It’s time to get into
The Courage Habit.


Here’s the thing: no one is born courageous.

You can start living
a more courageous life, by creating
more courageous habits.

Courage isn’t who you are; it’s what you’re willing to practice.

There’s a brain-based science to how we create the habits that either cause us to feel hesitant, stuck, or full of self-doubt–or that lead to our joy, happiness, and success.

With THE COURAGE HABIT, you’ll learn how to recognize your fear-based habits that have been hiding in plain sight, and start creating courageous habits that up your joy factor, bring greater connection, and empower you to be a force for good in the world.


The Courage Habit is a four-part process for behavioral change. It harnesses how your brain forms (and breaks) habits to identify the habits that hold you back, so that you can start creating habits that lead to more confidence, resilience, and joy.

There’s no guru mentality, here. Everyone feels fear or doubt in some way or another. Not everyone decides to do something about it. Amplifying your courage puts you in the driver’s seat of your life, making it easier to get real, get connected, make better decisions, and start going after what you (truly) want.
