City you live in: Scottsdale

A typical day in my life includes…

wake up, meditation, workout, get ready, head into my office in Scottsdale, meet with my teams, emails, calls, filming, content, content, content, time with clients, coaching, head home to my fur babes, cook dinner, unwind and head off to bed!

I was born…

May 27th, Gemini baby over here!

My favorite thing about Arizona…

PALM TREES! I’m an Oregon girl so living in AZ feels like a constant vacation. I love the people, the climate and the energy!

I’m listening to…

a podcast or audio book always! Currently listening to Ed Mylett’s podcast.

My family…

is everyone I’ve ever come in contact with who shares even an ounce of my same fire, passion and drive for making the world better, together! I believe that its not just blood that makes a family, but love, light and passion!

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Mark Cuban or Jeff Bezos – this was actually a hard question! I am constantly looking to learn, and grow. Love surrounding myself with those who have so much wisdom and knowledge to share!

One thing I cannot live without…

Instagram! It’s the biggest resource in my business. But offline, I can’t live without a kombucha and sriracha tofu from Trader Joes!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

on the SWAT team or the President!

I’m inspired by…

Scott Oldford – he’s built incredible businesses, with such heart and while maintaining such an incredible composure, relationship and character. We share the same excitement with helping other entrepreneurs grow and he’s a huge inspiration to me!

The one person who motivates me is…

truly, my future self. Not to sound vain, but one of my #1 motivators is the exponential potential that I have to create the life that I want for myself, and for those who look to me for guidance.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

homelessness. I would love to give homeless people who are genuinely trying to just catch a break the opportunity to have hope, have someone on their side, have someone lift them up and give them an opportunity to work, live, and provide a life for themselves. I understand that sometimes poor decisions lead them to where they are, but I’ve also met some incredible homeless people who just drew the short end of the stick one too many times and need help. It’s okay to need help, and thats something I would love to help reduce, but not as a free handout, as an opportunity to just feel like someone cares enough to give them a chance.

The perfect day would be…

hmm…waking up, toes in the sand, or out on a boat (but w/ flawless cell service + wifi) lots of coffee, ice cold rose, little bit of business (nothing makes me happier than closing a good deal), coaching my 1:1 clients, little bit of shopping, some sun on my skin… 🙂

My first job was…

washing dishes in a Chinese restaurant at 14. I was paid cash under the table, and loved every minute of being in a fast paced environment, despite having NO clue what was being said at any given moment.

My favorite escape…

a great yoga, spin or barre class – followed by an overpriced green juice! (so cliche, I know)

My life…

can be exactly what I want it to be! I am fueled by the opportunity that awaits. I started to realize that I get to make the decisions, I get to control the outcome (or how I react to it rather) and that all I need is my passion, confidence and compassion to really make my mark…the sky is the limit!

I’m currently working on…

an upcoming PODCAST LAUNCH! I’ve been asked consistently for the past year when this was coming and I am so excited to finally have another platform to serve, educate and motivate young entrepreneurs!

Always…

thinking up new, crazy ideas…and always game for a good in depth biz convo!

Never…

live your life at the mercy of what someone else may or may not think of you. If you spend one moment wrapped in what they “might” think, you’re never going to write the pages of your own story.

Favorite Quote…

“Start from where you are with what you have, and believe that the future can be whatever you want as long as you’re willing to work for it.”

Biggest Dream…

I’m going to have a TV show on Bravo and top 100 business podcast.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

nail biters, lack of compassion and people that waste my time or just don’t have a concept of others commitments!

More about Tessabella…

I have a passion for coaching, and helping others achieve the best version of life. I run a growing real estate company with my boyfriend, a digital marketing agency and luxury beauty brand. In my spare time (haha) I work with 1:1 clients, helping marketers, realtors and small business owners network and build their business in a unique, structured way to achieve maximum success and sustainability.
