Episode 337: Living In My Purpose – an Interview with Tanya Miller


Tanya J Miller is a 40-year-old author, speaker, coach, strategist, and entrepreneur. She is the owner-operator of a Minority Woman’s Business Enterprise (MWBE) business.

Shortly after starting a “side hustle” passion project, she began to suffer from “major pain”. She initially believed the pain was related to a previously diagnosed chronic illness but quickly discovered “that it was something else”.

Her symptoms forced her to visit between 10 and 12 doctors, all of whom struggled to locate the cause of her cognitive issues, seizures, and “legs going out without notification”. The first hint of a diagnosis came from her chiropractor who noted that her symptoms were similar to a “teen patient that was diagnosed with Lyme disease”.

Following the chiropractor’s advice, she returned to a medical doctor to demand to be tested for Lyme disease. The initial and follow-up blood testing confirmed she was positive for stage 3 chronic Lyme disease.

The treatment that followed helped Ms. Miller to discover her purpose, faith, and resourcefulness. If you would like to learn more about how Lyme disease taught a business professional that her God-given purpose was to represent others suffering from chronic Lyme, then tune in now!
