Have you ever thought about starting a business but you weren’t sure if your passion project was just a hobby or could become a full fledged business? Well our guest today is Phyllis Williams-Strawder or Mrs. Big Mista as she is known in the BBQ community. Phyllis is the Queen of late bloomers. She received her first college degree when she was 38 years old. She birthed her one and only child at 42 after two miscarriages and six months later purchased her first home. Next in her series of first was starting a legit business at 43 and quitting her good government job at 45. She opened her first restaurant at 50 and her second at 51. At 52 she took her first international trip (London & France) and published her first book at 53. As if that wasn’t enough, she chucked the restaurants (with the support of her husband) to follow her passion of helping entrepreneurs young and old start businesses. As a certified business coach and brand strategist she is on a mission to help small businesses build big brands and conquer more first. She is the author of 7 books and a proud homeschooling mom.
