Tamra stated, “It's such an amazing feeling to know my AH-HA moment is allowing my passion and my purpose to come together to benefit the lives of others. Whether I'm planning an event or speaking to a group, I know it will make a difference."

"The Pillars of Confidence," released in 2015, was written by Tamra and contains specific, laser-focused actions YOU can take to guide YOU through key life areas and become more confident in YOUR personal and professional life. Be a confident woman. Be a confident leader. Be a confident sales person. With confidence, YOU choose.
