Michelle Poler - Say hello to your fears

Fear less, do more!

Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela to a family of holocaust survivors, Michelle Poler was accustomed to living with fear. But when she moved to New York to pursue a Masters in Branding at the School of Visual Arts, Michelle quickly realized that NYC was not for the fearful.

In efforts to re-write her definition of fear, Michelle set out to face 100 fears in 100 days. Half way into the journey, the project was discovered by the media, becoming an instant viral phenomenon. 

Michelle completed her 100th challenge on a TEDx’s stage. This helped her turn a personal project into a global movement, allowing her to quit her job as an Art Director in advertising to pursue her passion.

Michelle discovered that inspiring others to go after their fears was her new calling. She is now touring the world speaking at companies, schools and organizations (FacebookGoogleNetflixYouTubeMicrosoft...) teaching audiences how to step outside their comfort zones as a way to tap into their full potential. 

She is also the host of YouTube/Podcast series Dear Younger Self, and the founder of Hello Fears, a platform where everyday people get to inspire everyday people with stories of courage.
