So when Ho and I finally met in person, I mentioned our mutual appreciation for a good cry, and she enthusiastically told me it was nice to meet a fellow crier.
Thats the thing about Cassey Ho; despite being a wildly successful female entrepreneur who boasts four incredible, internationally known brands, shes still an unbelievably down-to-earth woman.
Or, As She Might Put It, Shes A Shero
Ho defines the empowering word:
A shero is someone whos willing to take risks and fight for what they believe in, even in the face of adversity.
A shero is someone who isnt afraid to stand alone.
Though shes spent the last several years building an amazing fitness brand through YouTube and social media, Hos next project will tackle something slightly different.
On June 21, the 30-year-old fitness guru will officially launch .
Alongside fellow female entrepreneur Lisa Bilyeu, Ho tells Elite Daily she plans to tackle a wide range of topics in the podcast, from body image, to business, to relationships, and anything and everything women want to learn about.
And, For Real, Women Listen To Cassey Ho
Another of her recent blog posts went into detail about what she refers to as her soft body, and why its perfectly natural for her body to look this way.
Ho tells Elite Daily,
No matter what your body actually looks like, its how strong you are that really matters.
And sometimes, what you is healthy, like having a six-pack, you dont know what means that person took to get there. It may look healthy, but is it really?
The viral YouTuberexplained that, at one point, while she was in the midst of training for a bikini competition, she may have looked healthy on the outside, but on the inside, she felt far from it.
People told me I looked so good, but the truth was, my cognitive ability wasnt as sharp as it normally is. It was very difficult for me to run my business. I lost myself during that time.
But now, having a softer body, while still strong, I can hangout with friends, eat food that I love, and I just feel balanced and like Im in harmony with my body.
At the end of the day, Ho sayswomen shouldnt scrutinize their bodies for six-pack definition, or obsess over arbitrary numbers on a scale.
Instead, she implores women to ask themselves, Am I giving my gift to the world and doing what I want to be doing? Am I fulfilling my purpose in this world?
You are so much more than your body. You are, as Cassey Ho would say, a shero.
