Joan Hudson is a legend in the repossession industry and has definitely made her mark as a role model for getting involved and making things happen. She was a pioneer in a male dominated industry and committed herself to educating others about the repossession industry. She is currently the owner of A.R.B. of Louisiana and the President and Owner of A.R.B. Investigation Agency. She has grown her company from one location to seven offices statewide so no agent has to drive more than 65 miles.
A favorite bible verse of mine is Ecclesiastes 4:9-10English Standard Version (ESV)
9 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10 For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!
This humble verse, composed when our ancestors were simply trying to survive the daily brutalities of biblical times, states the obvious in the stark terms of good vs. evil: solidarity = good / standing alone = bad. Terms such as networking and diversity didn’t exist when the writer set his words on parchment; nor did the statistics that could be scrutinized, analyzed, and subjected to blind trials for publication in some egghead textbook in order to prove his theory. Yet here we are today, still subject to the same bare bones truth of this ancient verse. We know that the best results are derived from the cohesive efforts of a group rich in diversity, yet working as one.
