Researcher and Storyteller, Brené Brown, is a kickass quote creator because she tells it like it is. Her “official” bio is pretty spectacular. Brown is a professor at the University of Houston and has spent the last two decades studying courage, shame, vulnerability, and empathy. She’s hit the number one spot on the New York Times best sellers list five times and Netflix Originals just released “Brene Brown, The Call to Courage” in March of this year. But the first sentence in her personal ‘bottom line’ bio is open honest truth. That’s why it earns the spot of our first kickass quote.
