I am Tonya L. White, DBA, CLC a mother, professor, entrepreneur, business owner, management and marketing consultant, life and career coach, mentor, inspirational speaker and author. While I may wear many hats, they all align with my mission of helping others find their way. If you don’t read any further know that I was put on this earth to inspire you, empower you and impact your life in a positive way. My purpose is to help you live your best life.
As the owner and founder of Exclusively You Coaching I am dedicated and committed to helping you find your purpose professionally and personally and live a fulfilled life. I have found no greater joy than helping others achieve their goals.
After spending approximately 13 years in hospitality management (a career that I loved for many years), I found myself getting burned out and needed to find a higher purpose. My search led me to Academia. Even though I had found some success in hospitality management, one of my mentors encouraged me to go back to school and finish my education.
Never say never….
Never in million years did I think that supposedly just going back to school to complete my bachelor’s degree would lead to another fulfilling career in academia and coaching.
From the moment I got a taste of higher learning I knew I had found my purpose. While over the last 15 years I have held various positions in higher learning from Professor to Associate Dean of Online Learning, my heart belongs to Coaching. As Director of Career Services for more than seven years; I found no greater joy than teaching career development, helping students with their resumes, putting on mock interview events and recruiting employers for our career fairs. I knew I had found another opportunity to share my experiences, gifts and talents, while coaching others to find their career paths.
As I’ve often shared with my students and clients there is nothing worse than waking up every morning going to a job you absolutely hate. While I have been blessed with wonderful mentors and people along the way to help me find opportunities that filled my passion, I have also been on the other end of being in a dead-end job and having no purpose.
As a career and leadership coach, I bring all of my many years of experiences in corporate America, business, leadership, entrepreneurship, marketing, and hospitality to help you find your purpose.
I want everyone to feel the joy that I feel every morning as I prepare for a new day of helping others find purpose again.
As a personal development coach I bring my relatable struggles and the empowering tools I have learned through my experience and education as a certified personal development and solution focused coach.
So what’s your passion? I am here to help you reach down deep and find your ideal life. The one that makes you spring out of bed looking forward to the day ahead. I am here to inspire your spirit, to encourage your heart and to empower you to live your best life.
I look forward to meeting you. Please feel free to leave a comment and share your stories of finding your passion or contact me and let me help you find your passion.
May God bless you in all of your endeavors. Never stop reaching for the moon, you might just land among the stars.
Wishing you much success,
