An Instant New York Times Bestseller

Luvvie Ajayi Jones is known for her trademark wit, warmth, and truth-telling. But even she’s been challenged by fear. She’s not alone. We’re all afraid. We’re afraid of asking for what we want because we’re afraid of hearing "no." We’re afraid of leaving behind the known for the unknown. But in order to do the things that will truly change our lives, we have to become professional troublemakers: people who are committed to not letting fear talk them out of the things they need to do or say to live free. This book is about how to live boldly in spite of all the reasons we have to cower.
