Tamara Hartley is Your Advice Guru and How-To Coach

What dreams or ideas have you put on the back burner?

Which of your goals remain unaccomplished?

What life situations have you stuck?

As a wife, a mother of five (Yes, five! I have three daughters and a son and I gained a bonus son along the way) and an entrepreneur with multiple projects and endeavors, I know first-hand what it means to have many balls in the air! For years I juggled my family, a full-time executive career, pursuing a master's degree, and trying to get my own business off the ground.


At the same time, I've experienced many obstacles and setbacks in my life. I've endured and faced many of the real-life situations that many of us face...Divorce, Bankruptcy, Foreclosure, Financial Hardship, Being a Single Parent. LIFE HAPPENED! And through it all, I am still standing and here to tell you that there is light at the end of the tunnel! I also want to tell you that you CAN have the things you want in life! Your dreams CAN be your reality!

every dream is possible...YOUR DREAM IS POSSIBLE!”

So, what do I do?
I use my life experiences and lessons learned to help others. I have long since been the go-to person for family, friends, employees and coworkers seeking advice when dealing with life changes and making tough decisions. Never one to shy away from sharing my own experiences, I use my personal life experiences and lessons learned to give others a different perspective and help them make critical decisions in their life, relationships and careers.

Why the Advice Column (Your Advice Guru)? I know first-hand what it’s like to be at a critical point in life and to need some advice and/or a word of wisdom. I have experienced and overcome many life situations, obstacles and setbacks. From being a teenage mother and still attending Howard University; to being a single parent raising two children; being married, separated, and divorced; and balancing a career and raising four children. I give REAL advice from REAL experience.

While coaching is my core business, I maintain my free advice column because I believe that in order to achieve personal success; you must also have balance and harmony in your personal life and relationships. If relationships and other drama are causing distractions in your life, you can’t focus on accomplishing your goals, living your dreams or being the best you that you can be.

Why the Coaching Programs (Your How-To Coach)? As a coach, I focus on personal success and helping you take real action to accomplish your goals. For many years, I put my own goals and dreams on the back burner. Between being a wife, mother and working a full-time job, I didn’t have the time or energy to focus on a dream. And then I had no idea where or how to start.

My coaching programs and products will help you figure out “The How” and then take action to “Do the How,” because anyone can dream about a dream, but I have learned that it is in your daily actions where dreams become reality. I know how to help you Find Balance, Make Moves and LIVE Your Dreams!

My Professional Experience: I have over 20 years' experience coaching, managing and developing individuals as well an an extensive creative background. I spent most of my career in the publishing world, studying and documenting success, and telling the stories of ordinary individuals who overcame extraordinary circumstances to achieve their personal success. I have had the opportunity to interview and meet some of our countries brightest stars, many of whom are well-known celebrities, corporate executives, government and community leaders, entrepreneurs and up-and-coming professionals. Little did I know, at the time, that studying success would become the backdrop for my personal life and my coaching business.
