Publisher's Summary

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.
Then she teaches us how to DREAM, to give life to the many possibilities available, whether to start a business, run a marathon, or travel the world. She shows us how to "date" our dreams (no need to commit!) 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 with others to give them life, 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. In her mid-twenties, Whitney found herself in New York, where she landed a secretarial job on Wall Street. With no relevant experience, and a bit shy on confidence, she contemplated her future and her dreams. Through determination and hard work, Whitney became an investment banker, moving to the analyst side of the business, executing the plans she'd laid out for herself. Naively, she thought most women were following similar paths until she started talking and found that many women were not daring to dream at all.
It was because of these conversations that she started a blog in 2006, which became the inspiration for this book. Dare, Dream, Do is full of remarkable stories of women, which will no doubt inspire others to follow suit. Although Whitney focuses on the stories of women, her blog is popular with men as well, and her advice speaks to either gender.

Great words, terrible narrator

Would you listen to Dare, Dream, Do again? Why?

No, simply because the woman who is reading the book has a god-awful voice.


What other book might you compare Dare, Dream, Do to and why?

Brene Brown's Gifts of Imperfection.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Karen Saltus?

The author herself would be nice.


Any additional comments?

The contents of this book are wonderful. If you can get your hands on a physical copy I would recommend it as the narrator's voice was unbearable to me.

Great reminder to "Dare, Dream and Do"

Great book! Love the real-life examples of Moms who are also dreamers and doers. One slight irritation was the fake accents the narrator slipped into when relaying stories from people of varied backgrounds. It struck me as contrived, not authentic. Other than that, great book.
