Jean Case In Conversation with Andrea Mitchell

  • Sixth & I 600 I Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20001 United States (map)

Philanthropist, investor, and technology pioneer Jean Case brings to life five principles common to the people and organizations that change the world in Be Fearless: 5 Principles for a Life of Breakthroughs and Purpose. The book is a call to action to overcome fear, be bold, and take risks for those seeking to live extraordinary lives and bring about transformational change.

Weaving together real-world stories from dozens of ordinary people who ended up doing extraordinary things, as well Case’s own transformational life experiences, Be Fearless provides a clear roadmap for individuals and organizations to ignite change at work, in life, and in communities.

Case vividly illustrates the five principles with storytelling—from John F. Kennedy’s history-making moonshot, to Jane Goodall’s remarkable breakthroughs with chimpanzees, José Andrés’ mission as a food first-responder, Airbnb’s reinvention of the hospitality industry, Bryan Stevenson’s ambitious efforts to end incarceration inequities, and more. In recounting these narratives, Case appeals to readers to ask themselves, “What can I do?” and she provides the tools to get started.
