Tia is a driven, focused and strong woman. She is also a content creator, blogger, podcast host and business owner. I am amazed at how she still finds time for herself with all that she has going on.
Why is she an inspiration to me?
I recently met Tia through a Facebook group that we are both apart of. She reached out to me to do an interview for her podcast Women in Transition. From the moment I met her, I loved her sense of humour, positive vibe and outlook on life. I admire Tia’s passion for helping other women succeed and showcase their stories through her podcast, and The Millennial Wives Club community. It’s not every day that you meet a successful woman, who is passionate about helping other women rise. We definitely need more women like Tia in this world.
Tia is the perfect addition to our inspirational women series. We created this series, as it’s important for us to share stories from other women and hear their accomplishments, regrets, advice and vision. We all have different journeys. But, we can definitely learn from and empower each other.
What is your biggest accomplishment, and why?
My biggest accomplishment has been creating The Millennial Wives Club community and the Women in Transition show. Both are things I dreamed of doing, set a goal to do it, and succeeded in the execution. I’m proud that I didn’t let fear and doubt stop me from creating either platform.
Looking back on your life thus far, is there anything you regret?
If you live a life of doing the best you can, you’ll live a life of no regrets. I can honestly say I have no regrets because everything I want to do, I do it, everything I want to say I say it, and I do the best I can.
What is the best piece of advice you can give another woman?
My advice to another woman is don’t lose yourself to the role. You are more than your role, whether it be a wife, a mom, an entrepreneur, a friend or whatever. You have more to offer yourself and to others than you think. Give yourself grace and time to figure out who you are and your heart’s desires and how you can continue to have your own identity that makes you feel whole.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
In 5 years, I see myself finally seeing myself, the way that others see me. Growing and becoming the woman I am destined to be, and living out my truth unapologetically. I see growth within The Millennial Wives Club Community and my show Women in Transition to new heights that I can’t even imagine. I see myself in a fruitful marriage with the love of my life and starting a family legacy that builds generational wealth.
What is the best piece of advice given to you?
You Can Do Anything You Put Your Mind to. My parents told me that at a young age, and I believed them.
What do you think stops a woman or yourself from putting herself first?
Women juggle so many roles. By nature, we dedicate ourselves to our families and friends and career because those are things that matter to us. We want to be in a good place with those things before we are comfortable focusing on ourselves, essentially putting ourselves last. In our minds, our success rate in these roles validate us, bring us comfort, and confirm we’re doing a good job. Our desire to be successful in those roles keeps us busy. It just seems “selfish” or a waste of time to take a break and put ourselves first because “clearly the needs of others are more important than our own,” right?! No!
What are three words that could be used to describe you?
Creative, Fun, and Genuine
What is your favourite inspirational quote?
I honestly don’t have a favourite quote. I have several affirmations that I think are my favourite, depending on the type of inspiration I aspire to at that time. If I had to pick one for today, it would be “Make yourself your next passion project.” It reminds me to keep that same energy by putting the work into myself as I have with my passion projects.
Thank you, Tia for being open and honest and showing women that you don’t have to dim your light to let others shine. Be sure to check out our other inspirational women here.
