Bridging the Gap Between Your Logical Mind and Advocate Heart
From busy professionals to start-up Founders to Inc 5000 CEOs, Tara Bradford serves her clients as a trusted confidante and advisor.
She started her career as a Registered Nurse caring for people who were in critical condition after devastating accidents. During her decade long career caring for these patients and their families she heard a lot of people's regrets. The most common regret was, "I wish I had spent more time with the people I care about the most." These stories of regret came from the ambitious attorney who was trying to make partner in the law firm, the ivy league graduate student studying to get her MBA while working a full-time career, and the breadwinning parent in a single income home, to name a few.
As a dedicated advocate and tireless problem solver, she realized she was helping people solve the "quantity of life" equation, but wondered if she was really improving the "quality of life" for her patients. Her heart pulled her to find a way to meet these people when they were thriving so she could teach them how to live more meaningful lives. After all, it wasn't exactly "lack of time" that was causing this regret, it was the question: "Does this person know how much I care about them and will I ever have the opportunity to make sure they know how I feel?"
She bridged that gap between quantity and quality of life when she discovered coaching and got her certifications in High Performance Coaching, Neurolinguistics, Hypnotherapy, Emotional Freedom Techniques, and TIME Techniques.
From there she realized she had a knack for bridging communication gaps as well. As a critical care nurse she was often the person who translated the medical jargon doctors were delivering to the patients and families into information that those patients and families could use to help them make informed decisions.
In her first year as a Leadership Coach, she was featured in the media every 2 weeks for 12 months. She then went on to get certified in Reputation Risk Management so she could help the public figures she works with design their reputations around their message. Since that time she has been a sought after publicity strategist to high profile business leaders who want to elevate their brand’s message and purpose, which is why she founded Rae Media Group, a boutique strategic marketing communications firm, in 2018.
While running Rae Media Group, Tara continues to work as a Certified Coach, Corporate Trainer, and International Keynote Speaker.
She helps individuals gain clarity on their goals and objectives, communicate confidently about themselves and their businesses, feel more understood in their professional relationships, and reach a global audience with their message so they can become Best Selling Authors, TEDx Speakers and, if we dream even bigger, Nobel Peace Price recipients.
She currently resides in New York City where she strives to connect with at least one person every day, even as an introvert.
Tara’s background is in nursing, so it’s no surprise that her approach to coaching is a nurturing one.”
