Kate and I connected through Bright Eyed & Blog Hearted an online blogging course that rocked my world. I also found out that her partner and my husband know each other as they both grew up in the same town. Such a small world!!
Let's jump straight into Kate's wonderful words...
+ How did you get to where you are today?
Through a lot of unravelling, leaping into the unknown, plenty of 'what the hell was I thinking' moments. But really, I'm here today for a lot of reasons. Why am I online? Because I found a passion through my experiences and realised I have a story to tell and lessons to share. And boy, I freakin' love it!
+ What motivates you each and every day?
My lust for life. I am a big believer in following your 'Why' - the reason behind everything you do. Meaning matters and no matter how small or big it is, it's what really drives happiness. Health, connection and innovation give me deep meaning - and I've worked hard at turning this into a profitable passion. My blog and soon to be released Happiness Hub is my dream vessel.
+ What quote do you live by at the moment?
My all-time favourite is 'feel the fear and do it anyway!'.
+ What has been your biggest struggle on your journey?
A few things, it always changes. Growing up, it was bullying. During university, it was dealing with anxiety and adjusting to a huge change in my environment which really didn't suit my poor hearing. Now, it's about juggling a lifestyle I want with a bank account to support it. But, all struggles are stemmed from the mind. I may have seen them as struggles at the time, but not I just see them as lessons. And I'm very grateful for them.
+ What food can you not live without?
Avocado. Salmon. Cacao. Potato
+ Do you have a daily routine? If so, what is it?
Not really, it changes every day. At the moment, I get up and go for a run or gym (I'm training for 10km Melbourne Marathon in October), have breakfast then a shower before getting into work. But other days I might head out and work in a café, or take the morning off. As long as I have a list of 3-5 things I need to do that day, I can have a productive day without a set routine.
+ What would you tell your 14 year old self?
To seriously quit the sugar! And just enjoy the innocence and beauty whilst it lasts.
+ How do you want to be remembered?
As inspirational. A game changer. A person who invoked positive change into many people's lives. Someone who lead a horde of powerful, confident, connected women.
Thank you so much for joining me Kate, it was a real pleasure to have you join me on my virtual couch and learn more about the wonderful woman that you are!!
