ABOUT THIS EPISODE
It was such a delight to chat to award-winning lifestyle blogger April J Harris, also known as The 21st Century Housewife.
In this episode, April shares her evolution from arriving in England as a confident 23-year-old woman to an award-winning, global blogger of 19 years. As we enter 2022, April is still evolving, doing what she loves, working together with other women to inspire and motivate.
“I’m very passionate about women supporting each other whether we are housewives, whether we have businesses, whether we have a career outside the home, we’re all working together to make our families and our own experience the best it can be”
Of course, we talk about April’s confidence in this podcast episode. In particular, April shares how grief played a significant part in her journey of self-discovery to be who she is today.
“My parents died very quickly, within sort of six weeks of each other. And I suddenly found myself completely adrift, I was still doing the blog, I was still doing everything else. But I didn’t know who I was anymore. And it was, it was a really strange and challenging time for me. And I didn’t know how to move forward. And I desperately needed someone to unlock my hidden confidence”
Tune in to hear WHO and HOW April Unlocked Her Hidden Confidence.
April and I share a love of cooking. April is a superb cook and is lucky enough to have original vintage family recipes. She regularly hosts online cooking classes and shares family recipes on her blog.
I am intrigued by her Red Wine Brownies and can’t wait to cook them! This is a free downloadable recipe available on April’s blog at https://apriljharris.com. You can also sign up here for April’s 5 Vintage Family Recipes, her regular newsletter and book her forthcoming Zoom cooking classes.
In the episode April refers to the book ‘Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway’ by Susan Jeffers. You can order this book HERE from Amazon.
“I would really encourage people to be kind to themselves where they are right now. Because where you are right now is the best place to start. There’s no scale or thing that you have to be or achieve. You can grow into your own true self and your own true confidence from where you are right now.”
