As she raises her voice and asks questions that are often not posed, Sheryl Sandberg elevates women around the world and across generations. “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?”, she asked. I answered and Fearless Beauty was born.
Sheryl Sandberg is the author of Lean In, COO of Facebook, and a leader in the continuing movement to bring not only awareness to the injustices that women face but also in bringing equality to us all. She asks us to “sit at the table”, to stand up, lean into our fears and to strive for our goals. Even as we pursue those goals, she suggests rather than looking at our path in the form of a ladder where there is only up or down and competition is key, instead we should look at our journey as a jungle gym. With this model, there is room for growth, expansion and community. She supports balance and the idea that maybe there really is no such thing as having it all. And…That’s ok.
She asked and I answered. So…What would you do if you weren’t afraid?
