In honor of this wonderful holiday season, I’m happy to share my “Special Holiday Selections” for Finding Brave!  These episodes offer what I hope you’ll find to be compelling and helpful messages that are great for exploring this time of year.  I hope you find this episode, the very first episode of this podcast, instrumental in developing your strength, commitment and courage to make 2020 just what you want it to be.

In this first episode of Finding Brave, Kathy shares her deeply personal story about how she embarked on “Finding Brave” in her own life, and why mustering more bravery and courage is a vital endeavor for men and women around the world who want to live the highest version of themselves and reach their highest, most joyful potential.

She defines #FINDINGBRAVE as this: Recognizing — and courageously leveraging — what you’re made of as a human and spiritual being, and mustering the commitment, passion and courage to draw on all that you are to create the life you dream of, through the fear and the pain.

And she offers 10 essential ways to find brave in your life, with specific tips to get moving on your brave path.
