"I am not a young pretty girl who needs advice on what to do after college. I am a Clemson grad and have a masters degree. I am a military veteran with over 12 years of service. I own two companies. I am an only child and caretaker of my parents. I have been through a lot. Not 23 years or 25 years....but 37. I am constantly humbled that I don't look like all the things I have been through." These words were written by Charlynda Scales, a dynamic motivational speaker, brand ambassador, Air Force Veteran, social media influencer, and the founder and CEO of Mutt’s Sauce, LLC, a company that makes “the sauce for every meal.” Mutt's Sauce was the Grand Prize Winner of Bob Evan's Farms' 2017 Heroes to CEOs Contest.
