Love & Hilarity with Melanie Curtis — Professional Skydiver, Author, Coach

“That mindset of questioning fear and taking action through fear is the entire reason why I am an author, why I am an entrepreneur, it is why I have done a ton of things in my career — because of that access to perceptible bravery. Feeling fear and doing things anyway.” — Melanie Curtis
