About Tamara

A wife and busy mother of five, Tamara knows first-hand what it feels like to be overscheduled, overbooked and overwhelmed. She knew that she had to find her unique balance and make moves to live her dreams.

You have dreams, big ideas and goals you want to accomplish in this lifetime, but your dreams and ideas stay on the back burner because you have other priorities and responsibilities. You are busy living real life, raising your family, working a full-time job, taking care of the household, and doing what you have to do.

“You don’t have time to think about what’s for dinner, let alone focus on some dream or big idea. At the end of the day, you are exhausted and don’t have the time or energy to focus on yourself or to do the necessary tasks you need to complete in order to accomplish your goals!”

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU? If so, I am so happy that you found this website! I get it! Because I have been exactly where you are right now. As a wife and busy mother of five, I know what it feels like to not have enough hours in the day. I know what it feels like to be overscheduled, overbooked, overworked and overwhelmed!

In order to accomplish my goals and focus on my dreams of becoming an entrepreneur, a speaker, an author, and an inventor, I had to FIND BALANCE, MAKE MOVES and LIVE MY DREAMS. I had to get my dreams off the back burner and I want to help you do the same!

Find Balance, Make Moves, LIVE Your Dreams! Let me show you how…

I’m thrilled you’re here—because we’re a lot alike, you and me. We both have big goals, big dreams and big ideas! We’re both trying to make our dreams come true and create a better life for ourselves and the ones we love. We also have a lot on our plates!

I am a wife, mother of five, speaker, author, advice columnist, entrepreneur, and inventor with two patent-pending products! People often ask me how I manage to do so much. Where do I find the time? My answer to that question is, “You don’t “find” time, you “MAKE” time!” My program: Find Balance, Make Moves, LIVE Your Dreams, will help you find your unique balance so that you have the time and energy to focus on accomplishing your goals. I will also help you develop a plan of ACTION and make the necessary moves you need to make in order for your dreams to become your reality!

If you are feeling stuck because you don’t know where to start or what to do, I can help! If you are feeling overwhelmed in your life and don’t have time to focus on yourself and your goals, I can help! If you are unfulfilled and ready for your next move, I can help!

Being creative and resourceful are my strengths. And I use my strengths every day to help others generate ideas, brainstorm, and solve problems. By sharing my life experiences, knowledge, expertise, professional training and practical wisdom, I help and inspire others to achieve personal success. Through my speaking, coaching, advice column, books and products, I help others figure out “the how” and then “DO THE HOW!” (take the necessary action steps they need to take to move from where they are to where they really want to be). As a testament to proven results, my clients have dubbed me “The How-To Coach!”  Learn More Here

I know first-hand what it’s like to juggle family, career,and education and still find time to pursue your passions and follow your dreams. If I can do it, so can you! And I can help with the “how!” – Tamara


Tamara Hartley was a Godsend to me at a time when I really needed some professional help regrouping and recharging my life. As a busy professional, with work, family, church etc. I was becoming overwhelmed and frustrated with myself. Tamara, and her Personal Success program helped me to peel away the layers, organize my thoughts, reframe my goals, recognize my accomplishments and prepare myself for the next-level thinking I needed to pursue the dreams of becoming an entrepreneur. As a successful physician and leader, I found that I was always pouring out, giving, guiding and directing. But one day, I stopped to ask the question of where do I go to get this same in pouring? Of course, my family, friends and spiritual leaders are all but a call away, I felt like I needed more than that this time. I needed someone to practically speaking, help me declutter my mind, air out my thoughts, purge the stuff that no longer served me and begin to fill the new space with the right energy, mindset and actions to move forward successfully. The program provided the flexibility and convenience I needed to make our sessions doable for my lifestyle. I appreciated the ability to have regular sessions that forced me to set priority times for my own personal development. Also, I benefited from a few “Laser” Coaching Sessions when I needed quick insight and guidance on approaching some unexpected issues that would arise in my day-to-day life. Tamara, has a magnificent way of listening and igniting your own inner being to surface with answers from within. I know I had a lot of baggage from the past that caused my present to be plagued with insecurities that weren’t helping me at all. I have all the credentials, skills, knowledge and abilities needed to fulfill my goals but let fear and lack of confidence leave my dreams smoldering and simmering. Tamara, helped me know that whenever I’m ready to ignite the embers, they will take off into a flame. Tamara’s wisdom, versatility, spiritually connectedness and nonjudgmental attributes make her a wonderful Personal Success Coach.
