About Tardus Wealth Strategies

They say that necessity is the mother of invention.

Tanisha and Chris Souza were newlywed, drowning in six figure student loan debt, and Tanisha desperate to escape her grueling career as an attorney. The Souzas took a leap of faith into real estate investing and achieved financial freedom. Soon after, Tanisha quit practicing law and Tardus was born, on a mission to help others achieve that same freedom.

Tanisha spent several years and dozens of prototypes developing and perfecting a system that could help a person create self sustaining passive income and eliminate debt simultaneously while projecting the person’s financial freedom date – in most cases within 5 to 10 years. Because of the speed in which a person could grow their income, Tanisha appropriately named it the Income Snowball. She was granted a patent for it in 2014.

Today Tardus Wealth Strategies is a full service wealth-coaching company, headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii and helping members around the country, and the world. Tardus Wealth Coaches work individually with members on a monthly basis to help them create a predictable system for creating passive income, paying off debt, and planning for their financial future.

Kathy has been active in several facets of real estate investing for many years. When she learned about the power of the Income Snowball strategy she became a client to continue her financial education and benefit from the Tardus patented financial system. Since she has seen the results of the Tardus system work seamlessly during times of economic upheaval and uncertainty, Kathy believes it can help relieve stress, and provide long term stable income for many. She realized it was time for her to share the benefits of Tardus with others, who like her, were concerned about financial stability and retirement income. Kathy enjoys helping people realize their full potential while assisting them in accomplishing their financial dreams and goals. “Like so many people, my husband Mike and I want to retire with an assurance that our monthly income is secure while we travel and enjoy the culture of each new destination.”

Chris has had a varied and interesting career in the financial services industry. From his beginning as a floor traded at the Minneapolis Grain Exchange, where he traded grain, metals, oil and ag commodities, he realized that Minneapolis was not the center of the financial universe. A move to Chicago or New York was interrupted with his wife being pregnant with one of his 4 children, so the Twin Cities remained home.

Continuing his career by becoming securities and insurance licensed. In 1990, He and his business partner started a financial planning firm. As the company grew, it became a multi-faceted company to serve their client’s every need. From owning a broker-dealer, commodities IB, Insurance agency, Registered Investment Advisory firm and International Hedge Fund, the company grew to five offices and 65 representatives.

Chris’ great-grandfather started a company which is now a Fortune 500 company, but with improper estate planning, the fortune which should have been inherited, is virtually gone. Chris has made it his goal to teach his clients the methodologies to create wealth and retain wealth for generations to come.

Currently Chris enjoys playing and coaching hockey. Most recently he coached the Minnesota Wild Blind Hockey Team, the first blind hockey team in Minnesota.

He also plays bass guitar in a 80‘s & 90’s rock band, which his spouse Darlene claims to enjoy listening to!
