Tasha Cochran had no idea how she was going to afford college, so she joined the US Marine Corps. She became a mother as a teenager, and, while serving as a full-time Marine, took night classes at a community college, then attended Yale Law School. She got a great job, but also found herself posting YouTube videos about hair and personal finance, which led her to realize that she needed to sell products and services to grow her side business.

Now, at One Big Happy Life, Tasha helps people create lives they love while building wealth for their best financial future. She helps her clients take control of their lives and their money once and for all in a busy world with jobs, kids, money, and health demanding their attention.
