Who is this Chic, Care, and WHY do you want to learn from her?

You can visit her fancy Bio, by clicking here

But to brass tax it for you, Care has creatively navigated the Hospitality Industry, working with major corporations, growing multi-million dollar Mom and Pop businesses for 20 years. Until starting her own businesses Sterling Weddings + Events and Sterling Creative 13 years ago. 


Although, she made it all look easy, on the inside she needed to actively step aside and decide to make a few lifestyle changes.

Five years later, countless specialists, conferences, coaches, workshops and with the help of incredible people in her community. She came out ahead, learning to love the businesses she had created, accept the losses, and by changing up a few key systems in her business she had the freedom to dedicate more of her time to her Husband and Son.

Wedding and Event Workshop, Tanya Wheeless, Happy Grace

As a former practicing attorney, CEO, and senior executive in the NBA, Tanya battled her own stress demons for years. Even though she was doing a pretty good job of keeping all the balls in the air, underneath she was overwhelmed, anxious and on edge. 


So she made some pretty drastic changes to find the road to true bliss. Her journey lasted several years and cost thousands of dollars.

After discovering the secrets to happiness, she developed a coaching method she's been using with high-paying clients around the country to transform their busy lives for the better.

The GLOW Method™ is the foundation for all Happy Grace products as a way to offer affordable, high value self-care options to women who want to feel balanced, calm and happy every single day.


Tanya has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Rolling Stone Magazine, and Fortune, and she was named to the Phoenix Business Journal’s “40 Under 40.” She was also recognized by Arizona Woman Magazine as one of “Twenty Women Who Will Change the Way We Work, Live and Play by the Year 2020.”
