BOOK DESCRIPTON

SHORT BOOK DESCRIPTION

If your fear has a voice … why shouldn’t your courage? In this illustrated, pocket-size book of 100 wittily candid quotes, national speaker and mentor Candace Doby gives courage a voice worth listening to. It’s sometimes sweet … and sometimes shady — but it’s always rooting for you to shine. 

 

LONGER BOOK DESCRIPTION

Wittily candid quotes from the imaginary mouth of courage, delivered as a pocket-size book to help contemporary readers check their fear and do their thing; in paperback with a soft-touch cover that invites them to pick it up and read it again and again.

If your fear has a voice … why shouldn’t your courage? National speaker, mentor, and “Corporate America Dropout” Candace Doby answers that question with her first book, If Courage Could Talk. The illustrated quote book draws upon popular culture to give courage a voice worth listening to. It’s sometimes sweet … and sometimes shady — but it’s always rooting for you to shine. 

If Courage Could Talk readily questions readers’ self-doubt and limiting beliefs through 100 quotes of equal parts truth, love and shade to inspire them to check their fear and pursue their goals. With its lighthearted attitude and unique perspective, it simultaneously offers a compelling, counter voice to the one keeping them stuck and an entry point into intentional conversations about conjuring their own courage. 

This pocket-size publication is broken down into four chapters to help guide readers through courage’s commentary. Each chapter ends with note pages, giving them literal and figurative space to tend to the ideas and thoughts that surface between each page.
