THE BOSS METHOD
A Community Centered Support Service
All children need to have parents that are well equipped and empowered to guide them in the best direction and seek out help when they feel inadequate. Social and community development skills are key points as is education and self discovery for the entire family.
TIM not only offers beauty culture services to enhance self-esteem, in the childbearing community, we also support families interested in pursuing a holistic approach to reproductive health. Our goal is to provide culturally centered learning experiences and other community organized support services. These are provided through our customized membership platform to fit the individual needs of diverse families.
