Event description

Description

We all want to confidently ask for a raise, give a stellar presentation, break out of our comfort zones, or even chase our biggest life dream like starting a company. We also want to overcome our anxiety of rejection or failure, and defiantly ignore each “no” versus feeling crappy inside afterward. So what’s stopping us? Ah yes, that little thing called FEAR.

Get what you want in life by learning medically proven steps to hack fear and taking ACTION. Join us on a fun, enlightening, and inspiring intensive weekend boot camp on retraining your brain’s fear instinct. What is fearful today can be fun and exciting tomorrow.

Day 1 starts with a lecture on the science of fear and the steps to overcome it. Then, we put all the steps into action so you don’t simply understand fearlessness, you become it.

Weekend homework challenges you on more fearless actions customized to your specific fears. We build your confidence through live activities that scare the heck out of you: doing standup comedy, selling things to strangers, or asking someone out while completely sober. We end with a specific plan for you to tackle your own fear in your own daily life.

Day 2 forces you to achieve something you fear. We create multiple accountability mechanisms and an encouraging buddy system. You leave fully armed with a sustainable plan to tackle your fear going forward.

By the end of the boot camp, you will have accomplished something that pushed past your own fears and helped you build new confidence. Come alone or with friends to this unique experience as we build new accountability bonds so your newfound fearlessness becomes everlasting.

Weekend bootcamp held Dec 16 & 17 from 3-5:30pm.

Early bird discount tickets $39.

Regular tickets $49.

Door tickets first day of class: $79.

Please show pre-purchased online tickets upon arrival.

ABOUT RACHEL, THE FEAR-TAMER

Years ago, I started doing all sorts of things that scared the heck out of me. It was both terrible and awesome, and led me to some of my favorite life achievements.

- Moving to the other side of the world: Born and raised in California, I was offered a job in China. I feared I would be lonely, culture shocked, and sick from the air pollution. All the above happened. But, this is what also happened: I had so many amazing life experiences, I published a book about my 4 years living in China and was consequently asked by Columbia Business School to be a guest lecturer.

- Stand-up comedy: I had always wanted to do improv comedy. I took my first improv class in China, fearing I would really suck at it. On my first day, the class gave me a solo assignment: to rap in Mandarin. I was as terrible as that sounds, but I kept practicing. Years later, I was on stage at Upright Citizen’s Brigade and an almost TED speaker (that’s another story…).

- Selling stuff to strangers: I finally quit my job as a Chief Strategy Officer at a major healthcare company to follow my dream of starting my own company in NYC. I feared I would fail miserably and go broke. Well, I did go broke, because I realized I was a terrible salesperson. I decided to learn sales the old-fashioned way: by setting up a lemonade stand on the streets of New York and getting over my fear of selling to complete strangers. I also sold anything else I could think of, including a service to vacationing Manhattanites to babysit their dogs, cats, or plants in exchange for living in their apartments in their absence. And that’s how I managed to live in NYC for 5 months for free.
