Tisha Hammond is not only affectionately known as The Small Business Cheerleader, she is a compassionate leader who is a wife and mother. Last year, we met as a part of a speaking tour. Since that time, she has supported me in a number of ways. Tisha’s company sponsored my children’s book launch last November (2021). Additionally, I have consulted with her regarding the growth of my business. Her guidance has led to an increase in my business’s capacity. Recently, I earned business certification through the National Entrepreneurs Association and Comerica Bank. Additionally, I have taken on a business partner. Now, we are positioned to sign our first school contract with a local school district for the Fall. Additionally, I am preparing to take on my first part-time employee as a result of the partnership that we have with a local organization that serves as a fiduciary. Still, what I appreciate about Tisha the most is her humility and kindness. Recently, I lost my aunt and she attended my aunt’s funeral to show support. For this reason and many others, I have come to regard Tisha as a friend. Her sincerity is priceless.
