Bree Hogan - Rock Your Goals the Podcast

Today I’m talking with the amazing and inspiring Bree Hogan from Starbrite Warrior.

Bree is a writer, speaker and health coach who lives with an auto-immune disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome, but not only does she not let it define her, she’s owning the heck out of it, reclaiming her health and her life, and building an amazing blog + health business.

We’re talking about why your niche isn’t the be all and end all, how your ‘why’ will keep you going when the going gets tough and why taking time off is key for your business and your sanity. We’re also talking self-care that doesn’t suck, setting boundaries in life and business and how you can tap into your biggest resource – yourself – to thrive and shine online.

I’m really excited to talk with Bree (and boy can we talk! It’s a long one today but there’s loads of juicy goodness in there for you) and I hope you enjoy the episode.
