About Compounding Courage
Hi! I’m Julie. Let me tell you a little story about how this all began.
Compounding Courage was born of my angst over the frustrating lack of courage in my personal and professional relationships, and my community.
It started when I became painfully aware of the limiting beliefs holding me back - “I am not educated enough.” “I’m not comfortable speaking in front to a crowd.” By examining the “hustle” running in my head and learning how to shift my mindset, I found the ability to free myself from the bullshit I had been taught, and started living a happier life and reaching new potential.
Disclaimer: this didn’t happen overnight.
This shift in my thinking allowed me to see just how many other people were giving up their voice and power to their fear of vulnerability and lack of trust. Again, I was frustrated. Important and difficult conversations were left unattended resulting in serious consequences. I firmly believed we could positively impact our homes, communities, and workplaces if we started to address the dysfunctional culture of fear. A culture that was not only holding us all back, but was also putting future generations at risk.
So what did I do about it?
Using my own stories and vulnerabilities, I started connected with others. These connections revealed how starved women were for authentic leadership and conversations about real life. When I shared my unique experiences, friends and family members would reach out to tell me how I inspired them to take a small, brave step in their own lives. Their notes and messages re-inspired me to continue to share my stories of fear, disappointment, failure—basically life. For years, I was compounding courage one friend, blog, or social media post at a time.
I knew I had to do more…
After my cousin took his own life in the spring of 2018, I felt compelled to level up my one-off Facebook posts and the individual notes of inspiration. I knew I needed to go bigger and I needed help to get there. A couple of strong women in my community trusted my vision and together the three of us developed Compounding Courage.
So what do we do?
We are committed to providing safe and supportive spaces for people who want to elevate their lives and the lives of others with courage. Our personal growth and leadership development programs bring people together to see limiting beliefs, find their potential and learn how courage can help them create an extraordinary life. Our first live workshop, What If, was created to give women the lift and language needed to take the first (and often the hardest) step toward living a more fulfilling life by getting curious about who they are and what they want to do on their unique journey.
