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.

“When a mistake happens, don't beat yourself up. You didn't have all the information. But now how do you solve for that problem and move on and continue to make those bold moves? Don't let that stop you from making your next bold move. Just step back and take stock of what's happened, and try not to repeat that.” ~Natalie Greenwood, Senior Principal Advisor, Informatica, episode 16

“Making that bold move does, even if it doesn't go 100% the way that you think, it still gives you that confidence that you can always look back and say, 'I did that. And I'm proud of myself for doing that.” ~Matt Cross, Co-Founder of Harvest Chocolate

"What is my story? I don't have a story, and that's where the soul-searching began. What is my story going to be? Personally and professionally? I didn't know what that was yet. So I was listening to the podcast, listening to other people's stories getting inspiration, and hiring a career coach. That was the work that I felt like I needed to do on myself, to clear my head and see a forward path." ~Carli Sidoti, Founder of Buttoned Up Consulting

"A bold move is the idea of authenticity and doing things because I want to do them and that they inspire and ignite me rather than what society thinks of as success." ~Courtney King, Partner of The King + Hamilton Group

“I have to put me first. It’s as simple as that. The more we do that for ourselves, the more we have to give to our loved ones, our jobs, our communities.” ~Jenna Banks, Entrepreneur and Author of "I Love Me More," ep.19

“It’s amazing how little what I do has to do with fashion. It’s about helping women find their brand and giving them the tools they need to be able to use that brand to achieve success. Whatever success looks like for them.” ~Eileen Nebhut, Founder of Venus Rising, episode 17

“Self-doubt comes into play for artists quite a bit and the remedy for that is discipline. It’s in the work, once it gets going and building, that’s the momentum. You have to start and you can only start if you step up to the easel.” ~Seth Ruggles Hiler, Artist, episode 18 

“Whether you do it quietly, loudly, as a perfectionist or fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants person, I don’t care how you do it, but turning up the volume on who you are as a person, making yourself a person of substance, and being assured of who you are, which is the core of being bold, is going to piss people off and that is not your problem.” ~Michelle Morgan, Co-Founder, Sharpen Partners, episode 21

“It doesn’t have to be so hard–let it be easy. The concept of let it be easy is being able to receive help and being able to ask for help. It’s ok to lay the armor down." ~Allison Hare, Podcast Host of Late Learner, ep. 22

"My story started when I was 50 years old; I’m 61 now. I lived half my life before I knew I was capable of telling stories, writing, sharing my wisdom, getting up on stage. I would have never done those things before [my diagnosis]. I really want to impart to have a look-see inside of you and plan your next bold move and take the little steps towards it." ~Julie Randell, Author of Patient 71, episode 23

"One of the things I learned in scaling The Riveter very quickly and coming from  a background as a lawyer where I hadn't been on teams and I hadn't managed people is that your best use is the one you're best at, and you should ask for help in all the things you're not best at to give you the time to do the things you're best at or where you're most needed," Amy Nelson, Founder of The Riveter
