Ever since I was a kid, I've always believed in a voice that's been with us long before we were born. It's a voice that gives us permission to believe that we are bigger than any challenge. Call it what you will: God, source, energy or gut - point is, this voice, whether we know it or not, is who we really are. It's our authentic self beyond all of life's conditioning. It took me a while to make sense of the voice, but as I look back and connect the dots, I can see what happened when I listened to the voice and when I didn't. In doing so, it helped me realize my own infinite power. It has helped me achieve some pretty amazing things, from starting my own company to launching a non-profit, to inspiring my two daughters to fearlessly take on their own challenges. It all centers around a very simple philosophy called Brave.
Brave is not about charging blindly into the fray or jumping out of an airplane. It's about having the courage to be who you are and living that truth in business and life. When you embrace your truth, you realize your purpose.
My purpose is to help as many people and brands awaken their authentic voice and in doing so realize what they've known all along: that we are all Brave and are capable of overcoming any obstacle and achieving greatness. When we realize this, our inner and outer growth become one in the same.
