Imagine yourself at 5 years old.


Your eyes lighting up with wonder, your tummy tingling with endless magical possibilities, your voice trembling with excitement as you say the words…


“When I grow up…


I want to be exhausted all the time.

I want to be out of shape working at a boring job with no time, energy or money  to have fun or do the things I love.”


Ummmm, WTF? Excuse me?!


So what happened?


Life happened. That’s what.


Do you ever sit and wonder how you got to where you are now?


Maybe you have a book in you, a story that needs to be told.


Maybe you still haven’t taken that step to plan that trip around the big wide world, to take in all the sights, smells and amazing food out there. 


Maybe you have this genius business idea not only giving you the freedom to spend your time doing what you love with the people you love but that will also do some good in the world.


Or maybe you just don’t know what it is you want to do but a bit of fun and extra sparkle in the life you have now wouldn’t be a bad thing right now.

What do you need daring to do?

Join the I Dare You Crew to receive random dares helping you feel good about life and who you are so you can send ripples of awesomeness and joy out into the world and make it a better place.


Join the I Dare You Crew and choose to get dared to do that thing you always wanted to do – because sorry to get all dark and shit but one day it will actually be too late.


Join the I Dare You Crew and go at your own pace – cos you know, life and kids and all that other shit too.


Join the I Dare You Crew and have peeps on your side, holding you accountable so you actually spend that hour doing what you said you were going to do and not the washing up, the ironing or crafting that perfect and witty facebook status.


Join the I Dare You Crew and be a part of a community of peeps just like you who get it, who will be cheering you along, picking you up and keeping you going – cos there’s nothing like saying you’re going to do something a little different and have all your loved ones piss all over your chips with fears about how it’s all a big waste of time or that it’s scary or whatever else stops them from doing their thing. Been there, heard it all.


The best bit is, is that it’s totally free to take part too!


It’s the happiest place on the internet!


I dare you to join the I Dare You Crew!


Dare to join the movement?


What some of my darelings have said:


“It led to getting laid too!”



“What you do saves lives.”
