Want To Start A YouTube Channel + Share Your Message? JOIN ME OCT 17th


Hey DFW Sistas!

Since moving to Dallas, many have approached me about how to start a YouTube Channel or are just curious how I got started as a TV Host. So I began coaching aspiring talent and absolutely love helping others grow and step into their dream. After working in LA for nearly 16 years, there are so many tips and nuggets of show biz wisdom that I have to share. I also started my YouTube Channel by the seat of my pants and have learned so much by default along the way.

Check out my demo reel for a glimpse of the work I’ve done:

Do you want to be the next E! Entertainment host? 

Do you want to start sharing your own style or makeup tips on YouTube? 

Do you just want to hone your ability to give great business presentations and build your confidence? 

If this is a dream you wish to pursue- join me for an interactive workshop on October 17th. This will be the only workshop I offer this Fall so do not hesitate to register. We keep the group small so everyone has the chance to get up front and work lots.

Areas covered:

  • Fundamentals of hosting + host types (spokesperson, expert, interview, game show, sports, QVC, etc)
  • Your voice + your personality + your audience (very important for YouTubers)
  • Breaking down copy/ using bullet points
  • Workout with real audition copy from LA casting director’s
  • Interviewing & co-hosting techniques
  • Practice a panel like The View and more co-hosts like male/male & 3 women
  • Basic teleprompter

Take advantage of the early bird discount if you register by 12:00midnight on Wed, Oct 7th!


GOALS Vs. INTENTIONS: Who’s Ready For An Outstanding October?



September went by like a blink, right? It takes the entire month to shed the Summer, switch gears and get life back on schedule. By October, we’re getting into the new groove so it’s the perfect time to set intentions and goals for the Fall.  Starting today, we have exactly 3 months of 2015 left.  //Shake your head with me//  Does that stress you out or excite you? It’s a bit of both for me. Stressed because I feel the pressure to do more, be more and accomplish more by the end of the year.  Excited because- Well, hey…I lived through another year! I’ve grown more, learned more and surrendered more. (I hope!!) Plus, Mercury went retrograde mid-September which can make things go haywire and wonky, but it’s also a beautiful time to dust off dormant dreams and projects. Let’s focus on the latter.

As an avid goal and intention setter, I love the challenge of checking things off the list and feeling that sense of accomplishment. But, it’s also important to give ourselves some grace if everything doesn’t get checked off. If you have been part of SOS for a while, you know that I love setting goals and/or resolutions and intentions on the 1st of each month and not just at the new year. This gives me a chance to refocus every month by setting smaller monthly goals to help achieve the bigger yearly goals. Make sense? It’s like taking smaller bites you can digest instead of one big chunk that you end up spitting out because you can’t chew it.

What’s the difference between setting intentions and setting goals? 

An intention is something deeply personal for how you want to be, live, and show up in the world.  It’s a practice and a consistent aspiration to guide you toward balance in your life. To find peace in my heart.  To forgive and let love in.  To treat myself with more respect. To surrender and live fully in the present moment. To release anger instead of holding on to it.  By getting quiet and away from any distractions (kids, phone, computer, television) we are able to focus our mind on what our soul is needing most…RIGHT NOW.  You cannot do this wrong, but an intention is what comes to you in the present moment as opposed to a goal which is typically something we wish to achieve in the future. An intention could be in the form of a quote, a dedication, a prayer. I set my intentions while I’m praying because it’s important to me that I invite God into this practice and view it as being a co-creator of my plans/dreams/growth with Him. Bottom line- I need His help big time!

Also, because I am easily distracted (even if I’m sitting quietly away from distractions- because my mind is always cranking) I like to write out my monthly intentions and goals in my journal. Life is overall so distracting and as I get older and more forgetful, it’s vital for me to write things down! I keep it simple and place them in categories like personal development/spirit, helping others, career, relationships and health. To give you an idea, here’s an excerpt from my journal today:


GOAL: Keep reading “The Identity Bond: A Guide To Self-Awareness” by Dr. Melanie Mills  and attend her workshop. (I just paid for my spot at the workshop so that is one step closer to achieving that goal!)

