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

Hi Tiffany, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
There is not doubt that the biggest factor behind the success of our rapidly growing brand is passion, purpose, professionalism, and of course our results.

For many years I imagined living and not just existing. Now, i’ve built a brand doing what God has called me to do and walking in my purpose makes life worth living. When you love what you do it doesn’t feel like work.

Our purpose is selfless and comes from a genuine place. We strive to create an early love for learning in a safe environment. We also act as a village, here to support mothers and their families. As a mother of a young boy I understand the importance of having allies and multiple resources on this motherhood journey, especially in the 1st 5 years.

Allowing us to be a part of your village allows us to have unique families ties however we never fall short on professionalism. Our tutors and toddler guides are seasoned, stern but gentle, friendly and fun fun fun.

All these attributes combined with the actual results parents see are unmatched. Our clients are 96% referral. Our success depends on our mini’s success. We love to see their growth and gains. Staying above average is always the goal.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I truly love what i’m doing. I adore the babies that I work with and I look forward to seeing them transform and hit milestones. I’m loyal and committed to their individual goals and our business model. I have 9 years in the classroom with early childhood education.

Im proud to be a mother, becoming a mother is ultimately is the 1 single thing that got me where I am today, professionally. My love for teaching, my desire to provide more stability for him and the need for taking advantage for brain development rate of children under 5 all help me as well.

Getting here was not easy, taking an idea from paper to working project requires, time, financing and commitment. I made a promise to my son and myself that Id build a business we could be proud of.

To overcome these challenges I took several steps.

1st I continued to work as a revenue analyst (2yrs) at an Atlanta hotel to fund my start up, I saved and eliminated all frivolous and non essential spending (pedicures included).

2nd I had to manage my time. This was most difficult during year 3. My business begin to gain momentum and the client demand required more time. I had to become the “weekend parent”. I was no long able to assist with virtual home school. I restructured our hours to be closed on weekends so that i may have family time.

At the start of Mini Minds I knew time and financing was a required sacrifice I just didn’t know what the sacrifice would look like. My commitment and passion helped me cope.

I learned that sacrifices are tough but rewarding. I learning that thing do always go as planned but God plan is bigger and better. Iv also learned that everything that can go wrong may go wrong, but you must go on, because everything will work out.

The world should know, Mini Minds is the future and I plan reach as many mini as my schedule will allow and learning will always be fun with Ms. Tiffany.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Yikes, this one is hard! The last 3 years has been all business for me. And before that it was #MommyLife. A lot has change since the pandemic so hopefully we could visit our favorite spots.

If my best friend came in town and I wanted to show her and her mini a good time we would start at the Children’s museum! My son loves that place and its full of ways to explore.

In the morning we would start at Ihop for breakfast, kids eat free.
Next up the children’s museum. Afterwards our mini’s would catch a nap on the back while we head to grab food at Slutty Vegan because ever wants to try that! To end the night we would take a break from the babies and head over to Painted Duck for some adult fun and games.

I do not get out much unaccompanied by my son however I enjoy Spice House, Painted duck, Dave and Busters, Ponce city roof top, or any karaoke bar.

My son and I enjoy the High museum of art, our local parks, the library, Childrens museum and All of the trampoline parks Atlanta has to offer.

Next year we plan to go on a hunt for Atlanta’s Tiny Doors.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would have made it to this stage of success with out my personal Village.
