I don’t think it’s possible for me to be more excited to share today’s Wonder-Woman extraordinaire (and all of her immense wisdom) with you...

Amber Rae has been called "The Brené Brown of Wonder” by Mind Body Green and a “Millennial Motivator” by Fortune. Amber is an author, artist, and speaker whose work invites you to live your truth, befriend your emotions, and express your gifts. Her writing blends raw, personal storytelling with actionable aha! moments, and has reached over 5 million people in 195 countries. Her public art has spread to more than twenty countries, and she's spoken to and collaborated with brands like Kate Spade, Apple, Amazon, Lululemon, and Unilever. She's been featured in The New York Times, TIME, Fast Company, BBC, ABC World News, Tim Ferriss's blog, and more.

I invite you to turn all distractions on “do not disturb” mode, grab a pen + paper, and get ready for some serious note taking (I took SIX pages!), while Amber and I go way beneath the surface to talk all things wonder, authenticity and the beautiful process of coming home to ourselves.
