Earlier this year, profiled the story of Tyla-Simone Crayton (pictured), a then 15-year-old home-schooled girl who is one of the co-founders of Sienna Sauce.

Tyla-Simone, her mother Monique Crayton, and her aunt Nia Crooks are the trio of partners who are the nexus of this thriving condiment and food product brand. 2019 has been a great year for these three as Sienna Sauce continues to thrive as an upper six-figure per year company.

Sienna Sauce (formerly called Sienna Wings) has only been in business four months shy of two years. However, when Tyla-Simone’s mother Monique left her full-time at the beginning of 2019 to completely commit to her family business, things began to take off.

The story of Tyla-Simone and her family is quite compelling. They were able overcome various personal obstacles. In the process of doing so, they were able to flee the confines of conventional living. Tyla-Simone was even home-schooled by her mother and aunt during this process.

As of January 2019, Sienna Sauce has developed a partnership with M.L. Billion, an investment firm that also specializes in the enrichment of investor portfolios, which rely on the use of crypto-currency. This group believes in Sienna Sauce and is helping them launch other ventures.

The latest venture Sienna Sauce has embarked upon is the production of a documentary film, which is based on the lives of its three co-founders. Tyla-Simone is such a young star in the making. Her genteel demeanor, confidence, and comfort in front of the camera are evident in the film’s trailer.

    As an educator and music therapist of African descent I am keenly concerned with the education of our Black children. I’d like to become part of the network that can expand the Black homeschool network and would love more information.
