Hi, I'm Tammy, host of the Badass Business Owner Podcast & the Badass Small Business Owner YouTube Channel. .

I'm many things to many people: Business Coach, Entrepreneur, Youtuber, Podcaster, Realtor, Mentor, Author, Daughter, Aunt, Sister, Partner. I believe in being positive and laughing each day!

Like many of you, I am an entrepreneur. I too love to be my own boss and love running my own businesses. Most importantly, I love helping others achieve their goals and dreams!

For 25 years, I was part of Corporate America with Big Box Retail and then in 2008, I left to become a full-time small business owner and entrepreneur. I love running my own businesses. There have been ups, downs and lots of lessons along the way. These experiences have given me a wealth of knowledge I hope to continue to share with others.

One of the greatest experiences of my life was being part of a major fortune 500 company, Home Depot. I came aboard during the early start-up years and for the next 22 years, I was part of the wild ride into becoming one of the largest retailers. Working side by side with those that built the company, moving up the ranks from store, district, regional and Division positions has given me experiences and amazing opportunities I would never trade.

Massive experiences in operations, merchandising, profit/loss, sales, service, human resources, training and development, marketing, you name it, were more powerful than any college class could ever teach me. Nothing beats hands-on, belly to belly learning in the trenches...As long as you learn and grow from it!

My favorite role? It always has been a Coach / Mentor. Period. Nothing gave me more joy than helping others. I always said that the memory I left someone with would never be one of “boss” but one of a leader who helped them grow and achieve.

Even as I went on to running my own businesses, I just couldn’t help myself, I remained a coach. Not only a coach to my own crew but to other small business owners. Now I want to be one of YOUR Coaches!

My Mission: Motivate, inspire, and coach folks just like you towards your goals and dreams!