INTENTION: To accept myself more fully. (I’ve been hard on myself lately for wanting to withdraw and cocoon. Why do we always try to change our true nature to please others and make ourself miserable? My introverted side needs this time away to refuel, but I fear disappointing others. I am learning more about this from Dr. Mel.)

Here are some thoughts to help you get started in creating an intention:

  • What matters most to you?
  • What would you like to build, create, or nurture in your life?
  • What would you like to let go of?
  • Who would you like to forgive in your life?
  • How do you feel when you are your happiest self?
  • What makes you proud?
  • What word(s) would you like to align yourself with?
  • What fears would you like to release?
  • What are you grateful for?

10 Intention Examples:

  1. Find balance
  2. Open your mind and heart
  3. Focus on peace
  4. Stay calm and steady
  5. Act with courage
  6. Embrace change
  7. Practice forgiveness
  8. Allow yourself to be vulnerable
  9. Connect with others
  10. Love Unconditionally

If you find if difficult to get started, use one of these if it resonates with you, but try to create something more personal for yourself. I would love to hear your thoughts on this! Like, comment and share if you found it inspiring.  I appreciate it!


Thank you for joining me on this journey to become our most happy, healthy, loving and fabulous self. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.

THE 5- MINUTE FACE LIFT: Tiff’s Latest Beauty SOS


Hello Gorgeous!

You know I love sharing the latest and greatest finds that help us look and feel our best. I’m excited to tell you about the new addition to my vanity! Have you seen this little gadget yet by NuFace I first heard about it on the Today Show with Kathy Lee & Hoda sometime in the summer. My interest was immediately peaked because I was approaching my 44th birthday in August and was starting to see the first signs of dreaded sagging- especially in the jowl area. GRRRR!

A birthday gift to myself this year was a new skincare regimen and a new health/wellness supplement and vitamin program. I’ve always taken fairly good care of myself, but I admit I was slacking on my skincare and buying cheap vitamins from wherever. Life gets busy and we put ourselves on the back burner. I needed to practice what I preach and desperately needed a beauty and health SOS! My birthday was the perfect time to give it to myself. I’ll tell you about my new supplements in a different post later. All I can say is I have more energy than I did when I was in my late 20’s. HOLLA!


Back to the gadget. The NuFACE Microcurrent Toning Device is known as the 5 minute Face-Lift and it really works! I’ve been using it for nearly 2 months and can see a difference in my jowl, the folds by my nose and eyelids are lifted. Can I just say how strange it is to start seeing your eyelids sag and your mascara gets all over your eyelids from your lashes rubbing?!? What the heck!  It’s easy to use and really only takes 5 minutes so it’s perfect for even the busiest gal. It’s also painless and you may only feel slight little tingles from the microcurrent. There is a setting to increase or decrease the microcurrents to your comfort level. The NuFACE device is clinically-tested to stimulate the skin to improve facial contour, skin tone, and wrinkle reduction across the jawline, cheek area and forehead.

Here’s a quick video of how it works:

I went to LA for my birthday and took it with me so my sister could try it. She’s a licensed esthetician and I knew she would give me an honest review after she tried it. Even she was amazed and saw instant results on her eyebrow and eyelid! After further research, we found that the microcurrents are like a “workout” for your face. Just like working out- our muscles atrophy when we stop. So, the recommended use for the NuFACE device is at least 5 times a week for the first 3 months then a few times a week for maintenance. Easy breezy. Safe and simple.

Amazon has this new Trinity model with FREE SERUM. Check it out here.


Feel free to ask me any questions. You know I only endorse and give positive reviews of products I believe in!

Be good to yourself today.

Love, Tiff

In honor of the first week of Fall lets talk about layering, rugs that is! In the cooler months we love to layer our clothes, leather jackets tossed over cashmere sweaters on top of tweed and over-the-knee boots, cardigans on top of sassy dresses paired over tights with booties and skinny jeans mixed with turtlenecks under fur vests – the layering options are endless when it comes to fashion so why should it not be endless inside the home?

We layer our beds with accent pillows and blankets. Toss cozy throws across our sofas. Stack layers of coffee table books in bookcases. But what about the floor?! Layering rugs is a trend that is here to stay! It adds instant interest to any room.
