About Me

Hello! My name is Tanya Thomas and I am here to help you transform your life, to become that person you really want to be to harness your full potential.  My desired outcome is for you to be able to say a resounding YES to all of the above fundamental questions. My purpose in life is to help people understand how phenomenal they are, at their core. It would be an honor and privilege for me to work with you to fully reach your dreams and live the life you know deep down in your heart you are capable.  Think of your life as a wheel, divided into categories such as:  Health, Financial, Spiritual, Relationships, Career, Self-Development, etc. If you are not being totally honest with yourself, the wheel of your life is out of alignment.  Let me help you get your life in balance, to live fully in every area of your life.  My gift to humanity is to be an example of LOVE IS AN INSIDE JOB and FAITH BEYOND WORDS.

My Not So Boring Story

My career began in Corporate America.  I worked my way through the ranks at The Coca-Cola Company. Along the way, creating a product called Fanta Horchata. I was the first person to begin their career on the telephone (phone sales) and rise through the ranks to become a National Account Executive. The next chapter of my journey, I created a partnership that purchased 22 Yum brand franchises and built a successful legacy in the marketplace. In the span of 15 years, that venture grew to 60 profitable locations!  

While I am proud of my business career, it was not satisfying. Inside felt empty and unfulfilling. Clearly something was missing.  I was not living out the destiny for which my life was created. That realization sets in that the road being traveled is the wrong way, feeling lost and confused. It was not about climbing the ladder of success; but having the epiphany that my ladder was leaning against the wrong wall! It was with this clarity the time had come to leave the corporate world.  Certainly change can be scary, and yes there were times of fear and some trepidation.  I understand that it takes courage to step out of your comfort zone, to abandon a life that many would view as successful.  But it started with having a faith in my abilities to start fresh.  It reminds me of the quote by Robert Browning, I show you doubt to prove that faith exists.  I had the courage to begin again, to take a new path that was designed by me, to become an entrepreneur and start my own coaching firm.

Since leaving that corporate world behind, my life has been dedicated to helping others improve the quality of their life.   Acting as a catalyst, I have the knowledge, skills and tools that can transform the quality of your life. Taking the classes, becoming a Results Coach to help others in both their business & personal journeys; creating their ideal life.  I am living my dream, one of fulfillment, through helping others reach their dreams.

Life coaching is my mission because I truly believe that it is my purpose in life; to help people to remember (or realize!) how phenomenal they are at their core. It is my purpose in life to assist them to reach their dreams and live fully in abundance. When speaking of abundance, it is so much more than financial. It is knowing that each day I am investing in myself and maximizing my skills, talents and abilities in all areas of my life.  It is my belief that life is all about being true to who we are and to our chosen mission.

Perhaps you are wondering if you can really do this, make the all the necessary changes? It sounds like it will be hard.  Do you know what is really hard?  Living everyday with that emptiness inside. Knowing you have so much more to offer than what you are demonstrating.  The time to take control of your life is now.  Stop cursing the darkness and allow me to help you let the sunshine in. Remember in life, discipline weighs ounces, regret weighs tons.

I have studied and learned from the best in the world:  Anthony Robbins, Zig Ziglar and John Maxwell to name but a few.  I am both a student and a teacher.  My favorite coach is Vince Lombardi.  He was an agent of change and would not settle for a player not giving their absolute best.  He had the ability to teach, motivate and inspire his players.  He believed that the quality of a person’s life was in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field.  It was not how many times you got knocked down, but how many times you got back up.  He believed that winning is a habit.  Watch your thoughts, for they become your beliefs.  Watch your beliefs, they become your words.  Watch your words, they become your actions.  Watch your actions, they become your habits.  Watch your habits, they become your character. One of my favorite quotes from Coach Lombardi, “Fatigue makes cowards of us all.”

Let me help you discover your true life purpose and find complete fulfillment.  Together, we can look at what’s really going on in your life, what the barriers to fulfillment currently exist, and then use proven tools and techniques to create a life that you are destined to live. 

