Bullard's mother died on a Christmas morning when Bullard was a young girl.  Linda Bullard was pregnant at 13 and gave birth to her son when she was 14 years old.  In her book, The Well Ran Dry - Memoirs of A Motherless Child , she credits her father’s faith in her as part of changing her expectations that completely changed her life.  The first of her family to get a college degree, she raised her son to make the kind of choices that would open doors for him.  Bullard is an author, owns her own business consulting firm, and is a motivational speaker to help young people look at their own decisions in life.
