157. AMY POEHLER: Great people do things before they’re ready?

Amy Poehler is one of my favourite funny people, known for her portrayal as Pawnee’s Leslie Knope in Parks and Recreation, which I’m a big fan of. She’s also a Saturday Night Live alum and co-founded the influential improv school, The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre.

Besides being an incredibly talented and hilarious performer, Poehler has started projects to promote women’s rights and empower young girls. Her website Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls is a hub for young women to learn and be part of a community, and in her YouTube series Ask Amy, Poehler gives advice and answers questions from fans.

This quote is taken from an Ask Amy video about courage:


John Green Make Gifts for People

Brené Brown The Woman in the Arena

Terence McKenna Nature Loves Courage

Ira Glass Advice for Beginners

Maya Angelou Phenomenal Woman
