Today we’d like to introduce you to Tana Session.
Tana was born into the New York City foster care system and remained there until she was 3 ½ years old. She experienced various hardships throughout her life, but learned they were not her fault…but they were her problem. She set out to establish a life that was quantum leaps from where she started. Recently recognized as a Huffington Post “10 Female Experts to Follow in 2018,” Tana has built a successful career in Human Resources and a successful business in spite of her background. She continues to use her adversities as fuel and not excuses.
In 2014, Tana established her own award-winning coaching and consulting practice, offering her expertise through speaking engagements, group and 1:1 coaching and consulting. Noted as a powerful international speaker, Tana shares her poignant career and life coaching tips with audiences from a personal perspective.
Tana is a contributing writer for Forbes.com and BlackEnterprise.com, and the author of three books, Inside the Revolving Door: Chronicles From the Human Resources Department, Get Your Career Life in Order, a #1 best-seller and The Little Book of Motivation & Inspiration – Sharing the Journey.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Transitioning from Corporate to Entrepreneurship was not an easy road. Building a brand of my own and creating and nurturing a community of supporters has taken a lot of work, and is an ongoing effort. However, the reward has been being recognized and compensated for what I KNOW…and not just what I DO!
Please tell us about TanaMSession.com.
I was recently recognized by Huffington Post as a “Top Expert to Follow in 2018.” That was a huge accomplishment for me to be recognized for my speaking and coaching work over the past couple of years. As a speaker, I have become known as someone who shares her personal story of adversities to help demonstrate anything is possible when you do the work. As a coach, my clients have experienced huge leaps of success beyond their own wildest dreams. They have recognized me as a true advocate and mentor, but someone who will also be honest with them and hold them accountable for achieving their personal and professional goals.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite memory from childhood is the Christmas when I received my first bike. It was pink with a basket and had tassels on the handlebars. That bike was my ticket to freedom. I was able to ride to my best friend’s house with all of my Barbies in the basket and we would play with our dolls for hours on her front porch.
