Jamie Tworkowski’s life changed in 2006 when he met Renee Yohe and wrote a story called “To Write Love on Her Arms.” He posted the story on MySpace and began selling TWLOHA t-shirts as a way to help pay for Renee’s treatment. Today, TWLOHA has now responded to 200,000 messages from people in 100 countries, in addition to giving two million dollars to mental health treatment and recovery.

Jamie is the founder of To Write Love on Her Arms and the New York Times bestselling author of ‘If You Feel Too Much’. Currently, he’s been putting his time into HEART CAMP — a two-day workshop that invites the attendees to dive into matters of mental health, authenticity, writing, starting something that matters, and bringing their heart to work.

In this conversation, Branden and Jamie get real and personal about the cost of putting everything into your work, moving courageously toward transition and new chapters, and why the greatest thing we can do is to choose to stay until tomorrow.
