Has it been a smooth road?
It has undeniably been a jarring journey but also incredibly gratifying. I’ve learnt so much about myself and people during the last five years of pursuing this path. There were moments I questioned myself; Is this really what you want to do? Don’t you think you should get a 9-5? How are you going to pay the bills this month?… But, I kept going and trusting God because I knew here is where I was meant to be.
Taking a risk is not always about financial investments. Most of the time, the risk is a personal investment. When we see ourselves as worthy of the blessing we stand to gain, no amount of money will stop us from moving forward. Yes, I’ve struggled and had some crazy moments but it was all worth it because it made me wiser, stronger and happier.
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
What I do is multifaceted but they are all connected in this beautiful array of gifts. The core of what I do is to motivate others and create a space for growth, education and self-development. As a host for my show on YouTube, Tam Talks, I am blessed to interview guests for all walks of life; creatives, businesses, technology, founders, etc. We learn from each other and these lessons I use in my motivational talks.
We as humans often only see the success and want that but don’t take time to understand and appreciate the journey to get there. We also quit because we think nobody understands and nobody believes in the dream. Mixing motivational speaking and interviewing has been wonderful because dreamers get to see what happens when we become doers.
I am a strong advocate for dream chasers.
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
