Who is La Shonda Tyree?
La Shonda is my friend, Indie Business Network member, and little sister. We met nearly two decades ago at a conference for soapmakers and discovered that we had so much in common — including that we were practically the only people of color int he room.
At the time, I had just stepped down from my position as an attorney in Washington, DC, and I was speaking at the event on the topic of intellectual property. My book, Making Aromatherapy Creams and Lotions, had just been published, and I was so excited to explore a new way of living as a Lifestyle CEO.
Over the years, La Shonda and I have laughed hysterically and cried uncontrollably together.
We have also dined, snorkeled, texted, cruised and chatted it up like two enthusiastic school girls, always energized and delighted to continue to pursue our passion for serving others through our businesses.
We have had scads of fun together for the past two decades, and we are both thrilled at the prospect of continuing the laughs for decades to come.
