Tea + Purpose with Coach T & Carla Blumenthal

Carla Blumenthal


What’s Tea + Purpose?

I’m glad you asked.

To learn more, there’s someone I want you to meet. Carla Blumenthal is the founder of Tea + Purpose and one of my newest, nearest, and dearest soul sisters who gets it. She is someone who understands that true transformation and growth as a leader of ourselves, can only happen in a safe space, where we’re willing to show up as our most authentic self and begin to ask and answer life’s questions. The questions that get us clearer on: who we are, what we really want as well as what makes us more alive and more aligned. Tea + Purpose was created to satisfy that craving you get in your belly when you are hungry for the next level of your life and seeking that spark that happens when empathetic and amazing women start talking about all that good stuff. While Carla won’t be joining us at our local Orlando Tea + Purpose event (she’s rockin’ Teas all over New York), you can meet her right now as today, this amazing woman graces the airwaves of the let’s talk legacy show to reveal

The Best Advice I Received this Year


Have you ever attended an event where there was a keynote speaker who said something that made you feel as if you were the only person in the room and that person was ministering directly to you and only you? Well that happened to me a couple weeks ago while attending a half-day leadership conference at my MBA Alma Mater (Rollins College). It was a simulcast with leadership authority John C. Maxwell who was teaching some of the principles in his latest book, “Good Leaders Ask Great Questions.”

Here’s the thing…I’ve understood the power of questions for quite some time, it was Dr. Rick who taught me that we lead with questions, not answers. And Tony Robbins who affirmed something along the lines of the quality of our life being directly related to the quality of the questions that we ask. Not just of others, but more importantly of ourselves. Translation: ask crappy questions of yourself and get crappy results – sorry couldn’t sugar coat that one :-)

So what was it that Mr. Maxwell said that had me sit up straight-er in my seat and really and truly ponder this statement as the best advice I’ve received in 2014.

Maxwell simply said…

“You’re one question away from an answer that will change your life.”

That was it.

I couldn’t believe it!

Just one question.

Only one question away from and answer that would change my life forever. Talk about powerful.

He then went on to say that questions actually unlock doors that otherwise would remain closed; and the greatest doors of opportunity are always locked. I’ll repeat that…the greatest doors of opportunity are always locked. And the only way to unlock these doors is to use the key of a great question.

It’s Really Happening! Podcast Launch Next Monday


Last Saturday, at the annual Florida Bloggers Conference, I had the privilege of hearing Pat Williams share his 10 foundational principles to living a fulfilling life. While all 10 of the principles resonated with me, his third principle: “Be specific in goal setting,” was incredibly timely and hit home on a personal level. With the launch of the “Let’s Talk Legacy” podcast (one of my short-term goals that I am sooooo incredibly excited about) debuting on Monday, September 30th — I figured it was time to go deep and let you in behind the curtain of Her Life, Her Legacy and well…me.

Theresa: (takes a deep breath and then exhales)

You ready?

Last December I set a big bold goal for myself for 2013. You know…the kind of goal that scares you a bit more than it excites you, but you go after it anyway. Determined to live a life of passion and purpose while doing work that matters, I embarked upon my personal hero’s journey. When I declared my goal, I did as the experts tell you to do and I put it in writing. In fact, my goal, “To become a full-time (paid) transformational leader (author, speaker and coach) by December 31st 2013,” is still written in dry-erase marker on the full-length mirror affixed to my bathroom door. This simple sentence serves as a continual reminder of what I am working diligently, patiently and persistently toward this year.

WARNING: this post is NOT about where I am in the process of realizing my big bold goal for 2013, this post is about you. All about you.

Did you set a goal or for 2013? Perhaps a New Year’s Resolution? What are you trying to accomplish this year and where are you in the process? Are you crushing it? Or did you fall off the wagon?

Are you living your legacy?

Lots of questions – I know. And probably quite irritating and/or overwhelming; especially, if you’re feeling lost in life, unfulfilled at work, or unsure of what you really want. If you are, do not worry, I can help you with that. I’ve been there before, and that’s a dark but necessary place many of us have to visit in order to find our own individual purpose and path.

But there’s great news!

It’s possible.

It’s possible for you to be, do, and have whatever you can dream. Seriously…it is.

How do I know it’s possible? Because I’ve seen my dreams (specific goals) begin to unfold before my eyes on what feels like a daily basis. But I didn’t create the Her Life, Her legacy community to just share my journey. This is much bigger than that. Like I said…this is about you. Having a place where you can cast your dreams out into the universe and then have all of the support and resources you need to inspire you to take action and help you live your legacy.

This is about your life.

This is about your legacy.


I told you it’s possible that you can live your dream; and not only have I experienced this, but so have each of the fantastic guests I’m interviewing for the “Let’s Talk Legacy” podcast. Incredible women like, Pam SlimVasavi KumarLauryn BallesterosDawn Delavallade and Natalie Currie just to name a few. I’m telling you. These women are amazing. In fact, all of the Let’s Talk Legacy guests are remarkable women who are living on purpose, and doing work that matters. They have each carved out 30 minutes of their time: to inspire women around the world to take ACTION towards living a life of passion and purpose — and to ultimately leave their legacy.

Oh, you want some of that action?

Then sign up here to be notified when the podcast is available for download, andBONUS, if you share this post via social media (and register to be notified that the podcast is available here) I will send you a sneak preview (yup! a full episode) of the “Let’s Talk Legacy” podcast on Friday, September 27th, as well as all 10 of Pat William’s foundational principles for living an amazing and fulfilling life.

Are you ready to live your legacy?

Let’s do this!
