Career coaches Tanya Smith (The Expert Brand Coach) and Tai Goodwin (The Career Makeover Coach) team up to launch a new BlogTalk radio show for professional women of color - Your Brilliant Success.

Positive. Proactive. Prepared. That’s the focus of new online radio show, Your Brilliant Success. The hour long show, scheduled to launch on October 7th, 2010, will be part of the DivaToolbox network on BlogTalk radio.

While co-host Tanya Smith and Tai Goodwin have never met in person, online networking brought them together on Facebook, and following phone conversations found them to be kindred spirits. “We are both passionate about seeing more women of color advance professionally and we both love using social media!” Says Goodwin. Known as, The Career Makeover Coach, Ms. Goodwin is the former solo host of Career Makeover Strategies. “From the first conversation Tanya and I clicked so I jumped at the chance to collaborate with her.”

The show, formatted as a dialogue between the two coaches, will feature a new topic every other week with occasional guest invited to the conversation. Upcoming show topics include:

· Ten Ways to Sabotage Your Success
· Building a Successful Brand
· Sacrificing for Success: Can You Really Have It All?

With so many bleak reports about job loss and the economy, there’s been an abundance of attention given to job search strategies. But what about the women who have jobs and are looking to advance in their career – they’ve gotten lost in the shuffle. So instead of dwelling on the negative, the show will focus on the positive, encouraging women to be proactive about preparing for success instead of just waiting idly for things to change.

“This will not be your typical career advice show,” says Smith, recently named the new Career Development Program Manager for the Workplace Coach Institute, "What makes it different is that Tai and I are both well versed in traditional career strategies, however, we take it to a whole new level by promoting ways to manage your career with affordable, online tools."

Smith, of Be Promotable, has worked with hundreds of corporate professionals helping them reinvent themselves as power players in their select industry/business. She is best known for offering the most innovative, cutting-edge career resources designed to help ambitious professionals market themselves as indispensable in a progressively competitive and complex workforce.

Her co-host, Goodwin began blogging about career transformation two years ago. Her articles can be found across the web on renowned sites including and She specializes in helping professionals go from burnt out to blossoming by choosing a career path more inline with their values, passion, and lifestyle goals.

Both coaches are working moms who understand the challenge of balancing family life with professional ambition. That’s one of the reasons the show airs at a mom-friendly 9PM EST – after most younger kids are asleep.
