A question we get a lot. In 1999 we decided it was time to make some changes in our then 67 year old business. We needed to shake things up a bit and we decided to change our name. I would love to tell you that we sat on top of a mountain for 7 days and 7 nights fasting until a vision hit us like a lightning bolt, but the name came to us as we were driving to Home Depot. We do not think we are Gurus. To us GetaGuru means get a passion. Get something in your life that you love with every fiber of your being and make that your Guru. It can be anything that works for you. This is our philosophy in both business and life.
Little did we know that the internet was about to go nuts with everyone being Gurus. Online a Guru is another word for expert or genius. A go to person for whatever you need. So this is the fascinating story of why we are GetaGuru.com
eleni here-on the way to home depot our first brainstorm was ‘get THE guru’ but something about it didn’t set well. we were sort of wondering ‘which guru is THE guru’ so the alternate option was of course ‘get A guru’ where it took on a totally different vibe & was (more or less) our philosophy on life.
