It's been quite a while between posts so I'm thrilled to mark a return to the blog with inspiration via a young woman courageously making her mark on the world. Chloe Wigan is a young writer and life coach from Australia that entered the self-development field from a young age, which immediately resonated with me. But the reason I'm so excited about this interview is because Chloe is a brilliant example of someone that puts her best foot forward and commits to living boldly even when fear and doubt pops up. It's definitely worth listening to some of the gems she has to offer up, I'd say.
Gosh, are you guys in for a treat today. Connie Chapman is one of the women I most admire in the personal growth and coaching field. Having had a session with her myself I can tell you first hand that Connie goes deep, has an uncannily spot-on intuition (there's no hiding!) and she is there to support her clients the whole way as they inhabit the changes they crave. Her vulnerability is pretty darn inspiring and her writing is truly stirring. And let's not forget her brilliant podcast, Awaken Radio, which is a must-hear. She's filling in the blanks for us today.
The Universe works in weird and wonderful ways. This isn't news, but a reminder is always welcome. I first came across Maddison Vernon's work a couple of years ago, when she was still at uni and I remember being inspired by someone entering the coaching and personal growth world so young. After an intermission of sorts Maddison (re)appeared on my radar right when I needed her to. She put her head above the parapet so that I could see her, and I'm mighty glad she did because I get to share her words with you today.
This month's Bold-Heart is the host of the very first podcast I ever found a couple of years back, Wellness Wonderland Radio. It seems perfect (though totally coincidental) that this interview follows on from my post on my favourite podcasts a short while ago. Katie has been carving a path in the seemingly overcrowded online personal growth world as a young woman ready to share the message of health and happiness in way that no one else can - simply by being herself. Having overcome her own body-related struggles and an eating disorder she now "helps women develop a positive relationship with food and their body image by embracing a spiritual connection of their own understanding". I love that last bit: "a spiritual connection of their own understanding." Much less intimidating (and potentially off-putting) than white robes, stiff backs, a bald head or chanting beneath the moon, right?
Emily Ehlers first came onto my radar a couple fo years back when she wrote a blog called 'Olive on Blonde'. Since then her blog and business has morphed a couple of times. Today she describes herself as, "a writer, coach, speaker and artist who moonlights as a mama with a penchant for animal impressions (my “Gorilla” is actually amazing)." After discovering that health coaching wasn't her zone of genius she took a little 'time out' (*cough* minor identity crisis) and came back as a sensational copywriter for gutsy solo-preneurs with a hankering for authentic expression. Which is pretty much a no-brainer considering that this lady can really (like, really, really) write and peppers all of her prose with giggle prompts (she's funny too).
Personally, I can't think of someone better to talk about vulnerability, authenticity, living boldly and other buzzwords without sounding like a douche. (And that's meant as a glowing compliment).
The minute you visit Rebecca Campbell's blog for the first time you'll know that she's a visual wiz, mystic and writer all rolled into one - with a fetish for triangles and flowers that's hard to miss. It's been a pleasure to watch as Rebecca has risen high and higher, just last week she becoming the published author of Light Is The New Black, not to mention an all-around inspiring lady. I hope you enjoy her answers and insights!
Living inspired, well and with soul. I think that nicely sums up Kristen Graham's vibe when you visit her blog or Instagram account. I leave them uplifted, calmer and motivated to add even just a slice more of that bliss to my day. Kristen has come along way from her days of partying, chronic stress and triple fudge cookies to heal from an autoimmune disease, Myasthenia Gravis. But it's not just her story that draws in her followers. The blogosphere is a noisy place so it's always a thrill to find someone that is carving out their own space and creating a community of like-minded young women craving more pleasure, calm and wellness in their lives. Kristen has done just that.
The vibe. The story. The community. It's a killer combo. And now she is filling in some of the blanks with bold moves, clean slates and daily delights. Enjoy!
