Taurea, pronounced like Maria with a T, is originally from Hampton Virginia where she was born and raised by 2 Military parents in the United States Air Force. She went on to graduate from the prestigious HBCU, Hampton University with a degree in computer science. Yes, she is a techie! However even though she is naturally an introvert, she always had a desire to be an entrepreneur. During her first ten years of Entrepreneurship, she failed miserably by trying more than 30 + business ventures. Taurea just never found anything that she truly loved until she ended up moving to Atlanta Georgia after the passing of her father from stage 4 lung cancer. She already lost her mother due to cirrhosis of the liver when she was 11 years old. When her father passed, she was at a point where both of her parents were gone at the age of 26 and she decided to live life to its fullest and stop giving up on these business ideas. She was blessed with another mother by the name of Veronica Terry who also helped in raising her so she makes sure to always give her honor and make her proud.
She then got into a home-based business in 2009 that changed her life completely. She was able to earn Six-Figures in less than 12 months in that company. In 12 months she then was forced to make a decision to move on to another company. After working extremely hard and traveling all over the nation and to a few countries, she also became a six-figure earner there as well. She was one of the highest paid women in the industry and a part of the top 1% earners in the home-based business industry worldwide. In her transition from the first company where she was selling weight loss products to the 2nd company where she was selling coffee, she also experienced challenges. Her house went into foreclosure and it seemed like all the hard work that she had put in was quickly crumbling beneath her feet. This was the reason for her transitioning to another company. Even though she was able to have incredible success in the second home based business, she always knew that this would not be her final place in business. In that 2nd company, she also experienced major challenges. From dealing with a heart break to losing family and friends from cancer to even losing many team members in her business, she fell into a great depression. At that point she started asking God what here next move would be if she was going to stay here on this earth.
She always knew that the home-based industry was just her starting place and it would be what would help teach her how to truly impact the lives of 10,000,000 men and women before she leaves this earth.
In 2014 she decided to start her own coaching business and walk away from the home-based business industry to help educate others in the industry as well as coaches and speakers. The name of her company is called Show Your Success, LLC and in 2018 she also created a sister company called Book Profits Club designed to help authors learn how to promote, profit and get their books to perform. It was definitely a challenge but she knew that she was up for it. With Show Your Success, LLC and Book Profits Club, her goal is to help speakers, coaches and those in the network marketing space learn how to build their business building multiple streams of income leveraging the RIGHT book.
In 2015 she went on a tour all across the East Coast to the Midwest doing workshops teaching people about writing books to grow their business. She has been able to impact more than 5,000 + people that are speakers, coaches and networkers to become what she likes to call “Certified in Authorpreneurship”. She has also written more than 15 + self-published books that have also allowed her to build a substantial income in the coaching business while at the same time helping others to also build amazing incomes.
She has been seen on Fox News, CBS News, ABC News, YahooFinance, Sheen Magazine, Successful Women Radio Show, IHeartRadio and more!
In 2019, Taurea also decided to start a nonprofit called Urban CEO Network. One thing that she really learned along her journey of entrepreneurship is that, yes there are resources out there but in many cases especially when you come from the urban community, a lot of those resources are overwhelming and confusing. Her mission with Urban CEO Network is to be able to establish a company that becomes the bridge between the urban community and success. Not just success in business but success in life, relationships, health and wellness, finances and more.
Taurea’s life mission is to impact the lives of 20,000,000 men and women in mind, body and soul. She is already on the path to making that happen and looking forward to the journey.
