An Interview with Brené Brown

Living Brave: From Vulnerability to Daring

With millions of people having seen her TED talks and read her books, researcher and bestselling author Brené Brown is a phenomenon.

Here’s the TED talk that launched Brené Brown into the national spotlight. This poignant, personal and funny talk is currently the fourth most viewed TED talk of all time!
