HOP #69: How To Get Out Of A Rut with Barbara Siemen @TheChickWire

"Stop the excuses...go do what you love! I just signed up for an adult dance class, and I suck at dancing"
Imagine building a blog, a social media following, and a highly engaged audience - and then receiving a letter from a Fortune 100 business telling you to shut it all down...
That is exactly what happened to Barara Siemen, and her first blog "Farm Barbie". Her original blog shared her life "on the farm" and her name was "Barbara", so "Farm Barbie" was a perfect fit - unless your Mattel!
After a tough legal battle, Barbra had no choice but to shut everything down. For most people, that would be the end of blogging. Driven by a purpose to create a stronger generation of women (especially for her daughter) she dusted herself off and reemerged as The Chick Wire.
Now, Barbra shares stories of empowering women from students to a firefighter.
