Uncommon Courage is an invitation to be your courageous best self every day. It’s also an antidote to the overwhelm, fear, and rage rolling around the world.
This book opens a path to inner contentment, peace, and happiness, and a path to meaningful action. It brings you an opportunity to reflect. What if there was another way? What if we could do something about the bigger issues facing our world? What if we could make meaningful change? Well, we can. Despite today’s turmoil—which we can utilize as a springboard to action—a transformational journey is possible for all of us.
Uncommon Courage is as practical, funny, and grounded in optimism as Andrea herself, and it’s your toolkit for a deep-dive journey towards joy, purpose, and the kind of inner transformation that will make a real difference in the world we all share.
In this book, you will discover 108 interlinking strategies to shift your thinking, improve your mood, and lighten your heart. This book helps you take on anger, parenting, climate change, self-awareness, and career change. Some of the stories are funny, while others may lovingly push your buttons. Living a full life takes courage and this book is designed to help you build yours.
Read it, reflect, laugh, and enjoy.

About the Author
Having spent half her life living in countries other than her own, Australian born and bred Andrea T Edwards can't get enough of Planet Earth - or the people on it. For sure, there are bad apples along the way, but Andrea focuses on the many - humans of all colour, race and creed - to unite and create a better world for all of us. Why? Because humanity is awesome!
Professionally, as The Digital Conversationalist, Andrea is an unconventional communications professional, who is passionate and determined to help everyone step into their voice so they can own their future. People Power rules and Andrea's goal is to encourage awesome people everywhere to claim our voice, because collectively, we are beyond powerful, and we can create the change we want.
Yes, it is a world gone mad - across business and more broadly, society - so Andrea's big goal is to help everyone understand how they can embrace the digital stage with integrity at the heart of their presence.
A globally award-winning B2B communications professional, Andrea works with the world's largest companies on the transformation needed within to maximize business growth in our digital future. A passionate communications evangelist and expert in social leadership, content marketing, and employee advocacy, Andrea is all about helping businesses understand how they can empower employees to delight customers, grow personal career opportunities and build brand success.
But she has many dimensions. A warrior for Mother Earth, Andrea fights for businesses to step up and lead the offensive to avoid the worst of climate catastrophe, as well as to build equal and diverse businesses that benefit all, and she is driven to make empathy and compassion the critical driving force in the world today.
Apart from Australia, Andrea has lived in Europe, North America and has been loving Asia since 2003 - living in both Singapore and Thailand. She walks her talk consistently as a certified professional speaker (CSP), an overly enthusiastic blogger, best-selling author, and content marketing/social leadership evangelist. She genuinely loves empowering others to step into all opportunities in the digital space.
Always Australian at heart, Andrea is married to a magnificent Englishman, has two rambunctious sons, and her pleasure will always be travelling and sharing the beauty of our world, as well as having a laugh with like-minded people. You can't take life too seriously, after all.
