Think you know me?

Think you know me?

I’ve grown, and though you may think you know what I’m going to say, allow me to (re)introduce myself.

First, the basics:

I’m a life coach, digital nomad, bestselling author, professional speaker, made-up word lover, amateur salsa dancer, and blanket hog who often wonders out loud if I should call myself a Self-Actualization Coach because my true north and the driving force behind all my work is the belief that dream acceleration is REALLY about self-actualization.

Here’s a bit of my story and why I’ve been musing on such things:

On a good day, I felt restless. On a bad day, I felt like a caged animal.

Exasperated, I came home from work to my dark, musty, basement apartment – a glaring reminder that I was not just figuratively, but literally, underground. Drowning in student loan debt, I rarely answered my phone because collection agencies were calling me daily. Trying to find my way in the world wasn’t easy. All the emotional and practical baggage of difficult family dynamics and estrangement seemed to all be hitting me at once. Much of it not my fault, I felt like a victim of circumstances who was dealt an unfortunate hand. I felt profoundly alone in my struggles.

The job I begrudgingly got at an Ivy League university to establish some stability, looked good on paper, but my soul was dying, a little more every day. If I had to sit through one more hour-long meeting that could have been communicated by an email, I was going to lose it! Things were done in inefficient ways for no reason other than it’s the way they’d always done it. This felt archaic to me, but rethinking conventions wasn’t welcomed or encouraged. Waiting for that clock on the wall to say 5:00 felt like an insult to my personal integrity and pride, not to mention that I had finished my work hours earlier. The starched button down shirt I wore, because I thought I should, felt like a straight-jacket, a costume that belonged to someone else – but not me.

I knew I couldn’t stay.

While going through the motions on all the things I thought I was supposed to do, I was losing myself. On autopilot, I’d drive to work, or the grocery store, or the gym (when I could get myself to go) feeling more and more disconnected from who I was. I wasn’t challenged. I wasn’t inspired. I felt contained, micro-managed, and caught in status quo games that I didn’t want to play. I felt like I was drowning, and I knew no one was coming to save me.

Underneath my restlessness and frustration, was a growing sense that I was meant for MORE, that this couldn’t possibly be all I was meant to do, be, or have.

I knew I needed to take the reins and reshape my life, to reshape my reality, to figure out how to not live in a basement forever, to create a life that was my own, that reflected the truth of who I was.

It was from that dark musty basement apartment, that I gazed out that teeny-tiny window with a view of the sidewalk and the tires of cars passing by … and I’d dream.

I dreamed of having the freedom to travel when and where I please. I dreamed of having my own location-independent company so that I could work from anywhere. I dreamed of a home with lots of natural light. I dreamed of becoming a bestselling author. I dreamed of wealth on my own terms. I dreamed of finding love. I dreamed of having time and energy for creativity and play. I dreamed of making a positive impact, serving others in meaningful ways that made their life better. I dreamed of being myself without boundaries.

The voice of my soul and seeds of my own self-actualization were surfacing

Naming my dreams felt so powerful. I acknowledged the dreams in my heart and imagined what my life could be – despite having absolutely no idea how to make ANY of it happen at the time.

People said my dreams were impossible, that I should “settle down,” stay at my job, just be more grateful. They were wrong.

Not only have I achieved my “impossible” dreams and the freedom I so craved, I’ve built a business around helping YOU chart your own course, live your dreams, and create the life you think you cannot have. I have coached thousands to go beyond striving, wishing, and “someday-ing,” to experience the true freedom life has to offer. Rethinking conventions and challenging status quo “have tos,” while helping people rediscover themselves and realize what’s possible, has made for a profoundly fulfilling, decades-long career. Looking to the horizon, I am expanding my impact daily, determined to reach millions of people with my writing, coaching, and speaking.

Your dreams, like mine, are fuel on your path to self-actualization.

Regardless of the specifics of what your dreams are, I stand for them as by-products and bonus results of your becoming. Who you become in the process is the real win, and how you grow and stretch into being the person who would have them is the real work. (It’s also where the biggest rewards are found.)

I help you create the life you think you cannot have while becoming the person you are meant to be.

What is the life YOU think you cannot have ? Who do you need to become in order to create it?

Love,

PS – If you are ready for self-actualization with a side of dream realization, I am opening up 5 spots for my FREE Top Shelf Session with Tara Assessment, a 1:1 conversation where you will gain clarity on your dreams and how they reflect and empower the person you are becoming, insight into what’s been holding you back, and a renewed sense of hope about how to courageously break free of obstacles to achieve what you want with a customized strategic plan for your desired future.

 

Breaking the Mold on Coaching

Breaking the Mold on Coaching

“High-level coaching does not have to be cost prohibitive to be life changing.”

I do things differently than most coaches in the industry.

Through my company, Tara Sage Inc., I offer several comprehensive signature coaching programs:

The Dream Acceleration™ Program

The Speak Up™ Program

Nomadic Living 101 

… to name a few.

