This Pregnant Mom Already Works 2 Jobs to Feed Her Kids, But When Her Boss Changes Her Paycheck…

Tami Forbes is mother to eight-year-old twins and pregnant with her third child. To feed, clothe, and house the most important people in her life – not to mention herself – she has spent the last several years working two jobs, one making amazing pies for the Key West Key Lime Pie Company, and the other bartending in the evening. That doesn’t give her much time to relax, to care for a newborn, let alone be at home for the kids she already has.

Enter Marcus Lemonis. A serial entrepreneur, self-made millionaire, and reality TV star, Lemonis came to help the bakery where Tami was an invaluable member. Seeing her amazing work ethic, skill, and ability to work with and lead others, he wondered how the existing owners could pay her so little (only $300 per week) and ask for so much. “You have to take care of your people,” Lemonis says.

And that’s exactly what he does in this amazing scene from the CNBC show The Profit. Recognizing all she does for the company, the businessman thinks it’s time to pay her back. But payback isn’t just monetary – though she is getting a generous raise! – it’s also personal. See just what investment Lemonis makes in Tami’s life to bring her to tears. All employers could learn a thing or two here…
