Marjorie Perry is not your typical entrepreneur. The president and CEO of MZM Construction and Management Co., Inc. transitioned from being a Newark, N.J., educator to working in corporate sales for companies including United Airlines. She found the prime opportunity to combine her love of education and her desire for life wealth while working as an independent consultant, ultimately becoming  partner at one of her client's companies, MZM. She then became sole principal of the multimillion-dollar company that now boasts a client list including Marriott Hotels and New Jersey Transit.

BlackEnterprise.com caught up with Perry on how women can position themselves in their own entrepreneurial and career advancement pursuits. --- Janell Hazelwood
