Ever wanted to be brave and do “your thing”, only to be sucked into the undertow of self-doubt?

Using humour as her shield and honesty as her sword, 40-something single mum Belle Lockerby embarks on a “Year of Bravery” to become a worthiness warrior.

With heart-wrenching vulnerability, Belle powerfully weaves together the many life traumas and tragedies (the least of which is the state of her underwear drawer) to turn her pain into purpose, seeking out love, life and laughs, even when she finds herself in the shit − literally.

Belle’s intensely personal story is the ultimate example of being brave, stepping away from just existing and moving forward into living with your “geez I’d really love a pedicure” feet to discover the warrior in you.

If you’ve been knocked down by life’s storms, Belle’s here to remind us that we are worthy of being fighters for AND lovers of ourselves.

Aren’t we all awkwardly brave in one way or another anyway?

About the Author

Belle Lockerby lives and breathes change - it's awkward, it's rife with an arsenal of "adversity wedgies", and it takes belief and courage to meet it head on. She knows firsthand the importance of being brave in the face of modern-day overwhelm and the need for a serve of honesty with a side of humour to make it through.

Having coached over 1000 people from all walks of life to build their confidence, she chose to share her personal journey in her literary debut Awkward is the New Brave. Belle will tell you she is an ordinary human, yet in her heart and soul she is a worthiness warrior. Her passion in life is for everyone to be brave enough to be who they really are, awkward enough to try out things that are hard, new and uncomfortable, and kind enough to become the safe space for others doing the same.

As the creator of programs such as Mumpreneur 101, Power Up and Leverage, Belle thrives on enabling others to create change. Whether you meet her in real life or in her first book, 40-something single mum Belle becomes your bravery bestie, encouraging you to find your own worthiness warrior, with wit, warmth and rawness as she candidly reveals her story of getting back up after some heartbreaking wipeouts in her life.

Get ready to be surprised as Belle takes you along a painful but purposeful path of discovery. Laugh with her as she flops on her face only to get back up again. She openly shares some of her deepest secrets to remind you that we are all awkwardly brave in one way or another.

Awkward is the New Brave will challenge you to embrace life with bravery and confidence, and to have those awkward conversations (with your inner voice, or others) you've been avoiding. Why not jump onto social media to give her a follow or do the modern day pen-pal thing and sign up to become a bravery warrior.
