We had the good fortune of connecting with Tawnya Cline and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tawnya, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?
I believe that work life balance is extremely crucial to my success. It has absolutely changed and will continue to do so. Learning to pivot has taught me so much with my brands. This past year was full of pivots and balance! Making time to first take care of me so that I can better serve others can not take a back seat. Then spouse and family balance is next. When you are pushing hard to reach new levels and do powerful things this can eat up a lot of time, and family must feel important. There have been time’s I was able to include them all in my goals and allow them to participate so they feel valued. I included them in my vision boards and timelines so they knew what were moving towards. They would make vision boards of their own as well. Balance is different now with the children becoming adults so the balance is readjusted as empty nesters! This has been fun, and also imperative to not lose sight of work balance. We are on the same page with goals and not afraid to work. Now my balance for “me time” takes place at 4am when hubby is still sleeping. Then we balance our morning together, have a full work day and then dinner together with no television or phones. It is some of my favorite time to discuss the day. We take a yearly trip to discuss our year, celebrate and plan what’s next! We also continue blocking out times for dates often! So my advice is to remain open to pivot at anytime! Life is full of surprises, be open to embrace them all!Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My life wasn’t easy. Everything worth anything takes time. It’s a marathon not a sprint. One thing I did have was have value and confidence in myself to become the best human I could possibly be. Life is teaching lessons daily. Be open to be a student….always! I started adult life as a single Mom. I now have two beautiful adult children and I wouldn’t change it for the world. One has blessed me with my first Grandson, Oliver who is the love of my life! I never went to college, but have never been afraid of work, I work on myself daily every morning. I feel the brain is always learning and the more people we are connected with the more we must grow ourselves. We are all different and unique and that is what makes us all special. With hard work, surrounding myself with others who lift me up, I am now married to my soul mate, best friend and business partner, Vince. I have been able to open multiple business. I own a salon Indulgence Head 2 Toe for over twenty years. I own a mobile tanning business “Bronzing Head Toe for over seven years and I own a Nutrition Hub, Nutrition Head 2 Toe for nine years now. This is something I am most proud of. We have helped thousands become better versions of themselves through nutrition and fitness. We do full life health coaching, offer delicious smoothies, and daily FREE fitness. It is so empowering and inspiring to see so many transformations! I have the pleasure of teaching many of these classes, as well took on my own transformation and become a Bikini Pro with over thirty four titles! I went on to build a competition team “Smoothies and Blenderz” globally and have been a part of impacting thousands. There is nothing better than going to bed feeling like you have made a difference for others! Through all of this fun I was able to create my own clothing line called Tawnya Cline Collection. We specialize in making ladies feel beautiful in their own skin with Scrunch Butt Shorts, leggings And Sports Bras…these are made in the USA! If I could say anything to others it is to know with a decision, and hard work ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. We are responsible for our own life! When you have a vision, let nothing get in your way! Obstacles will always occur and there will always be lessons!!! Be open to learn! You decide your own destiny!Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
So I lead by example and for me my life is AMAZING. It may be different then what you may think is fun. I would start it with a delicious homemade healthy breakfast made by me, while I have some Personal Developement, playing. (Most likely, Rachel Hollis or Ed Mylett) Then we will head to a hike of their ability to see the beautiful outdoors! We will go by Nutrition Head 2 Toe to get a post workout smoothie and some great conversation! I will have healthy eats and treats readily available. We can finalize the evening with dinner at a steakhouse if they prefer, SUSHI, or I would be happy to do a special air fryer dinner. We have a blast with sober living and enjoy the outdoors.Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Shoutout to my husband for the continued belief in me! Shout out to those who told me I couldn’t; they honestly fueled my fire to become one powerful BOSS BABE! Shout out to Jesse Holland, my movement coach, Victor and Diane Sabino for their mentoring me as I grew into a business owner from a receptionist in their salon; Shout out to my community at Nutrition Head 2 Toe and my Competition team “Smoothies and Blenderz,” and Jennifer Micheli for her mentor ship over the years!
