Equine PodcastWelcome to Episode 2 of Parables: Life Lessons From A Horse.

Today, we are talking about courage. With a little confidence building and small acts of courage, Para went from refusing to cross boggy ground to swimming in unclear waters.

Sometimes, the first step is the hardest to take, but our guest today helps share how we can start small and grow big.

As one of the first female success coaches in the country, Mandy Bass has helped thousands of entrepreneurs break through their income ceilings, reduce stress and lead more fulfilling lives. What she didn’t know was how important these skills would be in saving herself. On February 7, 2016 she suffered a brutal attack on her life when a college student broke into her home in a drug-induced rage and nearly beat her to death. Against all odds, she got herself back on her feet and rebuilt her business and her life.

Mandy shares lessons she learned from the attack and her journey through healing—both for herself and the man who attacked her—in her book, Taming The Tokolosh: Through Fear into Healing.  Mandy’s courage to face and forgive her attacker was featured on the Today Show and in People magazine and also earned her a place on the TEDx stage.
