Carla R. Cannon also known as The Trailblazer or Coach C (to her students) 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, 9x times best-selling author, Activation Coach and Entrepreneur who currently resides in North Carolina with her sixteen daughter, Patience. One of the key areas Carla specializes in is teaching others how to package their brilliance to bankroll their business! Through her signature coaching programs Carla also teaches how to write a book to launch your business. She leads her students and clients through a step by step process on how to fire their boss and equip them on how to live their dream life!
“I feel that I am called to bridge the gap between ministry and the marketplace,” says Carla in a recent interview. “For so long I felt as if I had to choose whether I’d serve God in a pulpit or pursue business opportunities. I later understood that my business is my ministry and the pulpit is wherever I am in that moment. I now know that I don’t have to choose and I want others to know that too!”- Carla continues.
The testimony of this 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. 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 and 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!
