Carla R. Cannon also known as “The Trailblazer” is indeed one of God’s Moguls in the making. With her eloquent yet transparent approach, bubbly personality and contagious spirit, she is committed to empowering global women from the pulpit to the marketplace on how to operate authentically and un-apologetically in their divine calling with a spirit of excellence.

Carla is a mother, 8x international best-selling author, Marketplace Ministry Strategist, Burn for Jesus Advocate and entrepreneur who currently resides in North Carolina with her teenage daughter, Patience. One of the key areas Carla specializes in is teaching others how to transform their pain into power by writing a book which in turn launches their business. Carla then proceeds by coaching clients on how to use their story to build a lucrative business/enterprise which in return enables them to fire their boss!

Carla currently runs and operates Carla R. Cannon Enterprises, LLC which houses Cannon Publishing where she has and continues to assist numerous men and women on how to Write the Book Already and produce multiple revenue rivers to provide a better life for their family.

Carla is also the leader of a global brand, Women of Standard, where her mission is to make Jesus famous while helping UNLOCK, UNLEASH & ACTIVATE women into their divine purpose authentically and un-authentically! The testimony of this young woman of faith and her ability to share her story of abandonment, rejection, insecurity, identity crisis, suicide attempt and more both unashamed and with such boldness and conviction is truly what causes her to connect with others on multiple levels. This year will celebrate 7 years since the birth of Women of Standard in 2011.

Whether she is speaking to an audience of 1 or 1,000 the energy Carla exudes is magnetic for she always leaves her audience not only feeling hopeful but with the tools to pursue their dreams and move further into their path of purpose despite their current process. She is truly a woman after God’s own heart and lives her life not trying to correct all of her wrongs but to learn and grow from them daily.

Carla has been privileged to be featured on multiple radio talk shows including The Jewel Tankard Show (featuring Jewel Tankard from the hit show, Thicker Than Water.) Carla has also shared the stage with many prominent leaders such as Dr. Yvonne Capehart, Real Talk Kim, Jekalyn Carr, Dr. Jamal Bryant and many more!

In 2014 Carla was invited to cover media for Bishop T. D. Jakes’ annual Woman Thou Art Loosed Conference where tens of thousands of women and men assembled together. Carla’s message is simple: No matter what you are in, you can come out and recover ALL!
