lifestyle | business | productivity | motivation 


And just like you, I wear lots of different hats.  

I’m a New York Times bestselling author, an entrepreneur, and product creator. I'm also a wife and mom, a daughter, sister and friend, and a depression survivor. And, if I'm being completely honest, a lot of the time, I am one hot mess! 

But I've also learned that in life, there are no mistakes, only lessons, and that all the good stuff comes through the struggle, and my greatest mission is to help you create a life you love by providing the tools, resources, and motivation to help you get there.

Do you ever feel like you are standing on the sidelines of your own life?

Afraid to take that next step, afraid to wholeheartedly pursue your biggest goals and dreams, or afraid to admit, even to yourself, (much less anyone else) that something might just be missing? 

Maybe you've spent so much time taking care of the people around you that you've lost yourself in the process. Maybe you're ready for a change, but scared of making a mistake. Maybe you just feel like there is just too much to do and never enough time to get it all done. Maybe you're not even sure what it is that you want, you just know that where you are at right now doesn't feel like quite enough. 

And if any of this sounds like you, I'm here to tell you that you're in the right place.

What would you do if fear no longer stood in your way?

Because courage doesn’t mean we are never afraid, courage is simply action in the face of fear. It is putting one foot in front of the other, even when we’re not quite sure where the path will lead us.  

The Do It Scared™ podcast is about taking the steps that will help you move past your fear and create a life you love. It is equal parts inspiration and tough love, complete with practical, easy-to-implement tips and interviews with some incredible people who have dared to do it scared in their own lives.
