Fearlessness as a Daily Practice

"Feel the fear and do it anyway" is an oft-quoted mantra, but anyone who's done this in practice finds that it takes quite a lot of energy to sustain. What if instead of "pushing" and "fighting" you were able to approach the challenges of business and life with ease? The practice of fearlessness allows you to instead use that energy to create forward action. Together, we will examine the role of fear in your life and explore the practices that will allow you to move toward being truly fearless.
