Be Who You Came to Be Workshop

Conquer your saboteurs | strengthen your mind | unlock higher levels of success | create genuine happiness | own your authenticity | embrace fear & take risks | create, own and live the life you deserve and desire


Finding our purpose, balancing career and home and living a truly fulfilled life are three priorities for working women. In response to these situations, we ask ourselves many questions, including: 

  • How do I make an impact? 

  • How do I find my purpose?  

  • How do I create sustainable happiness? 

  • How can I be successful at work and at home? 

  • How can I eliminate comparisons and embrace my authenticity?

  • How do I become the best version of myself? 

  • How do I move through fear, take calculated risks and go all in on my life and career?

Be Who You Came to Be is a thought-provoking, inspiring, genuine and fresh approach that answers these questions and helps women unlock and unleash their purposes in life.  Tara takes a new and refreshing approach to help her audience find purpose and be who they came to be. Through personal experience, stories and research she walks her audience through a three-step process to "be who they came to be". She combines her 20 years of success in corporate and social selling along with her role as a wife and mother so she can offer her audience an experience and a message that are sincere, motivating, relatable and game changing.

Dawn Dahlby is a Certified Financial Planner and Wealth Wellness Expert who teaches people how to LIVE WELLthy™.


It’s not about just having money in the bank. It’s about living a “WELLthy life,” where each person creates their own unique balance between earning and spending, saving, and giving, work and play. A wealth-building plan for a WELLthy life supports a meaning-filled lifestyle aligned with a person’s purpose, happiness, and self-worth.

Money and emotions are not a good combination but you CAN master your thinking by challenging your beliefs, managing your emotions through self-awareness, and aligning all aspects of your life.


Dawn will help you gain clarity for what you want out of life and provide tools so you can learn to earn the money to make it happen. She’ll empower you to stop worrying about spending today, in your efforts to save for tomorrow (goodbye fear and scarcity). She’ll lead you to find financial peace and happiness! This is not your average keynote!
