Our guest today is a cellist, singer, songwriter, cheerleader and mentor for other creators.
But it hasn’t always been that way.
In 2013, Emily Ann Peterson received a diagnosis that forever altered her two-decade livelihood as a cellist and cello teacher.
Refusing to lose her life’s love of musical expression, Emily Ann got curious. She began to bravely question and explore new artistic frontiers and broke through her creative glass ceiling through songwriting, which has opened the door to limitless possibilities for Emily.
Emily Ann’s best-selling book is titled: Bare Naked Bravery: How to Be Creatively Courageous, and through it, she helps creators discover the true nature of bravery.
Bravery never feels brave.~Emily Ann Peterson
In addition to all of that, Emily founded The School of Bravery, a community and learning lab for creative visionaries supporting creative entrepreneurs in growing through their challenges and discovering opportunities.
All of these accomplishments and progress were made possible by Emily Ann’s rebellious adventurous spirit, curiosity, bravery and through a tailored and disciplined approach to performing and teaching, a gift from her classical training.
Emily Ann writes for people who struggle to remember what hope feels like and sings to those who yearn for something secret. She speaks to those who are done being bored and crave all things beautiful, strong, sacred, and sensual.
Emily’s goal is to inspire a global resonance and magnanimous community through the marriage of art and whole-person development.
