The Unrehearsed Heart

Harriet Turk has been inspiring teens and adults to discover their true identities and pursue a life of substance for more than 20 years. She has worked as a probation officer, youth programs coordinator, flight attendant, pharmaceutical sales rep, college-level instructor, and nationally-known professional speaker, trainer, and consultant. Harriet is also a mom, friend, sister, and daughter. When she was a teen, Harriet struggled with her own identity crisis. She fell into the trap of feeling like she had to be perfect. This led to an eating disorder that took years to overcome. Harriet’s life experiences have taught her that success and happiness come from celebrating who you are and pursuing a life that honors your strengths and abilities. Because her stories and experiences come from real life, Harriet’s message is authentic, relatable, and compelling.

Harriet’s nuggets of wisdom

“I just wanted people to realize that life doesn’t have to be full of crazy stuff”

“Practice and try new things until you have enough in your back pocket so if something isn’t working, yo can switch it out at a moments notice”

“Some of my best stories come from just in the moment, thinking, I’m just going to talk about this”

“The more that we give ourselves positive messages, the more we start to live it”

“We are the microwave generation, we want things now. We’ve been taught that if you follow an action plan, you’re going to have success. Sometimes you follow the wrong action plan”

“You set the tone for your life and people will follow you whether your negative or positive”

“Small conversations can end up having majestic moments”

“Capture the moment? lets change that to, be present in the moment”

“Its true, we get so bogged down on how we define success or what’s going on in our lives that we don’t think about the good things”

“If we look for the lessons, just stop, and look for the lessons in what has happened to us, we will see how to be better for the next time”
