Uncommon Courageis an invitation to be your courageous best self every day. It's also an antidote to the overwhelm, fear, and rage rolling around the world.

This book opens a path to inner contentment, peace, and happiness, and a path to meaningful action. It brings you an opportunity to reflect. What if there was another way? What if we could do something about the bigger issues facing our world? What if we could make meaningful change? Well, we can. Despite today's turmoil-which we can utilize as a springboard to action-a transformational journey is possible for all of us.

Uncommon Courage is as practical, funny, and grounded in optimism as Andrea herself, and it's your toolkit for a deep-dive journey towards joy, purpose, and the kind of inner transformation that will make a real difference in the world we all share.

In this book, you will discover 108 interlinking strategies to shift your thinking, improve your mood, and lighten your heart. This book helps you take on anger, parenting, climate change, self-awareness, and career change. Some of the stories are funny, while others may lovingly push your buttons. Living a full life takes courage and this book is designed to help you build yours.

Read it, reflect, laugh, and enjoy.
