Soaring through Adversity
“No matter the insurmountable hurdles you face, you too can overcome and achieve victory … in time.”
– Renee J. Breazeale –
Renee Breazeale often jokes she went from trailer park to country club, and it only took her 50 years to do it. If being a woman determined to build a multimillion-dollar business in a male-dominated industry wasn’t enough of a challenge, Renee found her faith being put to the ultimate test on many fronts. From living out of a suitcase, domestic violence, and chauvinism to a broken back and a brain tumor while being a single mom of two daughters, each adversity helped her realize lessons to soar in any given moment that life threw at her. In 2019, she sold her company for millions as one of the largest woman-owned industrial companies in the Southeast. Soaring through Adversity was written to be a source of empowerment, insights, and inspiration to women leading change, businesses, departments, or impassioned causes where the odds appear to be stacked against them, but only if they lose faith.
SEEKING WOMEN DETERMINED TO SOAR AGAINST ALL ODDS
Victory in Time benefits you and your team by mentoring you through the skills to obtain new opportunities, particularly through adversity, and establish valuable business goals for sustainable growth. Whether you own or manage a small to medium-sized company, successful or troubled, you will procure fierce courage and knowledge to soar. I will use the lessons learned from over thirty years as an entrepreneur in the industrial-based company that I founded at the age of twenty-four. I survived and thrived in a problematic male-dominated trade where I refused to give up or give in to the status quo. Our specialties are as follows:
- Sales strategies for sustainable growth and increased profit margins
- Discovering and focusing on your strengths
- Sales strategies specific to individual customers’ needs
- Consistent extraordinary customer service
- Finding the pain and selling the solution
- Seeing opportunity in adversity and pivoting quickly for a successful long-term outcome
- Leadership-minded team building
- Leading first, managing second
- Working “on” versus working “in” your business
- When to say NO
- Establishing and maximizing the benefits of women-owned certification
By engaging in my services, you will obtain the same successful strategies to advance your business and make yourself a force to be reckoned with. I look forward to the privilege of walking with you on your exciting journey to watch you and your company soar.
EMPOWERING WOMEN TO THRIVE IN THE FACE OF ADVERSITY
As owner and CEO of Victory Bolt & Specialty for over thirty years, I have experienced many adversities and obstacles every step of the way.
From a three-person start-up to forty-nine employees and back to eight, I have reinvented myself and the company many times. But through it all, the business was successful and positively impacted many lives along the way. Then when the opportunity came along for me to sell that business and retire, I did—but I’m not done yet.
As a woman that ran a business in a male-dominated industry, to a domestic violence survivor, to later face a massive brain tumor that left me unable to walk for months, I am blessed beyond measure.
Using my trials, mistakes, and successes, I want to demonstrate the true power you can have to succeed on every level no matter what you may be facing. Your hard work, building relationships, and most of all your faith—can lead to this success in time. This combination brought me through a lot of the things that we women endure on a daily basis. I work through seeing adversities and obstacles as opportunities, and I would love to share my story with you of my journey to Victory in Time.

Thirty-five years ago, Renee started her career to become one of the first female outside industrial salespeople. Five years later with only $3000 in her pocket and a high-interest credit card, she started her own company to have what other companies didn’t seem to focus on—heart and passion. In leading with her own heart and passion, she created a sustainable business model and developed long-term relationships around the world. In 2017, she sold her industrial fastener company. Today, she shares the knowledge obtained over the duration of her life as a successful entrepreneur, survivor of many things, proud wife, mother, and “NeNe.”

There are many things I would like to share with you. It has been quite the journey, and in many ways, I feel that it has only just begun. At times, there were good moments, sometimes bad, and other times downright ugly. Then there were those instances when it was all those things at the same time. It takes my breath away to think back on all the obstacles that turned into significant opportunities and the people that touched my life in so many ways. I hope that I can benefit others just as much as I continue this journey called life.
Allow me to use all the great opportunities I have experienced, as well as the many adversities, to help you steer your business down the curvy road ahead. Whether it is one-on-one sessions, reading my blog posts, or attending a speaking engagement, I am here to help. My goal is to demonstrate to you the true power you have on the inside to succeed no matter what you face.
I am a survivor, and one thing is for sure,
I believed I could, and I did.
You, too, can have Victory in Time!
