Coretta's story

I grew up in the small town of Edwards Ms, where the population is about 1000 people. I watched my mom work multiple jobs to provide for my sister and I. I was raised by a single mother after my mother and father divorced when I 10 years old. My mother is child number 14 of 17 children. My mother is the caregiver of my now 92-year-old grandmother. Starting my own business has awarded me the opportunity to help my mother with my grandmother. My mother is an entrepreneur, but she spends most of her time caring for my grandmother. My mother decided differently for her children after divorcing our father. When I was 13, my mother started her own business while working a full-time job as a parts clerk for Tyson Food. She spent many days working multiple jobs to provide for her family which included my grandmother, grandfather, and my great-grandmother. While growing up in the small town of Edwards MS, we spent most of our time in the yard playing basketball with our uncles. If I wanted to attend extracurricular activities, I had to go to another community. Also for necessities, we had to travel at least 30 miles as well. Employment was rare as well and to find a job I had to leave. There were no employment opportunities except for gas stations. Sometimes a fast food restaurant would come to the community, but they never lasted long. After spending all my life in Edwards, I decided to move to Terry MS, which is a small community outside of where my business is located. By moving, I've been awarded new opportunities that will assist me in serving my present community and the communities of Edwards, Utica, Bolton, Clinton and Jackson Mississippi. After taking the time to go back to college and obtaining a degree in business, I am now an entrepreneur. I will be able to service my hometown of Edwards Ms and make a significant impact to the people in the community. Professional Management Solutions will be able to service the entire Hinds County area of Mississippi and other states as well. Because of my mom's hard work ethics, determinations, and dreams, I obtained this entrepreneurial drive. Her role as an entrepreneurial taught me that nothing is impossible. My dreams for the future is to create generational wealth for not only my family but for those of my community. I believe in service to mankind. Service to mankind is service to God. It is my goal always to serve God.
