Hi, I'm Tonya Telesco

We've seen a lot of changes in our world over the last decade but when it comes to what's important in this life - one factor remains the same. People are hungry to know they have made a difference - that their lives do matter. 








After spending years chasing the things, I thought would bring me success and joy, I found myself at a crossroad. Not only was I building someone else's dream because I didn't have my own, I felt flat stuck.


Everything looked "great" on the outside but there was a nagging tug-a-war in my soul I could not shake. I knew there was more. Unfortunately, I kept going around the same mountains because I was clueless how to take ownership of my own potential, much less my purpose.

"You were not born
to be good.
You are here to be great."

Today, everything has changed! I'm telling you absolutely nothing compares to living in the clarity and confidence of your God-given calling and purpose.

"Your never too young to get a vision for your life and your never too old to get a better one."


A multitude of people have poured into my journey and it's an honor to be a catalyst of transformation for others. I love equipping people with the strategies and tools to build intentional lives and relationships. I love to see people win!
