For centuries, women of all cultures have been the backbone of our families and communities, not taking anything away from men however if it weren’t for some great woman in our lives, most of us wouldn’t amount to *ish. We tend to forget that, unfortunately. What, in this writer’s opinion, is the biggest travesty is that when men forget, they allow women to forget or negate their worth somehow and it becomes a societal issue. We already have babies raising babies and so the skills and confidence of previous generations are becoming less and less.
There are a growing number of aware women who are leading the charge for other women to reclaim their confidence, self-esteem, and self-respect. Fighting the chains and images of institutionalized sexism, Tana M. Session, is a powerful voice of experience whose programs offer key tools and resources for women to come from backstage to center stage and claim their due. It’s the type of info I want my pre-teen daughter to have…don’t hide in the shadows.
Author of the Amazon best-seller, Get Your Career Life in Order, travels the world, helping to bolster the efforts of women navigating the maze of business, entertainment and just life in general.
Ahead of her May 19th, Master Class event in New York City, The Hype Magazine got the busy coach to sit with us and weigh in on a few things. Her successful mentoring program wasn’t all we got out of her!
Tana is also the wife of Hip Hop icon Dana Dane and their relationship podcast is growing by leaps and bounds. Both Tana Tane as she’s tagged on the show, and Dana made their marks in life well before they met and their podcast Dana Says / Tana Says is an amazing blend of experience from different perspectives and perceptions.
Tana is also the creator of a reality series, The Women Behind the Legends of Hip Hip. It’s a look behind the scenes with the women who play an important role in the daily lives of superstars. Don’t get it twisted though, these women have their own minds and accomplishments…you’ll see…stay tuned!
Dig the shirt and ponder pon it!

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 and 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 $250,000 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, Tana 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, Manhattan College, Natasha Bowman, JD.
About Tana M. Session:
Session is author of the Amazon 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 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. Both 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 three years.
In 2016, 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, including Bangkok and Cuba.
