Overview

Whitney Johnson, popular Harvard Business Review blogger, has a goal: to help us identify and achieve our dreams. Her belief is that we can each achieve greater happiness when focusing both on our dreams and on other people in our lives. In this inspiring book, Johnson directs her attention to teaching women, in particular, a three-step model for personal advancement and happiness. She first encourages us to DARE to boldly step out, to consider disrupting life as we know it. Then she teaches us how to DREAM, to give life to the many possibilities available, whether to start a business, run a marathon, or travel the world. She shows us how to "date" our dreams (no need to commit!) and how to make space for dreams. Finally, Whitney's model brings out the businesswoman in her; she teaches us to DO, to execute our dreams. She showcases the importance of sharing dreams with others to give them life, creating your own "dream team." Rich with real stories of women who have dared to dream, DARE, DREAM, DO offers a practical framework for making remarkable things happen.

In Dare, Dream, Do, Whitney Johnson explains, in manageable, concrete terms, how to identify and pursue the possibilities to build a happier life. It s not always easy to dare, to dream, and to do, and Johnson s book explains not only why but how to take those steps with full confidence and success. Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project

Wow. Right from Whitney's heart directly on to the pages of Dare, Dream, Do. Read this important book today. It will inspire you to become the gatekeeper of your own dreams and take personal control of achieving them. Whitney's passion is compelling. It's worth daring to be great. Saul Kaplan, Founder and Chief Catalyst, Business Innovation Factory


Every woman, regardless of age or profession, should read this book. Through stories of real women, their dreams and their struggles, Johnson's book has created an instant community. What's more, she has opened the door for women to empower themselves to dare, dream and do. —Joanne Wilson, Angel Investor, The Gotham Gal, and Co-Founder of the Women's Entrepreneur Festival

Dare, Dream, Do is filled with great advice and energizing true stories from real women who are bootstrapping their way toward a dream. Pick up this book and you just might find yourself living a life you've only imagined! This should be required reading for anyone with a forgotten wish, a pie–in–the–sky fantasy or a quiet dream hidden in their heart. In other words —everyone. --Barbara Corcoran, NYC Real Estate Mogul and investor on ABC's reality show Shark Tank

We all have dreams; dreams that seize us, consume us, and inspire us to reach for greatness. Yet the clamor of the world conspires to distance us from our dreams, draining them of their potency. In Dare, Dream, Do, Whitney Johnson shows us, through story and practice, how to reclaim our dreams and become as daring as we always imagined we could be. It is a book at once poignant and powerful. — Marcus Buckingham, author of the international best–sellers First, Break All the Rules and Now, Discover Your Strengths

I read Dare, Dream, Do with a highlighter clenched between my teeth and a pad of Post–it notes in my hand. Whitney Johnson has written a book that is hopeful, honest, and beautifully written. Her wisdom combined with the amazing stories make dreaming accessible and practical without diminishing its power or magic.— Brene Brown, Ph.D., LMSW and author of The Gifts of Imperfection

    A few weeks ago when my friend suggested that I read Whitney Johnson's new book Dare, Dream, Do: Remarkable Things Happen When you Dare to Dream I had no idea what I was signing up for. I thought reading this book was little more than a simple favor for a friend. I assumed that it would be an easy, quick read. I assumed that I could write a nice, safe, blog review and then move forward with my life. I was wrong. Dare, Dream, Do has proven to be anything but a quick, easy favor for a friend.

    Dare, Dream, Do has invaded my life and messed with my head.

    Instead of just inspiring a nice, safe blog review, this book and its ideas have engaged my mind and my heart. Suddenly I'm dreaming about my future. I'm dreaming about a career and not just a job. But what's more terrifying is that I'm sharing those dreams with other people. I'm talking about them. Out loud. And just like Whitney promised, remarkable things are happening.

    This book and I met at just the right time in my life and I couldn't be happier about it.

    I think humans are innately creators and dreamers. Somewhere along the
    way, for most of us, we were taught, encouraged, required to push those
    inherent capabilities to the back and obey the status quo (e.g., public
    education). Who says? Where is this written? Nowhere! Whitney asks us
    to stop listening to what the world tells us to conform to – especially
    us women. We have the right, even the imperative to dream. If we
    don’t, who will? So many studies show that kids pay more attention to
    what their parents do than what they say – doesn’t that mean we need to
    free ourselves up to dream? And then to try to make those dreams
    reality? If we don’t, how will the next generation learn to? Given our
    economic and social situation today, we must (re-) learn to dream - to
    dream big, unconventionally, intentionally and based on integrity.
    Three quotes had the biggest impact on me in Dare, Dream, Do: • “The
    only safe harbor is our convictions…because it ensures we are honest to
    our core values.”: at a fundamental level, all we have, the only thing
    that cannot be taken away, is our core set of values. We can lose our
    ‘stuff’, we can even lose those we love – but no one, unless we let
    them, can take away our convictions – and that is what we must build our
    dreams upon; it is the only way to assure our dreams are authentic and
    valuable; • “Sometimes we set out to be competent. At other times our
    competence is simply the unintended consequence of doing what needs to
    be done…”: how many times do we undermine our dreams by thinking we
    don't have the required skills, talents, experiences? Think about it –
    how many entrepreneurs were experts in their fields when they started?
    Not many – but they had a burning passion they needed to fulfill – and
    that’s a critical competency – unswerving passion; • “Hell is a place
    where nothing connects with nothing.” T. S. Eliot commenting on Dante’s
    “Inferno”: for me, this is the definition of hell. Our dreams bring
    people, real needs and solutions together – our dreams can connect dots
    that many thought could never be connected. Whitney’s book is divided
    into three parts: 1) Dare – go for it, suspend disbelief and dare to
    dream – and dream big; 2) Dream – find your dream – perhaps it’s been
    suppressed, perhaps it needs to be discovered, but find it; and 3) Do it
    – stop rationalizing why you can’t and start telling yourself why you
    can. For many, none of this is easy and for some it can be quite
    scary. That’s why Whitney provides the framework for making dreams come
    true – no matter how big, how small, how complex, how simple, but all
    impactful. Read the book, take notes, start a plan….and Dream.
