Tanya Valor is a multi-faceted, vibrant and enthusiastic entrepreneur, activist, and catalyst for change. Her early career spanned various industries, including air travel, diamond jewelry, cosmetic surgery, FMCG, artisan spirits, and government communications.
After a decade of climbing the career ladder, she realised it was against the wrong wall, and crashed and burned out. Deeply desiring to navigate her way out of the depression she found herself in a holistic and grounded way, her life underwent a renovation.
In 2020 she studied and qualified as a hypnotherapist, and from the ashes of the life she had burned rose VALOR - a movement dedicated to helping women live their lives with Valor; Courage, Strength & Worthiness. In 2021 Tanya launched The VALOR Programme, a signature self-paced course designed to help women improve their eating, exercise and self-care habits and routines.
Since then, VALOR has expanded into an entire co-created ecosystem. As more and more people have heard about what VALOR's mission is, and realized how it aligns with their own,
Her passion for education and love for events has led her to organize and host two independent TEDx events (Wales and Mexico)
She has performed stand-up comedy since 2016, and was a finalist in 2019 WUSA (Welsh Unsigned Standup Awards). She has shared the stage with TV names such as Ignacio Lopez, and she is currently working on a new show for 2023.
"You really can't compare VALOR Magazine to anything that's already out there. It's too different ~ we're doing things differently. From how we craft each edition, to the way we share all profits with our collaborators - it's not how things have been done before - and I believe that is what the world needs."

In Summer 2022, Tanya was hit with a lightening bolt of inspiration, and began crafting a brand new magazine for women. Something different. Something that created change. A unique, seasonal co-created publication, available in print and digital worldwide.
A sexy and stylish magazine that women love to read, and talk about.
An independently produced thought-leadership manual, written by women. Front to back pages filled with tools and resources from wise women; women who are experts in their fields and masters of their craft, women who talk the talk, and walk the walk.
Having grown up reading a variety of magazines, Tanya had always loved them - after all, they were far more visual and captivating than books. From Sabrina's Secrets to Cosmopolitan, her mother would always have some kind of subscription running at the local newsagents for her.
At age 10 she was producing The Baglan Bizz, a newsletter for the pupils at her school, which she convinced her friends to help with. Together they created word searches, told stories, and at one time ran a campaign for the school to purchase egg chairs from IKEA to replace the standard ones.
Despite having no experience in publishing, Tanya is today re-living what brought her joy as a child - making magazines, except this time the desired impact is far greater than the school playground.
Through purposeful partnerships, the gentle gradual cultivation of community, and positive impact messages and resources, VALOR Magazine has one intention - to empower women to live their lives with VALOR; Courage, Strength & Worthiness, and make the world a better place.
