Big Why

While working in the corporate world, Tanya’s soul longed for creative expression…to speak to who she really was through what she did, to get out of the box that ‘didn’t sit well with her spirit.’

Mindset Challenge

The ‘I’m not good enough!’ boogeyman ran not only ran through Tanya’s head when she first started, but he still seeps in from time to time. If you think you are not good enough you may low-ball your prices and even not finishing projects because you think they won’t be successful. She took a three-fold approach to successfully overcoming this mindset.

Energy Plan


Tanya’s personality is like the White Rabbit in Alice and Wonderland, rushing from one thing to the next. So now, instead of pushing through, she takes a 15 to 20 minute power nap, as she has realized that she was not getting enough sleep. She combines these naps with tapping into the power of her subconscious mind to wake her up without an alarm.


To recharge, Tanya shuts every electronic device off, then goes to a movie and watches a movie for two hours.

Business Fun

Teaching and training and sharing just lights Tanya up! She’s currently building a community in her Content Conversion Academy.

Business Vision

Tanya’s mission and vision has become much more clear: she sees her company over the next five years becoming a premier online training company specializing in the unique marketing needs of the solo entrepreneur.
