Fast forward to 2019. Everything was going well. More than well. I had taken equity in a tech start up - that I couldn’t have been prouder to be working on. But things didn’t go to plan. Before I knew it I was experiencing burnout on a level that scared the pants off me.
I came into lockdown exhausted, upset and feeling very uncertain about my future. Call On Courage is the result of me trying to make sense of a lot of confusing stuff. The only things I was sure of - being courageous plays out well & you can make work that matters.

It’s the single thread that will open doors, draw in connections and lead to a fulfilled and creative life. It’s a wonderful and rewarding character trait to cultivate. I hope some of the stories you read on here will inspire you to become more fearless.
I’m not naturally courageous. I’ve had to cultivate it. I know hearing other people’s stories - especially when they’re venturing out creatively - has helped me so much. I’m lucky enough to know many courageous friends and people I’ve worked alongside over the years.
