Hi Darester, I'm Lu Ann!

Author, Speaker and Dare Specialist

To say we’re living in challenging times is an understatement. We’ve all been challenged by the pandemic and learning new ways to work, communicate and engage.


It’s easy to get overwhelmed by change and feel like somehow you’ve lost your best self. I know because I've been stuck before, too.

But, I went on a journey that changed everything. I did one new thing, every day, for a year.

The lessons learned are in my book, "I Dare Me," are more relevant now than ever before. That is why today, I am on a mission to help as many people and organizations as I can to dare themselves and “do the new."

Imperfection is the road to reinvention.

Dare to do the new in person or on zoom. We can dare in person or online!
