This week’s Badass Chick is Tameka Moss, creator of TBM Consulting.
For 15 years, Tameka had worked as a business consultant, helping companies large and small to become better and stronger. She hustled and hustled day after day until finally, in 2015, Tameka realized that she had been on 70 flights in one year, her health was deteriorating and she never saw her family. So she took a good look at what she had been able to accomplish in 15 years, and realized that instead of putting all of her efforts into consulting for another company, she could put all of her efforts into her own consulting company and be her own boss. She gave her company three weeks’ notice, packed up her stuff, and never returned. Tameka then took 7 months off to find her mental and physical health again… and six months later, she opened up her very own consulting firm.
Tameka’s big leap paid off: she is successfully handling her own company and is focused on helping women-owned and minority-led small businesses and nonprofits. Through her consulting work, she’s able to create an ecosystem which allows for these businesses to thrive and give back to their own communities. I absolutely love the fact that Tameka is living proof that you can put yourself first… and that finding that optimal mental/physical health balance can allow you to do some of the most rewarding work no matter what industry you’re in.
