Tanea Smith on Women Entrepreneurs Radio™
Ever the expressive and dramatic child, Tanea Smith dreamed of a career as an actress until an unplanned pregnancy at the age of 19 would change the course of her life. An avid journalist since the age of 11, Tanea has always been a lover of words and had a passion for paper. After 13 years as an Executive Assistant, it was while on maternity leave after the birth of her daughter in 2007 that she began thinking about designing a stationery collection of her own. With the name of a popular song from the 1980’s as her foundation and lots of support from her family, She’s Got Papers was borne. Launched in July 2008 and designed specifically for little girls, young ladies and women are note cards with illustrations and original quotes that promote positive body image, self love and education in a way that is fresh, whimsical, witty and thought provoking. While her intention is to carry on the tradition of proper etiquette through letter writing, Tanea is also hoping to encourage, inspire and uplift others with her bold designs and clever language. The process of putting pen to paper is, in a word she says, “Magical”.
Tanea lives in Brooklyn, New York with her fiance and 2 children. Visit Tanea's website at http://www.shesgotpapers.com/
