In addition, Takisha got involved with starting her own coaching business because of her experience at Centra Hospital where she was a phlebotomist able to empower people. People would come to her to get their blood drawn, people warmed up to her, communicated with her, and felt like they could trust her. She could piece together their life struggles in 15-20 minutes. They would come back and say her advice worked and thanked her. She received a lot of hugs and notes, people left gifts, perfume, etc. Her friends, family members and co-workers also felt a sense of peace and calmness from sharing personal stories and getting advice from Takisha that proved to work. This is when she knew it was her calling, she loves to see people happy, thriving, empowered, and at peace. Takisha finds balance in work and indulging in the joys of life while bringing happiness to others. Takisha’s moto is “If its not bringing you happiness, you need to let it go”.
