Tarsha Polk, MBA is professionally known as The Marketing Lady™. She is a marketing coach for entrepreneurs, personal brand coach, and international speaker who is passionate about entrepreneurship. It seems like yesterday when Tarsha stepped out on faith and left a corporate sales and marketing job. Her boss, at the time, denied her an internal transfer without good reason. She was top five in sales on the team, awarded for several achievements, and was a hard worker. Soon it dawned on her that someone else was in control of her destiny and she didn’t like that, so she turned in her resignation and started her own marketing services firm in 2003.
Over the years, she has been blessed to work with absolutely AMAZING clients like Pegasus Hotels, Wyndham Hotels, City of Dallas, National Football League, Carl Miller of the Dallas Cowboys, Epitome Magazine, Builders of Hope, Dallas Housing Authority, Citizen Notification Service, Momentum Texas and many other small to mid-size firms. She has spoken internationally, written columns for newspapers, and hosted an Internet talk radio show called Let’s Talk Success where she interviewed celebrities like Magic Johnson, Randel Pinkett-Season 5 Winner of the Apprentice, Jeff Timmons from the group 98 Degrees, as well as corporate CEOs and executives.
Tarsha Polk has received numerous awards from the small business community, as well as volunteered time and experience to charitable organizations in the Dallas area. Even after all these years, her vision for the company remains the same: To help organizations and entrepreneurs grow through innovative business solutions, deliver value to customers and create synergistic relationships. Today, she leverages her marketing and social media skills to turn people into brands by helping entrepreneurs and career professionals market the unique qualities that differentiate them in the marketplace.
