Lessons from the Belle Gibson saga

No doubt you’ve all heard about the infamous creator of the very popular wellness app, The Whole Pantry, and its associated cookbook. From wellness guru to most hated woman in Australia, Belle Gibson leaves me with a tonne more questions than answers. Belle amassed thousands of followers on Instagram after sharing her story of being diagnosed with terminal brain cancer then turning to a holistic lifestyle curing herself.

Faker: Living Authentically

This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man. – Shakespeare, in Hamlet Sa wat dee Kah, I’m back! Wow, what a trip. I did get plenty of time to relax, reflect and meditate as well as ponder on a few blog post ideas. Perhaps it was all the sunshine or the mango fruit shakes, but my creative juices seemed to be flowing. But I’ve held back on publishing though because, to be honest, some of them still feel too raw. Not a raw, […]
