This week, we’re hearing from Lisa Sugarman, Amanda Rowe, Alison Donaghey, Jen Dary, Carrie Sharpe, Heather Vickery & Katie Rössler as they answer the question: What do you want to teach your kids about living outside their comfort zones and trying new things?

Listen to guests: 


“The best things in our life are almost always found outside of our comfort zone.” – Lisa Sugarman

“Adventures happen when you go outside your comfort zone, that’s the place where you grow and where exciting things happen.” – Amanda Rowe

“It’s from mistakes that we are actually are able to grow and it’s through these mistakes that we can connect with our own worthiness.” – Alison Donaghey

“We have to teach our kids to look at fear and analyze it.  Is it real, is it rational, is it logical, is it going to protect you from something harmful or is it getting in the way of doing something awesome.” – Carrie Sharpe
