MOTM #190: Magic Happens When You Keep Showing Up with Kirsty Grosart, aka GarageGymGirl

Monday, March 2nd, 2020

If you’re interested at all in handstands, bodyweight strengthening, adorable cats, #bigbutttherory, or fun drawings, then chances are you already know who Kirsty is and love her as much as I do.

Kirsty, like so many of my guests, is doing the thing. She started out in a desk job doing some crazy smart thing, but felt the call to create her own business in the movement world. Something was holding her back, however, and it wasn’t the typical fear that there wouldn’t be enough money… Kirsty was afraid of the lack of security from not having a “title” or proper “profession.” She had the capability and the skills to make it work, but perceived potential shame threatened to stop her. 

Her love of handstands and coaching won out in the end, and we are all so lucky because of it. Now Kirsty has a business where she does more of what she does like and less of what she doesn’t. Be like Kirsty. Show up, do the thing, and a career you love will follow.
