Welcome, I’m Dave Ursillo.

I teach people to connect to their voices and express themselves in the world through writing, storytelling and yoga. I believe that living your Unapologetic Life is personal leadership; that being your True Self creates change our world. Learn More…

What Does It Mean to Lead?

I wanted to be a part of positive change in the world. After September 11, 2001, I sought a career in public service.

But, years later, I was disillusioned to the system and feeling held back. So I quit my job and committed to writing. Sharing my words became my form of personal leadership.

Change the World? Start Within.

Today, I’m a self-employed writer, yoga teacher and creative who teaches programs, workshops, classes and retreats that give people tools of self-knowledge and self-expression.

I believe that you become a “leader without followers” — a leader by example — by knowing more of your True Self. It begins by exploring your values, understanding your heart’s desire, and embodying your truth in the world, every day.

Stay Unapologetically You.

What if you are all that you require to become a leader — a spark of change, goodness and love in our world?

Every two weeks, I email thousands of readers with new stories, lessons and articles that pull apart big, lofty ideals and explore how to practice them in daily life.
