About Judi

Judi Holler owns a creative company that is on a mission to help people live braver lives and EMPOWER leaders to lead braver teams. Her work takes the experimental principles of the improv theatre and helps you apply them to the unscripted stage of everyday life. These ideas will teach you that while you’ll never be “fearless” … you can get really good at …


Judi is a professionally trained improviser and alumni of Second City’s Conservatory in Chicago and she uses her training every day to smash self-doubt and experiment with fear.

Judi’s book, Fear Is My Homeboy, became an instant bestseller on Amazon, is currently being translated into two languages and was endorsed by the inspiring Mel Robbins calling it …. “relatable, relevant and most importantly ACTIONABLE!”

Additionally, Judi is the creator of the Fear Boss Community, a community of brave humans dedicated to experimenting with fear, and she has a brand new podcast called, The #FearBoss Show which is now available wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts!

When Judi is not keynoting conferences, podcasting, testing out new fear experiments, and creating content for the #FearBoss community … she is most likely riding her Peloton bike, nose deep in a book, or hanging out with her husband Scott and their golden retriever, Tito!

Judi likes her books non-digital, her wine bubbly, and her music hip-hop.

Judi’s Mission : To help you be braver than you were yesterday and smash comfort zones by experimenting with your fear. Every day. On purpose. Judi’s Vision : A world so brave that the word regret has been removed from the dictionary because you are way too busy making things happen for yourself!

Influencers in Judi’s work : Brené Brown is her Beyoncé. Amy Poehler is her favorite funny girl. Gilda Radner is her comedic hero. Marie Forleo reminds her that “everything is figure-out-able”. Steven Pressfield is her Fear Doctor. Dr. Dre reminds her to roll to the beat. And Seth Godin inspires her to go make things happen.
