Also known as the Money Architect, grew up in a small town in South Carolina. Her journey in the Accounting industry was not a planned one. It was more like going with the flow, and she was at the right place and time.
Her rise to the top has its share of ups and downs. In one of her new jobs, she was in for a shock on the very first day. Watch out for that story and how she was taken aback.
And then, she found her feet in the business and studied end-to-end business operations and not just the accounting side of the industry. Her insights enabled her to genuinely support the business she was involved in with valuable suggestions.
One thing that stood out was her will to HELP the business.
And suddenly, she took a sabbatical from the business due to personal reasons. She then went on to do her MBA and returned to the trucking industry. However, it was in a different role now.
Later, Vanessa kickstarted her own business – Provision Accounting Solutions, which specialized in Accounting, Taxing, and an Advisory role, which she calls the icing on the cake.
During her discussion with Rahmel Wattley, she spoke about various things like insurance, driver pay, fuel costs, staff, financing vs. leasing equipment, and more. Her well-researched insights act as a masterclass for somebody just entering the trucking industry.
And the show’s highlight is “10 Secrets” or mistakes in the trucking industry that put people out of business. Do not miss out on the points.
As she rightly said before signing off, BUSINESS IS SERIOUS.
And it would be best if you were too.
