Sitting in a hospital room after her father suffered a major heart attack, Paula Marshall watched her dad desperately try to decide who would run the family business. Even though Paula had worked for the company for a decade, she expected her brothers to take over for her father.  Then something unexpected happened. Faced with the impossible choice of selling his business or passing it down to his only daughter, who had become pregnant at 17, her father took the bigger gamble. Since that day, Marshall has taken The Bama Companies to new heights. Now a major global corporation with plants all over the world, Bama has set benchmarks in producing quality products for the nation's largest restaurant chains. Now, Marshall tells her story of going from teen mom to successful CEO, and the challenges she's faced along the way.
