Dawn Damon

BraveHeart Mentor

In my late 40’s I found myself in a complete whirlwind of change. In one month, I experienced an empty nest, divorce, career disruption, job loss, financial ruin, and the family dog died! Devastated, I felt alone, lost, and discouraged.

And then...

I found the courage to ask myself this one, life-changing question…


"What do I really want in life?"

I never knew I could ask that question of myself... NOR,  did I know HOW to answer it!

From every angle, this question bewildered me; 

  • WHAT do I want? 
  • What do I want?  
  • What do I WANT?

After years of living for everyone and everything else, I realized it was time  to get brave, muster up what was left of my confidence, and DISCOVER me!


Hi I'm Dawn <3 

As a triumphant survivor of abuse, divorce, and oppression, I can tell you that the keys to my healing were desire, determination, and a dream for a brand new life. I was hungry for wholeness, I  was determined to shed my victim-mentality, and grow in the confidence of a manifested dream. I could acquiesce to tragedy, live an average, mundane life, or rise from the ashes and design a life I truly loved.

That's when I made choices—confident, liberating, and rewarding decisions to re-imagine myself, become brave, and live my best life. 

 The BraveHearted Woman is the ultimate manifesto for you and every woman who finds herself at a crossroads. Whether you are the initiator or victim of change, lost without purpose, or blind to the possibilities awaiting you in mid-life, you will be inspired to rise again, discover true meaning, apply the 5 Fortitudes to Transformation, embrace your God-given calling, and truly become a BraveHearted Woman!
