I knew Cassey Ho and I would get along from the first moment I clicked onto her popular fitness blog, “Blogilates.”
At the time, her most recent post on the site was titled, “Why I'm no longer ashamed of crying.” In case you guys didn't know, I essentially wrote on the exact same subject just a couple months ago.
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.”
That's the thing about Cassey Ho; despite being a wildly successful female entrepreneur who boasts four incredible, internationally known brands, she's still an unbelievably down-to-earth woman.
Or, As She Might Put It, She's A "Shero"
Ho defines the empowering word:
Though she's spent the last several years building an amazing fitness brand through YouTube and social media, Ho's next project will tackle something slightly different.
On June 21, the 30-year-old fitness guru will officially launch The Sheroic Podcast.
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 Should Listen To Cassey Ho
Another of her recent blog posts went into detail about what she refers to as her "soft" body, and why it's perfectly natural for her body to look this way.
Ho tells Elite Daily,
The viral YouTuber explained 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.
At the end of the day, Ho says women shouldn't 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."
