“You are meant to succeed in the work you love. Your desire will take you all the way.” — Tama J. Kieves
What if everything you thought you needed to do to succeed was actually standing in the way of your success?
Tama Kieves, Harvard-lawyer-turned-career-coach, has spent the last decade crossing the United States and Canada, speaking to tens of thousands of people and sharing her inspiring story of moving from a career that was killing her to a life that has uplifted her, chronicled in her first book, “This Time I Dance!: Creating the Work You Love.” She has mentored thousands of people who, with her help, have followed their passion, and now live their dream lives.
And now she takes us to the next step in our journey…
Within you is your purpose–your destiny–that will lead you to your greatest fulfillment, and your greatest success. What Kieves discovered in her own journey is that the way to success is an “inspired” path, not a linear one. She brings her mentoring ideas and actions together in her latest work, “Inspired and Unstoppable.” In this motivating book, Kieves teaches that it is only in unleashing this purpose that you can become truly happy and satisfied.
Through these teachings, she will help you move into your “brilliant power.” She shares the mental and emotional impact of this journey–the fears, doubts, and boogeymen that arise–and how to become an unstoppable warrior for your life’s work and desires. This book will help you stay connected to your desires and shift your innermost thinking. When you do, inspired actions will seem to fall directly out of the sky, and onto your plate. You will naturally outpace anything any expert could ever tell you. “You don’t need the steps, when you have the moves.”
Beautifully written, “Inspired & Unstoppable” also includes success stories from Tama’s life and the lives of others who have made their dreams their reality, as well as practices that will create positive momentum, and “Inspired Successisms”–delightful, quick bites of wisdom peppered throughout the book. It also includes guidelines on how to create your own “Inspired Success Circle”–a way of moving forward with the support of friends and loved ones.
Practical, empowering, inspirational, galvanizing–“Inspired & Unstoppable” is the touchstone to (finally) living your wildest dreams and greatest desires.

She is a nationally known lecturer and workshop leader on topics such as learning how to learn, learning styles, memory, time management, effective classroom techniques, and using technology in the classroom.

Carolyn’s Study Skills website (http://capone.mtsu.edu/studskl/) has been visited by more than a million people! When asked to describe her teaching style, Carolyn says: “I am first of all enthusiastic about learning how to learn. I get excited about learning and hopefully my students catch the spirit. My classes are a combination of lecture supported by many visuals and hands-on activities. Skills for being successful in college are learned by doing. So, once students understand a concept, my aim for them is to develop the skills by practice and make modification to the skills that will work for them. A student in my class can expect homework due every class period. My style may seem casual and somewhat laid back, but each class is carefully planned with goals and objectives in mind. I am extremely demanding but would like to think that I am patient. I try to make sure that everything we do in class is backed up on the website.”
