2Scare Your Soul. I just met a kindred Happiness spirit, Scott Simon, Founder of Scare Your Soul. I love what he is doing in the world and want to share it with you. He is all about becoming a better ‘you’ by facing your fears. As encouragement, each day he invites you to meet head-on a ‘Scare Your Soul’ challenge.
