What story do you tell yourself about who you are and what you’re capable of?

...And who do the voices telling that story really belong to?

Do they belong to you? Or do they belong to society, your parents, that teacher from 7th grade who rocked pit stains with pride and said you were “too much”

Do they belong to your boss, your family, The Patriarchy, the fancy housewife you guilty-pleasure-watched before bed, or the lifestyle guru you follow on Instagram because she supposedly has her life together? (...But if she had her life together, would she be on Instagram 24/7?)

And is this constant chorus of voices telling the story of a life you’d choose for yourself? 
 

I'M CURIOUS...

If life were a game (it is) and you could choose your own adventure (you can), what does the life you’d choose to live look like?

Even courageous go-getters, badass activists, maverick creatives, high-flying professionals, and rebels live in a world built on other people’s expectations and fear.

(BTW - If you’re a high-achiever and you’re thinking, “Fear is sooo not my problem,” keep reading — this is for you, too. Fear could show up as stress, overwhelm, or even guilt. It’s a sneaky li’l sucker!)

And, hey, look around you:






How to lead. How to wear your Spanx. What to say. What emotions to bury deep, deep down. How to treat your body. How to wash your face. What school to go to. What to study. What career is appropriate for someone with your brains/ brawn/ heart/ temperament/ personality/ gender/ insert-yours-here. 

The list goes on... 

And there are systems, too. Systems that go along with the rules and condition us to think and act a certain way. Rigid frameworks to — theoretically anyway— make us more efficient and promote success. After all, that’s why we have “pipelines to success” like going to the right school to get the right job to sit on the right board, to live in the right apartment and eat at the right restaurants. 

Don’t get us wrong. These things could be great (especially dining at the fab new restaurant in your town!) only IF you choose them for yourself. There’s nothing wrong with choosing the dream house, or casting your eye on the C-Suite. But if you’re only doing it because “it’s what people like me do” or “it’s what others expect” then those nice things become a gilded cage...
 

There are rules everywhere.
For everything

HERE'S THE THING...

Maybe other people’s voices — other people’s needs and expectations — have shaped your reality for longer than you’d like to admit. It might even be hard to distinguish between your voice... and everyone else’s. 

And here’s the thing about cages...

The signs of living in a cage show up in surprisingly similar ways:

Difficulty sleeping. Difficulty prioritizing yourself and your needs. Difficulty letting your guard down. Or if you want to be the BEST at everything, your personal issues could be a major source of frustration and embarrassment you want to “conquer.” Heck, you probably already tried to slay your own dragons (or book an appointment with that new therapist who’s supposedly the best)...













And no amount of #selfcare, meditation, screaming into your pillow, journaling, biking on your Peloton, coaching, yoga, or glasses of Prosecco are going to fix it… unfortunately.

scroll on if you're into it.

Despite doing the work, things could still feel… well... off. Like there’s something missing but you can’t quite put your finger on what it is. Like you’ve got an unshakeable certainty you’re meant for something more. 

Sooner or later, your inner canary will cry out… or it’ll go loco and peck all the other birds in the cage! 

This is not the big, Hollywood kind of Lara-Croft-courage you see in the movies. Unlike extraordinary courage — the kind that shows up when you’re facing life-threatening danger like swimming away from sharks or landing a helicopter in a hurricane — Simple Courage is the day-to-day courage required to take actions that align with who you actually want to be instead of who others expect you to be. 

It helps you face (and deal with) the hurdles standing between the two versions of you battling it out in your head. And it’s how you go:

From being the person who stays silent and never rocks the boat to the one speaking out and speaking up

From squandering hours worrying about what other people — people you don’t even like! — think of you to focusing on what you think of yourself

From working your way up the career ladder for a job you hate to quitting that job to giving yourself the chance to figure out what else is out there for you

From telling yourself that public speaking is for “other people” to taking the podium on that physical (or digital) stage and finally sharing the message that’s seared its way into your heart and soul

From fitting the role others recommended (or forced) you into to re-defining the role you’d like to play in your own damn life for yourself




That key? The way of Simple Courage. 

But, there is a key that can swing the cage door open and finally set you free...

So how do you make Simple Courage a part of you? How do you unlock the cage door, step out and start writing the script to your own life?

Sure. You need to do the work. After all, you are the only one who knows what’s right for you. But courage isn’t just a solitary activity. 

It also doesn’t start with guilting yourself about getting it wrong in the past… or writing off everything you’ve achieved so far because it might not be exactly what your true self wants. 

But it does start with a simple choice: to do the courageous thing — the true to yourself thing — even when it’s hard. 

Especially when it’s hard. 

This means strengthening your courage muscles and getting in the best damn shape of your life. So you can become the bravest person you know.






Well… For one, it doesn’t start with doing it alone. 

And that’s exactly what we are here to help you with

The inclusive community for warriors, badass activists, creatives, bridge-builders, and rebels ready to ditch the cage and choose a new, braver adventure instead.

Ready to become the bravest person you know?

The Collective

INTRODUCING...

JOIN NOW!

Forget about one and done transformations. Simple Courage is all about taking the small steps that help you become you. The you YOU want to be.

