Today we’d like to introduce you to Tanjie Brewer.
Hi Tanjie, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
It was in 2009 when I was faced with a life event that would ignite my purpose more than ever. I was working for a Fortune 500 company in a position I worked hard to achieve. My career was going well when I got a call from my Mother. She informed me that she was diagnosed with high blood pressure. She wanted to do some natural remedies. However, two days later, she had a pain in her chest. She went to the doctor but it was too long of a wait, so she left. With sadness to write, she passed away two days later in her sleep. That was the event that changed my life. I couldn’t help but think of the healthy lifestyle implementations she could have done to help her be here today. Many people have ailments that can be reversed with knowledge. My dear mother’s passing prompted me to resign from my amazing career and become more purposeful with my passion for transforming lives. I soon launched my company called Stylish and Fit in 2010. I made it my mission to see others grow and grey. The company launched its award-winning program called The Lifestyle of Vitality. It’s a four-month program that has transformed more than a thousand women and men around the globe. The transformations have been life-changing for the participants not just physically, but mentally and spiritually. I noticed the difference that the challenge was making in people’s lives. Many were discovering a deeper level of their purpose. My tagline soon became, Helping others Rock their Purpose with Vitality. What I do is certainly beyond the physical. Sure, I have produced incredible body transformations where I even took a participant from a size 22 to a size 6 and off medications. However, the work that I do is more than just helping people decrease their waistline, it’s about helping them discover the greatness of who they are through discipline & to perform their purpose long and strong with greater energy, vitality, and vigor. Today, I’ve just finished a manual and virtual program for churches and other organizations across the globe. It’s important that people are taught health and wellness principles to increase longevity and optimal health for a lifetime. I launched a vegan cookbook in 2019 and I’m working on my third book. There’s many other projects I’m working on to continue to better the lives of people around the world.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
There have definitely been struggles along the way. I had to move states at the height of my business. I already had very successful sponsors and partnerships. Not to mention, I was a regular on a local TV show as the style and fitness expert. It was not easy to have to switch locations. That took some readjusting and I had to rebuild. Especially my connections. However, the move pushed me into a more global approach with regard to my business.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am the CEO of my own company called Stylish and Fit. It is a company that focuses on total Wellness and Transformation. I am a certified nutritionist, a certified personal trainer, a speaker, an author, and a wardrobe stylist. I am known for drastically transforming bodies and lives. I am also known for the wellness events I produce as well as my ability to help further launch people into their purpose after their Stylish and Fit transformations. I am most proud of my 12-year-old son. I am very grateful to be the mother of such an exceptional child. I am also proud of the fact that I’ve had the opportunity to flourish in my purpose for over a decade. Not many people love what they do. What sets me apart is my holistic creative approach to wellness. I incorporate fashion as far as helping people tap into their signature style once they’ve transformed their bodies and lives. I believe that everyone has their own unique beauty apart from everyone else. Further tapping into it ignites the desire to want to care for their bodies and it increases their presence in every environment they enter. When it comes to wellness, I don’t leave anything on the table. I address it all. The physical, mental, the nutrition, the style, and the purpose.
How do you think about luck?
I actually don’t believe in luck. Be it bad or good. However, I do believe that everything happens for a reason. I believe that when you live a life of intention and focus, we all have the ability to clearly recognize God-given opportunities. We all have blessings that are destined to come our way. It’s up to us to recognize to seize the moment and the opportunities. I believe that I have had hard lessons in my business and life in which I’ve learned from. On the flip side, I have had much success which further propels my desire to move forward and accomplish the hard tasks. I believe that it takes hard work. Some people have been in the right place at the right time to shake hands with what I call is a destiny helper. Some may consider that as luck, I consider it a divine connection. Our steps are ordered by God. I generally take a faith approach with regard to my life and business.
