Are you ready to learn how to shape the change you seek NOW and create the freedom and happiness you long for?
The Courage Challenge is the step by step solution that takes your fear and self-belief from enemy to opportunity.
Does COVID life and the uncertainty it brings have you feeling overwhelmed, lost and more afraid than ever?
You feel afraid of slowing down, afraid of keeping up, afraid of holding on, and afraid of letting go all at the same time.
There’s an internal battle going on (do you feel it?), it’s the resistance between that change you long for and the fear you feel that stands in your way.
Right now you feel stuck, you're longing for the life you are worthy of, but it feels out of reach.
You're tired of fear blocking the space between what you want and taking action.
You're exhausted by the internal conversation that's telling you all the reasons why you can't, when deep down, trust me, you can.
Here’s my promise to you: I’m going to teach you that fear is not your barrier, it’s the doorway to the growth and happiness you seek in your life.
Hi, I’m Penny,
I used to let fear hold me back and I came to realise all it was doing was leaving possibility and happiness on the table.
I remember when I left the safety of my past life, as an executive in a global giant, to start my journey as an entrepreneur and thinking:
But I learnt the secret to drowning out that limiting inner voice, and unlocking the life I wanted lay in cultivating a courage practice.
HERE'S THE THING, IF YOU'D HAVE TOLD ME THAT WITHIN A FEW YEARS OF THIS MOMENT OF FEAR I WOULD HAVE...
Created the freedom to design every day in a way that is completely in alignment with the things that amplify my happiness and my energy
Created a globally renowned business teaching thousands around the world how to intentionally adapt in order to hack their happiness
Become the first woman in the world to deliver a keynote (to an audience of 120 women) in my bathing suit to demonstrate the power of courageous action (don't worry, this was a once-off!)
Been announced as one of the most Influential Female Entrepreneurs in Australia by The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald
Delivered a Ted Talk on why Fear Is Your Future
Been invited to speak at Google in Silicon Valley
Receive a book publishing deal and write my first book Hacking Happiness
Sell the rights to my first book so that it can be turned into a TV series
Written my first article for the Harvard Business Review
Because I’d been conditioned (like so many of us) to believe that fear should be used as an alarm bell to run away rather than lean into possibility.
I’d never been taught how to harness fear in my mind and in my body as a means to identify and act on what truly matters to me.
I’d never been shown how to practice courage in order to build my self-confidence and align my life to more of what lights me up.
Making it unimaginable that I was capable of making all of these things happen… even if I wanted to.
Why am I telling you this?
Because clearly, my courage practice has enabled me to prove that I am more than capable of living my most courageous life
... and the reality is, you are too and I’m here to prove it to you!
I’ve now taught thousands around the world how to practice courage, amplify their self-belief and build skill in taking meaningful action when fear presents... and the impact has been transformative.
This is a question I asked myself at the beginning of my Hacking Happiness journey and it drove the development of a courage practice that transformed my life, and now enables me to support others in doing the same.
The reality is that we are capable of so much more than we realise. Your fears hold the greatest opportunity to align your life towards more of what matters to you.
Yet sadly, for many of us this potential and possibility is never realised because we allow our fear to act as a barrier between what we want, and taking action.
Don't let this be you!
If you're seeking a practical step by step guide and toolkit to stop fear from paralysing your progress and your happiness, you've landed in the right place!
An 8 week transformative challenge-based program that I’ve personally designed to teach you (in bite-sized pieces) how to embrace fear and use it as a lever to shape the change you want in your life NOW!
Learn the practice of getting comfortable with discomfort and experience the freedom and fulfilment that comes with it.
My aim is not to teach you how to get rid of fear - that's neither possible nor healthy. I'm here to support you in reframing your attitude towards fear and unlocking courageous action around the things that matter most to you!
But don’t just take my word for it. Here is what past participants have to say about their Courage Challenge experience...
