Break On Through

Gutsy isn’t about being reckless with yourself or with others. Gutsy is about defining your OWN version of success and gaining the confidence and courage to go after what YOU want rather than pursuing what OTHERS expect you to want.

How Gutsy Are You?

Are you the type who tries not to make waves or are you brave enough to choose your own adventure?


What Game Are You Playing?

From the moment we are born, others’ expectations shape our behaviors, choices, and definitions of success. We build our personal and professional lives around those expectations and at some point, many of us wonder if we are on the right path. We may want to make changes, but it’s difficult and we don’t know how to start.

Life is a game, and it is up to each individual to determine just what kind of game they want to play. Robin Moriarty guides readers through a process that shows them how to assess their current state and outlines the steps they need to take in order to achieve their new game and own version of success.
