A little about me…

Seattle is my home.

I’m the mother of one beautiful little girl named Kalina.

(Don’t let the photos deceive you; I’ve done my fair share of carrying my child surfboard style out of the store while sporting a messy bun and bags under my eyes from sleepless nights.) 

I love hiking, anything Disney, and traveling. 

 

Now, let’s get personal

My name is Taya Rose. I’m an entrepreneur, philanthropist and Mindset Coach.

Coming from a rough childhood, I carried an unhealthy relationship with myself, my body and my life in to my early adulthood, where I unconsciously repeated much of my past. It wasn’t until one day; I made the decision to change my life forever. 

I began to passionately study habit change, self-improvement, neuroscience, psychology, nutrition, fitness and much more. This turned in to years of auditing college courses, taking online classes, gaining certifications and reading countless books.

After achieving AMAZING results in my own life and physical, mental and emotional health, I became obsessed with the question, “What is the key difference between those who spin in endless circles living unfulfilling lives, verses those ACTUALLY change their lives for the better- permanently?

My key takeaway-

MINDSET.

IS.

EVERYTHING.

It became my mission to show others what was possible for them and use this knowledge for something outside of myself. That’s when I decided on becoming a dually certified Life & Health Coach. Or as I call it, a Mindset Coach

My message to you is that you are truly more powerful, wonderful and capable than you give yourself credit for. You don’t have to repeat the past. You don’t have to half-ass live your life. You don’t have to stuff down your talents and gifts, or settle for not feeling your best.

My mission is to light the way for others to bridge the gap between whom they are now and who they want to be.

You got this, keep going and believe in yourself! I believe in you.

Jake Zweig – Navy SEAL and Football

Jake Zweig Navy SEAL and Football

Jake Zweig is my guest on today’s podcast. Jake is an ex-Navy SEAL and D1 Football Coach. This episode is a two part episode. Part 1 gives us background of Jake and his mindset. Part 2 we talk about his time traveling internationally while he was a Navy SEAL. He speaks about his time working on the television shows and I also ask Jake how he prepares his student/athletes to schedule their time while playing football at the University of Illinois. His response is one for every coach on most levels.

Jake is man who has accomplished a tremendous amount in a short time and is just now hitting his prime. Jake attended the U.S. Naval Academy where he played football and wrestled. He graduated as a commissioned officer receiving his degree in computer science.

“My smart phone probably makes me 40% more efficient”

He served for two years before reporting for Navy SEAL training where he was named the SEAL class leader. Following his SEAL training, Jake reported to SEAL Team 8 in Little Creek, VA and attained the rank of Lieutenant.

He then went on to earn his MBA from the University of Michigan.

Jake began his coaching career in 2005 when he joined the University of Maryland staff as a graduate assistant working with the Terrapin wide receivers. He has since worked as an assistant coach at several colleges and is now working at the University of Illinois as their Special Teams Analyst.

His off the clock activities keep him equally busy. He co-hosted the Discovery Channel series called “Dude You’re Screwed” and competed on History Channels show “Top Shot” against law enforcement officers, military snipers and professional shooters. He still goes scuba diving and parachutes to raise awareness for veteran’s charities and just for fun.

Darci Smith – from Athlete to Career

Today’s podcast is with Darci Smith. Darci was a college athlete playing soccer at South Carolina State. She now helps college athletes prepare for life after college as a career coach.

“One of our conference games, we drove a team bus from South Carolina to Utah, which took us away from school for quite some time”

College athletes compete at a high level for their schools but are sometimes unable to take heavy workloads or take on internship opportunities due to their demanding athletic schedules. Some feel inadequate entering the job market after graduation. The company Darci works for, Athletes to Careers, helps these athletes with their resumes, interview skills and reminds them that what made them successful in sports are the same characteristics that many companies are looking for. Darci travels to colleges thru out California meeting coaches and athletes to help them. A young millennial woman working hard, traveling the roads in Southern California trying to help others with their careers is inspiring.
