Tamika started in Construction at just 19 years of age and soon rose to the top of Australia’s largest residential builder before starting TSR.
In establishing TSR, within a 12 Month period the business had reached over $10,000,000 in sales without a website or any marketing. And yet already, TSR was managing Federal & State funded Affordable Housing projects.
As a result of TSR’s success, Tamika was awarded Young Business Woman of the year and soon, attention to her Entrepreneurial spirit grew.
“I set out to start a business that would alleviate the heartache I was seeing in the knowledge being held by few, whilst consumers were crippling. Therefore I developed a full-service solution to better facilitate an end to end process in residential development.”
From the obstacles incurred first hand in being a part of the minority within the sector, Tamika began an initiative in her spare time, the #Top100Women.
The intention was to recognise and highlight women within Construction and Development to establish the following:
- A demonstrated path that had been walked and was achievable
- Allow women within the sector a voice, a platform to be heard
- Empower Women not only inviting those outside the sector, but also acknowledging the many that intentionally fly under the radar within our workforces today
Within a matter of weeks, the initiative went Global and after a successful 12 Months, Tamika formed a board of directors to scale the initiative further.
Whilst some people follow a straight line, it is evident Tamika’s journey was anything but. However, her ideas, adaptability, and ability to connect with people created a following of over 3300 in her community, her blogs reaching up to 180,000.
A true Entrepreneur that was often underestimated, Tamika built solutions to well-known problems that those inside the box could never envision changing.
