Worlds are changed because of people who are willing and brave enough to dream. Most people get that, but if you truly want to be a world-changing leader, you must also commit to a lifelong journey of constantly having to work on, grow, and develop yourself.
Kristen Knowles, President of Brave Leaders Group, is an example of profound courage in action. Having been exposed to abuse and suicide and overcome betrayal, failure, and rejection, Kristen had plenty of opportunity to quit, or step back, but instead chose to step forward.

“Today, I am grateful for all of these experiences and these failures because they led me on a journey— a path to greater leadership, to discover who I am and my purpose, to face my fears, and taught me how to cultivate meaningful relationships. This path helped shape me and I learned what it looks like to have a life with purpose, to lead with purpose, and how to have fulfillment in every area of my life. I overcame betrayal, failure, disappointment, rejection, and everything the world had thrown at me, and you can too. I personally overcame all of those challenges to discover the path that leads to a life of purpose, fulfillment, and connection. I invite you on the journey of a lifetime—to live full of purpose. Will you join me?” - Kristen Knowles
