How many times have you had to rebuild your life after a big challenge? And how many times have you done it on purpose -- just to test yourself and teach others? Our guest is Te-Erika Patterson.

Te-Erika Patterson, Rebuild Your Life Project

Te-Erika Patterson is a multi-media journalist, blogger and inspirational writer who actually gave away all her possessions to become homeless on purpose as part of her Rebuild Your Life Project, an empowerment outreach venture. Then she moved to a new city with no contacts or support network for The Rebuild Your Life Project — Los Angeles..

It's certainly a bold way to make a statement about self-reliance. Patterson did it to teach other women how to survive an extreme loss and stand up from complete failure. She also did it as a personal journey to face her biggest fear of failure... something she no longer fears because she knows she can survive it. The project was full of joy and pain, success and failure, and the resulting documentary is a gift to all who want to be inspired.
