Hey beautiful, thanks for stopping by! I just wanted to share my story of how I got started with writing for Scottsdale Health Magazine! My work has been published by the magazine over 13 times and counting since being featured in a two page spread in their January 2018 article!
The journey to being a published fitness influencer has been a long, exciting one! I wanted to share what I did to get published in the first place, and how you can get published, too, if that’s your goal!
It all started January 1st, 2017. I kid you not. It was day one of 2017 and I had just gotten finished reading 10X Rule by Grant Cardone. I was super fired up about writing my goals out, and for some reason I wrote down “I will be published in a magazine this year.” I had never really thought about this goal until then, but I thought it sounded cool and would make me seem more legit to my clients. I wrote this goal down every single day the entire year.
Early in 2017, I heard about this fitness conference for “fitness entrepreneurs” called Fitposium, so I purchased my ticket and attended the conference in October of 2017. While at the conference, they had a free photo shoot for attendees, and they announced that they would select winners from the shoot to be published in a few magazines. I had my eyes set on Scottsdale Health Magazine over any other magazine because it was local and I knew all of my clients would get to see it. I wanted it REALLY bad, so during the photo shoot I gave it my all and focused on the goal I had been literally writing out for ten months.
On the last day of the conference, they announced winners of the shoot who were to be published in magazines. I was extremely nervous and wanted to hear my name so bad. They finally got to Scottsdale Health Magazine, and I was one of two winners who got to be published in a two-page spread! I was called up on stage, with my now really good friend Bella Hibbs, and we had both won our own two-page spreads in the magazine. It was really surreal and I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to this day.
At the conference I also got to meet Chris and Heidi Powell, and at the time I did not know I’d be in the same Scottsdale Health issue that he was on the cover of for January 2018! After the conference, I shot my two page spread photos in December of 2017, and my first article was published in the January 2018 issue of Scottsdale Health. Since then, I have written over 13 more articles for Scottsdale Health Magazine!
