When Tamara isn't running her multimillion dollar company, she's spending time with her daughter, Minty, who was born in 2002. Tamara's already designed the smallest pair of Jimmy Choos for her biggest fan. "Being a mother is the greatest thing in the world," she says.

Tamara says her now ex-husband, Matthew Mellon, struggled with drug addition, and they separated in 2003. Although it was a difficult time, Tamara says she grew from the experience. "I have a personal motto that I live by, which is feel the fear and do it anyway," Tamara says. "If you fail, you get up and you keep trying again. I'd love to be an inspiration for women to say they can do it."

Tamara shared this update with Oprah: "Matthew's been sober for a year and a half, and he is being a fabulous father to Minty."
