Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
Like a pot of the famous Louisiana gumbo, Johnny Tan’s life has been richly flavored over the years by his 9 moms.

In April 2007, Johnny began recording the many heartfelt moments and words of wisdom expressed in the kitchen. The result is “From My Mama’s Kitchen - food for the soul, recipes for living.”

Adopted at birth in Malaysia, Johnny arrived in the United States at 18 to attend LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Here, he began a journey that led him into crossing paths with several women he affectionately referred to as moms. His 9 moms provided inspiration, support and life skills that guided him towards his pursuit of personal excellence.

After college, Johnny worked in the restaurant industry for 18 years. He left a successful career as chief operating officer in 2001 to fulfill a dream of owning his own business. Today, The Reyna Collection® is a premier multi-line resource group representing several major companies and manufacturers with a diverse product line which includes architectural antiques, bronzes, and custom designed water features.

Living by his personal vision and mission statement (on website), Johnny is committed to enriching the lives of all the people he meets. He uses potent leadership to support the people he represents, endeavoring to bolster their spirits and the good of the community.

Johnny is also an accomplished ballroom dancer with an amateur status. He has performed with his dance partners for more than 10 years at various ballroom and charity events in Louisiana and Texas. He currently resides in Dallas, Texas.

Vision and Mission Statement

Johnny believes the best way to know him is through his personal vision and mission statement, which he composed in January 1996.

For Myself: Using my gift of creativity and imagination, I will continue to invent the future by expressing my visions courageously in words and actions. I will always be a professional – honoring integrity, justice, kindness, and will always be humble and have a sense of humor in everything I do.

For My Family: They are my treasure. I will always promote and take the lead in building healthy and loving relationships that allow each of us to become his or her best.

For My Professional Life: I will create a learning environment that is fair and honest. I will cultivate and inspire others to greatness and success by acting as a catalyst in a shared vision.

For My Community: I am committed to enriching the lives of all who cross my path. I will let potent leadership ring through the community. I will join hands with my brothers and sisters respecting everyone’s rights. I will support the people I represent, and endeavor to bolster their spirits and the good of the community.

Talk about evidence of the results of exactly what Johnny teaches – partner with others to serve and make a difference and you will achieve more than you can imagine possible!
