A brand new year and a brand episode of The Stories That Changed My Life! New Year’s Resolutions at the ready? It’s time to meet the ultimate life editor – blogger, YouTuber and, now, published writer – Anna Newton. Are you feeling two-thousand-and-nineteeny?
The career that 75% of children would like? Forget doctors, pilots, teachers and engineers, today a massive three quarters of kids would like to be a YouTuber. And Anna Newton of The Anna Edit is one of a small number of people who is actually living that very dream. No office hours, commuting or HR policies – Anna runs her own show with half a million subscribers tuning in to her videos. Her next move? Something much more traditional – publishing a book! Although Anna’s channel was originally focused on beauty, her book – An Edited Life – is all about organisation. In the latest episode of The Stories That Changed My Life, we caught up with Anna to hear more about her favourite life stories and literary stories, plus uni romances, getting tattooed and the empowered women in her family.
But wait, there’s MORE! Fancy winning a signed copy of Anna’s brand new book, An Edited Life? We’ve got TWO copies to give away! “Declutter every aspect of your life – from your wardrobe, exercise schedule and food budget to your phone, bookshelves and beauty regime – with this realistic guide to getting neat and keeping things that way.”
