Who is Jamarrion Tabor?
In this episode, Jamarrion goes into detail about her background in the childcare industry. Her background is the foundation and the reflection of where her business is today. What initially got Jamarrion into childcare was her entrepreneurial mindset. Prior to owning a childcare business, Jamarrion had experience in working a boutique. However, when she moved to Atlanta she felt the market was too saturated. Eventually, she went back to working a regular job that was taking too much time away from her family, so her husband suggested that she start an at-home childcare business. Once she did it for a year, she decided to acquire a brick and mortar location.
