Over the following weeks, I’m going to be showcasing the blog stars and experts featured in my book, The Million Dollar Blog.
Today, let’s hear from fitness vlogger Carly Rowena
Carly Rowena is a fitness instructor and fitness vlogger who is known for her down to earth, professional and realistic approach to everything from healthy eating, fast paced workouts, product reviews and motivational advice. She only launched in 2014, but has 360,000 subscribers on Youtube, and over 800,000 views per month on her blog and a waiting list for clients. Yet when Carly started, she wasn’t a fitness instructor and had no idea she even wanted to be one! As she says herself, vlogging and blogging changed her life.
What to learn from Carly
So many people think they have to know all the answers, and exactly what their path will be, before they even get started. They wait and wait for clarity and then when clarity doesn’t come, they never get started and their dreams definitely don’t come true. What I LOVE about Carly is that she started her blog and videos without really knowing where it would take her. She just did it anyway. And now she has a whole new career, a growing profile and a changed life!
Words of wisdom
“I used vlogging to change my life. If I had never gone on YouTube, I never would have become a personal trainer. I was really nervous and had very little confidence when I started. My first video was terrible, and I didn’t expect it to become anything, I just looked at it as something that would help me realise what I enjoyed.”
