Hiya, I'm Tara

A life coach, podcaster, entrepreneur and unshakable optimistic dedicated to helping you become the person you most want to be.

With an open mind, following my curiosity and not letting the naysayers stop me, I am proud to have created a socially conscious digital world to share all that has helped me.

Through the Rising Tide Podcast, online group coaching program coming soon to social media, I guide people like you to act on the change they want to create dream big and back it up with meaningful action to create results.

One of the things I'm asked:
How did you get started on this path?

Since my teenage years, I’ve been curious about human behaviour. Watching how people acted, what felt right within my body and the type of action that made be feel bah. I’d choose what I’d like to keep and find a way to set it up a one of my habit.

I was also passionate about a multitude of seemingly unconnected things: rugby, swimming, acting, languages, salsa, entrepreneurship, sailing, psychology, communication, fitness, spirituality, nutrition, digital marketing, events, just to name a few.

I lost myself trying to fit in the expectations I thought I needed to be and I was frustrated by the need to choose to be one things in life.

In 2017 I began my personal self-development journeyReading, listening to others who’d one the work and applying it to my life.

I went from lazying around in the morning after snoozing my alarm for 10 plus times, not doing my bed, the dishes after eating and only doing the work at the very last minute, to waking up early without an alarm and feeling rested, to setting my own goals and acting on them, increasing my level of energy and being able to give back to the people I love.

I realised that my unusual combination of interests and skills was a strength, not a liability.

I gave up trying to fit in a conventional box (because I never will), started slowly to build a coaching business from the ground up while doing a multitude of odd jobs to cover my expenses.


From the full time job in interior design to freelancing as a real estate agent, to working 12 years in the event hospitality industry, starting to build a business and getting lost in self doubt, ending an 11 year relationship while being 100% financially dependent to working as a deckhand, video producer, office manager while rebuilding my finances, paying off debts and saving to go travel for 5 months. I’m undeniable proof that…

traditional rules are meant to be broken

I ask myself : “what life do I want to live?”

Once I know my answer, what I choose to take on, are things that are leading me to live the life I choose. 

“If it’s not a hell yes, it’s a no”

“If you don’t prioritise yourself, no one else will”

I lead my life by my actions, and currently I’m sharing my journey through my email updates: Tips, learnings and workshops. Sign up HERE to receive them on Tuesdays. Don’t want updates anymore, unsub anytime
