Season 2/Episode 4: The Power of Surrender

In this last episode of the mompreneur series, Tammy wants to shift your mindset on the word surrender. Surrender is perceived as negative. Someone who surrenders may be seen as weak, giving in to the enemy, allowing someone to take control of you. Yet, what if we were to take the word surrender and become empowered by it? As Mompreneurs, we are juggling quite a bit and at times, not in our favor, but what if we were to embrace another action to support us? Listen in as Tammy breaks down what surrender can be if you're willing to shift your mindset and focus on what matters.

Bonus Episode: It's About Damn Time! My Chat with Arlan Hamilton

Bonus Episode: It's About Damn Time! My Chat with Arlan Hamilton

In this episode, I was blessed to speak with Arlan Hamilton, Founder and Managing Partner of Backstage Capital and author of "It's About Damn Time" : https://www.itsaboutdamntime.com/

Backstage Capital (https://backstagecapital.com) is a venture capital firm who, to date, has invested over $7M in more than 120 companies led by underrepresented founders.

Arlan is someone who I admire greatly and serves as an amazing example of grit, determination, perseverance and of course, inspiration for me and so many others. I was selected to be on her book launch team and when the opportunity came for podcast hosts to interview her, I jumped at the chance!

Listen in as we discuss Arlan's background, her journey, golden nuggets of knowledge/wisdom contained in the book and what we as entrepreneurs can do NOW in our current state of affairs.

Episode 9: Attention All Beauty Professionals: Are You Ready?

Episode 9: Attention All Beauty Professionals: Are You Ready?

I broke all podcasting rules on this episode! No editing, no filters, no 2nd recordings, no do-overs and a TON of fillers. Just real talk about the thoughts swirling through my head when I think about my wellness and beauty professionals!

As a follow up to my LinkedIn post on 4/13/2020, I've been thinking about my wellness, health and beauty professionals. I've been wondering if they are thinking about their people, processes and systems/technology to handle the influx of new and existing clients as soon as the stay @ home orders are removed.

Listen in as I ask thought provoking questions which can only answered with ACTION. These are the thoughts and questions swirling in my head and may spark a level of creative thinking to support your efforts.

Always consult your accountant, lawyer or professional advisor before executing on your efforts or any information related to a change in your lifestyle, business or finances.

I'm not a beauty professional nor have a worked in the industry. I'm just a bonafide "pamper-myself" junkie who loves a great massage, haircut and eyebrow waxing who can't wait to sit in the chair or lay on the table again!

I'm also an entrepreneur who LOVES supporting businesses, especially small businesses to thrive!

Episode 8: Four Key Aspects of Empowerment.

Episode 8: Four Key Aspects of Empowerment.

As individuals, we have been so conditioned to believe the only way we can operate is within parameters that have been set forth for ourselves WHEN we become empowered, and yet we don’t understand we have everything we need. Being empowered is a knowing; truly believing you have everything you need to execute your goals and operate within your vision.

We often struggle to go outside of the limitations we have placed on ourselves. Empowerment is about helping people change how they think about themselves, so they can operate and think about what they can and cannot do.

Empowerment has more depth than people realize as they say the word. 

There are 4 aspects to empowerment:

1. Empowerment is the freedom to BE you!

2. Confidence is the first pillar to being empowered.

3. Stretching or going beyond the limitations you have set for yourself is a viable way to BEING more empowered.

4. Understanding… truly knowing and believing you are more than the parameters you have set around yourself.
