What was it like growing up as Heidi Anderson?
I am a country girl at heart still who grew up in country NSW in town called Bathurst!
I loved life! I always have. I was always the one in trouble in class for talking too much or talking back to the teachers 👩🏫 Mum & Dad are both business owners & have worked super hard to get where they are.
They instilled work ethic into my bro & I & now both of us are high achievers. He is a historian & author. I think I’ve always had anxiety but it wasn’t until I moved to UK 🇬🇧 in my 20s that I needed to get help! I look back at my past & I’m truly grateful for my home life, family & friends! I wouldn’t change it in a second!
What do you feel is the biggest misconception about you?
How can the funny, confident girl be anxious & unhappy with the way she sees herself! I’ve always been confident in my personality but the way I saw myself for a very long time was just with hate & a lot of people are surprised by that. Read about the moment I shared this with listeners in 2012 that changed my life - audio in there too https://www.perthnow.com.au/opinion/heidi-anderson/heidi-anderson-start-the-journey-to-love-yourself-and-your-body-ng-b88760561z

Why is having multiple identities important to you?
I’m not really sure but all of them are apart of me & each of them make me feel real, happy & bring out different parts of my personality & I love that!
What do you believe your secret is to balancing all your different passions and pursuits?
Ha ha sometimes I think people would say I don’t have a balance but I genuinely love what I do.
I need 7 hours sleep a night! I have to exercise for my mental health & well being! I must have down time where I just sit on couch & watch trash tv 📺 & I always meditate - daily! I schedule in massages & enjoy time with my fiancé Griffo, our time is very special to me! Sometimes I get it wrong but I’m a work in progress 🙈
What advice would you give to other women out there who want to pursue their passions but are too afraid?
You can’t teach passion so whatever it is you’re doing...if you’re not passionate about it...Find a passion project! Life is too short to live a half arsed job or life! Skills & qualifications can be taught! Passions cannot! Life is too short to be unhappy so whatever it is! Chase it & live it!
