Abigail, thanks so much for taking the time out of your busy day for this interview, and answering our questions about being an influencer.

1. Can you tell our readers what the “elevator pitch” for Abigail Keil is? In other words, tell us about your passion, and what keeps you moving forward as an influencer

Something that has constantly pushed me forward since the beginning is my urge to spread positivity and a healthy lifestyle to anyone and everyone who is/has been following me on my fitness journey.

2. Abigail, many of our readers are just starting out in their careers as influencers. What advice can you give to a young person just starting out who wishes to become an influencer and leader like you?

This may sound cliché, but just be yourself. People tend to spend their time and effort creating a character off of the supposed “wants” and “needs” of being an influencer. In this day and age…that won’t get you anywhere, so just be yourself.

3. Abigail, can you share with us your mindset when things get challenging in life, and how you come out the other side better than ever?

Nothing in life comes easy, I try my best to go through my life in a mindset that consists of positive energy, and use those rough times that everyone goes through to learn and grow more as a person.

4. For other people seeking to become an influencer, what simple advice can you give them to get followers?

Be authentic, people will love to see your true self, and the followers will come!

5. Abigail, when you think about influencers, what would you say is the one thing that all great influencers have in common?

Passion. Every influencer must feel the need to put something good out into the world, or feel passionate enough to express their feelings on topics and/or beliefs.

6. Abigail, when you think about communication, what would you say is the one thing that all communicators do well?

I believe that a needed attribution to a communicator would be getting their point across, yet listening to others opinions and working together with fellow communicators to create something that can be positively put out to the world.

7. What is your “Why”? Why do you get up in the morning, and what keeps you motivated to be your best every day?

I feel that everything happens for a reason. My “why” for getting up in the morning would be that maybe…just maybe something I can do today can help somebody else in their life or just overall improve another persons day and make them feel happier if they were feeling down.

8. Can you recommend a book that has had an influence in you as an influencer? How did it influence you?

As an influencer, I’m always looking for new opportunities and ways to introduce myself to the world and books are sometimes the best places to look for motivation. The book Year Of Yes by Shonda Rhimes, had an influence on me because it showed me that saying yes to new opportunities, although it may not always be easy, will only get me closer and closer to the goals I want to achieve in my life.

9. Abigail, if you had one thing to teach an 18 year old person about how to conduct themselves in the online world, what would it be?

The online world can be a tough place for a young adult, so make sure to always keep your focus on the positives! Be kind to yourself and others, always.

10. What is the one word that you believe has the most power in the English Language?

I believe the word “hope” is a word that has immense power in the English Language. No matter how tough a situation may be, having hope is the key to happiness and improvement.
