Podcast: Some Nerve with Patty Chang Anker

Patty Chang Anker sqCould you become a braver person in 30 minutes?

Patty Chang Anker chronicled her quest to conquer her fears and embrace life—and to inspire others to do the same—in her book Some Nerve: Lessons Learned While Becoming Brave. Drawing on interviews with teachers, therapists, coaches, and clergy, Anker imparts both practical advice and profound wisdom. Through her own journey and the stories of dozens of others who have triumphed over common fears, she conveys with humor and infectious exhilaration the most vital lesson of all: Fear isn’t an end point, but the point of entry to a life of incomparable joy.

She joined us recently for a live teleclass explaining how she went from living under the thumb of her anxieties to taking risks that completely opened up her world.
