Be Who You Came To Be

The secret to personal and professional growth, career pathing and employee retention

“Be who you came to be”. The idea that we are all born predestined to do something extraordinary with our lives. A permission slip to continue to grow, change and evolve. But how do we empower the workforce to grow, change and evolve within an organization? Finding balance between career, family and community continues to be a struggle for the workforce, especially for working mothers. The 2020 COVID19 crisis has illuminated the struggles to prioritize family and career. Challenges in balancing career and family often result in feelings of exhaustion, inadequacy, guilt, and unhappiness.
Living our purpose, balancing career and home and living happy are three priorities among the workforce.
In response to these situations, employees ask themselves many questions:

  • How do I make an impact and grow within the organization?
  • How do I find my purpose at work and home?
  • How can I be successful at work and in the home?
  • How do I become the best version of myself?
  • How do I create sustainable happiness?

Be Who You Came to Be is a thought-provoking, inspiring, genuine, and fresh approach that answers these questions and helps professionals unlock and unleash their purpose in life. Tara takes a new and refreshing approach to help the workforce find balance and be who they came to be. She combines her 20 years of success in corporate and social selling with her role as a wife and mother and offers her audience an experience and a message that is sincere, motivating, relatable and game changing.
