“You don’t tell someone like me that thing.”
Sonja Williams, a 19-year-old forklift operator for a multi-billion dollar corporation, told her boss she could improve production by 30 percent.
He took her up on her offer, asking if she’d bet her job on it. She did. When she improved operations by 40%, she asked if she could do more, including being considered for an executive job.
Her boss said the only way someone with her education level could be an executive would be to start her own company, which she did. Today, her Alpharetta ShockTheory digital firm has offices in three states, providing top corporations with digital presentations.
