Ruth’s message is for everyone. I’ve always been a very goal oriented person and have reached my biggest goal several years ago...but I still need better motivation and focus to help me maintain this goal and reach other ones that seem daunting to me! In walks this podcast!I’m an entrepreneur, a mom, & I homeschool my daughters...I cannot wait to receive my planner to keep everything together. My husband is super excited that I’m excited about budgeting!!!!

I am new to every thing Ruth, and thanks to my mom showing me! I just got the planner, and I’m reading her books, and now starting to listening to her pod casts... I believe that every thing happens for a reason, thank god my mom introduced me to Ruth!! I have nothing but positive remarks to say about her pod casts. It makes me nervous to do what I’ve always wanted to do, but like she says “Do it scared.”

Love love do it scared!

Episode 31 is the best one yet so far! For me this podcast gives me what I need to hear. I pay this podcast before I go to bed therefore I can reflect on the day and if I did something that I was fearful of and how to implement it for the following day. Thank you Ruth for all that you do. Keep it going... even if you are scared 😉

Refreshingly helpful!

I’ve listened to a bunch of episodes of this show over several listening platforms and I really dig it! Do It Scared has a sense of authenticity that you don’t see in another self help books or shows. As we approach the end of the year and people starting New Year’s resolutions, I highly recommend listening to this podcast if you wanna make big changes in your life.

Fantastic podcast! A must-listen!!

I love the Do It Scared podcast. I was an occasional reader of Ruth's blog but I never miss an episode of her podcast. My favorite part is how she alternates her episodes between interviews with others and her own message.

Do It Scared

I was tired of the same music on the radio. While stuck in traffic, I decided to look for a podcast. Luckily, the first one was Do It Scared with Ruth Soukup. I found it very easy to relate to her. Her energy and positive vibes are easy to soak up. Great podcast!

Listen to the Laura Belgray episode!!

I was introduced to Ruth’s podcast through Laura Belgray’s list. I loved the conversational tone of the podcast. Ruth created such a fun interview with questions I had never heard anyone ask Laura before. Laura’s advice always inspires me to write better copy, and in the process, I fell in love with Ruth too! This podcast, and specifically this episode, is so worth the time!

Exactly what I needed to hear!

I found the Do It Scared podcast just a few days ago and I’ve already listened to most of the episodes! I was really struggling with wanting to start a blog. Every worry, feeling of inadequacy, and excuse was addressed in the episodes. It’s exactly was I needed.

I stumbled upon Ruth in my pursuit of becoming a blogger, and got her “How to Blog For Profit Without Selling Your Soul” book to jump start my efforts. It was so good I read it 5 times in a few minutes this. So I gave the podcast a listen and was drawn to the constant encouragement and motivation it gave me to push forward in my efforts to live my best life. Her guests are always inspiring, and the lessons very applicable and real. Thank you for sharing so openly and giving me the push I need to start actively building my dream future!

Love this podcast!!

Every podcast has been great but I have to say that the Hal Elrod podcast has really had an impact on me. I have been an early riser for years so getting up early to do the Miracle Morning SAVERS isn't really a problem. In fact, I've done most of the SAVERS individually at various times. But there is so much more power in doing them together instead of my recent routine of getting up early to become glued to time wasting computer apps. Thank you so much for this needed reminder that how I start the day sets the tone for the day!!!

Timing Is Everything

I’m a little late to the Do It Scared movement, but I believe my late arrival was all in God’s timing. I’ve been listening to this podcast everyday( just finished #14) and I am beyond excited to continue this journey. Do It Scared has been the right message at the right time in my life. This podcast has pushed me to look for my “why” in the things I devote most of my time to. It has given me concepts and words of encouragement to offer to women around me that need a little push. I appreciate Ruth’s transparency and her intentional purpose to help everyone she comes in contact with to improve the life they are leading. Thank you for keeping it real!

Real and inspiring!

I love listening to Ruth’s podcast! Even if I “think” I don’t really need to listen to an episode (which is totally wrong of me!), I always get something inspiring, valuable and actionable in each and every episode. Thank you, Ruth for fearlessly leading the Do It Scared Movement, and for your vulnerability and your willingness to help us all to just go and #doitscared to live more courageously!

I’ve listened to almost all of the podcasts so far and am truly inspired. Not in an over the top, insane way, but in a “yeah, you can do this!” way. Ruth drops inspo bombs in every episode, and each of the guests have been amazing and again, inspiring, but as real people. That’s the big thing: this is all about real people, like me, doing amazing things and sharing so you can too. I’ve recommended to so many people, starting with my young adult daughters. Take these lessons to heart!

My friend recommended it and has been giving me lunchtime summaries of all the episodes. I wish I had started listening the day Tina first mentioned it. I am so energized and so motivated to create the life I love. I have been afraid to take a leap. I a so safe where I am. I love to company I work for, I love the people I work with, but I do not love my job. Life is going to change this year. I have set my big goals, I have ruthlessly eliminates my excuses and the voice in my head that says I am crazy can’t shout over the excitement. I have told people and made my affirmations. Thank you!

Ruth is fun and transparent as always. She is encouraging without being too “rah rah” all the time. I’ve listened to several episodes, both with a guest and without. I usually go to the website and check out the transcript of the podcast so I can write a few things down after I listen.

