My Fearless Friday Guest Blog Post
Recently, I had the honor of being a guest blogger for Fearless Friday on Brenda Whiteside’s blog. I couldn’t help but be drawn to the topic, since fearlessness is something I’ve thought a lot about over the years.
From leaving home on my own as a teenager, to kayaking class V rapids, to changing careers and starting (and closing) businesses, to getting married, I’ve done more scary things than I can count on my fingers and toes combined. I’ve even taught classes on how to get past your fears and take action—and it’s not about being fearless. It’s about being scared and doing it anyway.
For those who struggle with fear (and don’t we all?), I included the questions I always ask myself when deciding whether to take the leap, or keep my feet on solid, safe ground.
Embrace the Fear—Take the Risk
By Stacy Gold
At the age of 19, I drove from Georgia to Colorado with my dog, $500 dollars in my pocket, and the promise of a job as a whitewater raft guide. That winter, I decide to ski-bum in Breckenridge—and I didn’t even know how to ski.
People often called me brave, but I never felt brave. They touted my fearlessness, but damn was I scared. Didn’t matter though.

Well this pretty much sums it up, doesn’t it?
Why don’t I need the Mueller Report to know Trump is a Russian Asset? Because:
—He tried to remove (and then refused to enforce) sanctions on Russia
—He softened the GOP platform on Russia
—He sided with Putin over our intel agencies
—He capitulated to NK at Putin’s request
“Never be afraid to sit awhile and think.”
I just want to make a few things clear:
The Holocaust happened.
Hitler was a demonic figure.
And instead of giving it a platform, our political leaders should be calling out and rejecting antisemitism wherever it hides.
Silence is complicity.
