Tina Knowles Speaks On Building Her Self Esteem & Finding Love After Divorce

Posted by Admin on February 11, 2015 at 8:30 AM

One would never know it to look at her daughters Beyoncé or Solange, two incredibly confident women, but Tina wasn’t always as self-assured as she appears to be. During her speech at the Women & Money Leadership Luncheon in Houston last week, she shared that a big motivation for her to begin her own business came from the fact that she recognized very early on in her marriage that she needed to build something for herself.


Soon after she and now-ex-husband Mathew Knowles tied the knot, she stopped working to take care of her ailing parents. Her dad suffered a heart attack the day before her wedding, and days later her mother was also in intensive care. Mathew stepped up and let her know that he could financially hold things down while she took care of her folks. “I treasure [that] to this day because within six months my mom had passed away,” she admitted. “Then I was pregnant!”


Things didn’t stay good in her marriage for long after that. Understanding the gravity of her situation, Tina realized then that she would need something to fall back in case things fell apart. “For four years I didn’t work, I just kept my daughter,” she recalled. “Then things just got really rocky and my marriage got very tumultuous, and I was having all these problems. I was like, ‘What have I done?'”
