Tammy Strobel is a writer, photographer, and teacher. She created her blog, RowdyKittens.com, in late 2007 to improve her writing, share her story, and help people go small, think big, and be happy.
Tammy is the creator of A Simple Year, a 12-month course to help you make space for what matters to you.
In 2011, she and her husband, Logan, moved into a tiny house on wheels, where they lived full-time for four years.
In this episode, which I just absolutely loved recording, Tammy and I talk about the decade we've both spent sharing our lives online. We discuss online business, setting boundaries, and the damaging myth that everyone working on the internet is making tons of money.
She shares stories from the four years that her and her husband lived in a tiny house, and I get a hilarious crash course in how to use a compost toilet.
But we also talk about deeply personal things - such as body image, alcohol abuse, death, loss, grief, and more. Tammy shares about her dad's illness and death in 2012, and about the photography project that helped her to move through her grief.
Every moment of this conversation felt moving and real to me, and I'm so delighted to share it with you.
