My first act – business – is what got me here.
Several years ago, I received a wake-up call that made me realize I was not living a life of happiness and personal fulfillment. I had to face an uncomfortable truth – that in achieving financial success and the so-called American Dream, I had become spiritually bankrupt and uncomfortably numb.
I had spent decades building a very successful business career and reached the pinnacle of success as the founder/CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm. I wasn’t about to throw all of that away, so I started to introduce changes over time. My advice is don’t quit your day job - change doesn't happen overnight.
As my journey progressed, I realized that I had a message that I could share with others: don't wait to live your dreams. You can live a life of success and fulfillment. The products and services offered on this website are designed to help you get started on a path to personal fulfillment. Follow my journey in my books, on this website, and on my FaceBook and LinkedIn pages.
I began to explore my creative side, which had been dormant for decades. My hidden talents began to emerge as I started a variety of creative projects. I unleashed my passion for clothing and jewelry design – and my own brand, Tseneh (pronounced 'tsee-nuh'), was born. The Tseneh story is about my journey to fulfill a lifelong dream and is documented in my book: Exposed – An Unexpected Journey from Fear to Freedom.
In 2016, I formed Tseneh Design Group and created the Tseneh web site (www.tseneh.com) to provide a platform for my creativity. All of my designs can be seen on the Tseneh website. My first collection is the "Fear to Freedom" jewelry collection, and includes pendants, bangles, earrings, and chains in a variety of materials - pewter, Mystic Bronze, and sterling silver. Each item has a specific meaning and is designed to mark a key event or experience on the journey of life.
Starting any new business involves risk and there is no guarantee that you be instantly successful. I believe that, in this day and age, it’s a very good idea to have several revenue streams. In fact it generally takes time to build a market presence in new field. By having multiple sources of revenue, if one or more streams slow down or dry up, there will always be revenue coming in. For this reason, I decided to reactivate my real estate licenses with Long and Foster in the Washington, DC metropolitan area (DC, MD, and VA).
A true American entrepreneur, Nancy Slomowitz built Executive Management Associates, Inc. (EMA) from the bottom up into a highly successful multi-million dollar business consulting enterprise. Nancy shaped EMA into a highly-respected, platinum-level company. EMA saved millions of dollars for its customers by revamping their business operations of numerous organizations. As a result, the company received numerous awards for its commitment to excellence and dedication to providing outstanding customer service across multiple industries. In 2020, Nancy closed EMA to pursue other business opportunities. However, Nancy continues to support business clients through her Back Office Mentor business consulting program.

Nancy believes in giving back - success carries a responsibility to share that success with others. In 2010, Nancy created the non-profit Gilbert Slomowitz Foundation (GSF) in memory of her late father, Gilbert Slomowitz, a business leader and visionary. The Foundation's mission was to raise awareness about and fund scholarships for Transcendental Meditation (TM), a scientifically proven stress management technique. Nancy has been practicing TM since she was a teenager as a result of her parents' influence. She credits this practice with giving her the ability to thrive in today's stressful work environment, and offered TM as a benefit to employees in her own company. Through its TM Scholarship Program, the Foundation awarded more than 500 scholarships to individuals throughout the world who lacked the financial means to learn this valuable technique.
