November marks the beginning of National Entrepreneurship Month and observes National Philanthropy Day, two causes that are close to the heart of Tiffaney Dale Hunter, award-winning business owner, philanthropist, speaker and new author of her first book, “Dawn of a New Day: A 21-Day Inspirational Journal to Renew Your Faith, Mind & Spirit.”
“As an entrepreneur for 10 years, I understand the importance of celebrating all entrepreneurs and the many sacrifices they make to bring their passions and visions to life. It is so easy to focus completely on running your business without taking time to nurture yourself and others,” said Hunter. “Several years ago, I made a commitment to carve out time for myself and for giving back to the many organizations that are working daily to make an impact in the community.”
As the heart behind Tiffaney Dale Agency, a public relations and marketing company founded in 2006, Hunter has successfully thrived as an entrepreneur, while contributing her time, talent and resources to countless nonprofit organizations and charities. From working with past organizations like the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation, the March of Dimes Tarrant County and the Junior League of Collin County, to serving on the host committees for the Dallas Women’s Foundation’s Annual Luncheon, The Girls Scouts of Northeast Texas Women of Distinction Luncheon and the KNOWAutism Foundation, she has cultivated her passion for business, while simultaneously giving back to the community.
“I am thankful to be in a position where I can use my innate skills and talents to impact the bottom lines of businesses, while also providing services for charitable organizations that do not have adequate resources to increase awareness of the many services and programs that they provide to the community,” said Hunter.
Most recently, Hunter released her first book: “Dawn of a New Day: A 21 – Day Inspirational Journal to Renew Your Faith, Mind and Spirit.” A daily devotional, the book was originally written when she was deep in the trenches of running a start-up business. A very trying time, she was faced with many challenges and an array of emotions that many entrepreneurs endure such as fear, doubt, confusion and anxiety. It was during those emotional storms that she discovered the importance of making time for herself by carving out 10 to 15 minutes each day to be still, to practice mindfulness, to journal, to express gratitude and to pray. What was intended to be just a few days of self-reflection, turned into a full year of journal entries that truly changed her life and her business for the better. “Dawn of a New Day” captures the first 21 days of her inspiring journey and through daily scriptures and motivational messages provides a way for entrepreneurs, philanthropists and everyday people who are going through difficult times to get their joy, happiness, peace and passion back.
“Being an entrepreneur has been one of the most rewarding, yet challenging experiences. Those on the outside looking in only get to see the fruits of my labor, not realizing that it often took years of sacrifice and overcoming obstacles to finally reach success,” said Hunter. “My book, ‘Dawn of a New Day’, is a way to let other passionate people know that they are not alone in the uphill journey of running a business, while keeping them uplifted, motivated and encouraged during those difficult circumstances that almost always occur when working for yourself.”
In addition, “Dawn of a New Day,” which is dedicated to the memory of Hunter’s mother, continues her mother’s and family’s legacy of entrepreneurship, philanthropy and education. A percentage of book sales will help transform the lives of people, communities, and cities in the following ways:
