Today’s episode is a REWIND episode with Janice Bryant Howroyd, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of The ACT-1 Group, the largest privately held, woman-owned workforce solutions company founded in the U.S.
I love this episode because Janice exudes confidence, energy, and just makes you want to walk into a room and take up space.
As Auntie Janice (as I now refer to her in my head) likes to say, “knowledge married to experience breeds confidence.” When you have the experience and knowledge you must own that confidence. I listened to this episode twice as I was riding to the Today Show for my appearance in August 2018, and it really did give me confidence.
I often re-listen to this episode whenever I’m nervous about rising to a new level in my business.
I’m excited for you to hear Janice share how she became the first African American woman to operate a company that generates more than $1 billion in annual revenue.
