The Success Journey

By Tessa Kampen | August 1, 2019

I used to think success meant I arrived at some particular goal or destination. Boy, was I ever wrong and I am so glad that I was. This type of thinking can have a person feeling really down about themselves. It had me doubting my abilities, my gifts, my talents and ultimately had me question…

Build Your Business to Last

By Tessa Kampen | July 11, 2019

Why do you think businesses fail? Is it because they don’t know enough, are not smart enough or lack certain skills? Maybe some of these come into play at some point, but I don’t think these are the main reasons. I believe business fail because they focus on the wrong things. Most of the entrepreneurs…

By Tessa Kampen | July 2, 2019

Have you ever felt like you were spinning in circles when it comes to your business? There have been times where I felt as though I was on the straight and narrow but then I got sidetracked and took a sharp left. That left road seemed smooth and then a quick right turn showed up.…

Goal Achieving Success

By Tessa Kampen | May 31, 2019

We all know how important goal setting is and if you google “goal setting” you will find several tips and tricks on how to do so. Some will tell you to follow the S.M.A.R.T System. While others will tell you to write out a massive “To-Do” list and just get it done. And others will…

Life Is One Big Lesson

By Tessa Kampen | May 21, 2019

Life is hard. Find me a person who has not gone through painful experiences and I’ll show you someone who hasn’t fully lived. In fact, I’ve have had my fair share of them myself. Just yesterday, I was doing some work in the back yard and I dropped a rock on my foot while working…

How Hope Helps You Win

By Tessa Kampen | May 14, 2019

When I was starting The Inspired Academy, I had a head full of ideas but how it was all going to fit together seemed impossible to me. As a result, I kept doubting myself. Considering I had only ever led a few workshops, why would anyone want to work with me? Starting to lose hope.…

Tessa is amazing woman! She's my go to person behind the scenes keeping me on track building my business, hitting my goals, balancing family life and making sure I don't burn out in the process. If you're looking for business support get in touch. She's incredible. I could not have pulled off this year without her!

Working with Tessa has encouraged me to pause, slow down and really focus in on the important aspects of running my business.  My weekly calls with Tessa are my most cherished chats as she stops me in my tracks and gets me to refocus and reflect.  Having her support and knowledge is the best buddy(coach) an entrepreneur could ask for!

Inspired Academy is exactly what I needed to get my new travel business going.  Switching careers and having to set new goals, task lists, and the never-ending to-do list seemed so overwhelming at the beginning. With this program, I’ve been able to prioritize the things that need to get done and I actually get them done.  I’m crushing sales goals much sooner than I ever thought possible. Tessa is the little voice in the back of my mind telling me to focus, work hard, prioritize, and stick to the plan.  Whenever I’m stuck for an idea, process, or just need to re-focus, Tessa is there.  Wouldn’t be where I am in my new business without her.

I just want to say how amazing I am finding this whole concept! I don't think I have ever felt so organized and focused, even when life throws me curveballs and everything falls apart. LOVE IT!! Thanks Tessa for bringing this to my life.

The Inspired Academy (really...Tessa) has really helped me focus on that ONE thing that's going to make the biggest impact in my business. There's SO much noise out there, and I'm easily distracted by so many things. Having her support and guidance has been invaluable to me the last few weeks. I also really like her positive and loving approach - I'm truly someone she cares about, not just another member. If you are always saying "I'm busy" and are pushing the most important parts of your work aside and need help being focused - you NEED to be here.

Tessa's program is great for any business owner (or really anyone anyone who uses the words "I'm always so busy"!) It will help you prioritize, focus and get things done!! And she genuinely cares about you, your challenges and your achievements.

Tessa is amazing! She helps you set goals, prioritize, focus and get out of your own way so that you can be working on the growth of your business not just doing all the other stuff that does serve your customer or your business growth. She also calls you out when you need it and holds you accountable.

The reason I joined the Inspired Academy with Tessa Kampen was for the monthly in person live mastermind events that she hosts. Monday's event was amazing. Tessa provided a content creation model that will take the guess work out of what to post for the entire year! The personalized support I received was phenomenal! If you are looking for a community of action takers the Inspired Academy is the place to be!

Tessa is amazing to work with! I love how she starts with the entrepreneur's need to articulate their business in a way that is easily digestible to others. She further walks us through incredibly creative ways to market to our audience that engages and educates them in a meaningful way. I'm so glad I found Tessa and her spin on representing our businesses!

I joined because I did not know how to be the owner of a business and I want to be successful. The problem I need help solving is how to market myself and my business and Tessa is always there to help me with that.

I registered to attend one of Tessa’s events even though I wasn’t sure if I could attend and be present (mentally or physically), but Tessa made me feel so comfortable and welcome during a time where I didn’t feel either of those things in life. I’m not sure if Tessa was actually aware of how much of an impact she’s had on my life.

I think because of that initial connection and feeling so thankful for meeting her, it was only a matter of time before I joined pretty much anything she offered.

Tessa’s personality and genuine interest in people and not just running a business is what sold me and what continues to sell me. We made that personal connection first and because of that I easily trusted her on the business front.

I joined the Academy because of everything I shared above and because I was looking for some likeminded people to connect with and inspire me. I realized that the people I normally surrounded myself with just didn’t “get it” or even understand my entrepreneurial brain! I’ve always been an entrepreneur by heart, but got distracted by all of my ideas and never focused on anything specific. Having someone to check in with and tools to set goals and plan have changed the way I work my current and future businesses.

I joined the Inspired Academy because I felt a connection with Tessa. I needed a new tribe of strong, positive women and I need to learn how to work for myself.

As a content creator myself, I find that I am so good at helping others creating content - when it comes to my own content, I get so stuck in my own head and so when I attended The Inspired Academy's in person session on Content Marketing Success Strategy, it gave me the inspiration I needed to come up with 52 weeks of content.  What I loved most is this was a working session, so having the time to learn then implement this strategy was gold.

Marketing my business is always the task that gets put to the back burner for no reasons other than overwhelm and fear.  There is always so much to do and I never know where to start my efforts.  Tessa's event takes the fear and overwhelm out of the process.  The technique she shares is genius, I think!  Even more amazing is that a plan for a year's worth of content can easily be created and put into action.
