By Chance or By Choice?
Ever wonder if you’re living a life governed by others’ expectations - hiding behind what feels safe and familiar? Do you find yourself settling for what’s given or are you fighting for what you truly desire? Are you unsure as to whether you can choose differently at this stage in life?
The answer is YES, you can!

And it starts with challenging the norms you’ve settled into and daring to step outside your comfort zone.
- 2 minutes on what BOLD is -
To Live BOLD is a choice.
It is a commitment to prioritizing oneself, transcending ego-driven motivations, in order to unlock our unbounded potential. It's about shedding the need for external validation and recognizing one’s inherent worth - acknowledging that every choice we make is the right one, despite the shame & guilt our inner-critic projects onto us.

Discover Your Own Unique Path
HEY! Yeah, you.
Have you felt stuck, powerless or like life just keeps happening to you no matter how hard you try? You might find the book I just wrote compelling.
In my life, I found that where there's pain, there's possibility.
As humans, we all stumble and lose our way. In my life, there is a short list of people I rely on to walk me back to the path. At the top of that list is Brent Perkins. He operates from a place of peace and joy, while simultaneously calling out BS when he sees it.

Brent demonstrates vulnerability, is incredibly curious, and leverages a set of proven tools to learn, assess, and share improvement ideas. In a personal coaching setting, I find Brent to be competent, empathetic and empowering. All the while, he drives accountability which yields growth.

Brent does a great job synthesizing the learnings from his personal growth journey into content easily consumed by the reader. His words are raw, authentic and relatable. Papercuts gave me a new appreciation of the agency we all have on how we experience each and every day, and tools to live with more ease and joy in this life.

Brent Perkins is one of the most caring and present leaders in the marketplace today. Unlike many other thought leaders who offer little in terms of tangible value, he overdelivers in every sense of the word. Brent has helped my business but more importantly my marriage, my relationships with my kids, and even my relationship with myself.
Andrew Biggs , CEO, Better Than Rich
Brent Perkins led a group coaching call and immediately showed us what it is like to go deep and get the work in. Personally Brent and I spent an hour of time with him coaching me through some business issues. The amount of value he gave speaking from his vast experience was incredible and I am sincerely thankful.
Chad Slater , CEO, Solar Power Lifestyle
Last night I skimmed back through chapters 1 and 2, and then mostly re-read chapters 3 through 5. Wow! Maybe I was just in a more open mindset but I felt like I was getting slugged with (hard) truth after truth that I needed to hear in exactly that moment. There are nuggets everywhere. This is a special gift to the world.

"When we step into curiosity, we
find that we have a choice to see
the world through other people’s
eyes. To imagine what their
experiences are, even though we
cannot know them directly."
Bring BOLD To Your Next Event
Challenge your audience/team to go deep, get vulnerable and be present. To truly see and hear their colleagues, family members and themselves - maybe for the first time. When we get out of our own way, show up to life without assumptions and expectations, and stop trying to control the outcomes of every situation, amazing things start to happen. Life, it turns out, wants us to be happy and successful. Who knew?
