In a captivating interview with Truck N Hustle, Ashley William shares her inspiring journey of defying the odds and how she went from growing up in a poor neighborhood to becoming a successful entrepreneur. The biggest lesson one can learn from Williams’ life is that going to college while you’re a mother can prove to be a rewarding experience.
In Houston, where she was born and raised, Williams proved to be a bright student throughout her school years. She majored in management at Texas Southern University, where she also studied accounting. Before embarking on her trucking career, Williams held multiple jobs. She taught geometry at a local school district and worked as a financial advisor in the district school.
Even though her father worked as a trucker, Williams was never interested in trucking. It was only after her friend introduced her to trucking and taught her to dispatch and the ropes that she began making money. She learned quickly and within the first week, she managed to earn $11k, then $13k in the next week. Her friend, who had taught her to be a dispatcher, became insecure and jealous when she saw the amount of money Williams was making. The authority quickly forced her out, but Williams was able to create her own dispatch company.
