ABOUT  TaJanna

Hey there, I'm TaJanna Mallory, I am honored that your spending time in my corner of the internet! Thank you for considering me to be your business coach. Think of me as your personal cheerleader, helping you navigate the wild world of leadership, diversity, and team empowerment across all industries.

Now, let's rewind a bit. After graduating from college, I spent over a decade in the corporate world, rocking it as an administrative professional. You know, the "go to" person in the office, supporting multiple executives at once. I was in my element, and I even worked for a 40,000-member church (yep, they have C-level executives too!).  I gained so much experienced working with a bunch of industries, from startups and technology to non-profits, finance, education, and even hospitality. I worked for big names like Deloitte & Touche, Fiserv, Oliver Wyman, Comcat, and Tropical Smoothie Café. Talk about a wild ride!

But here's the kicker—I have a passion for travel, and the daily grind of coming into the office just wasn't cutting it for me anymore. So, in 2016, I decided to take the leap and launched my own virtual assistant business. I had no clue about freelancing, but I knew I was darn good at my job. Plus, I was tired of those hospital-gray cubicles and Atlanta traffic jams. Can I get an amen?

I took a chance on myself and do you know what happened? Within the first two days of launching, I booked not one, but two clients! And within a month, I waved goodbye to my full-time job and replaced my corporate income. It was a serious mic-drop moment. But hold on, the plot thickens!

One of my brand-new clients happened to be a cannabis grower, and bam! I stumbled upon a niche for my business. Before I knew it, my solo services grew into a full-fledged agency, CannAssistants, the first to agency to provide top-notch administrative support exclusively to cannabis industry professionals and entrepreneurs. But you know what? I've always been one to level up and aim for the stars.

So, after six incredible years, I closed the virtual doors of CannAssistants, gifted my amazing VAs the clients they were assigned to, and voila! PURSUIT. was born. Now, my mission is helping small business owners pursue their dreams and to help them refocus on what ignited their entrepreneurial spark in the first place. Talk about a dream come true!

NOW, let's talk about you! Are you ready to conquer the business world with a fire in your belly? From me, you can expect practical strategies, fresh perspectives, and a whole lot of inspiration. Together, we'll tackle your business in a way that encourages and empowers you to pursue your business dreams.