I’ve recently taken a scary leap into the unknown and I feel all kinds of excited and motivated and SCARED!!! I came across this podcast and have only listened to a couple episodes so far but plan on soaking in the rest. Great advice and motivation for jumping in with both feet and DOING IT!!! Thank you!!!

It gives you a great kick in the butt to get moving on your goals at the beginningof the week. I especially love her encouragement to dream bigger. I always remember Ruth's advice that if the dream doesn't scare you, that means you need to go bigger!

She was talking to me!!

by Since 2001 on Sep 20, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

UPDATE:Oh my goodness! The latest epsode called "HOW TO ESCAPE THE COMPARISON TRAP" felt like she was talking specifically to me! She talks about het EBA course and the students and how they start to look all over the place, like forums and social media groups, to make sure they aren't missing something and end up getting overwhelmed and comparing themselves to others who are in a different place or a further place. There is so much conflicting advice and it wears one down. To the point of self doubt, due to comparison of yourself to others doing the same thing, and then you just give up. You feel like it is too hard because you cannot decide which advise to take and that makes you become unfocused. And Oh Gosh!! That's me! Thankfully, Ruth gives great advice on how to overcome these doubts and keep plugging along to be successful at whatever it is you are choosing to do. The encouragement is worth more than gold. Thanks Ruth!I subscribe to Do It Scared podcast and listen to each one. Although most of them speak to me and inspire me, Episode 010 with Edie Wadsworth has really touched a nerve. I was the girl who didn't wear the right clothes and was teased and grew up with no self esteem what so ever. But I never had the determonation then, but now I do and her story was a really great one

Great, but...

by DC Commuter1 on Sep 20, 2018
Rating: ★★★★☆

Great content, but please stop saying “like” and “um!” Let’s own our smarts and success as women. We CAN be strong and confident. But not giving 5 stars due to the gal in Episode 6 who was constantly making excuses for her man-child husband who needs to grow up, and was inadvertently and thoroughly apologizing for her own success. Content is great but messaging needs major improvement. BE CONFIDENT IN SUCCESS. Couldn’t stomach that episode.

She’s amazing!

I bought a planner (preordered) because I thought it was pretty and was gifted with so much more than just a planner. These podcasts and the accompanying downloads/worksheets, motivation and inspiration couldn’t have come at a more perfect time for me! I can’t wait to listen to them all! I am ready to Do It Scared!❤️And the best part? The planner should be here in a couple of days!

I’m someone who lets fear conquer their life, and it’s so refreshing to hear that Ruth is in the same boat and to see where she is now! I recently joined her Elite Blog Academy and I still have barely started on my blog because I’m afraid but I want to reach past that. I just listened to the Stretch Goals podcast and I’m about to start putting these actions to work. Thank you, Ruth, for everything!

Great content buuuuut

Rating: ★★★★☆

Ruth! I love your content and it brings such value to my life. You’re a true inspiration to me not only as a woman, but as a mother, wife, and businesswoman. Keep it up! I have only one item to address, which may be something that is only aesthetically displeasing to my ears. I had to stop listening to episode 18 about 10 minutes in because of your constant “mmm”ing and “mhmm”ing which distracted from what this unbelievable woman was trying to say. And on top of it, it sounded like someone is chewing in the background. I’m all about raising each other up, and not one to comment, but please take this into consideration when you do future podcasts. I’m a subscriber and I am excited to listen to future posts! :) :) :)

Sweeping Out The Rats!

I’m a “Do It Scared” newbie...listening to my first couple of podcasts, embracing “Crush It” Boot Camp and trying to get help to figure out why at age 55 I still have several lifelong dreams/goals as yet unfulfilled. What has held me back? I have much to learn and lots of work to do...Ruth’s approach for breaking down content is essential, simple to follow and relatable. I am gaining clarity with each podcast and personal growth activity. Sweeping out the rats of distraction, excuses and procrastination that have paralyzed my motivation for years.Thanks Ruth!

Good listen. Biggest take away: The thing is, we all experience stress and fear in our lives, but when we can transform that fear into a feeling of “I’ve got this,” that stress becomes confidence.~ Mike Michalowicz

It’s okay

by ActionJackson5 on Aug 27, 2018
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I like some of the guests she has on, but there’s a problem. The one reason this podcast is hard to listen to is because Ruth says “mmmhmmmm” and “mmmmm” way to much. She does it whenever a guest is in the middle of talking. It’s extremely distracting. I had to shut off a recent episode in the middle of it because I had my headphones and sounded like a bee was flying around my ear. Feedback: when the guest is talking, let them talk. You don’t have to constantly make noises so they know you’re paying attention. Silence is sometimes a good thing. Especially in this case.

Pretty good

by MrsBobbyV on Aug 27, 2018

I like Ruth’s podcasts my only complaint is that she always laughs when she’s talking all the time. It’s irritating so after awhile I have to stop listening. I’ve never heard an interviewer do this.

My Reawakening

by Ena Ballerina on Aug 25, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

The DoItScared podcasts are my reawakening to this powerful mindset! After listening to just one of Ruth’s podcasts, I realized that I used to DoItScared, but something happened within the last few years that caused me to sink into myself. What was that? Why was that? And then I realized, I don’t deserve that! Why should I sink in and stay there?! That’s not the life I want! And furthermore, I realized that I needed a kick in the derrière to get back into the DoItScared practice! And so, here I go! Thank you, Ruth! And thank you to all of your guests, who so bravely share their DoItScared stories!
