Black women currently are the most successful demographic of entrepreneurs according to federal statistics. One example is that of Kristi Jackson, co-owner of October Fourth Holdings LLC with partner Kevin Muhammad. The company provides daily freight logistics and transportation nationally.
Jackson is the also the founder of the Woman CEO Project, a think tank specifically for female entrepreneurs, hosting over forty business courses a year.
In 2013 Jackson was awarded “Women’s Organization of the Year” and in 2012 the “Humanitarian of the Year”.
“We are growing our fleet. We have a 5 year goal of how we’re going to do it. I’m really proud of us. This business requires a lot and we are up for the challenge,” Jackson said in regard to her trucking company. “People fall in love with the outcome, but try to avoid all the work involved.”
