Today I’m honored to interview my friend and mentor, Rhonda Britten.
Emmy-Award winning life coach, best-selling author, repeat Oprah guest and founder of the Fearless Living Institute, Rhonda’s life story of overcoming the unbelievable tragedy of watching her father murder her mother then turning the gun on himself is nothing short of inspiring.
She shares vulnerably about her 20-year long downward spiral of self-doubt, blame and addiction that followed the murder-suicide and teaches what she has lived by sharing her signature method that helped her find sobriety and get back control over her life.
Rhonda has not only been a personal inspiration to me since I first found her on the television show ‘Starting Over’ in 2003, but to millions of people across the globe through over 600 episodes of reality TV, her podcasts, interviews, books, and programs.
She reassures us that no matter what, “There’s nothing wrong with you. The conversation in your head is just fear. If you’re willing to start a conversation with fear, start working through fear differently, you will be able to transcend that fear.”
Ready to master your fear? Get your pen and paper ready to take notes as Rhonda shares how to use “acknowledgements” to move towards self-love, why experiencing a “dark night of the soul” will change your reality, why you’re not getting things done that you intend to and how to fix that, and many more inspirational insights and takeaways.

Rhonda Britten has devoted her life to one thing: To teach people how to master fear.
Whether that’s a fear of rejection or loss; fear of failure or success; fear of abandonment or pain, Rhonda has created a method for anyone anywhere to master the invisible, insidious fear we all have of ‘not being good enough.’ What she teaches is what she’s lived.
After witnessing the horrific murder-suicide of her parents at the tender age of 14, Rhonda went into a twenty-year spiral of self-doubt, blame and addiction. She tried everything to help herself (therapy, self-help books, improvement workshops, PTSD, energy work, you name it.) but still had nightmares every night and couldn’t get past the fear that there was something wrong with her. After she woke up very much alive after her third suicide attempt, she knew she had to find another way.
What she discovered is a pathway to freedom that cuts through false beliefs, negative thoughts and the silent, secret fears every human being carries. Her simple yet life-altering method is called Fearless Living.
An Emmy-Award winner and repeat Oprah guest, Rhonda was the first Life Coach on reality television in the world on the first-show of its kind, Life Doctor (Second Season the series name was changed to Help Me Rhonda). Next, Rhonda changed lives on the hit NBC reality show Starting Over and named its “most valuable player” by The New York Times and heralded as “America’s Favorite Life Coach” by TV Guide. To date, Rhonda has altered lives in over 600 episodes of reality television that aired in more than 25 countries and impacted millions worldwide.
Rhonda is a recipient of the “Smart Women of the Year” Award, “Coach of the Year,” a blog favorite at HuffingtonPost.com, speaks at TedX and for numerous corporations and organizations such as; Southwest Airlines, Blue Shield of California, Northrup Grumman and many more.
To create a support network, Fearless Living Institute was born which hosts free public introductory classes, online courses, in-person weekend workshops, seven-day Starting Over Intensives and certifies Fearless Living Life Coaches plus Train-the-Trainer Programs.
Rhonda’s four books include her bestselling Fearless Living, which shares her groundbreaking work called the Wheel of Fear, Change Your Life in 30 Days, Fearless Living and Do I Look Fat in This.
