In this episode of ABL DUOs husband and wife, Dave and Karla Moody talk about topics you don't normally hear on a program about African American business ownership.
Dave owns a construction company, based in Atlanta, GA, that has generated $3 billion in projects. He bluntly explains the obstacles he and his wife faced when they started his firm out of necessity. But he also has talks about the 30 years he spent fighting debilitating anxiety attacks triggered by one single incident. He discusses how he first ignored, then hid and finally acknowledged the impact his personal struggles had on his business.
Karla, a retired hospice nurse, has been married to Dave for more than 40 years. She tells the story of her husband's success from the perspective of a family member who understands how hard it is to run a business and fight mental illness. She shares an amazing story about how contributions of healing and support made a big difference in the bottom line and growth of the family business.
This couple is dynamic, informative, surprising and very frank.
This is the first of twelve stories from Black business duos and is exclusively part of the Atlanta Business League's 90th Anniversary celebration.