That structure needs to serve you. And it needs to come with equal amounts of playfulness, connection, reflection, presence, and curiosity.

So, while we are not coaching — or telling you what to do — this isn’t a “manifest your dreams in your PJs” kind of environment.



Doing big work needs some structure.



Each guide is built like a story about a specific aspect of courage. They reveal some of the reasons you get stuck in repeating patterns — drawn from life, experience and science. Then we add exploration exercises and more stories to look at the month’s theme from every angle. Everything in the guide is designed to help you step into your more courageous self and play with new roles in your life. Think of it like the best damn interactive book you’ll read all month.

Here's what's inside...

MONTHLY CREATIVE
EXPLORATION GUIDES



Stay inspired, supported, and connected with fellow members 24/7 with our community forum. Dig deeper into your own adventure with curated discussions and opportunities to connect inside this private network.

WEEKLY DROP-IN
CIRCLES



At the beginning of the month, you’ll get a calendar with daily prompts full of ideas for ways to explore and connect with the monthly theme. 

DAILY SIMPLE COURAGE PROMPTS



These circles are digital spaces on Zoom where you can meet others on this journey with you and connect intimately with fellow members. We join together in small groups of 10 people, max, to witness each other. To listen. There is no judgement. No criticism. No advice. We won’t be talking as a group either: instead, everyone who wants to will get the chance to share their story and be heard. (Our beta members love the drop-in circles the most!)

COMMUNITY & CONNECTION NETWORK



We won’t just bring people around for a bit of content or a vague interaction. From private weekly podcasts to exclusive guest interviews, you’ll get to connect with the guests as they’ll be around for the whole month and digging deep into our monthly theme.

EXCLUSIVE
CONTENT



You can treat yourself (because Hello! You’re f**king brilliant!) with a booty-shaking dance party in the garden, perhaps, to celebrate the new courageous YOU (clothing optional).

Your Monthly
Spotify Playlist



Hosted by Chief Storyteller, Heather Hubbard, every month. Picture lots of laughter, play, music (we’ve got our own DJ!), special guests, and lots of innovative ways for you to interact with your fellow members.

“This is not a typical group experience. The community that you create through this program is inspirational, never judgmental, and as invested in your transformation as their own.”

DORIS LIN, NEW JERSEY

“You will find yourself surrounded by caring people who want you to succeed. And Simple Courage provides a structure for busy people to take a rare moment to focus on ourselves.”

ANNE HYDORN, CALIFORNIA

"You will be surprised how quickly you feel supported… by how quickly you are able to be vulnerable. And you will learn that you are not alone in many things in this world..."

The perfectly polished go-getting professional who’s felt there’s a “missing piece” but has no idea how to begin figuring out what that is or how to do something about it

The father who wants to take two years off to stay at home with the kids but worries about what his colleagues (or the neighbors!) would say

Are you...

The creative who’s fascinated by business but worries that a formal business degree (or even starting a business) would cramp that creative style and take away from the “starving artist” persona

The activist who wants to run for local political office but worries about how that power and responsibility can affect the mission persona

Or maybe you're somebody else altogether? (Don't let us box you in, boo.)

WhOever you are and wherever you start, Simple Courage can help you take your fledgling dreams and turn them into reality, no matter how big, scary or impossible THEY may seem. 

Consider this your invitation to commit to freeing yourself and others from societal and patriarchal mind-numbing norms and conditions. 

Simple Courage isn’t just a slogan. It’s a mission and a movement.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT...

A step-by-step framework with a predefined start and finish time 

A recipe with exact processes that everyone needs to follow, regardless of background, temperament or personal preference

About showing up and pretending to be fearless while taking action toward things you don’t really want because some “guru” said you should (those of us who are natural rule followers can accidentally fall into this one… even after burning everyone else’s rulebooks)

Another cookie-cutter coaching program. You won’t be told by coaches and fellow members, “You’re not doing it right, try harder!” Yes, advice and feedback certainly has its place, but it can also be annoying as hell when all you want is a place to speak your truth, expose yourself to new ideas and voices, and share your journey WITHOUT one more person giving you well-meaning-but-100%-unsolicited-advice.


It's also not...

Simple Courage is a simple choice that you’ll have to make again and again. But you don’t have to make it alone.
not anymore.

This group will help you take that next step!

“If you feel on the fence, then you know that you need to do something and this group will help you take that next step."

If you are on the fence, jump off!

“If you are on the fence, jump off and into Simple Courage. It will push you to think hard and do work where you most need to do it. (Including places you are not even aware of yet.) The time and effort will be worth it.”

The kind where you get to become more like yourself. With people who are doing the same thing.

The Collective is a community of equals, supporting each other.
A community of warriors, creatives, rebels, and bridge-builders all on their own journey toward courage. 

It’s a place where you can experiment with different versions of you and try them on for size, from the small (what if I am a bright-red-nail-polish person) to the large (what if I go to med-school even though I’m 50?). You can explore and test and be.

It’s a place where your WHOLE self will be fully embraced.
It’s a place where you’re allowed to be ambitious AF and vulnerable in the same breath.

Are you ready to experience
your own transformation?

join now!

It's a place that needs you.
