If you’re so exhausted and overwhelmed by your status quo that you can’t even figure out a way to add GOOD things into your life, you need this weekly podcast. Hosts Betsy & Warren Talbot know how to remove what's not working so you can have more of what you love.

Being brave does not require you to don tights and a cape (though if you do please send pictures). Instead, bravery is something we all possess when we step outside our comfort zones and push ourselves to try something new. In this podcast we talk about bravery how to give yourself permission to go after what you want most in life.

We are excited to be joined by best-selling author and superhero Chris Brogan.  We discuss the concept of “borrowing bravery” from those around us and learning to go forward in spite of our fears. Chris provides his insights into how Confidence, Acceptance, Permission and Execution (CAPE) can help move you to taking action towards your dreams.

Chris’ book, It’s Not About the Tights, provides insights into how you can be more brave in your life. When Chris is not out fighting crime in his mask and cape, he can be found online at ChrisBrogan.com.
