Book Study: Brave, Not Perfect: Fear Less, Fail More, and Live Bolder

Tuesdays July 2 & 9 6-7:30 pm


Explore a book that will tempt you into a new way of being. Imagine if you lived without the fear of not being good enough… If you didn’t care how your life looked on Facebook or worry about what total strangers thought of you. Imagine if you could stop beating yourself up for tiny mistakes. What if, in every decision you faced, you took the bolder path? Author Reshma Saujani says, “as girls, we were taught to play it safe. We grew up to be women who are afraid to fail.” Perfection may set us on a path that feels safe, but bravery leads us to the path we’re authentically meant to follow. Join inspiring life coach, Monique Piper, for a transformative book study that will help you let go of the need for perfection & make bravery a lifelong habit.


Facilitated by Monique Moliere Piper, M.A., a speaker, bestselling author and certified professional coach.
