In less than 10 years, Della Kirkman went from a single mom waiting tables at Cracker Barrel, to buying her first business, growing it, and later selling it to achieve a level of wealth and independence she had only dreamed about.
On top of that, Della did this as a single mom of two daughters, both of whom are already saving for retirement.