My Journey

To make sure I had all of the tools required for this new mission, it was important for me to go through extensive training.  Here are a few of my degrees and certifications collected along the way:

  • Certified International Coach Federation (MCC)

  • Certified Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

  • Certified Dream Coach™ (graduate of Dream Coach™ University,)

  • Certified Grief Coach

  • Great Story Coach

  • Approval Addiction Coach.

  • Senior Trainer and Master Coach with The Anthony Robbins Companies

I have an MBA degree and Advanced CTI Certification from The Coaches Training Institute (CTI). I am currently working towards my PhD. in Professional Coaching and Human Development.  I am about to complete my PhD. in Coaching and Psychology from the University of Hawaii.

A Personal Note

On the personal side, one of my passions is to travel, I have been all over the globe, from China, to the Soviet Union to Mexico.  Besides my home in Dallas, my two other favorite places on this planet would be a tie between Fiji and Sicily. A devoted tennis fan and player as well as an Atlanta & Dallas Texas Doubles Champion. I adore ballroom dancing, bowling and golf.  I enjoy sky diving and bungee jumping and have just begun to take trapeze classes.    The Lord blessed me with a phenomenal son who is exploring the music world and making a life for himself. 

I am also an avid volunteer and am currently set to launch the Bravo Bravo Foundation, Inc., which will provide free coaching conversations for those unable to afford them. I am the author of Help! I Am Being Attacked By My Cell Phone, and I am currently working on my second book.

Life is a journey and I am so fortunate, as very few get to do what we love, to share our gifts to the world. I have the tools and life experiences to help make the changes in your life, regardless if you are the president of a large company, just starting out in your career or you know deep down you are not maximizing your potential. 

Be Blessed!

My Phylosophy

When you become my client, we begin a life-changing journey together.  You and I will work in a safe place where you are honored as a unique, blessed soul, full of potential, love and joy.  It is a place of unconditional love where you can work on enhancing your relationships, increasing your business productivity, and put more money in your pockets. Working together we can create a better quality of life for you and your family, achieve a greater balance between work and play, and discover a sense of true purpose for your life.  Choose the program that is right for You!

If there is a gap between where you are now and where you want to be, then there is room for life coaching. Why struggle on your own when you can get what you want out of life in a fraction of the time with the structure, support, and tools of a skilled life coach?

Know this…..

“People hire a life coach because

  • They want more.

  • They want to grow.

  • They want to make a significant difference in their own lives and in the lives of those around them.

How do you add value through your coaching?

When you become my client, we enter a playground together. There are teeter-totters going up and down to help us learn balance. There is a sand pit where you can build castles, and there are swings where you can kick up your heels, laugh and feel the true joy of life. It's all about playing in the game of life and having fun, while you're learning and growing. I place tremendous value on the ability of my coaching to open you up to a place in your life where you can be even more creative, even more excited about life, and even more passionate about who you are. My playground is a place of unconditional love where you can work on enhancing your relationships, increasing your business productivity, and put more money in your pockets. Working together we can create a better quality of life for you and your family, achieve a greater balance between work and play, and discover a sense of true purpose for your life. 

What does coaching mean to you?

When I work with you as a coach, together we enter a world of possibilities. In my own life, leaving corporate America to become a full-time coach was like being freed from prison: I am now free to create and be exactly what I was meant to be on this earth. I can help you achieve the same goal.  Coaching also allows us to see explore your core essence, realizing how awesome and important you are in this world. I want to connect with you on a deep, personal level so that you know beyond any doubt that you and your goals matter to me – big time. You will be in an environment where you can speak freely without fear of judgment. You will be in a safe place where it’s OK to be vulnerable, creative and resourceful. To me, being in a coaching relationship means we can be together without any masks, totally free to discover and unleash your full potential.

What is your personal attitude toward your clients? 

I strive to treat every client as if they are gold . . . because they are! When I meet someone I want to make sure that I leave an imprint in their life that has them saying, "You know what? Anything is possible. I can be loving, I can be happy and joyous, I am blessed." When you treat everybody like that, you'll always have clients. That's how I set all of my clients up to win. And when they win, I win.  It’s that simple.

My Mission

My mission is to help people realize how phenomenal they are, and to encourage them to reach their dreams, and live fully.
