Women History Month: Tameeka W. and Kenisha W.C.

Being in business for yourself is really the way to go.  You can be your own boss, set your own goals, and manage your life better than having to work for someone else. One of the greatest things about being in business is that everyone always sees the finished products. They never pay attention to the time where you missed family time, you don’t get paperwork correct, the blood sweat and tears, etc. It takes dedication to accomplish goals. With that being said, let’s talk to Tameeka W.; CEO of Right Way Home Care Services  and  Kenisha W.C; COO as they are opening up their own home care business.  I know that for me one of the greatest challenges can be having to find someone to assist in the caring of your loved one when they aren’t able do to do so. When my mother in law couldn’t care for herself the biggest issue was in how to maintain working, and being there for her everyday needs. We had to make the unfortunate decision to move her out of her home because we weren’t familiar with home care services that could have been available to assist. Thanks to Right Way Home Care Services another family will have the peace of mind that we didn’t.

What was your reason with opening Home Care Business?

We wanted to start the Home Care Business because of our personal and employment experiences. We both have a passion for helping people.

I (Tameeka) was a care giver during college before obtaining my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work. My mother in law has Home Care that comes to her home and assist her with her needs. Watching the other companies and how they operated I decided to open my own business. My goal is to operate differently from the other companies that have been working with my family. This is when I introduced the Home Care business to my sister Keneisha who is a CNA to be and my business partner.

Keneisha has been a caregiver since she was 17 years old. When I introduced the idea of opening up a Home Care Agency she was excited and on board. With her experience as a CNA and my Social Work background I knew this would be a successful venture.

Have there been any failures with opening up a business or any failures that opened the door to success that you want to highlight?

One difficult time that we had with starting our business is obtaining our license. The first time we sent it out it was returned with more items needed. We had to do more research and get assistance from our consultant to send out the correction information. After further assistance, research, and hard work we were able to obtain our license.

Anyone who has ever had to be licensed or is thinking about being licensed should know there are strict guidelines in what is and what’s not accepted. So if you can get someone in the business that can assist you into making thing run smoothly for yourself.

What is the one thing you want to tell your younger self?

One thing that we would tell our younger self is to stay true to yourself. A woman should never let anyone distract them from achieving their goals. Everyone is not going to have your best interest at heart, but you have to persevere through the adversity to be successful.

Knowing who is in your corner and who isn’t important.  It’s one of the hardest lessons because everyone who has had longevity with you doesn’t mean they always make the final cut in your life. Be careful in making sure you can clearly see someone and listen to those around you.

How can women be champions through mistakes?

Women can be champions through their mistakes by learning from them. Women should understand that one mistake does not define them. They can either let that mistake break them or make them. It is important to sit back and evaluate the mistake and set goals to grow from the mistake. There is always room to be successful we just have to be motivated and work hard for the success.
