Tamara Starks is an up and coming business professional and serial entrepreneur. Known as the 'go-to' person for small business owners and other entrepreneurs, Tamara is poised to become a leading expert in consulting and business development. Tamara started her first entrepreneurial endeavor, Treasure Chest by Tamara in 2005, while attending the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) and working for the Fort Worth Independent School District as a lead AVID tutor and trainer.

Soon after graduating from UTA in 2006 with a BA in Communication Technology, Tamara served in several entry-level positions at various technology companies including Verizon and Compuware. In 2008, she left corporate America to focus on PTizics Fashion (PF), a fashion clothing line which complemented Treasure Chest by Tamara that she started in 2007.

Tamara's flare for developing businesses led her to buy into the Instant Tax Service franchise, a tax services firm for individuals and businesses in 2008. Tamara dissolved Instant Tax Services in 2010 after yielding more than $900,000 in revenue and started 1st Choice Tax Service which has successfully earned $600,000 in revenue in just one tax season. She dissolved PF in 2009, after earning $40,000 in yearly sales, to focus on Treasure Chest by Tamara, a boutique style women fashion accessories company.  

By 2010 Tamara entered into a partnership with 2nd Choice Discount Market, a resale and indoor flea market. In its first year of operations the company earned more than $300,000 in revenues. Today, Tamara continues to hone her skills as an entrepreneur and works with other business owners and entrepreneurs to assist them with developing quality business relationships and opportunities for growth. http://www.treasurechestvirginhair.com
