So who is this chic that calls herself "The Curvy Boss"?
"Women are like roads. The more curves they have, the more dangerous they are! - Mae West
The Mae West quote above, celebrating CURVES, has always served as a personal inspiration for me and appeals to me as the perfect adjective to describe the beauty, movement(s) and force to be reckoned with, known to the world as Therease Thompson. I am absolutely a self-made woman and an undeniable Boss (B0$$), full of those curves that Mrs. West warns you about!
I owe absolutely no one for my status as an established, and unprecedented IT Executive, Debt-Free Diva, Leader in my African American, Milwaukee and LGBTQ Communities, Mother of 3-grown successful children; Including two African American, 30 and 27-yr old sons who've never seen the inside of a jail nor police car in one of the most crime and violence prone cities in the U.S., and a college-junior daughter headed to Medical school on her journey towards becoming a Pediatrician.
Over the past 3 years I've also tackled my last significant hurdle, and last remnant of my abusive childhood by loosing over 100 lbs through the hard work of physical exercise and the adoption of healthy food choices. My testimony is that if I can accomplish millionaire status and fulfill every aspiration of my lifetime vision board, considering my humble economic beginnings and struggles as a teen-mom, then anyone can if they whole-heartedly commit to it!
I grew up in the rural South of Mississippi and Louisiana, USA. My paternal, Creole family are descendants of African slaves, owned by the Thompson brothers of Thompson and Franklinton, LA of both Native American and European descent. My maternal family are proud, immigrants of Haitian and Cameroon ancestry who traveled to Louisiana to make a new start as free, college-educated entrepreneurs. My mother relocated us to Milwaukee, Wisconsin when I was 8 years old, and I still reside here with my 3 children - Demetric, Devan and Dalicia. I am only the 3rd generation in my family since African Americans were freed in the United States, and I work tirelessly and consistently to make my ancestors proud; Otherwise their pain and suffering was for no reason at all! My children are only the 4th generation, which is not a very long recovery period, considering the multiple generations of pain and torment that proceeded us. I am blessed with a 2-yr old granddaughter and we are expecting our first grandson November 2019, and I am more determined than ever, to leave them a legacy of pride and wealth!
My childhood was filled with sexual, mental and physical abuse wrapped in a bow of incest and rape - as is the unspoken fate of too many children in African American, post-slavery families. I broke that generational curse with my children, and second only to all 3 of them graduating from college, that single achievement is one of my most triumphant and proudest accomplishments. At 17 years old, I found myself secretly pregnant, desolate, dependent on welfare for my survival, morbidly obese, homeless and mad at the world and God for not protecting my innocence.
When my first child was born, I looked into his adoring, beautiful, trusting eyes and I decided that I was going to put myself through college, work through my lack of confidence and self-harming, victim mindset and become the mother that he needed me to be and woman, that I needed me to be. I finished high school in June 1989 from Rufus King High School in Milwaukee, WI in the top 10% of my graduating class and with a full-tuition, college scholarship from AT&T (Formerly known as Wisconsin Bell and Ameritech). I graduated with Honors from Alverno College, also located in Milwaukee, WI in May 1993 with a double major in Applied & Mathematical Concepts and Computer Science and minor in Business Administration.
I've worked the past 27 years in Information Technology in the metro-Milwaukee and Chicago areas; Predominately in the Insurance Industry in which I've made a solid career and name for myself in the Data Science and Relational Database Administration world as a Microsoft MVP.
But success without someone to share it with, is a solitude that questions the very categorization of your life as such. I've been married to my wife, Helen, for 10 years and we reside in an affluent suburb of Milwaukee in the village of Menomonee Falls, where we built a home together from the ground up in 2017. Helen and I are avid travelers. We've visited every Caribbean Island at least once, cruised with each of the 4 major Cruise lines, and are working through a world map, one trip at a time, with a mission to conquer the globe and see and seize everything that the world as to offer in terms of experiences and knowledge.
My passion for travel and commitment to integrity, has inevitably brought me to the travel industry as an iBuumerang Ambassador and the "Curvy Boss" of travel. I want to empower my customers to join me on my mission to travel the world; And to do so at the lowest price possible. All of the travel portals you are used to using, from hotels.com, to travelocity, to expedia to bookings.com are literally owned by 2 primary corporate entities, that have monopolized the travel industry with unfair price setting - Until now! Until iBuumerang! iBuumerang is inventively, shaking up the travel industry the same way that Lyft and Uber have done to the taxi business. iBuumerangs' passion for exposing this monopoly and making travel affordable to the masses, in an non-ambiguous, ethical, fair manner is why I've chosen to partner with them; And at the same time, why I chose not to partner with other network marketing travel organizations such as World Ventures who's underlying pyramid structure conveniently limits your earning potential and level of success.
As a Travel Ambassador with iBuumerang, i do not have to be a travel expert. I share discount codes with customers, which enables them to set-up their own personal travel portal. If they like the prices on their selected travel, they are welcome to book. If they don't like the prices, then they don't book. For each booking, iGo4Less informs the customer of how much they are saving on their trip - which they can compare to other quotes for confirmation. In addition, if a customer finds the trip for cheaper on any other travel booking platform, iGo4Less reimburses them a 110% of the difference - And that Ladies and Gentlemen, is a guarantee that I can get behind and want to be a part of.
I am always looking for new customers to support and empower with discount travel, and other like-minded entrepreneurs who want to join my iBuumerang team of "Curvy Bosses". If you are interested in either opportunity - or Both - please be sure to find me on social media or fill out and submit the contact information at the bottom of this page, and I will be in touch within one business day.
Just imagine ... If you could travel for up to 70% less to any destination of your choosing, where would you go? Where wouldn't you go?
