“Do It Scared”



Ruth Soukup went from rock bottom with a 10% chance of survival following the last of multiple suicide attempts to launching the multi-million dollar company Ruth Soukup Omnimedia. In her 20’s, Ruth had a debilitating depression and spent more than two in and out of psychiatric hospitals. She was divorced, bankrupt, and completely alone and her arms and legs were covered with the scars from suicide attempts . She feared she’d ruined her life forever and was terrified – but she was not ready to give up and began by facing one fear at a time beginning with exercise. From there she worked her way up to finding a job and her own apartment. She kept on going – scared but determined – and eventually founded a multi-million dollar company. Today she has an online community of more than a million followers with robust engagement and uses the lessons learned throughout her own deeply personal journey to help women everywhere face and conquer their fears.
