James Kinney {on removing the guru}

In this week's conversation we break down the difference between idolization and inspiration. In a culture where we long for a "guru" to tell us everything we need to know in life, we have to drawl boundaries so we can harness our own internal guiding system. We also bring on James Kinney to talk about his path in life to becoming a U.S. President!
