Press Releases and Appearances
Today we’d like to introduce you to Tameka McKneely.
Hi Tameka, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I am a multi-passionate entrepreneur who grew up in a household where there was always a family side business, whether it was a security company, a lawn service, commercial cleaning service, etc. and by family, I mean my father had businesses and my brothers and I were the employees. We grew up cleaning commercial buildings in the evening, doing commercial lawn care on the weekend and security for special events around the city, amongst other side jobs. Where there was a need, my dad came up with a way to make it a business. So entrepreneurship was ingrained in my brothers and I at an early age. And through it all, my dad always kept a full-time job. Read More
We had the good fortune of connecting with Tameka McKneely and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tameka, is there something you believe many others might not?
This is a great question. One piece of conventional advice that I disagree with, is that you have to go to school (post-secondary), get an education to get a good job and be successful. When I hear people say this, I often interject and offer another point of view. I think we definitely need to be educated, however I do not feel traditional school is the only way to obtain education. I love to read, I love to try new things, I love to learn, however I personally am not interested in going back to school. Read more
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
I enjoy being analytical just as much as I enjoy being creative. I like to say if my right and left brain were hands, I would be ambidextrous. I do not lean more to either side as most do. I am most known for my personable persona.
I think that one thing that sets me apart is my willingness to be vulnerable, which has not always been the case. The persona I exuded in my professional life before becoming a full-time entrepreneur was very confident but few know that being an entrepreneur presents soo many different emotions. There has been several new things I have learned about myself along this journey and anytime I
speak about it, I find that so many others experience the same feelings and emotions but are either suffering or dealing in silence. Once I open the door and begin speaking about it creates a safe space for others to relate and release. I am very proud to be used in this way.
My brand is about helping others reclaim their time and freedom through entrepreneurship whether part-time or full-time. Read entire article
