During this week’s episode of The Missing Link for SLPs podcast, we speak with speech-language pathologist, life coach, and author Tsgoyna Tanzman. She shares what writing and self-publishing a book was like, why she coaches, and what made her choose speech pathology — and return after some time away.

 

Discussion & Reflection Questions

  1. You recently self-published a book for stroke survivors and caregivers. Can you tell us a little about that?
  2. For those who are interested in writing books of their own, what was the writing and self-publishing process like?
  3. In addition to being an author and SLP, you’re a life coach. How did you get into that, and what is it like?
  4. Who are some of the greatest coaches you worked with?
  5. Would you share with us why you became a speech pathologist and why you left?
  6. What made you come back to the field after spending time away?
  7. What words of advice did somebody give you that you did not follow and you were glad you did not follow?

Quote of the Conversation

“It was how she made me feel. She made me feel like there was hope. She made me feel like there was something that was going to shift. And I left the hospital after that, and I re-entered the field with a whole new perspective of how I was going to work with patients and what my real purpose was.”
