I’ve always been a champion for strong female characters. Which is why no matter which genre I toy with when I write fiction, the protagonist is consistently a badass woman.
Growing up, I lived with my dad. But, my mom and my sisters are all tremendous women I was lucky to have around. I’ve known many female friends and teachers who knew when to hug me and when to tell me to cut the shit. I’ve also known many women entrepreneurs and creative entrepreneurs who have continued to push forward and inspire others to do the same.
Stephanie Allen is on Love Your Enthusiasm today, talking about being a strong woman. She is a multi-faceted human being—a kickboxer, trainer, and a writer.
At the age of 23, Stephanie was in a horrific car accident. Walking was the only activity she could manage. Eventually, by focusing on simply putting one foot in front of the other, she recovered and became stronger physically and mentally from this experience.
On today’s show, she rehashes her recovery journey and what it took to be able to return to herself and her longtime love…kickboxing. Even though we explore some deep shit together, Stephanie is also a lot of fun. Be prepared to have some laughs and feel motivated to get off your ass to kick some ass.
