Your Hosts

Tami Simon

Tami Simon

Founder & CEO of Sounds True

At age 22, Tami Simon started Sounds True, now a multimedia publisher, with a dream and a tape recorder. Though she had no business experience and only a vague idea of what she wanted the company to be, Tami had her guiding principle strongly in place: to disseminate spiritual wisdom.

Over its 35-year history, Sounds True has produced over 3,000 titles, been nominated twice for the Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing companies, and is North America’s leading publisher of spoken-word spiritual teachings.

One of the world’s very first organizations to focus on multiple bottom lines as part of its founding mandate, Sounds True has expanded steadily over the years while staying true to its original mission. Partnering with the leading spiritual teachers of our time, Sounds True now has a successful book publishing program (distributed by Macmillan), and has grown to produce events, certification programs, and transformational online learning experiences.

Tami hosts the popular Sounds True podcast, Insights at the Edge, which has now been downloaded more than 15 million times. She is also the founder of the new Sounds True Foundation, which is dedicated to bringing spiritual education to people who would otherwise not have access. She lives in Boulder, Colorado and in British Columbia with her wife, Julie Kramer, and their two spoodles, Raspberry and Bula.

Soren Gordhamer

Soren Gordhamer

Founder of Wisdom 2.0

Soren Gordhamer is the founder and host of Wisdom 2.0, the premier conference exploring living mindfully and wisely in the digital age. Past speakers at the Wisdom 2.0 event include the founders and CEOs of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and eBay, along with wisdom teachers including Prince Ea, Drs. John and Julie Gottman, Dr. Daniel J. Siegel, Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, and more.

He has spoken on or taught mindfulness to people around the world—from youth in New York City’s juvenile halls, to trauma workers in Rwanda, to staff at Google’s corporate headquarters. He is also founder of the award-winning nonprofit Lineage Project, which has served at-risk and incarcerated teens in New York City for over 20 years.

Soren is the author of Wisdom 2.0, one of the first books to explore living with mindfulness and wisdom within the context of our modern technological age. He works with members of the business and technology communities on living with greater mindfulness and purpose in our technology-rich age.

Inner MBA Faculty & Trainers

Most people don’t know the story behind the story of the world’s most accomplished, socially and spiritually conscious CEOs.

In these participatory CEO interview trainings, Tami and Soren will highlight and explore the internal processes that give CEOs the capacity to run multimillion and billion dollar operations in a values-driven way.

You’ll get unique access to the stories of how they overcame struggle and difficulty to lead with clarity—and a chance to ask them your questions in these special training sessions.

We are taking the health of all Inner MBA enrollees very seriously. We’ve made a few additional options available in your enrollment process.

If you are uncertain about traveling to the in-person immersion events in September 2020 and April 2021, you may now enroll for the Virtual Only Program, and then upgrade later to the In-Person Immersion Events & Virtual Program if you become more comfortable with travel.

Alternately, if you’d like to enroll in the In-Person Immersion Events & Virtual Program, you can downgrade to the Virtual Only option if you need to due to travel conditions.

To support anyone experiencing financial hardship during this time, we have opened up several more scholarships than we initially planned to, to make sure no student who wants to attend is turned away for financial reasons.
