We had the good fortune of connecting with Elizabeth Bryant and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Elizabeth, can you tell us more about your background and the role it’s played in shaping who you are today?
I’m from Dallas Tx Growing up I never thought of being an entrepreneur. I always wanted to be a Lawyer . After having my first son at 18, I kind of lost track of that dream . Growing up There were not many Business Owners around . Basically I was raised when you go to high school , Finish then off to college especially if you want a good paying job . Well at least that’s what I was told . I went to the University of Texas at Arlington. Graduated with a bachelors in Criminal Justices hoping to find a good paying career .,I’ve had many Jobs some good and some bad but I couldn’t seem to find my passion. The longest I’ve ever had one job is 2 years . In 2015 Transportation Crossed my mind but nothing serious . I took my first broker class in December 2019 . I Quickly realized It can be hard obtaining your first customer without your Nitch “which I didn’t have” . I turned to Dispatching. I needed a way to get into the industry. It was the best choice I’ve made so far. I’ve learned so much to actually help my business from all aspects of Brokering, Fleet Owner , and dispatching . I’m always learning while making a Living . I’m thankful for the vision God has given me and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
At E-Lane Freight Services , We take customer service very seriously . Our drivers always ask “what if I have a family” and would like to spend time with them. Family is something we care about. We don’t keep our drivers on the road for long periods of time unless they ask us to stay at . We are the voice for our carriers. We understand the industry and how important having a second chance at life can be a turning point if you have someone who actually believes and cares about not just the Money but the actual worker . Our saying is take care of the driver at all times , Think about it without a driver your truck can’t move . We Don’t have workers/employees, we have Family and business Partners .
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
