We had the good fortune of connecting with Tamera Singleton and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tamera, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I was never really one to fit in, I always knew that I was meant to do more. 8 years ago I had just had my second child and I was working as an executive assistant to a COO. One day I was in his office and he said to me, “remember this, in any company everyone is replaceable, even the COO.” That stuck with me, the thought that I was just another number. No matter how hard I will work or sacrifice I would do, it will only be for the better of someone else and their family, their legacy and I can be replacedat anytime. I wanted to do something of my own, to change the trajectory of my family for generations to come after me. I want to show youth in my family and other young people around me that the sky is NOT really the limit, there’s space to do more.
