Championing your bold moves
For those who dare to dream
Welcome to the corner of the internet devoted to helping you be bold.
I started the Bold Moves: How Did You Know? podcast to inspire you to take BOLD action to pursue your greatest dreams. It’s based on a hypothesis and a premise. The hypothesis? That people feel a deeper sense of life fulfillment and satisfaction when they make bold moves. The premise? That most people who have big dreams don’t know where—or how—to start.
Through the podcast, I’m introducing you to normal people with extraordinary lives who can expand your vision of what’s possible. They’re curious, courageous, decisive, and unafraid to test out the waters to move closer to their dreams. You’ll learn that chasing your dreams is a series of mini actions that all add up to living a life by your own design. Along the way, I also talk to experts who will help you discover more about yourself. Because with more inner knowing, you’re able to define your purpose leading you to your greatest dreams.
Ultimately, being bold is different for everyone—and by the way, it’s not always about a grand pursuit, it can be a small, but meaningful, step too.
Here, you’ll find a host of resources to help you explore the concept of what being bold means to you and practice building the traits of bold people so you can start living the life that is most meaningful to you.
