Co-Founder, I-Fearless

http://www.i-fearless.com

I am a transformational author, speaker and leader, dedicated to helping people overcome the anxieties, worries and self-doubts that keep us all from achieving our highest potential.

Fed up with the fear, anxiety and self-doubt that got in the way of the life I wanted to live I set out to find a better way. Now I share what I've learned through my books, workshops, keynotes and blogs.

I'm a provocative, inspiring and disruptive writer, speaker and change agent. I make hard topics accessible and help people enjoy the expansion of their comfort zones. I firmly believe that your parachute can’t open till after you’ve jumped out of the plane.
