*NEW YORK – Self-proclaimed queen of “from foster care to fabulous,” Tana M. Session, a successful career coach, international speaker and author knows how to turn a painful past into a purposeful career. As a rising star on the national stage of women’s empowerment, the Huffington Post named Session one of the “Top Female Experts to Follow in 2018.”
Now the mogul, who has worked with companies such as Xerox and Ernst & Young, and been featured in Essence Magazine, Forbes.com, and BlackEnterprise.com plans to share the secrets that led to her success during a one-day “Stop Being the Best Kept Secret” master class on Saturday, May 19 in Times Square in New York City. The master class will also be held in Atlanta in August.
Session says the master class is designed to elevate, empower and equip attendees for the next level of success. She believes that the secret sauce to her success has been becoming her true, authentic self in her career, business and relationships.
“The information I share in this class is exactly the formula I used to go from making $35,000 to more than $240,000 annually,” Session said. “I believe my triumphant story is proof that anyone can use their adversities as fuel rather than excuses to reach their full potential.”
During the event, Session plans to give women around the world a blueprint to owning their personal power and embracing their self-worth. Guest speakers for the event include certified life coach and trainer Michelle Smith and employment law expert and adjunct professor at Fordham University, Natasha Bowman, J.D.
Collected clothing donations and a proportion of the proceeds from event sales will benefit Dress for Success, a non-profit organization that empowers women “to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools”, says its website.
About Tana M. Session:
Session is author of the best-seller, “Get Your Career Life in Order,” “Inside the Revolving Door,” and the newly-released “The Little Book of Motivation & Inspiration.” As a former human resources executive and certified life and career coach, Session is a leading expert on personal transformation as her own life journey of shocking adversities began as a foster care child in the 1970s in Harlem, N.Y., where she was born to unwed teenage parents. While being transitioned from the homes of her foster family to the homes of various biological family members, Tana suffered from physical, sexual and verbal abuse, rape, and homelessness that led to depression and suicidal thoughts. Adding to her pain, both of her biological parents died by the time she was 21 years old.
A few years later, a bitter divorce and the loss of custody of her son left Session feeling hopeless. In an effort to rebuild her life, she worked as an administrative assistant to a human resources executive at Ernst & Young and climbed the corporate ladder, triumphantly regaining custody of her son and going on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and an MBA within four years.
In 2015, Session resigned from her position of vice president of human resources to start TMS Business Solutions, a coaching, consulting and speaking firm. Her motivational speaking career has taken her around the globe to places such as Bangkok and Cuba.
Session currently lives in Pasadena, Calif., with her husband Hip Hop pioneer Dana Dane and her son, Brandon, a senior at California State University, Los Angeles.
