Meet the CEO

Tami Abiose,

MSW, LMSW, IACC Certified Life Coach & Trained Mentor

Growing up in a single-parent household, my mother stayed optimistic. At times, we were "couch hopping," living at a shelter or in a motel and I never saw her frown at all. She always had a smile on her face, still showed love and kindness to others. I remember at a time we were so poor we didn't have natural gas but we had a "hot plate' to cook food. Of course, it never got hot enough to cook ramen noodles completely, so most of the time we ate them raw. I never knew my family was poor until I started going to a friend's home and seen all the food they had to eat or the furniture they had in their home. Either way, my mother still made it fun somehow and stayed positive for us. Her trust in God is what pushed my family through. She knew He was faithful so she gave all her troubles to him.

Life is always ever changing and what I have learned is to embrace every journey that I have been on...good and bad. It made me the woman I am today. Although, at times, as an adult, I thought I would never have good days so I had to learn to change my mindset. I truly believe everything starts mentally, the success you want in life, love, prosperity and pure happiness starts with your thoughts. Being a child of God, helps you remember that YOU are chosen and YOU are truly blessed no matter what. Having a Father who always loves you through everything starts the foundation to empower us to try new things, think optimistically and improve our lives as well as show love to those who are around us. Giving a smile or asking someone how they are doing can truly change or touch someone, so quickly that their day has changed for the better. Just with that small act of kindness you might have changed their life after showing them never know.


I started Empower Life Group because I believe living life is all about change, think optimistically and positively in everything we do. We have services such as counseling and life coaching to help you empower your life to a higher level of positivity. Being down, thinking negatively, heartbroken, or feeling hopeless are all just TEMPORARY. You don't have to think your life is stuck and you will always struggle with something. It simply is not the case! In Proverbs 16:3 NLT says, "Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed." Knowing that God is in your corner, you have the encouragement and support to succeed which should always be a reminder how special you are. He is with you everyday, every step of the way. There is joy in everything that God has created including within yourself. It's there, you have to find it...again. There was a time I lost my joy, but with prayer and changing my mindset, I got it back. I have never been happier in my life as an adult until I started changing things, for the better. ELG wants to walk with you on your new journey of optimism and began something so beautiful they way God intended, one step at a time. We all have hard times, but just know it doesn't last forever. Taking the first step is the hardest, but wait until you see the reward, it's beautiful to be in a positive mindset. God loves you, I love you and I know you can do it! Break the chain and change your life. You will not be disappointed.
