Are you looking to challenge yourself in order to take things to the next level in all aspects of your life? Do you often find yourself motivating others but not feeling overly inspired by those around you?
This is a group made specifically for you. We will focus on improving various areas of our lives while being authentic with the struggle that comes along with this. Check out the different activities that we will be daring in:

(WO)MAN IN THE ARENA SPEECH
“It is not the critic who counts; not the woman* who points out how the strong woman* stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the woman* who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends [herself] in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if [she] fails, at least [she] fails daring greatly, so that [her] place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
*man changed to woman
Daring women are women in the “arena” daring to live their best lives. We are working on living authentically and practicing the 10 Guideposts for Wholehearted Living by Brené Brown. We highly recommend that you read the book “Daring Greatly” to get a more in-depth idea about these concepts, but here are the basics:
We strive to be supportive, compassionate and empathic with one another as we go through the trials and tribulations of life. If you are not interested in getting in the “arena” and being real, this is not the group for you.
Daring Women is not a therapy group nor is it a networking group, although self-growth and connection is a byproduct of it.
