Our Story

“It’s easier to build strong children than to repair broken men!”
Frederick Douglass

 
 

Here at Knocked Up, Now What?®, we have a dream for teen moms to become successful entrepreneurs

A dream to help scared teen moms grow and prosper into successful and financially savvy adult moms. 
Because we believe that no matter what cards you’re dealt—you can always change your hand.

Unfortunately, however, many teen moms don’t see it this way. You're stuck in your own downward spiral of hopelessness and lack of resources—including education.

Yet, education is key to everything.

The key to being able to provide.
The key to being able to thrive.
The key to being able to positively contribute to the economy.
And the key to feel like they’re worth something.

Here at Knocked Up, Now What?®, we’re providing a safe place for teen moms to go and get the support they need, to live the life they choose–and get back to their dreams. Through a variety of entrepreneurial training programs, we’re paving a new path for teen moms, and helping you see that your life isn't over—it's just getting started.

And those dreams of becoming a happy and successful millionaire?

Are still more than fair game!

About the Founder

When Tiphani got knocked up at the age of 17, her dreams of the future were bigger than ever and she was certain that she was going to rule the world.

Until everyone around her told her that she couldn’t.

She’s also the CEO of TIPHANIMONTGOMERY.com, a personal and entrepreneurial development firm that provides online training programs and live events for people who want to achieve massive success through entrepreneurship.

She’s definitely living her purpose, and that’s the very essence of success!
