Conversations with Tamela Kemp

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tamela Kemp.

Hi Tamela, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
After moving to LA briefly to pursue a career in acting when I was in my early 20’s, I quickly realized that scene was not for me. When I returned home to Maryland trying to “find myself,” I thought I would explore my passion for photography. I graduated from Washington School of photography when I was 24 and started working with a local wedding photographer, Michael Kress Photography. Loved that job. They were my second family. I worked with Michael and the gang for almost 15 years until I became a mom and we moved to Baltimore. Throughout this time, I had always designed my own websites and took pictures for people for their websites. Only problem would get stuck trying to DIY their web design themselves, and not much would come out of these branding photoshoots. After moving to Gilbert eight years ago, I realized I had much more to offer than just doing the photos.

So I created my new full-service web design business where I offered business coaching, photography, assistance in logo design and create and build the complete website. I had always suffered from depression and major anxiety, but it wasn’t until moving to AZ that is became unbearable and I went through an existential life crisis and spent several weeks in the hospital. After that, I just knew something had to give and I couldn’t go on like that anymore. that is when I started meditating and discovered kriya yoga and the Himalayan meditation technique. I was hooked. I began training with Angie Hall Yoga and spent about two years learning ancient technologies that completely changed my life. Three months in, I was off all medication that I had been on for over 20 years.

I finally felt liberation in my mind and spirit. This was the process where I actually “found Myself.” My true self, and I’ve never looked back. Throughout my training, I went to Bali and India. In India, expanding my knowledge of these life-transforming teachings. This leads me to discover my niche. I realized I wanted to work with like-minded people and realized there is quite a need for web design for healing arts professionals. These entrepreneurs have special gifts that help make the world a better place and are told they can create a website themselves. Then they get bogged down and frustrated trying to do the techy stuff. This is where I come In. I do my passion of web design for them so they can get back to helping people. They feel proud of their professional design website making their business legit and now they are ready to reach their dream clients. I absolutely love what I do and the people I work with. My clients always end up becoming dear friends.

We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
There were times that it was a pretty rough road. Through meditation and finding a supportive community I have been able to find joy in the journey. During the tough times, I now embrace the emotions that arise and use the tools I have learned to help me return to my inner wisdom of knowing the lows are always temporary and that there is always something magical to be grateful for.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I help entrepreneurs – especially healers, yoga teachers/studios, and creative types who are struggling with their DIY website, or are in need to elevate their online presence, so they can build a profitable business doing what they love and making the world a better place. I’m known for being more than a web designer. I also help coach and guide my clients through the process of brand identity, goals, and how best to connect with their ideal potential clients. I am proud that I take the struggle out of the DIY site for my clients and create a beautiful responsive sites that they are proud to launch and promote. My clients have beautiful gifts that help people heal and feel better. I love knowing that by hiring me, that free up space for them to do their beautiful work. I help make their business legit with a professionally built and designed site so they can reach their clients and help people feel better.

So, before we go, how can our readers or others connect or collaborate with you? How can they support you?
Readers can connect with me through my website or Instagram. I love collaborating with folks who have special gifts that help people live their best life. If you know someone in the healing arts field who is struggling with their DIY web design and that is getting in the way of them reaching their tribe and having a profitable business, please tell them about me. It’s my absolute passion to elevate their online presence so they can do their beautiful service and help people feel their best.
