Highlights from this conversation, recorded on March 26, 2020:

  • How social isolation and physical distancing have affected James Victore’s day to day life and business.
  • Why we can’t operate out of fear and resistance.
  • The importance of establishing a new normal.
  • Why being weird is our original default, and a source of power.
  • What happens when creatives choose to fight.
  • What James would like to see come out of our time of challenge.
  • Fear and scarcity vs becoming resourceful
  • The role of creativity, innovation and humour in emerging as a leader.

Memorable Quotes:

On leadership: “Part of the problem with the world right now is creativity on a cultural level comes from top down. The world has very few creative leaders right now.”

On his role as a leader: “All I can do is keep moving and keep doing what I’m doing and try to come at it from a place of love and compassion and creativity. And to be of service.”

❓❓Q: What's the story behind Free Your Inner Guru podcast and community? ❓❓ A: If you're like me, you appreciate knowing a little about the origin story behind any project. Plus there's stuff here to know before listening to the newest episode with Dr Janja Lalich: When Self Help Turns Cult. (This is a long read, continued in the comments - if you prefer, go to the ORIGIN STORY link @freeyourinnerguru bio and read it as a blog where I’m keeping it updated.) My name is Laura Tucker. In my professional life, I've been a teacher, corporate trainer, salesperson, self employed business consultant, gym owner, and leadership coach. My favourite things to do are read, write, ride my bike, hike and travel, preferably with a camera in my hands. I'm intensely passionate about outdoor nature photography. ⛰️ I lived in Toronto, my original home town until 2005, at which point I packed up my dog and fledgling consulting business, and moved across Canada to Kelowna, British Columbia. I wanted to be closer to big nature , so I could use my camera more in my daily lifestyle. So, given all that, why do I host Free Your Inner Guru? While I was working as a consultant in the automotive industry in 2008, I went on a #personalgrowth journey. We were in the throes of the Great Recession. I needed something to keep myself uplifted while I supported my clients through a challenging economic period. TURNS OUT, I'M A SEEKER I didn't know it at the time, but I was in "seeking mode," looking for answers to the big questions we ask ourselves about life when the going gets tough.
