Virginia. It had been raining with thunder and lightening. The lightening bolt struck the antenna and exploded in the inside of the cab. My father lost control and went over the side of the Chesapeake Bay bridge and drowned.  That was truly one of the hardest days of my life. My father was a great man and we had a very close bond. I want to carry on his legacy, to hold onto that piece of him that we shared. Please help me to do that by donating what you can. I want to be one of the successful women in the trucking business. Help me be that by helping purchase a truck, to build a profitable business that I am able to give jobs to women like me. We are needed in today’s world.  I want to leave a legacy to my children and grandchildren, and with hour help I will be able to accomplish that. Thank you in advance to all that will help and those that want to and can’t.  I appreciate and am grateful to all.

Thank you!
