Living off coffee and dry shampoo, Amanda Carroll, likes to say she's just winging it: Life. Motherhood. Eyeliner. Everything. She is a nationally syndicated radio host and loves to encourage you to live a strong and courageous life.

Amanda adopted the phrase "Get Your Brave On" ten years ago when she became a single mother of 3; she calls them her sunshines. She explains, "I was full of fear, when I entered single motherhood, but I knew God wanted me to move forward bravely for my family.”

She runs the website Get Your Brave On! to inspire others to embrace failure and learn how to practice the art of bravery. When Amanda isn't running kids to baseball practice, dance class, basketball, or volunteering for her local little league, she squeezes in time in for a good workout or a round of golf, and is on a mission to find the best tacos in town!
