Personal & Professional Development for Professionals
You’re here! The place where you get the tools, resources and support to move beyond your fears and live your dreams. Your life, your business and your relationships – both professionally and personally – depend on it! As a personal development speaker and coach, I get the opportunity to work with people who know there is more to life, but they just aren’t sure how to achieve success.
Imagine yourself living your life on your own terms rather than living the agenda someone else set for you.
I am here to tell you that you can! You can move beyond your situation and your circumstances and write your own story. And you know the great thing about you writing your story rather than settling for someone else’s story? The story can end the way you want it to.
How do I know this? I was there.
Once upon a time in my life, I experienced what it was like to live with a family not my own. That is the story of a foster child. There was also a time in my life when I was abused emotionally and physically. But you know what? That’s not how my story ends.
What I realize is even though these are facts about my life, they are not my life’s story. One chapter doesn’t make the whole story. When I came to understand this, I picked up my pen and kept writing. I decided that the conflicts of my life would be commas, not periods. I value the lessons life is teaching me, even the hard ones. These lessons and life experiences have been stepping stones into the future Tonya you see today: An owner of 3 businesses, doing it afraid with a smile on my face!
For years I have been able to share my journey through various avenues. As a Corporate Trainer for 16 years for a major finance company I developed leadership programs that started with working on personal development in order to benefit from the end result. Believing I had more to offer I followed my dreams and started my own business. Through this I have been changing and transforming lives one person at a time.
People often say they are never the same once they leave my chair or have a conversation with me. As a Salon owner and a Leadership Developer, I am able to mentor, speak and teach to every client that comes in contact with me, and that is rewarding.
Today I work with executives, managers, directors, entrepreneurs and business owners to help them write their life’s story both personally and professionally. I am also an educator for a major hair care line were I am afforded the opportunity to mentor and motivate other owners, stylist, and assistants on their present journey.
Whether you want to develop your leadership skills, improve the culture within your organization or desire personal coaching, you have come to the right place! I look forward to helping take you and/or your organization to the next level by sharing many of life’s journeys through the John Maxwell teachings, and my personal victories.
