The past year has been challenging. We hope we have turned the corner and can begin to enjoy a fuller life. As we open up, let’s open up to the courage to explore life in a more robust, fulfilling way. Let’s step out of of comfort zone. Let’s courageously care our way to a more meaningful life.
On our way, let’s pay attention to what gives us courage, what helps us keep our courage and what we can accomplish with courage. You’ll also be able to turn these insights into a proposal to present at our upcoming virtual conference, The Caring Conference, which will take place November 5, 2021. The conference theme is Our Courageous Acts.
Our virtual event in April 2021, The Caring Conference: Our Resilient Spirit was a hit! Attendees said:
"This was the Best Conference that I have been to !!!!”
"Great conference! Thanks to all presenters for sharing your insight and knowledge. Lots of food for thought! So helpful."
"This was a wonderful experience. Thank you."
You can watch the archives of the April conference after joining our community.
You’ll want to join us if you want to be connected to support and want to turn your courageous into wisdom you share with others. Your wisdom can become your conference presentation or artwork or photography. You also write your book, start your podcast, or begin a video show. You also can start dating, launch a new business or decide to find your good health.
Denise M. Brown hosts our community. She launched her first online community in 1996 and has been supporting individuals through difficult times since 1990. She regularly organizes and hosts national conferences and in-person virtual events. She completed life coach training in 2004 and uses the skills she learned to share encouraging words and comforting perspectives. Learn more about Denise.
Rick Tamlyn, Denise’s business coach, regularly says, “The mess becomes your message.” What challenges you during your life becomes the content about your life you use to help others. In other words, when you have a tough day, you’ve just added another chapter to your book. When we can look at difficult times from a distance, we can learn more about how we cope. What we learn becomes what we can teach through presentations, books and training programs.
Denise believes that support leads to courage which creates a story that others will want to hear. She also knows that courage creates more and more opportunities. When we have opportunities, we have a future.
We so look forward to connecting with you!
(Please note: You’ll want to join us if you believe in safe practices within your neighborhood, like wearing a mask and practicing social distancing.)
We're here to support you as create your courageous acts and to encourage you as you develop a presentation or workshop, the outline for your book or an idea for a podcast. Keeping us posted on your progress will inspire us in our initiative. Our real-life experiences become our classroom from we learn what works. Our community becomes the lunchroom and dinner table where we gather to compare notes and talk out ideas. Our conference becomes the stage for to present and share your work. In addition to workshops and sessions, our conference will include an art show and a word show.
With courage comes doubts and worries and stress. We often feel these difficult emotions silently. We don’t want to burden our family members or friends so plow through the problems. We also can find it difficult to connect with others who understand our stress. We all deserve an opportunity to vent our frustrations and express our worries. When you join us, you can.
In our community, you can share updates, pose questions, write blog posts, and connect with us in our monthly member and Twitter chats. You can download our app (see below) in order to keep us posted when you can. Our app becomes your safe place, a space that’s just for you to share honestly about your day.
You also can join our Three Positives group, which prompts you to notice three positives in your day, and our special 30-day challenges like Be Courageous in July and our Be Better in August.
You can get feedback from us about your presentation proposal you’ll submit for a chance to speak at our upcoming conference, The Caring Conference. When others in your network join us through your invitation, you’ll be rewarded with time with Denise to discuss your presentation idea.
Finally, you can receive encouragement as you work through your creative process. You can show us your creation in progress so we can cheer you on to finish.
Doubt will steal our courage. Our community will help you stay brave. Our wisdom gained will inspire us.
We’re like a think tank focused on better crafting courage. How does an individual and a community keep the energy that courage requires? How does an individual committed to supporting others impact a community? How does a community focused on creating and sharing good work change the world?
Our insights will become our sessions during The Caring Conference, a special virtual event taking place on November 5, 2021. In addition, we’ll host an art show and word show during our conference.
We need thinkers and creators and believers just like you to join us.
