Alright – so today we’ve got the honor of introducing you to Shayla Moore. We think you’ll enjoy our conversation, we’ve shared it below.
Shayla , thanks for joining us, excited to have you contributing your stories and insights. So, what do you think about family businesses? Would you want your children or other family members to one day join your business?
My thoughts on family and business is to love your family, set goals, and go for it. I have always worked in the corporate world mainly as a Sales Account Executive. Although I enjoyed it. I wanted to do something that I could call my own, something fulfilling. I wanted to leave a legacy for my children.
Awesome – so before we get into the rest of our questions, can you briefly introduce yourself to our readers.
I am the proud owner of Brentley Brothers Logistics Inc. of which I am a Freight Broker. I also host a class on Udemy called Accelerate Freight Broker Training by Shayla Moore, which teaches anyone steps of how to become a Freight Broker. I enjoy what I do and helping others do the same. It’s rewarding and challenging at the same time. I also own a AAU basketball Organization called the Houston Ball Kings.
How’d you think through whether to sell directly on your own site or through a platform like Amazon, Etsy, Cratejoy, etc.
When it comes to Platforms like Amazon, YouTube etc. anyone can create and sell anything. It’s great because they have built a platform for people to model after and help anyone, develop and create a successful business. I have a Truckers Mile tracker journal on Amazon, Journal A Million Dollar Idea and an inspirational Journal.
How did you put together the initial capital you needed to start your business?
We all know that sometimes the initial start up investment for a business can be the hardest to secure. At least that was the case for me. When I decided to start my Freight Broker Business the pandemic has just hit. I was laid off and had to fine something to do to make money. So I used a portion of my 401k, from my previous job, and part of my savings to start my business. One thing that I had to discover is creative ways to raise capital.
