One of my goals with Good Life Project™ is to shine equal light on the journeys of extraordinary women.
This week’s guest really blew me away, in part because because of her incredible courage in embracing something so many others experience as anywhere from life-stifling to disabling with incredible grace, compassion and humor.
But also because of her willingness to go very public, to reveal her vulnerability and, in doing, so inspire so many others to embrace the gift in their shared challenge.
Her quest to find a “cure” led her on a year long journey, over 100 interviews with some of the most famous people who stutter, from former GE CEO, Jack Welch, to actor, Emily Blunt.
As I share in the notes to this episode over at Good Life Project:
What she’d discover along her quest would surprise and, inevitably, release her. It wasn’t so much a cure, but something far more transformative. Something that would lead her to embrace her stutter as, in her words, “the best part of me.”
Something that would open her vulnerability and inspire her to return to a passion for writing and eventually pen and sell her forthcoming book, Out With It: How Stuttering Helped Me Find My Voice (due out in Sprint 2013).
And, remember, as of last week, if you’d like to listen to an audio mp3 version instead of watch the video, just subscribe to the GLP email updates and you’ll get an instant link to the private mp3 download vault.
