Tara is actively making an impact with her thought leadership and presence on global stages and conferences, including recently being accepted as a TEDx speaker in Nottinghamshire, England. Growing up in poverty in an abusive home as the youngest child of five from a single mother was far from an easy start to life. She learned from an early age the power of perseverance and the impact confidence can have on achieving success. Her journey has not been easy and for years of her life she was powerfully unconfident, and it impacted her in her career and in life. As an adult, she worked tirelessly to find the solution to regaining confidence because she could feel that her lack of confidence was holding her back. Since then, Tara has developed a simple 5-step method for regaining confidence that she is ready to share with audiences around the world. She uses her incredible story to inspire and motivate others to action and her goal is to show others how to live truly purposeful lives by developing unstoppable confidence.
