A Life-Changing Experience:

Tamara never intended to become an author, educator, and speaker. At age 18, a near-fatal car accident changed everything.  On her way to gymnastics practice, she collided with an illegally parked semi-truck at nearly 50 miles per hour. During one year of recovery, it became clear how precious life is.  That awakening caused her to place her focus on learning and helping others achieve their goals. She considers the remaining facial scar to be a gift that reminds her daily to stay focused and forge on.

Founder of Mom Invented & the Mom Invented® Brand of products:

She may be best known for founding, Mom Invented, a dynamic company with a dual mission to “Inspire, Inform & Boldly Promote Courageous Women in Business” and “Celebrate the Creativity of Moms by Launching Innovative Mom Invented® Products Around the World.” Her internationally trademarked Mom Invented® products were distributed to over 10,000 stores nationwide. After going through the product development process herself when inventing the award-winning TP Saver®, while simultaneously juggling small children, Tamara found the support and guidance of other entrepreneurs to be invaluable. This inspired her to create a web-based community and the Mom Invented® brand. Mom Invented was recognized by Forbes.com as one of the “Top 100 Websites for Women.” After more than a decade of dedication, passion, and hard work, Tamara chose to license her brand to a multi-million dollar Housewares company — closing this chapter in her life in 2015.

Her passion now is focused on helping Authors, Experts and Entrepreneurs market and generate income with their books (and beyond) so that they can magnify their message, help others, and make an impact in ways they have not yet imagined. Learn more here.
