Welcome to LAU

Live Authentic University

It wasn't until my heart and mouth matched that I was able to truly embrace the woman I was created me to be.   

I remember being in prayer crying out for clarity on who I was,  to "show me, me" authentically; and the word acceptance would appear right before my eyes.  There I AM was showing me how I didn't have the capacity to love me, because I didn't know who "me" really was; and how I was busy wearing the shoes of the images I had created just to fit in.  When I finally got the revelation, I felt as though I was a balloon and someone had taken a pin and put a hole in it.  And for a few short minutes, I felt defeated, so I curled up in a fetal position and cried until I was ready to face the reality of being made over. 

All too often we lose ourselves conforming to societal viewpoints, albeit in ministry or the marketplace and we embrace that which the world dish out and that doesn't have be the end of our story.  If fighting you is the common denominator in your life, business or ministry and it is keeping you from being who you were purposed to be - LAU is for you!  It is pure authentic coaching and mentoring that will push you to the limits, give you time to embrace your new reality and then push you some more until you have achieved ultimate success!  Our overall mission is to educate, impact and empower entrepreneurial-minded women in ministry and the marketplace to learn, grow and achieve spiritual, personal, financial and professional success.  As your ministry and marketplace mentor, I am poised and committed to your overall success and well-being; mind, body and spirit.  Working one-on-one with me provides immediate inspiration, serious results and lasting knowledge to the woman who wants to live life authentic and on purpose. 



Well, LET'S GO-O-O-O-O!!!




of a person, action, or idea, showing an ability to take risks; confident and courageous; dauntless, brave, fearless

I have been through the fire and came out like pure gold.  There is a lioness ready to roar in every one of  us; prepared to show an act of courage, but for many, if not all of us, life has thrown a few curve balls and bold and courageous are no longer words that are a part of our genetic makeup.  Live Authentic University is now offering a 12-month mentorship program designed to help you reshape your thinking and regain your footing for a bold and authentic lifestyle.   

Over the course of 1 year, we will navigate through systems and barriers that have affected your natural ability to be bold and courageous in every aspect of your life.  You will be pushed to the limits and empowered to take risks - and if applied, the principles learned will allow you to conceive and give birth to your brilliance!




very bright and radiant, shining, blazing, dazzling, light; ​exceptionally clever or talented, gifted, genius, accomplished, ingenious, masterly, inventive, creative

We were all created to produce and have an innate ability to birth something brilliant.


At LAU, and through varying programs and training, you will walk away with deliberate and intentional disciplines for everyday living in ministry and the marketplace.




pleasing the senses or mind aesthetically, attractive, pretty, nice-looking, pleasing, alluring, prepossessing, of a very high standard; excellent.

Generally, when people think of beauty they think aesthetically, looking at one's outer and not their inner.  Yet, it is the inner beauty that reflects the outer beauty.  We have developed unique programs and training that will empower you to you take off every mask you've worn: masks that speaks to not being good enough, pretty enough, or worthy of who you were called to be; and embrace the outer you, flaws and all. 




of undisputed origin; genuine, original, real, actual, bona fide, true

This won't come easy or without work!


Being authentic is being true to you, know matter what anyone else thinks of you.  It's not compromising your values or your worth for the sake of pleasing others.  It is looking yourself dab smack in the eyes and noticing your flaws,  yet realizing that flaws and all, you are going to be okay.   It's mastering the two letter word, NO without worrying about being called a name that is not a part of your birth right.  Last, but certainly not least, it's about being unapologetically you!

You will cry and may even won't to quit, but for those who put in the work, the end-result will be a lifestyle that is authentic and unapologetically on purpose.

"I've worked with and have known La Tanya for years.  As "The Olivia Pope" of small business, there wasn't a problem that she couldn't help me and my organization resolve.  From strategy to execution, she gets in the trenches with you, helping you to see what you've become blinded to and stopping you from growing both professionally and personally.  If you are looking for someone who is dedicated to your growth and you're ready to put in work, La Tanya is your girl."
