Tamara Longworth Partners with Sisters in Business
Laurel Lee Jewelry Business
Sisters In Business is pleased to announce its newest "sister in

experiences and motivations for starting her new business endeavor are
very similar to that of Sisters In Business owner Tekelia Kelly's.
Owner of Sisters In Business Tekelia C. Kelly said, "As Sisters In
Business celebrates its 6 month anniversary on August 14, 2006, it's great

fruition. It's also good to see other women who value sisterhood;
and know that 'it's not just about making money, but about also making a
positive difference in someone's life. These are women who have a
'heart and soul for taking care of business' like the
