Hello Fears is a movement inspired by Michelle Poler's project 100 Days Without Fear where she faced, well, pretty obvious what I'm going to say next, but 100 fears in 100 days.

Michelle Poler is a creative and passionate social entrepreneur, keynote speaker, fear facer, and branding strategist.

Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela to a family of holocaust survivors, Michelle was accustomed to living with fear. But when she moved to New York to pursue a Masters in Branding at the School of Visual Arts, Michelle quickly realized that NYC was not for the fearful.

In efforts to re-write her definition of fear, Michelle completed a project where she faced 100 fears in 100 days. At around day 40, the project was discovered by the media becoming a worldwide viral phenomenon. 

Facing her fears took Michelle to TEDx’s stage where she completed her 100th challenge, turning a personal project into a global movement and allowing her to quit her job as Art Director in Y&R to pursue her passion. 

Her work has been featured on Forbes, CBS, CNN, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, The TODAY Show, Fox News, Telemundo, Glamour, Elle, The Rachael Ray Show, Refinery29, PSFK, Mashable and Daily Mail among many others.

She is the Founder of Hello Fears, a social movement empowering millions to step outside of the comfort zone and tap into their full potential. She has spoken at Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, ESPN, Netflix, Procter and Gamble, Microsoft, Toyota, Million Dollar Round Table, World Domination Summit, INBOUND, Festival of Media Global, and many more.

In 2017 she started speaking to the younger generation. Since then, she has empowered over 100,000 students at schools and universities around the world to live with courage, find their authenticity and embrace their growth paths.
