WHO ARE YOU?
You're a Seeker, an Iconoclast,
a Rebel, a Free-spirit...
You are on a mission, yours is a life of purpose, whether you have already manifested that or not and you want to take that further.
Maybe you're an artist, a cultural creative, or an awakened business owner already. You are on your way to coaching clients and making an abundant living. You’re ready to write your book (or leverage the one you already have), write and perform a solo show, or an inspired TED style talk.
Or, you’re already written a book, or done a talk, and want to leverage that work into a lucrative and thriving coaching business.
It doesn’t matter where you’re at in the actual process.
You're here now
You know that you are destined to go all the way in whatever you do, no matter the cost.
You’re a restless and wildly creative spirit with a huge offering inside of you and you are not going to be satisfied until you are living a life that surpasses your dreams.
You love people, you’re deeply creative and you love the planet we live on.
You’re an adventurer of the soul. You’re here to play big and rest deeply, knowing that the life you are living is a manifestation of your deepest, truest “you.”
You long to work and play at your highest level and you know that you can thrive within the right structures. But they cannot be rigid structures and they have to be true to who you are and how you express yourself.
You want to create meaning in all you do, and generate prosperity while doing it.
You want an depth based, lifestyle business, where you can titrate clients and family, travel and working on your own creative projects on your own timetable.
You are seriously “over” bootstrapping. You are done learning “the hard way.”
Maybe you haven’t been sure what you’re looking for. But you’ve intuited that it’s out there. You are looking for a process that is not piecemeal. You’ve been there, done that. You’ve hired overpriced coaches who don’t deliver.
You get their advice and then you’re left once again, unmotivated and overwhelmed, on your own trying to figure it out.
Launch a new business. Write a book. Come up with a talk. Get your
online services pulled together and perfectly marketed.
Many coaches and gurus
Very, very few, if any, offer the hands on, co-creative support to guide you step by step completely through the process to completion.
Among my long term clients, I am known as “the completion coach." I am deeply and firmly rooted in story, transformation and business.
But at the end of the day, I make certain that projects get completed.
Story and creativity are illusive gifts. They are constantly in flux. But ultimately, it is essential that we make choices and create structures, letting go of perfectionism or creative collapse, so that our projects are grounded in the world, so that we can serve and share our purpose and offering with others.
Additionally, the completion of a meaningful creative project, including an income generating, unique business, creates room for more dreams to follow.
The more we complete, the more we up-level our own consciousness and uncover new offerings to create.

Tanya is a dynamo! She understands story as a mechanism for soul growth and has a willingness to coach outside-the-box. Her methods allow for an organic process to unfold, which I value greatly. Tanya's ability to hold space for my deepest desires has been the most valuable part being coached as I complete my one woman show, Becoming Anneli, and develop my own story coaching business.
I first met Tanya in 2014 at The Black Mesa writing conference in Santa Fe where she was one of the presenters. I had come to this workshop for inspiration and community, hoping to learn something that would help me focus on one of the many creative projects I'd begun, but never finished. When Tanya stood before the group and asked us, "How many of you have unfinished projects?" I and dozens of other women raised our hands. What she said next struck me to my core. "When you abandon your projects, you abandon yourselves." As someone who had been abandoned as as child, those words moved me. After the conference those words stayed with me and I knew I had to connect with this woman who had uttered such a profound truth. I called her and we talked about her work with storytelling and coaching, the power of completion, and what it could mean to "live into and embody" my story.
After talking with her, I knew that I needed to work with her in two important ways -- to find the strength to complete my own project and to learn how to help others do the same. Under her direction, I would write and perform a one woman show -- a "memoir on steroids" as Tanya described it. And I would go on to work with Tanya to develop my own story coaching business. Not only has Tanya helped me complete one of the many unfinished projects I had when I met her two years ago, she coached and directed me in the performance of a one woman show "Chalkdust," based on my experiences as a young white teacher learning from my students in the African American community -- something that I had been working on in solitude and silence for decades. Working with Tanya on "Chalkdust" changed my life. No longer was I someone who wanted to do a one woman show, I was someone who had done it! That was a huge breakthrough in my life and gave me the confidence to share what I learned with others. And as I took my story out into the world, sharing it with other educators, I realized the power of my play to inspire other teachers to tell their personal stories.
My current work with Tanya, where she is helping me develop my own story coaching business, is a culmination of all of my life's experiences --- my teaching career, my writing, my personal journey -- helping other people tell their stories is a way for me to share my knowledge and to become whole. Coaching others to mine for, develop and tell their own stories for healing and transformation has been Tanya's life's work. She has lived every aspect of the process, worked with countless people and helped birth thousands of stories. What an act of generosity that Tanya is offering all of her accumulated knowledge and wisdom to people like you and me who want to move this work forward in our own way."
I hired Tanya to develop and direct my solo show musical. It was the most rewarding project of my life. So I decided to go deeper with Tanya. I trusted and respected her. I hired her to work with me one on one to develop a business.
Tanya is a steady compass that holds me to my deepest dreams. When I want to abandon myself, Tanya is there to hold my feet on the ground. Tanya is adept at addressing the “the work behind the work”…the fears, roadblocks, and issues. She is a safe space for me to push through it all. Tanya is an expert in leading Storytelling Workshops. She coached me through the process of leading workshops, providing curriculum and support.
Tanya is very generous! She lives by her mantra to get her clients to completion – whatever it takes. She goes above and beyond. This is not a cookie cutter business plan. Tanya is committed to developing your own unique business and vision.
Tanya models successful entrepreneurship for creatives. She not only gives you a business model but she leads you towards the most important aspect of your business: your highest vision, your highest consciousness, and your most generous and loving self. She will help you develop a business that not only makes money but helps people and changes the world for the better. Working with Tanya is a blessing and valuable investment.
