9: Blogging, Business and Bad-assery with Gala Darling

Gala darling

In episode 9 on #MerryBiz we chat with author, teacher, and speaker originally from New Zealand, now living it up in New York City.

In her early twenties, she was completely miserable and thought the fastest way to fulfilment was to simply stop eating.

She overcame her sense of self-loathing and discovered the bad-assery of happiness.

She now dedicates her life to helping other women fall in love with themselves, too.

She blogs about how there’s magic around every corner.Writes books which show women how beautiful they are.

And speaks about finding your voice and blazing your own trail… and she does it all in sequins!

Published author and co-founder of The Blogcademy and Miracle Worker online programs.
