Undaunted will inspire you to move past your fears and defy the doubters. It doesn’t matter whether you feel confident; it matters what you actually do.

Undaunted is a rare opportunity to gain insights and proven advice unlike anything you’ll find in the conventional business press. I’ve combined real stories from my life with observations that might just change how you think about your own.

Whether you want to get healthy, start a company, break an addiction, find a new career or just grow in life, Undaunted will inspire you to just go for it and help you find the courage to get there.

My secret? Be Undaunted. Deal with your fears. Move forward despite uncertainty. Turn criticism into motivation. Just go for it!

Setbacks will come, but I’ll show you that you can learn from failures and frustrations and keep advancing toward your true purpose.

What if not having “the right” credentials or vast industry experience is the secret to making things happen? And what if we didn’t let our fear of failure stop us?

Part autobiography, part business memoir and lots of insights on self-development, Undaunted offers stories that impart lessons that any reader can apply to their own path. This isn’t about quick fixes. Undaunted focuses on long-term success, showing you how to take control of breaking down barriers and moving forward.

Undaunted won’t solve your problems and challenges. You will. But it will help you see through other’s experiences that it’s possible to do so.

Accept your fears, but decide to be Undaunted.
