Simon Sinek Deeper Why Free Your Inner Guru Podcast

Going Deeper Into Your WHY – Simon Sinek

Welcome to the first episode of the fall season of Free Your Inner Guru!

Today we are launching our new brand, and I have a ton to share from an event I attended recently where I heard Simon Sinek – one of my favourite authors and speakers – share his wisdom at a live event in Toronto.

Simon Sinek is the author of Start With Why

Start With Why is a perennial bestseller that I recommend to each of my clients when they start their journey with me. His work has influenced my life and my work. I walked away with a deeper understanding of why your why is important.

Key points in this episode:

  • What’s the meaning behind the new brand?
