Women That Inspire Me #1

Women That Inspire Me #1

I’ve recently been toying with the idea of starting a blogging series about the women that inspire me, and today is the day I give it a go. The ways that these women inspire me can be very different, it can be inspiring me to be healthy, work harder, develop my skills, aspire to be a successful blogger. They can inspire me to be a better person and truer to myself.

They are inspiring me in ‘superficial’ ways to soul changing ways. Either way, I’m grateful to have found them and thought you might be too.

Erin May Henry

“I am an Australian Business and Online Strategy Coach, and Founder of The May Collective.

My Mission is to empower women to grow their loyal and engaged audience using digital strategies to position themselves as a thought leader so they can elevate their business to the level of success that they dream of.

With over 2.5 Million views on YouTube and a global tribe of engaged Girl Bosses, I now know what it takes to spread your message, stand out from the crowd, be the game change you were born to be and feel confident in doing so, but for me, it wasn’t always like this…”


I only came across one of Erin’s YouTube videos a handful of weeks ago, but since then I’ve gone through and watched, pretty much, all of her videos. I have gone right back to the beginning of her Instagram, I have signed up for some of the free worksheets she offers, I have joined her Facebook group.. Basically, I’ve stalked the hell out of her… of course, in a totally normal, none-creepy, modern day way…

Because of my (well-balanced) stalking I’ve been able to compile some of her best videos for you! I am going to break them into some groups based on what the majority of the video was about.

Some Of The Best

Law Of Attraction

Being A GirlBoss

Goals & Success

Motivations & Confidence


To round up the overall way that I have found Erin to have inspired and motivated me is to try new things regarding my blog, to push a bit harder, to invest in it more if I wish to see profits and progress from it, and be excited about the prospects of trying – and failing. It’s all growth. I find her voice so calming as well, I’ve been watching her videos, both with my full attention and whilst just having it playing in the background. If she sold those old style audio tapes (Friends Quote: “You don’t need to smoke, you are a strong, confident woman who does not need to smoke.. a strong confident woman.”) I’d be all over it… only for business tips, not smoking.

She basically just makes me want to use terms like ‘girlboss’ and ‘go-getter’.. Stuff that I never thought I’d be hearing myself say. So, here I am, putting my hands up for girl empowerment and genuinely feeling pretty kick arse (whilst putting in the work behind the scenes).

Have you heard of Erin before? Who are some of the women that inspire you? Whether it’s business or personal inspiration.
