Tina Lee Jones's story
Born & raised in Houston, TX as a 'southern belle', in a middle class home I was a sad child growing up. Although I endured so much abuse as a child, all from the hands of family members, and was even hospitalized at 17 for depression, deep down I always knew I was great! I always knew I wanted be, become & create something great! In December of 2001 I moved to NYC right after 911! After my entertainment dreams didn't go as planned I decided to tap into my entrepreneurial spirit buried within. I started my GOAL DIGGER journey April of 2011 and what an amazing story of success & failure it has been. From my car being repossessed, to several stages of unemployment and even an eviction notice, I refuse to give up on the vision that GOD put inside me. This vision won't let me sleep, so I just keep going! Seven years later I've grown into the vision that GOD gave me, but one thing about vision and goals, they require funding. After reading several marketing, business and mindset books such as Think And Grow Rich, Dotcom Secrets, Building A Storybrand, Integration Marketing, etc, etc, etc, I now have the education and strategy to take GOAL DIGGER to the next level. Today I'm a HBCU college graduate from Prairie View A&M University, I overcame depression & type 2 diabetes and with this Kiva loan I will overcome this marketing issue in my business! My dreams for the future are to inspire others through public speaking with my story of overcoming any obstacle while selling the GOAL DIGGER brand! Thank You, Tina Lee Jones
