About Tamara

Tamara Arnold is the two-time international bestselling author of The Magical Business Method and My Kid Is Driving Me Crazy! 


Tamara shows struggling entrepreneurs how to clear blocked chakras and discover their “stardust” — that unique gift that too often gets suppressed by parents, early educators and years of grinding out hours at jobs they hate.


After discovering her gift of reading energy (i.e. her stardust), Tamara shot from broke-online-nobody-scrounging-for-clients-at-45-bucks-an-hour, to award-winning author and business coach, retiring her husband, and rocketing to 6-figure success (dare we say, “overnight”).
