Stand Up, Create, & Lead. Tara Moore will teach you to Play Big. CLICK HERE to get started now!. "Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead" by Tara Mohr

On Today’s Show

Author Tara Mohr reminds us that, when we are starting to play bigger in our lives or careers, we will have to make some courageous decisions in line with our dreams and aspirations. And that’s when fear is going to come knocking. When we try to eliminate fear or somehow leapfrog over our fear that sets up unrealistic expectations and is unfair to ourselves.

Instead, we want to get wise about what fear is, and what do we do when it comes up. Tara gives us a primer on the two kinds of fear in our lives and gives us the tools to identify what kind of fear we are facing.
