Christina: What is your SwagHer? What makes Tanisha, Tanisha?

Tanisha: I am a survivor of many things, and that is where my strength comes from.  I don’t believe in lying around and feeling sorry for myself, I believe in getting back up and living life to the fullest because I have experienced too much loss and pain throughout my life. What makes Tanisha, Tanisha is my children, my strength, and how I love others. I am a storyteller, and I use that gift in my publishing company. I love listening to my clients’ stories and assisting them with sharing their gifts and stories with the world.

Christina: What inspired you to use travel as a holistic approach to healing after the unexpected loss of your husband? 

Tanisha: After the loss of my husband, the world felt hollow.  I remember saying to myself, “If anything happens to me, I want my children to say mommy took us everywhere.”  Travel became my lifeline, a holistic embrace of experience that painted life anew. It wasn’t just about visiting breathtaking landscapes or savoring exotic flavors; it was about forging memories with my children. Instead of being on depression medication, I found peace and serenity throughout my travels.  To be able to experience different cultures, foods, and beautiful places gave me a peace of mind and led me on my healing journey.

Christina: Could you share more about your YouTube travel show “Tanisha’s Traveling Bag” and your approach to encouraging followers to “Live Life and Travel”? 

Tanisha: From epic staycations to lavish getaways, I use my YouTube show, Tanisha’s Traveling Bag, to empower others to explore the world, one affordable adventure at a time. I showcase myself as well as my friends and family as we travel to different places and just have fun.  I love to explore and create different adventures, so you will see that in the show, as well as informative traveling information. Stay tuned for upcoming episodes featuring hidden gems, budget-friendly vacations, activities to do, and exclusive recommendations to make your travel dreams a reality!

Christina: In 2023, you created Tanisha’s Traveling Buddies. What is this exclusive travel club, and how does it contribute to igniting a passion for exploration among its members? Tanisha: Solo travel isn’t my cup of tea, but I will do it if necessary. I crave the joy of exploration with others, building shared memories, and forging friendships under new skies. So, I launched my travel group, Tanisha’s Traveling Buddies – a vibrant community where wanderlust meets adventure, have fun, discover new things, and have unforgettable moments.

Christina: As the author of several travel guides, what are some tips you can give others who are looking to begin traveling the world? 

Tanisha: Honestly, just do it!!  The money will return, but your time won’t.  Do your research on the location that you wish to visit, or hire a travel agent who can point you in the right direction, give you recommendations, and plan your entire trip.

Christina: Is there anything else you would like to share?
