We had the good fortune of connecting with Tiffany Mangum and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tiffany, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind my success and the success of my brand is both patience and grace. Patience and grace has played such a major part in the growth of who I am as an individual, to what I love and have a passion for which is yoga and meditation and how its executed by way of creating accessibility and different avenues of people to access their own inner healing‘s with the resources and tools that I share. You can have everything that you want and desire but if you don’t have the patience to wait to see how things unfold and the grace and understanding for yourself and for people then success is very hard to maintain. Success is not all measurable.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am a Yoga and Meditation coach, a wellness professional Setting goals and intentions to make Mindful movements, meditation, and self-love practices accessible. My business is unique in that I bring compassion, grace, and patience to every person, organization, and group that I serve. Everyone is different and acknowledging the difference as being unique, brave, and wonderful is how the relationship to mindfulness is built and personal to each individual it serves. The most challenging part was Thinking that I need it to be in a studio to have access to people and practice. Once I started reflecting on what it look like for me to bring Mindfulness and Yoga into community, nonprofit organizations, small groups, I was convinced that this route would be best, would fulfill my passion and my purpose. I applied for my DBA, I created partnerships and friendships,I manifested the business to continue to grow. I learned so many lessons along the way again patience and grace but also confidence and persistence to continue to invite yourself to meetings and groups to speak out loud and to be very observant and to see who is not concerned about their health and wellness of themselves or their organizations or their clients and create the space where are you can come in and show how valuable it is.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I will take my friends to Chicago and we would start out with brunch at a cute place called Batter N Berries where there is the best flight of French toast, cheesy sweet potato hashbrowns, And normally some type of stuffed salmon or lobster tail. After that we would go visit the Museum of contemporary Art, DuSable Museum, and the Art Institute. We will then walk around millennium park to enjoy the scenery. We would head over to Navy Pier, get on the infamous Ferris wheel and eat mountains of Garrett’s Popcorn “Chicago mix”. We will head back to the very chic hotel Thompson Chicago to lounge and order in dinner from Joy Yee Noodle : Pot stickers, Drunken Noodle, Spicy Orange tofu, and mango boba We look at the city lights from our amazing view and talk about the good things. If we are up for it, we will make our way to B.L.U.E.S. Club for some soulful music and conversation. We call it an evening with a meditative flow and a warm nightcap of ginger turmeric tea and honey. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to shout two past coworkers of mine who stamped my wellness journey with “always create the space YOU desire”. Cara, whom delivered the book to me The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz that helped me eliminate truly what no longer serves me both personally and professionally. It is a manual for me now, more than just a book. Rachel, who always offered such grounding ways to recenter and bring back focus that “You matter.” In a world where your peace can be shifted by the overwhelmingly need to be everything for everyone, these two planted seeds of courage, self-preservation, and finding calm.
