For as long as I can remember, i've been a wanderer. A restless spirit if you will.
From place to place, job to job. I'd find myself wandering. Sometimes with company, but mostly alone. Either physically or mentally, i'd wander. Many times, i'd long for anchoring and there'd be times when I actually attained it, only to look around and it was gone again. But, as I moved through this earthly experience, I found that when I empowered others, it placed me squarely in my place of purpose. Empowering, educating and serving others, I realized, was my calling.
My name is Tedra Chaney, a servant leader to three beautiful daughters, and sixty-eight students and counting.
I've been an entrepreneur for as long as I can remember. Before I really knew what the word even meant, I boldly proclaimed during a Fifth grade career fair that i'd become one as an adult. Talk about speaking things into existence huh?
As a young girl, I made and sold artwork produced by my art club which I was the sole member of, lol! And a whole host of other entrepreneurial things.
Since that time, i've served as a New Orleans Police Officer, owner of soap making company and two wildly popular Day Spas.
Currently though, I'm your Empowerment Start Up Specialist, the Massage Therapy Program Chair at Blue Cliff College, owner of Spa Start Academy, Lagniappe Lifestyle Brands which include Lagniappe Vegan, Lagniappe Thrift & Lagniappe Wellness, and finally, a Black Bodyworkers Association Board Member. Whew that was mouthful, but also a pleasure.
I look forward to serving you.
