SAGU alumna published in Forbes MagazineWaxahachie, Texas — April 5, 2013 — On April 2, 2013, Forbes® Magazine published the article "Should You Have a Solution Just Because You Identify a Problem?," written by Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) alumna Tamisha Ford.

Ford says that instead of expecting others to provide solutions to problems, people should be asking, "How many people who can directly change an outcome or problem are committed to doing so?” She explains, "If I’m directly part of a problem, but I feel someone else should be the solution, it will never be solved."

In addition to creating her own website, Ford is a monthly contributor to the women's websites "Loren’s World" and "The Glass Heel" and has been featured in other online publications such as lifebyme.com, "Dreambelle," "Alive Magazine" and "Identity Magazine." She has also helped companies such as Chevron, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and Tenet Healthcare revamp departments and increase revenue.

Ford describes her role as a businesswoman, "I’m an introvert entrepreneur and social strengths specialist who helps and supports other introvert entrepreneurs and women looking to establish or re-authorize their own voice in the marketplace. My work is rooted in a desire to see other introvert women succeed in both life and work and learn more efficient ways to navigate their social landscapes."

Ford uses her personal experiences and knowledge of marketing strategies to coach and mentor women in assertiveness, marketing skills and empowerment strategies. Founder of Meditative Arts (http://www.meditativearts.ca) Michelle Currie, M.Ed., says of Ford, “Tamisha is one of my favorite go-to sources for assertiveness advice. She gives great practical advice about creating healthy boundaries at work and home.”

Ford shares, "I have always known I was called to reach women internationally in my work, especially after going to Brazil with SAGU's singing group The Harvesters. I desire to have an international impact and am grateful for every door God opens."

Ford graduated from SAGU in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science in elementary education. After two years of teaching special needs students, she began pursuing a Master of Business Administration graduating in 2008 from the University of Phoenix.
