Overview

It is a rare person who can communicate and inspire people up and down the corporate ladder. This is the gift Kelia Bazile shares in My Secrets to Success, a new autobiographical book chronicling her career path becoming the first African-American to lead a region in (Yum! Brands) Taco Bell’s 45-year history.

What began as a high school summer job at a fast food restaurant in a Dallas, Texas, turned out to be much more than this girl from rural Louisiana ever expected. My Secrets to Success tells an inspiring bottom up story of a young black woman who, against all odds, made it to the top tier of restaurant corporate management. With a compelling personal storyline, Bazile relates how she turned many of the adversities, obstacles and stereotypes that stop most young people into self-motivated opportunities, while all the time encouraging her peers not to give up on their dreams—no matter what.

More than a how-to book, My Secrets to Success shines a spotlight on many of the people who inspired Bazile and provided leadership and lessons that moved her up the corporate ladder. Her ideals, strategies and techniques are expressed in a simple, understandable and useful story that can help anyone achieve success in whatever career they choose.

Tim Morrison, president of Tacala LLC, manages the largest Taco Bell franchise in the nation with over 220 restaurants in the Southeastern and Midwestern United States. He said, “It’s a rare leader who can engage a team, help them rise to new levels and realize their full potential. Kelia has the unique quality of that rare leader who inspires confidence. I am blessed to have worked beside such a gifted leader.”

Kelia Bazile earned her MBA at Dallas Baptist University in 2004 and today is a Joint Venture Partner (JVP) at Carrabba’s Italian Grill based in Tampa, Florida, under the umbrella of Bloomin’ Brands, Inc.
