Have you ever struggled to communicate with your children? If you know kids, in-person conversations are just not happening. It can seem like we have so many more options available to us than at any other time in history, yet we also feel more disconnected than ever. Just because technology has provided us with more immediate access to our loved ones than ever before does not mean we are using the luxury wisely. And there is no better feeling than to let those we love know just how much we think of them and value their presence in our lives. There is no greater power than finding a direct and simple way to communicate knowledge, inspiration, gratitude, and love; using technology may be the key.

TEXT MESSAGES TO MY SONS BY TAMMY J COHEN
Available on Amazon

Over the past few years, I wanted to not only evolve but also change the way I interact with my sons. I wanted to be someone they wanted to hear from, that they would look forward to my messages. So, to find a more meaningful relationship with my sons, I reached out to them in a language they understand – texting! It is my true hope for anyone reading this book to become inspired with new ways to connect with your loved ones, whether it is children, siblings, extended family, or spouses.


The evidence is undeniable. Ever since I started this journey, my relationship with my sons has been enriched and those friends whom I have shared this passion project with reacted with encouragement and the desire to do this with their loved ones. For those who started doing this, the results have been wonderful.


Remember, the power lies within each of us. We just need to share it, one message at a time.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR TAMMY J COHEN

What inspired the creation of Women Beyond the Table, and how does it uniquely support women's exponential growth? 

It was during the pandemic, that I initiated personal growth, aspiring to join a network of relatable and trustworthy women entrepreneurs. Connectivity is vital in a healthy network since networking is all about connecting and where the members bond and form a community. At the same time, it is essential and empowering for women to be in a place of non-judgment and non-competitiveness where members can exchange business services and social capital can be leveraged in an atmosphere of support, positivity, encouragement, and trust. Women Beyond the Table (WBTT) highlights its members. Members can share a concept or idea personally or professionally with respect; in the WBTT network, a member can ask for assistance or help, and she knows that someone will have the answer. 


How does your Beyond the Table Podcast connect with audiences and share guests' stories and wisdom?

The Beyond the Table Podcast is where women openly share their journeys, challenges, failures, and successes. Guests speak honestly, offering encouragement to listeners facing similar struggles. The podcast inspires by emphasizing that challenges are shared experiences, fostering growth from failures into something better.


In consulting, how do you guide clients to connect with their mission, vision, and core values for strong brand development?
