Do you realize that you are the only person in the world who is called to live your exact life? Think about it: you are the only person who can live out your specific purpose. When life is hard and filled with trials and challenges, we would love nothing more than to have someone else take on those struggles for us. Though they may be uncomfortable, there is something honest about understanding that if you own them, those struggles can bring you to a point of realization and greater purpose than had you just given up.
Fearlessly Made You: Surviving and Thriving in a Perfectly Imperfect Life takes you through the honest, authentic, and, dare we say, chaotic trials in the life of Kristie Tobias. Kristie is a seasoned healthcare and business consultant, a national speaker, a nonprofit board member, an advisor to the mayor of Pensacola, Florida, and a former Miss North Carolina International, all of which she achieved before reaching the age of thirty-five. Professionally, Kristie has broken down the barriers that young minority women struggle through to reach her goals.
The journey has not been easy. At twenty years old, after years of sexual abuse and trauma, Kristie was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Kristie takes us through the realistic, messy, sometimes dark, but ultimately inspiring journey of her struggles with PTSD; her challenges with just trying to thrive in life when every obstacle seemed to bring her down; and her complicated relationship with her own self-worth, goals, and expectations.
Fearlessly Made You isn't just about Kristie, it's about you. It's about understanding that your unique purpose in this life is not for life to be easy but to own the journey that is laid out for you and the direction you choose to take. Fearlessly Made You shows you that you don't have to always be perfect or wake up at the crack of dawn every morning to accomplish your goals. Your journey looks different to you than it does to anyone else, and Kristie encourages you to embrace your journey and not allow challenges to keep you from pushing forward through the struggles to live out your purpose.
Kristie Tobias possesses unstoppable resilience, infectious enthusiasm, and a keen ability to connect, engage, and build relationships with everyone from CEOs of Fortune 500 companies to stay-at-home moms and dads who are CEOs of their own homes, from entrepreneurs to anyone just striving to survive and thrive in this sometimes messy and chaotic life.
Kristie has spent over a decade sharing her struggles with PTSD to small, intimate audiences of ten to twenty people as well as to large-scale international audiences of thousands. She believes that everyone deserves to have a voice, and she is here to support and walk alongside those who don't always feel as if their voices have been heard.
