Briony Benjamin is a prolific viral video producer. After creating
cheeky and impactful videos for Australia's leading purpose-led
campaigning groups, she landed the job of Executive Producer of
Video at women's media site Mamamia. However, a few months into the
job she started to feel crappy ... All. The. Time. Doctors told her
she was just stressed and should rest more and learn to meditate.
She started to think maybe she was a bit crap at life and not cut
out for a busy, fast-paced media career. But it turned out she had
cancer, all through her body.
Unsure of what was to come, Briony turned the camera on herself and started documenting her journey. This resulted in a short video, 'You Only Get One Life', which went viral. Its raw portrayal of a journey through cancer - combined with the powerful reminder that life is fleeting and precious - touched millions. In Life Is Tough (But So Are You), Briony shares what the experience taught her about navigating tricky times and finding the new path into your next awesome chapter.
