Tara Sage Steeves, M.A., Create Your Life! Founder, Dream Acceleration™ Master Coach
A bit of Tara’s personal story, in her own words: “I know the beauty of dreaming and am deeply devoted to making the dream realization process accessible to all those who wish to access it. I also know what it means to feel stuck, overwhelmed and constrained by circumstances. My life has certainly not always been dreamy and my path has not always been clear. A few years back, I was in a job I dreaded, buried in debt, living in a basement apartment, felt isolated and alone, and was working through painful family dynamics that ran deep. I have taken several turns down roads that I’ve backed out of soon after, to including being a 3-time drop out! (Yep. I am a massage therapy school drop-out, an acupuncture school drop out, and an MBA drop-out.) It was a windy, twisty-turny road to where I am now.
From my mistakes and pain I found how to go from all of this, to realizing a host of my own dreams, (this business included) and, oh, I’m just getting started… “
An international coach, speaker, twice-published author, and holistic leader, Tara believes that dreams are the voice of our soul, and listening is our gift to the world. She is devoted to helping driven dreamers and what she often refers to as “closeted creatives” identify, nurture, and manifest their dreams… people who are feeling stuck, overwhelmed, restless – even trapped – and are tired of saying “maybe someday.” She does so with creative vigor through a variety of programs, the most popular of which is her renowned Dream Acceleration Program. Tara has touched the lives of thousands from not only across the country, but around the world … one person at a time, supporting them in how to break FREE from what no longer fits, how to course-correct, how to find fun again, and how to profoundly accelerate the realization of life dreams and goals.
While her official title is Dream Acceleration™ Master Coach, Tara thinks of herself as a freedom-fighter on behalf of YOUR dreams – the ones that have been tucked away, forgotten, or are buried under a heavy pile of “I can’t because’s…. When not running her biz … a good guess is that she’s sweatin’ it up on a salsa dance floor.
Let Tara apply her passion for harnessing the combined power of a holistic
philosophy, individual gifts and strengths, authentic expression, and a plan of action in order to help YOU live the life you’ve dreamed of!

Here’s a bit of her personal story, in her own words:
“As I look back just one year ago, after having participated in the Create Your Life! Dream Acceleration™ Program and then continuing as a private coaching client of Tara’s, I am simply amazed at how much has changed – for the better! This includes: taking a big leap and leaving the corporate career I had outgrown, enjoying and consciously choosing how I spend my time and energy, releasing old worn out beliefs … and by no coincidence, SO many new opportunities have shown themselves to me like, for example, becoming co-facilitator of the very program that was so pivotal to my journey! The Create Your Life! tools and support I’ve received have helped me become more of my authentic self and provided me with the safe, loving environment I needed to explore, clarify, and make changes for a far more rewarding, relaxed, confident experience of life! I feel so incredibly blessed to be able to now share and contribute to the journeys of others in this powerful way. Can’t wait to get dreaming with you!”
