Welcome to the Women In-Depth Podcast! This week I’m delighted to be joined by Laurel Moll, who is a lifestyle writer, dancer, fitness instructor, and co-owner of the inspirational t-shirt company Golden Rhino. Her writing has been featured in The Huffington Post, VitaMix Blog, Quiet Revolution, TinyBuddha, Mind Body Green, and more.
Laurel’s latest book, Following Fear: How I Faced 30 Fears and Learned to Trust the Unknown, is a memoir about how the curious events of the summer of 2013 inspired Laurel to stop following her bliss and start following her fear. This collection of intimate short stories about facing 30 of her biggest fears shares the journey of learning to trust everything that happens—the wins, the heartbreaks, the embarrassments, the deepest disappointments—and to find safety in the unknown.
What you’ll hear in this episode:
- What compelled Laurel to start writing about her experiences of fear
- Laurel’s relationship with fear before she wrote her book
- Fear and new experiences
- Fear and authenticity
- Ways in which we avoid fear and change in our lives
