“When opportunity doesn't knock, there are ways to build a door.”

Adam Grant

“Courage can be taught, developed and measured. All it requires is a commitment to doing bold work, having tough conversations and showing up with our whole hearts. Easy? No. Choosing courage over comfort is not easy. Worth it? Always. We want to be brave with our lives and work. It's why we're here.”

Brené Brown
