Lawrence Okolie

Fear can paralyse us into inaction, but boxer Lawrence Okolie has learnt to use it to his advantage, to motivate him to keep fighting both physically and mentally. In this chat, he and Fearne talk through how to be disciplined, stop making excuses, and keep yourself accountable when you have an important goal to achieve.

Lawrence’s is the first of many exciting new voices in the modern wellness space that Fearne’s new endeavour, Happy Place Books, will be championing. Dare To Change Your Life is the first book to be published by Happy Place Books, and is out now.
