Inspirational Speaker, Creative Artist & Best-selling Author

Amber Rae is an inspirational speaker, creative artist and best-selling author.

Called “A Millennial Motivator” by Fortune and “The Brené Brown of Wonder” by Mind Body Green, encourages creativity, personal growth, and emotional well-being.

Her bestselling book, Choose Wonder Over Worry: Move Beyond Fear and Doubt to Unlock Your Full Potential is a guide to navigate life’s challenges—projects that fail, imposter syndrome, feeling envious or anxious or stuck—all of those, “Am I good enough? Who am I to do this? What if I fail?” moments.

Her writing and speaking blends raw and relatable stories with actionable aha! moments. Called “calming and electrifying” and “an approachable beacon of light,” she’s motivated audience at companies like Kate Spade, Lululemon, The UN, WPP, Entrepreneur, Parsons College of Design and charity: water to create beyond fear, and she’s advised leaders at companies like Adobe, IDEO, Google, Facebook, and Apple. She’s also a career advice columnist at SELF magazine, where she offers advice with radical empathy and care, real talk and real experience.

To cultivate belonging around emotional well-being, Amber hosts “Wonder Circles” at her home in Brooklyn and within companies to support individuals in opening up about their challenges. As an artist, she uses art as a vehicle to normalize emotions and help us feel less alone. She’s created interactive and public art exhibitions in twenty countries across the globe.

Formerly, as Seth Godin’s “Chief Evangelist,” she helped him launch six best-selling books, and worked with brands like Apple, Dove, and Kimberly-Clarke as a strategist on their global marketing campaigns.
