When it comes to putting yourself in the way of hard things, and having gone through hard experiences, this episode's guest has a few stories to tell.
You may know her as one of the final three people left on the 2016 series of Survivor in Somoa. Aside from her gruelling 54 days on the island, and the toughest 6 1/2 hour challenge she’d ever faced, El Rowland has a fascinating story. She has spent 13 years in her career in the army and only just last year made the courageous decision to leave and step into the unknown future of her own businesses.
In our chat El shares how hard this transition was but how much it was driven by a powerful purpose. A personal purpose, but one that is experienced by too many people and often in isolation.
El has experienced the depths of mental illness and shares the darkness of depression and anxiety that we often don’t hear about*, which you can hear still brings up emotions for her. She also unpacks how she has found her way back to hope.
This is a beautiful and real conversation with El Rowland.
