We had the good fortune of connecting with Tabatha Strother and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tabatha, other than deciding to work for yourself, what else do you think played a pivotal role in your story?
Following God’s lead was and still is the single most decision that I have and ever will make that will bring me success.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
“Talking With Tabatha”, podcast host, author, and action advocate is part of who I am. What sets me apart from most is I am led by God and make no apologies. The unique approach that’s taken when I do things is to allow Holy Spirit to lead. The interviews are by design, as well as the fibromyalgia planner. Nothing I have achieved has been easy, but certainly worth it. I have overcome challenges, and setbacks through prayer, wise counsel, research, networking, and staying focused, Through all the challenges I’ve learned more about myself. I also learned to trust others when needed, delegation is not a bad thing, and betting on yourself is always winning.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Thank you for the opportunity to recognize the individuals on whose shoulders I stand, along with those that continue to pour into my life. My husband, Melvin Strother, is my rock! A sounding board, a shoulder to cry on, and at times my adviser. My parents, Larry and Luella McCree, my sister, who is a business owner herself, Lametria “MeMe” Jackson, and my children, always show support. They continuously encourage and pray for and with me. The “Broke to Profitable” group led by business coach and author Otescia Johnson taught me how to believe in the God-given gifts that I have been entrusted with. This program provided real-world opportunities, and the collaborations have developed into partnerships. My ministry and business partners, are Millie McCullough, Sherry Jones, and April D. Metzler.
