Move away from the idea that you have a work life and a non-work life.

Who you are is not situational.

Did you take the risk? Did you really take the risk, or did you just tell yourself you took the risk? Did you take part of the risk? You know, put your foot out of the plane, but never really jumped?

You may have attached the parachute. You may have boarded the plane.You took off. You stood by the door.

That’s 60% of the steps required for a skydive. But it’s just an airplane ride, not skydiving.

And then you show up in your favorite comfy shoes, or maybe fierce stilettos, ready for the next  step of the journey.

The Denver Hutt Legacy Foundation and the Hutt Family invite you to download How to Wear a Wig. We encourage you to reflect on Denver’s words and to be inspired to live your life with as much courage as Denver lived hers.
