T.A.N

Tyler A. Norman also known as The All Natural

I’m a multifaceted artist, entrepreneur, author, and intuitive guide for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. I see myself as a carefree spirit, young heart, and old soul. Here to be a reflection of you; unconditional love.

 As a Creative Entrepreneur I express my most authentic self through multiple creative facets such as writing, visual art, speaking, cooking, modeling, and natural beauty recipes. Providing holistic content, products, and services made to help us grow and find our inner glow. Through my work I inspire and assist individuals with personal growth, self-love, and finding an inner glow. 

My Story

My natural journey began in 2014 when I decided to transition to natural hair. This was a long and trying process which you can read about in My Natural Hair Journey. While researching and understanding the beauty of natural hair and using nature to nourish it, I gained a curiosity of other ways to carry out a natural lifestyle. My interest expanded to natural foods and products. Soon enough, natural was a perfect word to describe my physical lifestyle. I stuck with these new lifestyle changes and fell in love. I felt lighter, healthier, and I had this natural GLOW.

About 2 years into this period of my life it was time for me to start finding myself on a deeper level. I had graduated high school and began the process of building some sort of career for myself. At this time, I knew I had a gift of art, entrepreneurship, and some sort of counseling/psychology/healing work. Combined with a love and connection toward natural living. Yet, I didn’t know what to do with this combination of things that didn’t seem to fit together. So, I tried to fit myself into a box which caused me to have to eliminate parts of myself.

I studied business management along with some psychology at the University of Missouri. There, I learned many valuable life lessons, traveled, networked, and created some of my best memories. But, after 2 years I decided this was no longer my path; I could no longer try fitting into this box I placed myself in. I needed to be all of me not who the world or the system wanted me to be. After this huge lifestyle shift I was forced to dig deep within myself to truly find my purpose and passion in this world.

In this, I learned more about myself than ever before. I took strides toward manifesting the woman I was always meant to be. I followed my passion of holistic healing, began self education, accrued a Mental Health First Aid Certification, started a movement, wrote my first book, and started a business. I began the journey of loving and healing myself from the inside out. Through this on going journey, I found a deeper understanding of being natural.

The word natural isn’t just about hair, food, or products; the physical stuff. It’s so much deeper; it’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. For me, natural means my truest and rawest self. To be The All Natural is to embody, nourish, and love my most authentic self. To be my whole self. Whether that be through my hair, my body, my career, or my spirituality.  It is to be my true self in all aspects of life. Not to be perfect; instead, it’s the drive to be the best natural version of me I can be and loving whoever that is.
