Pregnant Mom, Who Works Two Jobs, Receives Unexpected News From Her Boss

Self-made millionaire Marcus Lemonis is all about helping people help themselves. That’s why he puts up his own money in an effort to turn around small businesses.

By the same token, Lemonis believes in treating your employees with fairness and generosity because this makes them put more effort and caring into their jobs. His experience is that caring more about your job leads to greater productivity and improved results for the business.

Back on a 2015 episode of The Profit, Lemonis hatched a plan to give some help to a female employee getting ready for maternity leave, as the hard-working employee was having difficulties supporting her growing family.
The woman was Tami Forbes, and she was employed as a manager at the Key West Key Lime Pie Company in Florida. Tami has been on the payroll at the company for four years and handles all the management, but she just gets a salary of $300 a week.

Of note, Tami is a mom with 8-year-old twins and was pregnant with a third child. And besides her work as a manager, Tami also bartended several nights a week to bring in extra money.

“I’m gonna need your help before you leave. I gotta get some stuff done and you’re gonna be our leader here,” Lemonis explains in the meeting he set up with Tami.

Next the multi-millionaire surprises Tami with a check for six months’ of pay. After that, he tells the already sobbing with happiness woman she is getting a raise to $1000 a week when she returns to work after three months of maternity leave.

“It means everything, knowing that I have a salary when I come back — a salary that I can live on, and still save money… I’ve never had that,” Forbes said, in expressing her gratitude to Lemonis.
