{Podcast 002} Alana Helbig: free-spirited gypsy and She Makes Magic co-founder

Alana’s always been an epically positive influence in my life, but perhaps never more so than in the past couple of years. The courageous change she’s embraced lately is pretty bloody extraordinary.

So I’m super stoked that my dear older sister, bestie and fellow She Makes Magic creator — Alana Helbig — is sharing her story on the podcast today.

Five years ago, Alana started feeling like her life just wasn’t quite right somehow. Everything in her life didn’t seem to fit anymore: her job, her university studies, her toxic relationship with drugs and alcohol, even her sexuality.

Then her five-year relationship ended. Struggling to let go, Alana threw herself into a monumental journey of healing and for the first time in her life, began to truly own who she is.

I’ve been asking Koren to share her story on the blog for what feels like an age because, despite her humble opinion, what she has done over the past two years is nothing short of remarkable.

In 2013 she said goodbye to her position as a political reporter with a major Australian daily newspaper, The Courier-Mail, to launch herself out into the world as a freelance journalist. At the same time she moved to a foreign country — Spain — where she knew no one and didn’t even speak the language.

Now that takes guts!

And, as with everything she does, she’s had roaring success. Continue Reading →

She Makes Magic: The Podcast Series

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know
what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.
It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive.”
~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer
