(TriceEdneyWire.com) – Tina Howell is not one to allow divorce, single motherhood, or anything else stand in the way of feeding her three kids. For Howell, business ownership is not just a good thing. It’s a way of life and a means to a prosperous end. Like many people, she dealt with significant personal and financial catastrophes. She decided to transform them into cold, hard cash.
“I went through a divorce. So I was in a position where I had to financially provide for myself and my children,” Howell confesses. “It is my nature to not be dependent on anything or anyone.”
With that attitude, Howell launched her first business, Virtual Home Care Inc. It has grown into one of the largest minority-owned home health agencies in Dallas, Texas. In 2012, she expanded her empire to South Florida.
