It is often said that you should never judge a book by its cover, because every once in a while, someone from the most unexpected place makes an impact in ways no one would ever expect. Well, that is exactly what Atlanta-based entrepreneur, government contractor, and beauty influencer Tere Tatiana is doing – making her mark in the male dominated industry with her highly successful companies.
Tere Tatiana, is an government contractor who was stationed in Afghanistan from 2009 until March 2020. She would still be overseas had it not been for the Coronavirus pandemic, which forced her to return to the states. Fortunately for her, the relocation turned out to be a true blessing in disguise, as she was able to pour all of her energy into her trucking business, as well as the other three companies she owns – Labeled Blu Collections, a clothing line; Labeled Blu Realty, Labeled Blu Transportation, and Southern Hospitality Adult Daycare Facility
To change that narrative, last November, Tere became the first black woman to launch virtual trucking classes specifically designed to teach black women the ins and outs of the lucrative trucking business. Also, recognizing how COVID-19 took a heavy toll on many black working professionals, Tere believes that now is the perfect time to explore entering into ownership. That is why she is hosting seminars, such as the one she has planned for her hometown of Statesboro on Saturday, February 27TH
Tere’s first in person class Let’s Talk Trucking Seminar, is an all-inclusive networking event, will teach motivated individuals how to launch six figure companies in the trucking industry. “As someone who grew up in Statesboro, I am very happy with the direction the city is going with our current mayor. Typically with events like these, people tend to overlook the smaller cities for the larger more popular ones, but I wanted to stop here first and contribute to the growth of the community here.”
Why trucking, you ask? Well, not only has it been very lucrative for Tere Tatiana herself, she indicates, that as the COVID-19 pandemic wages on, the industry is a hotbed of opportunity for men and women seeking ways to venture into entrepreneurship and to generate additional income in a shaky economic climate. Additionally, Statesboro and the surrounding areas are situated along common truck routes.
Labeled Blu Transportation has seen a lot of action. It houses a fleet of trucks that frequently run shipments across all 50 states. Take one glance at Tere’s social media and you might say she belongs in a fashion magazine, not posted alongside an 18-wheeler. However, shattering societal norms and defying the odds is something she has done all her life, and she wants to empower others to do the same. Needless to say, this high-powered, multi-faceted entrepreneur is well on her way to becoming one of the most recognizable female moguls in the near future. Her dedication and work ethic is otherworldly, and her efforts to inspire and motivate other women is sure to make an indelible impact for years to come.
The Let’s Talk Trucking Seminar will take place on Saturday, February 27th from 8:00am – 12:00pm at 455 Commerce Drive, Statesboro, GA 30461. For more information and to register, visit www.LabledBluTransportation.com
