She built a $2 million company while raising 14 kids
With a thriving business and 14 children to tend to, Shea Terra Organics founder Tammie Umbel is constantly on the go.
Days begin on her farm in Leesburg, Virginia, where she spends mornings answering work emails and getting her eight younger children ready for the day. Later, she spends about four hours teaching them everything from language arts to math in their at-home classroom.
Once the lessons end, Umbel dashes off to work in her factory, a 30-minute drive away. She stays late into the night and then heads back home to catch five or six hours of sleep.
