Barbie Parsons is Barbie the Welder. That’s not just her nickname, it’s the identity of a woman who has forged her dream life in the fire of adversity.
Barbie has gone from welfare and hauling scrap metal to support her family, to becoming a world-renowned metal sculptor and five-time author. Her YouTube channel has subscribers from over 53 countries and her story of resilience, love, and passion for her work has inspired a new generation of artists, creators, and entrepreneurs.
When she first had the idea to become a metal sculptor, no one believed in her. This interview is about the journey through self-doubt, fear, failure, and the incredible life we can create when we have the courage to believe in ourselves.
