153: From Selling Headbands Out Of Her Trunk To Growing A Six-Figure eCommerce Brand (w/Tomara Watkins of Loza Tam)

Share this:

Today we are back with another Side Hustle Spotlight, featuring a woman who is still very much in the side hustle grind or recently left their job to go full time. Today’s spotlight is Tomara Watkins, the Founder of Loza Tam, an eCommerce brand of satin-lined headwraps that are handcrafted in Ghana by women entrepreneurs. 

Tomara (AKA “Tam”) is an eCommerce entrepreneur who has over 10 years of digital marketing experience growth hacking CPG and beauty brands like Bevel, FORM, and Heat Free Hair. 

She’s traveled to 10 countries on the continent of Africa so far and as you’ll hear in this episode, it was when Tomara went to Howard University that she fell in love with all things Africa. After traveling to Ghana, the bold prints and colors spoke to her, and she came up with the idea of African print, satin-lined headbands, and head wrap turbans. 

Determined to build a business with women, like the women in her family, she ensures that all of Loza Tam’s products are crafted by women entrepreneurs, so they can support their families and continue to plant the same seeds that were planted in her as a young adult. 

Tomara has grown Loza Tam to be a six-figure eCommerce brand and she is passionate about supporting and teaching other women how to generate revenue online.

Hi! I’m Nicaila, the Creator and Host of the Side Hustle Pro Podcast. I started Side Hustle Pro when I was a side hustler myself. I was a digital marketer at NPR by day, side hustler by night. Through the powerful stories shared on this show and the courage to launch my own initiatives, I was able to quit my own job and go full time with Side Hustle Pro.
