I’m Kate Swoboda. I’m a life coach, Director of a life coach certification program, and author of THE COURAGE HABIT.
I help people to identify old, fear-based habits that have kept them stuck for (way) too long, and start creating courageous habits. When you start living the courage habit, you’ll stop waiting to  “feel” courageous, and start taking action to prioritize what you truly  want. Read more…



Praised by best-selling authors Daniel Pink, Susan Piver, Sarah Knight, and more, THE COURAGE HABIT combines the science of courage with the neuropsychology of habit-formation, teaching you how to create courageous habits that add up to a more courageous life.

“Do you feel the need for a change in your life — a new job, a new purpose? Don’t let fear hold you back. You too can find the courage to change with the wisdom collected by Kate Swoboda in this helpful, cheerful, and delightfully readable book.” –Daniel Pink, New York Times best-selling author of DRIVE and A WHOLE NEW MIND

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… 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"

“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 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.”

choose your teachers with care

Years ago, I was in a workshop lead by a teacher who I knew to be going through a tough time, personally. She was talking about how we are who we are, and how we do a disservice to ourselves when we try to be people we are not. I listened, thinking, “Totally helpful....
