Meet Tawanya Peeples the newest member of the Newark Foundry Workspaces, Tawanya is a US Army Veteran who served three years before becoming disabled and leaving the ranks. She returned to New Jersey and built her life, going to Rising Tide Capital to discover what she was missing in her business - Project 850 Notary LLC. Peeples admitted even as she attended the Rising Tide Capital course, she wasn’t sure what she wanted to do.
Becoming a notary seemed like a good start. When the idea was introduced to expand into fingerprinting, Peeples wholeheartedly agreed.
During the pandemic, Peeples flourished in the solitude of quarantine. She got to know herself, thanks to Rising Tide Capital’s Community Business Academy. “I made copies of my handouts and I wrote on them, revising them. I did this for my budget, too. I made everything make sense before I did it.”
Tawayna attributes her skills of being a good businesswoman to the fact that she listens to her employees, and she has a separate co-worker space from her home. While disciplined, Peeples admits to liking the routine of going to work every day. “I operate in an incubator space in Newark. “I love working in Venture link. I knew in my heart notarizing documents and doing fingerprints is the field for me.” She admits that she has a great partnership with a company that offers coaching, assists with ads, and offers helpful feedback. “Rising Tide Capital gave me the confidence to move forward with my dreams and I’ll be forever grateful.”
Peeples looks forward to becoming an advocate for female veterans. They are woefully underrepresented in the VA system when it comes to getting the benefits they need, and she insists that more can be done to help these deserving veterans who served their country with honor and dignity.
