The Story Behind Tangie's Corp
La’Tacha and Angela met in the summer of 2014 on the office floor of an insurance company. After bumping into each other in meetings and becoming friendly, the two hit if off, bonding over shared interests and values. After growing tired of their insurance jobs, they began to talk about ambition and the future. They dreamed of having their own business someday and completely leaving the corporate world behind. They just weren’t sure how to do it. Then the unexpected happened.
In October of 2016, Angela was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer. She immediately began chemotherapy treatment. Feeling helpless, La’Tacha remembered watching her grandmother endure the pain of stage four lung cancer. She remembered losing a dear friend, her cousin’s grandmother, and her mother-in-law.
La’Tacha grew tired of sitting on the sidelines, watching people suffer. She wanted to help. She’d heard about something that was helping people deal with the pain and discomfort that comes along with chemotherapy.
After doing her research, she knew what to do.
Her journey took her to Washington where La’Tacha had family and friends. She spent every waking moment learning everything she could about Cannabidiol, CBD for short. A medical powerhouse that was growing in popularity. After reading more about the massive list of medical benefits and the relief that it gives to people suffering from a large range of ailments, an idea popped into La’Tacha’s head on what they could do as a business.
“We wanted to not only build a business but a family legacy that we could pass to our children” La’Tacha added.
La’Tacha rushed to tell her sister about the business idea. Not even a week later, La’Tacha’s sister sent her a website link of influential people in the industry focused on minorities. Khadijah Adams was one of the people on that list, so La’Tacha called her to star a dialogue. She explained to Khadijah exactly what she wanted to build: a family legacy. Khadijah was drawn to La’Tacha’s story and immediately jumped on board.
The only thing that was missing from their business and family legacy was a name. After much thought, La’Tacha combined name with her best friend’s name and Tangie’s was born. Things were looking up for Tangie’s; the business model was in motion, the right resources were expedited until things took a slight turn for the worst as Angela’s condition worsened.
On January 3rd, 2008 LaTacha’s grandmother Louise O’Neal passed away, from stage four Lung Cancer, on Feburary 29th, 2012, Barbara Deal lost her battle, with Breast Cancer, and on May, 2017, Angela passed away after only being diagnosed with cancer for six months at the age of 38.
La’Tacha was devastated. Losing her dear friend so suddenly. She honestly believed that if the state of Florida had a more effective way of treating patients and handling pain, it would have helped Angela, her grandmother, and close family friend. La’Tacha believed that if medical marijuana was used in their treatment, they would have been less uncomfortable during their treatment. Unfortunately, Florida didn’t give them that opportunity, before they passed.
Taking some time off, La’Tacha decided to put things on hold and get her life back together. She needed some time to think and analyze her next steps. “I saw my friends, and grandmother from being such a lively people, with so much energy, so much love, to nothing, which was devastating, for me,” La’Tacha states.
“I don’t know when it will be my time, so let me make the best out of the time I have here left on this earth to ensure that my children will be okay when the time comes” La'Tacha added.
“I want to be there for my family and the best way to do that is to build my team, and the best team you can have is your family because I can’t do it alone. I want to bring the vision to reality just for my family."
La’Tacha contacted Ms. Khadijah Adams and quickly told her about the series of unfortunate events that unfolded since they last spoke. That didn’t stop Khadijah from pulling out of the plan. If anything, it only cemented the business plan to come into motion and kick-start the business into year one.
That call to Khadijah was made in January 2018, and it is already almost a year since Angela passed. Tangie’s is still in production and will be better than ever, now that La’Tacha has something to stand for. Tangie's is not only for the creators, but the family members who were left behind.
