It’s no secret that I have been on a self-development journey. I am on the hunt to be the best version of myself there is… in life, business, and finances. Whatever area of my life needs work… Right now it is ALL the areas. I thought I would share who I have been drawn to in helping me along my journey. These people are either in all or one of these categories: Personal Growth, Self Development, Business, or Financial. Here are the 19 Influencers to follow for personal growth.
If you were to look at my YouTube or podcast history you will see a lot of these people. My social media pages are overflowing with inspirational words from them all. I want to see positive and motivational words every day. These 19 people somehow, some way every day inspire me to work on myself.
Self Development, Business
I have recently had the pleasure of reading Girl, Wash Your Face and it changed my life. Became a fan of Rachel’s I found her Facebook group called #madeformore. It is such an uplifting group of people who genuinely want others to succeed. In that group, they have branches of groups for cities in different states. Since I live in Tampa now, I joined the Tampa Bay Risers. They have local meetups to discuss life and business. Generally to just make friends. These are the type of people I need in my life to remind me constantly I am #madeformore
As of 2022, I am not a fan of Rachel Hollis and some of the things she has said. I still do admire Girl Wash Your Face and Girl, Stop Apologizing. I still think they are great books and do recommend you read them. However, Rachel Hollis is not who I thought she was. It is fine if you still like her… to each their own. She is just not my cup of tea anymore and that is A-Okay.
Jay has some enlightening conversations with celebrities and other influential people on his podcast “On Purpose”. I follow him on all social media platforms and enjoy seeing his words of encouragement. He really shows that we can not judge a book by its cover. He inspires others to be kind and never give up on themselves.
Gary Vaynerchuk is my latest obsession. At first, watching his YouTube videos I thought he was annoying, cocky, and loud. However, once I watched more of his videos I realized he is not any of those things at all. He is passionate. He wants to show people how to make money, how to be the best versions of themselves and most of all don’t give a fuck what other people think. You do you.
19 influencers to follow
Were halfway through these 19 influencers and Aileen the founder of Lavendaire. It is a YouTube channel focusing on personal growth + lifestyle. Aileen shares her knowledge and her inspiration for creating your dream life. Her YouTube channel description says “Lavendaire is for the passionate, the fearless, and the dreamers who believe. For those who are smart, curious, and conscious, with an open mind, a love for learning, and a deep desire to live a brilliant and vibrant life.” I am all for those types of people!
The Financial Diet
The Budget Mom
I have talked about The Budget Mom before and becoming an all-cash spender. Kumiko has inspired me along with thousands of others on how we view money. Her method is so easy to follow especially since I was technically already doing it. I was budgeting every week, but I was not doing all-cash.
One Big Happy Life
Jordan Page is my girl! She is the one who started this whole thing for me. I love all her videos and tips. She is the mom I aspire to be between her snack ideas for the kids and her block schedule system. I am surely on my way.
Sam Laura Brown
Kalyn is the queen of gyst days. Gyst is “Getting your shit together”. It’s the day of the week when you just get all the things you have been putting off during the week. It’s also the day you set yourself up for the rest of the week. Be it meal planning, picking out outfits, or planning things you have to do. You take one day to get yourself organized and set up for the week to come.
Michele – Our Redonkulous Life
You know I had to add myself to this list. I am CONSTANTLY inspiring myself to be a better version of myself. If you have a list of influencers who inspire you to be better… You best be putting yourself on that list. I put myself 20 on the list, but in reality, I am #1 in my book. No matter what the other 19 post that is inspirational. It is up to me if I am going to apply what they said to my life.
