About Me

I’m Cara Stein, the creator of Beyond Fear. Overcoming fear has been a big theme in my life for the past few years. After all, what’s scarier than reinventing yourself?

My latest adventure has been starting my own business and quitting my job. I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but instead I took the “safe” path for many years. I discovered that changing your life is a lot easier than it looks, and I knew I had to spread the word. I’m the founder of 17,000 Days, a blog about remembering that life is short and making your best days a common occurrence.

I’m also the author of two other guides: How to be Happy (No Fairy Dust or Moonbeams Required) and Getting Unstuck.
