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.
