Tia joins Not A Great Whisperer podcast to tell us her story as a 44 year old “happily divorced” entrepreneur living in Tampa Bay. Originally from NW Pennsylvania she grew up with entrepreneurs on both sides of her family. She was surrounded by very successful business owners and was taught everything they knew. Forever Rooted was born out of grief. After losing her dad and her job in 2020 during the height of the pandemic, I needed to reevaluate, to figure out what my purpose in life was and what was going to make me happy. After a lot of soul searching, it became very clear she wanted to honor her dad’s entrepreneurial wisdom, to spread his legacy, and to inspire new entrepreneurs that no matter how humble your beginnings may be, the American dream is still very much alive. I combined my love for tee shirts, and his wisdom to tell you his story through the art and quotes on our apparel, every design has a story. I’m ecstatic to share our designs with the next generation of business owners!
