This Black Woman Turned A Delivery Business Into A Million Dollar Brand By Partnering With Amazon

Learning 2 Exhale Industries (L2E) founder Sophia Strother turned her delivery business into a multimillion-dollar brand in just 18 months after partnering with Amazon.

But it almost didn’t happen, Business Insider reports.

Amazon came knocking again a day after Christmas.

Despite having operated her own consulting business for over 15 years, Strother had no transportation experience. Instead, in her application she “talked about initiatives I’ve led and how passionate I was for serving people and families in my community,” she said.

“We’re given 25 to 35 daily routes, and I have to make sure the vans are in place and my staff is dressed and ready to go,” Strother said. “On the backend, I lead the operational duties for my company and plan ahead for the various routes my associates need to take—whether the route is rural, urban, or underdeveloped.”

Though she enjoyed relatively quick success in her partnership with Amazon, the founder has also experienced the pains that come with a growing business.

“Since then, I haven’t missed a payroll check, and I’ve been able to start paying myself again,” she said.
