You might call Tami Simon a spiritual entrepreneur. As a college dropout and a seeker in her early 20s, she started Sounds True with a tape recorder and $50,000 she inherited after the death of her father. Sounds True is now one of the fastest growing privately held companies "disseminating spiritual wisdom" from Ram Dass to Eckhart Tolle to Brené Brown. Our interview with Ms. Simon is in production and will be available on Thursday. In the meantime, I've compiled my live-tweets of Krista's conversation with her in studio. Enjoy and share your favorites.

Like the practicality of some of these tweets - the simple act of touching your own face or arm, breathing before a meeting - sometimes the simplest ideas are the ones that stick with me after one of your programs. I'm still trying to fold clothes differently since listening to Boorstein for the first time on your program months ago! :>) And after your program with poet Marie Howe, for the first time in about 50 years, I wrote my first two poems and I like them! Also intrigued to hear more about "emptiness" and "self secret." You folks do useful work. Thanks.

Are you going to interview her for a show? I hope so. Tami's interviews on Sounds True are equal in importance to the OnBeing shows for me in the last couple years. She interrupts very little and has a knack for asking just the question that I would want to ask.
