This episode’s a
highly-requested collaboration with YouTuber/creator Rowena Tsai! Rowena has
her own channel on self care and productivity, and also Beauty Within: a beauty
& lifestyle channel celebrating inner beauty and wellness.









Aileen and Rowena
explore Rowena’s escape from a dark and lonely place as a teenager, similar
journeys in creating content in the self love and personal development space,
and honoring yourself by being vulnerable.





And a special twist:
Rowena turns the interview around to ask Aileen questions about letting go of
control as a creator with a team, responding to criticism online, and more!

Quotes:





  • Success is being able to go to sleep happy every day, content with who you are as a person.
  • You have the rest of your life to do better and be better.
  • If you block yourself off from being sad … you’re depriving yourself from every other feeling.
