Cathi Tarbox's' Bio

I'm a passionate educator, entrepreneur, and lifelong learner with over 30 years of experience in corporate learning and development, specifically focusing on leadership. After a pivotal layoff, I took an entrepreneurial leap in 2018 to start my own business in digital marketing services.

As I navigated through the world of entrepreneurship, I quickly realized that my knowledge could serve a greater purpose. This led me to channel my passion for storytelling and NLP into crafting interactive workshops aimed at empowering fellow entrepreneurs to unlock the power of their words.

One of the defining chapters of my life was a 13-year adventure living and working in Australia, an experience that not only earned me dual citizenship but also honed my adaptability and broadened my global perspective. In contrast to the fast-paced world of business, I've taken two fulfilling career breaks to work as a nanny for young children, from infants to preschoolers, a testament to my profound love for kids and my cherished role as an auntie.

When I step away from work, I find solace and rejuvenation in long drives, nature walks, especially by water, with music being my constant companion. Throughout these transitions and personal journeys, my fascination with technology and automation has remained a constant, with a particular interest in AI technologies like ChatGPT.

With a heart rooted in education, a knack for effective communication, and an unyielding fascination with AI, I strive to guide other entrepreneurs. My goal is to instill confidence in their use of words, enable them to connect authentically with their audience, and aid them in unfolding their unique business narratives.
