Marin Laukka - Authenticity

Marin Laukka - Authenticity

Marin Laukka shows us the importance of staying curious, and why it’s ok to be a quitter. During this conversation, we each share our story behind our use of the word “authentic” and explore a few other concepts that seem to trigger strong emotions in people. Marin is a dancer, coach, speaker, and author of “Ready Enough: Your 7-Step Guide for Life's Hardest Decisions.” Marin has a master’s degree in positive developmental psychology and certifications in life coaching and yoga, which have contributed to her obsession with authenticity and staying true to herself. Marin’s business, Yes&, offers high-touch, individual and group coaching catered to your unique goals, roadblocks, & ambitions.


  1. Sometimes it’s just not the season to follow through on the original plan.
  2. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing. It’s a continuous process – it’s those little leaps of faith that build upon each other and create more clarity and foster more confidence within ourselves that lead to more fulfillment and life satisfaction.
  3. Make your quit list. 
  4. Ask yourself: is it time to ditch the physical manifestation of your “thing” and pursue something different to get to the same outcome, or should you pause and come back to it another time?
  5. Once you’re stepping toward the thing that you’re considering, you’ll free pretty quickly whether it’s the right thing for you or not.
