What I loved About This Interview
I am so grateful for Tambra sharing her incredible story with us! Throughout her story is woven life-changing principles about fear, gratitude, surrendering & faith.
Tambra shared her experience with being diagnosed with the challenging condition of Guillain Barre and described that she was completely paralyzed and had difficulty breathing. When she described that her heart stopped beating and that she came back to life through a miracle and I was literally on the edge of my seat!
I lost my father when I was a teenager and so I have always been on a quest for answers about what happens to us when we die, and what the purpose of this life is. I am so grateful for this conversation that illuminated so many answers to those questions. You are going to love hearing her amazing story!

These are questions that I asked Tambra outside our interview. You are going to love her answers!
What is 1 thing you believe every woman entrepreneur should know?
This is more for every woman in general, but- You have worth. We are each a daughter of God. Your value isn’t predicated on what others think, say, do or feel. It is impossible in life to please everyone so haters aren’t yours to handle.
When is a time in your life when you went through a challenge or felt like giving up? How did you overcome this? What did you learn from it?
My biggest challenge in life has definitely been going through Guillain Barre this year. When you see someone go through physical challenges, most of us feel so much empathy due to the physical limitations that they are experiencing but we never think that emotional side effects come with it. They do. And they last a very long time. I think one of the hardest parts about going through this was the emotional aftermath of it all. The flashbacks when you see a hospital, or someone in a wheelchair. it all rushes back. You find yourself seeing life in a whole new way. I remember sitting down at thanksgiving dinner fighting tears of gratitude like I never had before. I looked at my husband and children and couldn’t help but think, “what would they be going through right now if I didn’t survive that?” those thoughts come often and it brings a whole new aspect of gratitude to my life.
What is one thing that you wish someone told you that you had to learn the hard way?
YOU have the divine ability to seek direct revelation for your OWN life and You’ll NEVER please everyone. I’m a pleaser by nature. I was an extremely obedient child growing up (to a fault). I never asked why; I never tried to learn the reason for rules or boundaries. I just did what I was told to do and honestly, looking back, it was an extremely unhealthy trait of mine. Ultimately you have to make choices in your life that you feel are right. Learning how to pray and receive answers for yourself opposed to doing what you’re told to. I remember when I was 17 in high school and I had a stepmother who refused to let me take my ACT and SAT tests for college. I had outstanding grades and wanted to go to BYU. She told me that she was a waitress and that’s what I would be too. I was NOT going to college. I never told my parents or grandparents about that because I had been taught to obey- but never taught that it’s ok NOT to. If I would have told my father, mother, or grandparents about those remarks, they would have told me the opposite and helped me apply, schedule my tests, and figure out financial aid for school. I NEVER should have obeyed those abusive orders from her, but I did. I accepted it as my fate and moved on. We have to learn to listen to our own hearts and minds and block out the noise that comes in so many variations of comments and opinions from others.
What is one of the biggest challenges you have faced with balancing work, family, and taking care of yourself? What did you learn from this challenge?
My biggest challenges in balancing life? Part of me thinks that this is one of the reasons I needed to go through what I did this year. I needed to set my priorities straight. My kids and husband are #1. Not work. If I got a call or text from someone, I would take it. I had to set “office hours” so to speak and put work on the back burner when we’re home having dinner and enjoying each other. I didn’t do that very well. I worked and worked and worked on anything and everything because I LOVE to work. I LOVE IT! But, I love my family more and I needed to show them that in my actions, not just in my words.