I provide in-depth seminars and trainings, both online and in person events.  

If you haven’t already, my FREE Dream Acceleration Strategies video training is a good one to grab, for sure.

And I offer Private Coaching. 

Most of my clients come from other clients.

Client referrals are and (since in 2004) have been, the primary source – like, 80% – of how I attract new clients into my business. Most people find me and my programs because someone they know recommended they connect with me.  

Referrals really are the best testimonial. 

Here’s an example of an email introduction made from a past client recommending that the woman she knows connect with me.

She wrote:

“I told you about the difference that Tara Sage has made for my business. She truly is a dream acceleration coach, listens deeply for what wants to come to light for her clients, is a brilliant life hack expert and knows how to create organic workflows, compelling messages and teaches how to enroll clients gracefully and effectively.

With her help I was able to double my income and generate my best revenue year ever – and I didn’t kill myself in the process and had fun with it. Her first 30-minutes are at no charge and you will have an opportunity to unlock something of value even in that initial engagement.”

Private coaching obviously provides the most customized and personal level support, but something I’ve consistently heard from folks who are in my signature coaching programs (The Dream Acceleration Program in particular), is how unique it is to find such affordable content-rich coaching programs that INCLUDE built-in personal customized private support.

 

The industry standard is that you usually get one OR the other – not both.

But anyone who knows me knows, I’m a BOTH/AND kind of person.

I re-write the rules.

I manifest new horizons.

I color outside the lines.

I don’t accept that things have to keep being done the way they’ve historically been done.

I always see new avenues and opportunities to create results.

I love finding new ways to break old molds.

I set and create my own standards about what’s possible.

I’m told that this is rather contagious. 😉

My clients quickly start seeing new opportunities where they thought there weren’t any.

They start having courageous breakthroughs in behavior patterns.

Narrow limited views suddenly open up to become broad, vast and expansive.

Possibilities they never considered before, or that seemed impossible, rapidly start coming into focus.

I love finding new ways to do things better.

And I’m fierce about my clients’ success.

As a rule, I don’t hold back on what I know will make the biggest difference for them.

Private 1:1 Coaching + Comprehensive anytime-access to invaluable at-your-fingertips content = The magic mix.  

It’s the java juice, the secret sauce, the dynamic duo.

This supercharged combination is the potent pairing that gets results.

I say this from my years of experience, integral Masters level education, and many many many hours of coaching individuals, people spanning four continents.

Customized support + timeless universal wisdom = the winning combination. 

This is what makes all the difference for you, your goals, your dreams, and your success.

Working in this way, I am able to provide high-level coaching without it being cost prohibitive.

High level coaching does NOT have to be cost prohibitive to be life changing!

Who do you know that could benefit from high-level, private, comprehensive, cost-effective, custom-designed, transformative expert support? I always ask new clients how they heard about my work, and as a referral-based business I make a point to show my gratitude for each and every referral received. 🙂

My wish for YOU.

Want to know what I wish for you this year?

First, I’m so grateful for you. I am truly delighted that you and I are connected. And this year I’m on a mission — to touch more lives than I have in all of the 15+ years I’ve been in business, combined. It all starts right away, today, with YOU.

Because, you know what I wish for you??

Well, for starters … all. things. good.

My personal life’s mission and my business’ mission are one-and-the-same: To help YOU live your dreams & create a life and business that you don’t need a vacation from.

I want YOU to be so delighted by your life, and your life’s work, and have it all feeling so good, and all working so well for you, and supporting your dream lifestyle so beautifully … that you don’t feel antsy, or irritated, or longing to get away from it all. You aren’t itching for an escape.

(Vacations can be great, but what’s even better is when everyday life is so life-affirming, and gratifying, and so incredibly joy-filled that you don’t *need* a vacation. My wish for you is an existence so delightful that, when you DO take a vacation, you won’t feel an ounce of dread or remorse when it’s time to return to your everyday life…)

Here’s more of my wishes for YOU:

==> I wish you all the joy and delight you can stand.

==> I wish you to know and experience the ease, fun, and abundance that comes with working smarter, not harder.

==> I wish you to have a life (and business) that delights and supports you so much, that you don’t need a vacation.

==> I wish you wealth on your own terms. (yes, money – but money is only part of the picture)

==> I wish you the freedom to travel, adventure, and work from whereever and whenever you want.

==>I wish you the peace and ease of being authentically and uniquely YOU, and getting paid for it.

==>I wish you to feel unapologetically good — in your body, heart and mind — every single day.

==> I wish you the kind of love, health, kindness, abundance, and joy that naturally fills you, expands, overflows, and is cause for celebration.

==> I wish you to love your life so freakin’ much that you truly can’t wait to get-up-and-out-of-bed in the morning.

THIS IS WHAT I DO. This is how I live, and this is what I help others create and experience.
