A few things people are saying about THE COURAGE HABIT…

“THE COURAGE HABIT combines the latest research into what creates genuine change with the spiritual view that fear is a gateway to fearlessness. Drawing on her experience coaching clients, personal stories, doable (non-silly) exercises, and her ever-present warmth, this book teaches you the four key habits to face what is holding you back and live your most courageous life.”

Susan Piver, author of "Start Here Now: An Open-Hearted Guide to the Path and Practice of Meditation"

“If there’s anything I’ve learned and taken to heart in the last few years, it’s that we only have one life to live and we could all stand to spend more time on what makes us happy and less time feeling like we’re about to implode from anxiety, shame, guilt, and fear. THE COURAGE HABIT is a great reminder that YOU control your destiny and YOU have the power to make changes from the inside out—to have the life you want, need, and deserve.”

Sarah Knight, New York Times bestselling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck and Get Your Sh*t Together

“THE COURAGE HABIT is a definitive guide to your new understanding of fear and courage and what they really are, and how they can both be reshaped to support the life you actually want to live. THE COURAGE HABIT will help you to stop trying to be “fearless,” and start creating something deeper and richer for your life: living from a place of courage. And what that will produce for your life is truly revelatory.”
