FROM ADVERSITY AND addiction TO personal greatness.

If you are an ambitious professional who is currently stuck - it's normal to feel frustrated, overwhelmed and alone. It doesn't have to remain this way.

Let me show you how to get back up again, change your life, and come back even stronger than before.

Hi, I’m Tanya unkovich

I’m happy you’re here— but I’m sorry you’re going through this painful experience right now. You likely never thought you’d need the kind of help I offer, but I want you to know you’re in the right place.

As a motivational speaker, published author, and executive coach, I’ve helped and spoken to thousands of people on how to overcome adversity, addictions, and master resilience, no matter what they have endured in their lives. 

This time in your life, doesn’t have to be devastating. No matter what you are going through, or are struggling to move beyond, you CAN rise up and have meaning and purpose again. You CAN regain your personal certainty and have clarity and direction. You CAN be excited about life again.

I know, because I suffered many adversities, including my own personal struggles with food issues, and then a major loss that shattered my world to pieces and took me on an Unplanned Journey. In the end, I found a way to reach the other side, and stronger than before.

The Art of Overcoming Adversity

From Grief to Greatness

A Triumph In Life And Death

Unplanned Journey: A Triumph In Life And Death is a book for grieving people, their loved ones, and everyone wanting to find purpose and meaning when there seems to be none.

Tanya Unkovich. Unplanned Journey Book
“This is one of the most moving and courageous stories I have ever read. The experience of watching the love of your life die must be extraordinarily harrowing. The fact that both Tanya and her husband documented what they were going through during his last days must surely be the staunchest gift to anyone else facing the same experience. This is a love story beyond parallel.”

Ann Andrews
Author, CSP

“I couldn’t put it down. This book is as real and raw as they come. Tanya bares all and takes you on her very personal journey through loss, darkness, and depression and shares how she crawled back into the light. Truly a celebration in the resilience of the human spirit, a lesson we can all learn from.”
