I brought Tara on the show because I admire her so much for her ability to not wait for permission, not wait to jump through the red tape, and just simply own her power and the things that light her up without any connections, without any record deal. Part of what she does is she’s a musician, she’s a beautiful artist. Rather than waiting for a record deal to start creating music and filling her soul’s desire, she just went for it and I admire her so much. In this episode we talk about the ability to unlearn the things you thought you were so you can recreate yourself. And this is something I talk about often on the Hungry for Happiness podcast. The way she described it is so beautiful, given her background, her childhood. She’s one of those people where you’re like. “Wow, you have truly created a remarkable life.” And I wanted to bring her on the show to really inspire you to give yourself permission to say, “Hey! I can recreate the narrative and be who I want to be NOW. ”
