When It Comes To Business, Tabitha Brown Says Either Accept Her As Her True Self Or 'Don't Work With Me'

Ever been scrolling through social media and quite possibly had a blah day, then all of a sudden, you hear the soothing voice of Tabitha Brown?

Since her social media debut began, Tabitha Brown has been captivating audiences with her authentic approach to vegan food, family values, and motivational perspectives. This level of authenticity has been the bedrock of her success.

Brown has skyrocketed across platforms, having guest spots in television shows, dropping a signature line at Target, and having television shows on YouTube and the Food Network. However, everyone hasn’t been a fan of Brown’s authentic presentation, and she shared a very clear message with them, “There is not a company, there is not a network, there is not a person, place or thing that is going to change who I am.”

From The Mouth Of Babes

Tabitha Brown is a modern story of how hard work, dedication, and faith can pay dividends. Originally from the small town of Eden, NC, Brown has always dreamed of being where she is today. While raising a family, her vision to be on the small and big screens never wavered.

In a previously reported exclusive with AfroTech, Brown noted, “I wanted to be taken seriously as an actress. So, I listened to my agent when she said not to record things for YouTube, for Instagram, for any social media. I wanted to do stand-up — I wanted a TV show — and, honestly, I just felt stuck. So, I prayed about it, and I said to God, ‘I will do whatever you want me to do.’ Then, my daughter told me about this thing called TikTok. She said, ‘Mama, why don’t you start doing some videos?'”

The advice from her daughter would be the catalyst for her future, and she’s been doing things her way ever since.

A Resume Worth Boasting About

Brown is the author of two books, including an autobiography – “Feeding the Soul (Because It’s My Business): Finding Our Way to Joy, Love, and Freedom.” Her cookbook, “Cooking from the Spirit: Easy, Delicious, and Joyful Plant-Based Inspirations,” is scheduled to drop on Oct. 4.

However, books aren’t the only place you can find the mom of three. She has a children’s show on YouTube, Tab Time. If you are a Target shopper, Brown has a clothing and décor line with a little something for everyone. Staying true to her cooking roots, Tabitha Brown is the co-owner of a vegan restaurant (Kale My Name), curator of signature spice with McCormick, and host of a cooking competition show, “It’s CompliPlated.”

In a recent Instagram post, Brown announced that the show had been moved from Thursdays at 9:00 p.m. EST to Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. EST on the Food Network.

Doing It Her Way

The common denominator for all of Brown’s success is her inability to waiver from her roots. She is committed to remaining true to who she is.

“If you don’t like my personality, if you don’t like everything that makes Tab, don’t work with me,” she explained in the video. “Because I’m not going to change. I’m not going to shift a little bit for your audience. I’m not going to talk a little bit different for your comfort.”
