Memorable quote

“As a culture, coaching’s not a known quantity. If we can get to the point to where the most hard-nosed bean counter can look at the outcomes of any given coaching engagement and think that just makes sense, then we’re in a good place.”

❓❓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.
