The Art of Fear with Kristen Ulmer

February 6, 2018

Kristen Ulmer knows a thing or two about fear. She was the world’s reigning most extreme skier for 12 consecutive years! She retired from starting avalanches in 2003 and instead, began creating avalanches in how we deal with fear. Her latest book The Art of Fear deals with exactly that.

Kristen argues that our cultural view of fear is not only wrong, but harmful and in serious need of a paradigm shift. Kristen explains how we must create a new dialogue around our fear. A dialogue that brings it out of the basement and into the light, where it can lead us to newer heights as athletes, entrepreneurs, and high-performing individuals.

This is a must listen for anyone looking to achieve their full potential in life.
