Book Description

Whitney Johnson, popular Harvard Business Review blogger, has a goal: to help us identify and achieve our dreams. Her belief is that we can each achieve greater happiness when focusing both on our dreams and on other people in our lives. In this inspiring book, Johnson directs her attention to teaching women, in particular, a three-step model for personal advancement and happiness. She first encourages us to DARE to boldly step out, to consider disrupting life as we know it. She then teaches us how to DREAM, to give life to the possibilities, whether to start a business or run a marathon. She shows us how to “date” our dreams and how to make space for dreams. Finally, Whitney’s model brings out the businesswoman in her; she teaches us to DO, to execute our dreams. She showcases the importance of sharing dreams and creating your own “dream team.” Rich with real stories of women who have dared to dream, Dare, Dream, Do offers a practical framework to realize one’s true potential.
