Milspouse Matters Episode 111
Talking to Charlynda Scales, founder of Mutt’s Sauce, LLC
I’m so excited to bring you my talk with Charlynda Scales, author of the brand new book, Rock Bottom Has a Trampoline, which has already ranked as a best new release in its category!
Charlynda is not only impressive, but she’s a kind-hearted person who is wise beyond her years. But that wisdom has been hard-won. We discuss the stories behind the book, her journey to becoming an entrepreneur, aligning yourself with others who are like-hearted vs. like-minded, advice for entrepreneurs or anyone starting over, and how to come back when life has brought you to rock bottom. As Charlynda says about the idea of “rock bottom has a trampoline,”
She’s a veteran, now a reservist, a former military spouse, and an entrepreneur. Here’s more about Charlynda:
Charlynda Scales is a serial entrepreneur: She serves as founder and CEO of Mutt’s Sauce LLC and OH Taste LLC; Director of the OH Taste Foundation (501c3), and creator of The Empower Collection. She is the author of the business empowerment book, Rock Bottom Has a Trampoline.
Charlynda is a sought-after speaker and mentor for women’s empowerment and small businesses. She is a TEDx speaker. Her talent is cultivating influential people by meeting them where they are in life and business.
