Michelle Cully thought she’d never amount to anything without her boyfriend. After their abusive relationship ended, she was distraught, sleeping on her sister’s couch and refusing to eat . . . until a crazy idea popped into her head.

Today, Michelle is a successful entrepreneur and powerful female CEO in a male-dominated industry. The small company she built is now Xpressman Trucking & Courier, a multi-million-dollar venture with operations from coast to coast.
