Permission Granted to Face Your Fears, with Bethany Howard

“I didn’t think I could have the time of my life and be in over my head at the same time.”

Bethany Howard had an idea for a book, but there was always something holding her back.  Until one day, she just went for it. “There weren’t good enough reasons to say no to this. Like it felt right. It felt like the next best step for me. And so I just said, why not? And I just decided to make it happen.”  That book is now an inspiration for so many who need encouragement (and permission) to excel.
