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

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
