Taryn Little is the founder and owner of THE WORLD NEEDS YOU enterprise, which focuses on empowering women through holistic counselling and the written and spoken word.
The World Needs You is an ethos that was birthed from Taryn’s own journey of discovering that she was born for a very specific purpose and that it was her responsibility to release her unique purpose into the world, for the advancement of the world.
Since this discovery she has been relentless in her mission to share an Inspirational Message with women entitled The World Needs You!Why was I born? What is my purpose in the world?
If you have ever pondered these questions or find yourself in a career that does not bring you fulfilment, then this message is for YOU. Not just a “talking head”, Taryn presents her message to WOMEN through dramatic rhetoric, song, dance and a personal reflection, revealing why THE WORLD NEEDS YOU!
The World Needs You is an ethos that was birthed from Taryn’s own journey of discovering that she was born for a very specific purpose and that it was her responsibility to release her unique purpose into the world, for the advancement of self, others and the world. It has therefore become her life’s work to empower others to reach their fullest potential.
Who am I? , is a question Taryn asked herself over eleven years ago. In desperate pursuit of her identity and how her identity was related to her purpose in this world, she embarked on a journey of self-discovery until she found the answers that resonated true for her. It is this body of experiential learning that so excited her, she felt responsibly compelled to share what she had learned with the world.
And so an inspirational message entitled Who am I was birthed. The message draws its insights from autobiographically inspired content. It is a human story told in a very personal and vulnerable manner, where the audience is taken on an introspective journey which invites them to reflect on whether they are living their most authentic, purpose-filled lives
The message is presented through diverse genres of academia, dance, dramatic monologue, song, personal reflection and the written word, which makes it applicable to a diverse audience. The message is universally relatable.
