This is your courage speaking. It’s time to put your fear in its place and make it behave.

No more surrendering to that whiny little voice telling you that you can’t do what you dream of or be who you want to be. It’s time to show the world―and YOU―what you’re made of. No matter what goal you’re after―creating new art, traveling the world, or standing up to someone who’s been putting you down―you’ll find your Courage in this inspirational book to help you discover who you are and who you can become.

So, go ahead, girl. Get your side-eye ready.
You’ve got things to do, and your fear is not going to stop you.
