An Interview with Tama Kieves

Suzanne recently had the honor of interviewing Tama Kieves, bestselling author of This Time I Dance! Creating the Work You Love, upon publication of her second book, Inspired & Unstoppable: Wildly Succeeding In Your Life’s Work.

In this lively and inspiring conversation, Tama shares her deep insights about how to gain access to your own power to create work – and a life – you deeply love. She illuminates the crucial distinction between linear success and inspired success, and explains that the most fundamental shift to make is one of being inner-directed. We must learn to listen to the genius within rather than trying to follow others’ direction – even the so-called experts. Wildly succeeding in the work you love is about following your desire, instinct and inclination moment to moment.

Tama’s bold, loving and deeply insightful presence radiates through this interview. As with her writing, she speaks with such passion and authority that you are effortlessly uplifted and inspired with the truth that you do have what it takes to bring your dreams to life.

This interview is just over 60 minutes long and is worth every bit of that time…and more.
