TAMARA HARTLEY (That's Me!) IS NOT A PSYCHOLOGIST, COUNSELOR, SOCIAL WORKER, LAWYER OR A LICENSED MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL!
So, what do I do? As a wife, a mother, and an entrepreneur, 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? I know first-hand what it's like to be at a crossroads or a critical point in life. And what it's like to need some advice 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 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.
My intent with this website is only to offer advice and information of a general nature to help you in your quest for harmony and emotional and spiritual well-being. In the event you use any of the advice and information given on this website (or through my books and products) for yourself, which is your constitutional right, I don't assume responsibility for your actions and outcomes. The advice and strategies given through this website may not be suitable for every situation.
Again, I am not a medical professional! This advice column is written and shared with the understanding that I am not engaged in rendering medical, legal, financial, accounting, or other professional services. If expert assistance or help is required, the services of a competent professional person should be sought.
What is advice anyway? Advice is simply another point of view that can help you better weigh your options; find additional resources and solutions; look at situations differently, and give you the confirmation and confidence you need to move forward. It can be beneficial to have the advice and counsel of a third-party who is removed from your situation.
And last but not least, always remember that YOU, and no one else, is in charge of your happiness and the decisions that you make. Even after someone gives you advice, shares a different perspective, and imparts wisdom, YOU ultimately make the final decision!
