Starting Over Late in Life with Lisa Niver, Author of Brave-Ish

Books That Make You Brave-ish

What happens when you feel like a failure? When you’re pushing fifty, getting divorced and moving back into your parent’s home to start from scratch? Well, if you’re like Lisa Niver, you start by taking one “braveish” step at a time. Each step took her away from her old world and into her new world of travel writing.

These small hurdles led to the challenge at the crux of her new memoir, Brave-ish: One Breakup, Six Continents and Feeling Fearless After Fifty: trying fifty new things before turning fifty. From diving into shipwrecks, swimming with sharks, bobsledding at 3 Gs, to indulging in wild escapades, Lisa found herself traversing the world on a journey of reinvention, personal growth, and discovering what it actually means to be “brave.”

Brave-ish inspires readers to take risks, dream big and embrace the unknown and even the frightening in order to live a life filled with wonder and excitement—even when courage seems elusive.
