- Speaking -

Thank you for your interest in our work!
We’re glad you’re here.

All of my speaking requests are handled by my good friends at SpeakersOffice. I started working with them almost ten years ago and they’re the best in the business. They are like family.

My speaking availability is very limited. In addition to research, writing, and teaching, I’m working on my own wholehearted life. Living this work means prioritizing time with my family and friends, and creative time.  If I’m not available for your event, our team at SpeakersOffice has many resources and will be able to provide you with stellar options.

If you’re looking for different ways to engage with Dare to Lead and build courage skills in your team or organization, visit our Dare to Lead hub.

Thank you again for visiting.  Stay brave, a little awkward, and always kind.

Welcome to the Wholehearted revolution!

Our revolution is a small, quiet, grassroots movement that starts with each of us saying, “My story matters because I matter.” A movement where we can take to the streets with our messy, imperfect, wild, stretch-marked, wonderful, heartbreaking, grace-filled, and joyful lives. A movement fueled by the freedom that comes when we stop pretending that everything is okay when it isn’t. A call that rises up from our bellies when we find the courage to celebrate those intensely joyful moments even though we’ve convinced ourselves that savoring happiness is inviting disaster.

Revolution might sound a little dramatic, but in this world, choosing authenticity and worthiness is an absolute act of resistance. Choosing to live and love with our whole hearts is an act of defiance. You’re going to confuse, piss-off, and terrify lots of people – including yourself.  One minute you’ll pray that the transformation ends, and the next minute you’ll pray that it never ends. You’ll also wonder how you can feel so brave and so afraid at the same time. At least that’s how I feel most of the time . . . brave, afraid, and very, very alive.

Below are some videos that will give you a sense of the work we’re doing together. Again, so glad you’re here.
