ASU graduate goes from homeless to business owner
ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - An Albany State University graduate is continuing her mobile business after overcoming a few hardships during the pandemic.
“Coming from being homeless to graduating at Albany State University. All 4 years on my own, that’s one of my biggest accomplishments that I do cherish to this day,” said Tiera Sneed.
Tiera Sneed is the owner of a mobile boutique and spa called TeeLashae Minks & Boutique in Albany. She started her business during the pandemic last December.
Sneed found ways to overcome the struggles as a retailer by ordering products that aren’t dependent on the global supply chain.
“You don’t have to be in the shopping mall if you don’t want to if you’re nervous. You know? Just anywhere if you don’t want to step out, I can pull up to your house and you can get the one-on-one experience,” said Sneed.
With Sneed starting this business during the pandemic, she went through some trial and error.
“COVID isn’t as serious as it was. It’s still serious but not as crazy as it was, as hectic as it was at the very beginning,” said Sneed.
With one year under her belt, Sneed is confident her degree and experience will benefit her future as a business owner.
