What motivates you? Tara Garrison

What motivates you? Tara Garrison

Listen to Coach Tara Garrison. Part way through you'll hear her quote that I just love... "I call health my gateway drug to personal awakening." I thought that was just brilliant! Tara talks a bit about what got her into helping others, but even more about what keeps her in that space, and some of the experiences that have helped her heal and continue on the path of personal enlightenment.

I catch up with a friend who, at a very young age, started to experience significant physical limitations. But through her struggle, she has learned to notice the good around her, and she's focused on keeping a genuine smile on her face.
