This is not MY ebook. This is truly YOUR ebook, a work of the entire Get Gutsy community. These are the stories of those who participated in the 2014 #GetGutsy essay contest.

These are your stories.

Get Gutsy Ebook by Jessica LawlorBe inspired by the nearly 20 people who agreed to share their very personal stories with the world.

When you dive into the book, you’ll read compelling essays about:

  • Overcoming depression
  • Quitting a soul-sucking job to pursue a dream
  • Moving to a brand new, unfamiliar city
  • Conquering long-distance races
  • Traveling the world
  • Losing more than 30 lbs and embracing a healthy lifestyle

Most importantly, you’ll walk away inspired. You’ll walk away with admiration and respect for the authors of these stories-people who opened up about their struggles, their passions and their achievements.

You’ll walk away motivated to do the very same- to step outside your comfort zone every once in awhile…and to live a more gutsy life.

Enjoy…and get gutsy.
