“I really used to love this podcast. I started listening because, as a female lawyer, I found a lot of what Kara had to say very helpful in terms of managing my mindset and achieving my goals in a mentally and emotionally taxing, male-dominated field (if I remember correctly, her podcast originally was specifically targeted to lawyers/former lawyers). Eventually, however, I had to stop listening because I felt disturbed by (1) the amount of content geared toward coaching wannabe life coaches about how to become successful life coaches (do people not realize this is basically a scam?) and (2) the number of guests on the podcast are not experts but…other coaches.
Don’t get me wrong, there is a time and a place for life coaches, and I do see life coaching as a legitimate (even if a bit frivolous) occupation. I also think Kara’s background gives her some great insight into the topics she discusses on the podcast. However, I completely agree with another reviewer who commented that a “master life coach” is not a degree in anything that qualifies someone to give advice, particularly psychological advice. While there’s no need to be “qualified” to give general life advice, much of the content of this podcast is psychological in nature, and giving psychological advice without the qualifications to do so can be dangerous. The whole thing has just started to give me major MLM vibes.”
