Look at you, wondering how Arianna Huffington is my BFF. It’s quite simple, I emailed her and she emailed me back. But, the backstory isn’t that simple.
For two years I had been sending submissions through a general HuffPost online form. Yet, I had never received a response. While searching online one day I saw a blog post from a woman who said she emailed Arianna Huffington.
For giggles, I said let me try this. I never expected a response back. I emailed Arianna Huffington on January 11, 2017, and received a response back on February 13, 2017.
In that short timeframe, I had started to focus on building out the content for my site. By the time Mrs. Huffington emailed me back I was a completely different person. I’m glad I kept going.
The great part of this story is that Thrive Global shares my mission. That mission is to allow others to see the greatness in their lives.
I did, however, fill out a form and I was immediately granted access to write for Thrive Global. You can read my latest article here.
