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

Hi Tarea, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My thought process behind starting Bosses Kitchen was making it happen during a pandemic. While most businesses closed, and we were all locked down. I told myself this is the perfect time to start my second business. Something that I have always dreamed about, but never had the time.

What should our readers know about your business?
What sets me apart from others is that I live my dream every day, and I don’t stop. My dedication, positive attitude, consistency, determination, and staying focused on what’s important in every situation helped me overcome obstacles. But most of all, I am commitment and will never settle for anything less than the best. I am most proud of my strength and how far I have come. I’m so excited about what’s coming for Bosses Kitchen & Bosses Salon & Spa. I have been a business owner for seven years now. Consistency is what got me this far. There is a saying “Anything worth having is worth fighting for.” Some of the struggles I have faced was trying to balance everything, losing things. and starting over. I overcame these challenges by fighting, never allowing my bad days define who I am. Throughout my journey I have learned to have patience. Patience, persistence, and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success (Napoleon Hill).

I want the world to know you can do anything you put your mind to. My brand/slogan is Boss It Up. Meaning no matter what you go through keep going.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Ponce city market, Beltline, Atlanta Botanical Gardens, & Twisted soul are my favorite places I tell everyone about. when my friends and I just want to get out and have a chill day, we always visit the Beltline. We ride bikes or scooters then grab a quick lunch. Ponce city market is a place full of vendors selling different products which is amazing. I love nature and most of my friends do as well, so we are always visiting Botanical Gardens to see all the beautiful plants. Twisted soul is a restaurant you have to experience.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to my son, family and close friends. Operating two businesses can become challenging at times. But having a great support system, mentor, and someone you can trust always help. My parents have always made a way to make sure I was able to reach every goal. Gwen Bullard, Beverly Brown, Adriana Zamudio, Merecedes H, Margaret Green, Sonya, Rodney T, & Siblings has always supported and been there.
