About Tonya Weathers

Tonya Weathers is a real estate investor & consultant. Her mission is to help women propel themselves and their families forward to achieve financial freedom through real estate investment coaching.

There are many curses that have been placed on communities - especially minority communities - that stop us from ending crippling health conditions, fighting injustices, providing top education to our children, and, ultimately, reaching financial freedom. That’s why she founded the Breaking Curses: Real Estate Investing Academy. 

This academy is meant to give women - the backbones of our families - the tools, resources, and confidence to walk away with a solid real estate investment that fits their needs and goals.
