Who am I?
My name is Bonnie, I grew up in a small city in NSW Aus and I’m 22 (I sound like I’m auditioning for the Bachelorette).
I was an average sporty aussie kid turned your average aussie teen, I explored alcohol, sneaking out, throwing covert parties, you name it my friends and I probably did it.
I’ve always been an extremely driven person when it came to things I was passionate about, and if I couldn’t find a way to succeed I would move onto something else, I was all over the shop!
When I was 8 years old I started dancing.. game changer. I found a sport that did not necessarily require rules or even teamwork, you didn’t have to keep score or train to make a grand final. I found a way to express myself (sounds cliché – but so true). When moving my body & performing the feeling of uncertainty and angst completely dissipates.
Through dance came my passion for fitness, mind, body & lifestyle.
What am I doing now?
Well, I have no idea. After 2 years out of home & in a new city, hustling a job (I loved by the way), having no money left after rent and bills, struggling with a social life i was comfortable with, I moved back home. I had it in my head I would spend 3-6 months with Mum, decide what I’d like to do & then move away again. I went & fell in love… (oops), being the ambitious person I am, I continued to move forward despite being in a serious relationship, but instead of moving away I decided to stay.
My life was great but there was something missing! All I wanted was time and financial freedom (don’t we all) and to work for myself, to manage my own damn life & not have to work for anyone else.
From here, my business was born. I have now been running my dance studio for 14 successful months now, and it doesn’t look like its slowing down anytime soon!
Sidenote: No longer in love – I over came it and it has made me 10 times stronger & more focused #boybye
I’m running my own business, surrounded by friends and family… why the F**k do I still feel unsettled? So I decided to blog.
I feel the need to share my experiences, knowledge and inspiration with those that may be feeling the same way as me.
