Tierra Destiny Reid
Starting on a Shoestring Budget
A military wife, mother and savvy businesswoman with a grind-until-you-get-it-right approach to life, Tierra Reid is quickly establishing herself as one of Atlanta’s most respected entrepreneurs. After being laid off while on maternity leave, Tierra decided to turn her passion for retail, results and years of assisting multimillion-dollar marketing and sales strategies for national brands to start her own business. With guts, faith, a shoestring budget and a determination to win, she launched Stylish Consignments. An overwhelming request from customers, aspiring entrepreneurs and small business owners who wanted her time one on one prompted the launch of Serious Startups, which allows her to service and collaborate with small business owners nationally.