The Courage Challenge encouraged me to be the person I want to be, by leaning into the parts of life that scare me. It has shown me that fear provides opportunity.
Penny completely reframed what fear is, how I can use it to my advantage and what the cost is of avoiding it. After completing the program, I now see fear as not something to avoid,
but something to lean into
Penny’s down to earth manner and easy to implement hacks showed me how I can face into my fears to achieve what is important to me. She helped me develop my new definition of fear. “Fear is an alert to something that is fundamentally important to me. It indicates the potential to be empowered, contented, energetic and fulfilled”.
Previously, I really avoided fear. The Courage Challenge enabled me to reframe fear. Now I look at what the fear is telling me and I say to myself "happiness is on the other side if I lean in".
I absolutely loved the Courage Challenge! The lessons are excellent, the member portal very easy to navigate and the program set up, so it's easy to follow each day. I would highly recommend the Courage Challenge for anyone who has an uncomfortable or avoidant relationship with fear (like me).
As a recovering perfectionist,
the program enabled me to see imperfect experimentation, progress and learning,
not perfection, as the
goalposts against which I will measure my success.
WHY THIS PROGRAM IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT
I wanted to make it as easy and as accessible as possible for those ready to build their self-belief and ability to lean into fear in a way that unlocks a life in alignment. That’s why this program is designed a little differently.
Courageous Community & Accountability
I'm consistently told the number 1 thing that would be most helpful in making the change I seek would be the support of those who get it, because they are in it with me! The Courage Challenge WhatsApp Group is where we connect in between lessons. This is a safe space where we experiment with our most courageous selves, cheer each other on, and inspire each other through our actions.
Together we will undertake 15 micro challenges that will transform how you look at fear and use it to shape the change you seek.
Lessons You Can Squeeze Into A Lunch Break
Throughout the program there will be 9 LIVE learning lessons, 2 LIVE Hot Seat Coaching sessions, Courageous Yoga practice, and 1 bonus session with a special guest. Each of these sessions is designed to be completed in the time it takes for a lunch break, leaving no excuses for not prioritising you and your growth.
You Won’t Miss A Session
Each live lesson will be recorded, so if you miss one, you can watch it at a time that works for you.
All program materials will be available to you for the lifetime of the program. Making it easy for you to continue your courage practice after the cohort journey has ended. You'll also have access to all future updates, add-ons and extras!
Being courageous means being open to trying new things. The Courage Challenge is designed to connect your mind and your body to the energy and opportunity that courageous action enables. Experiment with journaling, mindfulness, visualisation, yoga, breathing, and much more.

Fear Through A Different Lens
In this lesson we challenge our belief system around fear and open our minds to a new perspective. A perspective that will enable you to step into meaningful action when fear presents.
The Practice Of Getting Comfortable With Discomfort
Sounds great, everyone says we need to do it but how? This is where we kick start you into action through the introduction of a simple daily practice that will enable you to experiment with fear in a way that amplifies your courage and confidence…motivating you to lean into bigger acts of courage over time.
Finding Your Courageous Voice
The language you use determines your ability to make change, so, that’s where we focus in this lesson. We’ll explore your attitude toward fear, identify where it is holding you back and learn how to reframe your words to embrace fear as a lever for positive action.
Permission To Fail
In this lesson you will learn how to let go of the inner perfectionist and embrace the possibility that lies on the other side of Imperfect Experimentation. Reframe your mindset around failure and walk out the door with the permission to try the very thing that you’ve been afraid of failing.
In this lesson we bring it all together by providing you with a simple and practical process to tackle whatever fears come your way, enabling you to step out into the world ready to level up your courage practice.
If you don't ask, you don't get. Yet many of us let the fear of a NO (rejection) stop us from asking for what we really want. In this lesson you will learn how to love a NO and get after the opportunities you've longed for.
This is where we bring it all together and commit to how we will use what we have learnt to own our most courageous selves, and the feeling of f**k yeh I can do this.
