I am lucky enough to know incredible people who, at the core level, are empowering others. Whether it's educating, inspiring, demystifying, making a positive change.
This is why I want to write a book that reflects what I learnt from influential people who are spreading an incredible message of health (mental, physical, and all of the above).
My name is Fab, and I am the founder of Whole Influence and the Health Bloggers Community. I work with people who actually want to grow their influence to make a positive change. And yet, thanks to the rise of the new "social influencers", instead of realising the incredible impact we may have on 100 people with just one picture, we are still feeling discouraged because the number of the people who we influence is not a million or two.
(I am the overly inked one on the right by the way)
I believe most people who want to become a professional in my industry - health, and wellness - have a big responsibility of influencing others. It’s not just about consumer choices, it’s about making a positive impact, looking to inspire a change in people's behaviours and mindset. With this book, I aim to bring perceptive to what, in my personal opinion, being an influencer in any given field is - and what, after researching and cross-referencing habits and beliefs of over 1,000 “influencers”, makes one.
We touched over 10,500 bloggers and influencers in some way via our community, the HBC, in the last five years. They came and they went off on their mission, and most of them are now creating incredible things.
The book is a collection of stories from some of the top influencers out there (including Rupy Aujla, Hazel Wallace and Pixie Turner to name a few) and research on over 1,000 people on habits, rituals and what they have learnt along the way.

Kind Words from the Community
“The Health Bloggers Community portal is packed full of amazing tools, tips, valuable, practical, useable information and knowledge. It’s a real community of support, collaboration and accountability to grow better together. I’ve been blogging and coaching in the wellness industry for over 20 years and feel it’s an invaluable resource for everyone, whatever stage you are at. I would highly recommend joining.” Kim, multi award-winning Mind Body Ninja, author & tedx
“Through HBC I've met some wonderful people. Like-minded people who now inspire me every day with the work they do. Although I've only been an HBC-er for a few months, my skills and confidence have grown. This growth I attribute to the close-knit nature of the group and the undying support we all show each other.” Amy Meegan, The Baking Nutritionist
“The HBC has been incredible for me - not only in my blogging journey but also life in general as I have met the most inspiring & supportive people through this community!” Romy, Romy London UK
“I love being part of the Health Bloggers Community. It really does live up to its name; I've met so many friends through the community and there is a real spirit of support and collaboration. I feel that being part of the HBC has increased my confidence in my blog and given me many new opportunities.”
Rachel Evans, Healthy and Psyched
“I’ve been a part of the HBC community for what feels partly like a short time and partly like a long time. Short because I think it’s only been three months. Long because so much has changed and evolved since being welcomed into the community so greatly. HBC has given me the chance to attend the summit and learn from other blogger & influencers. It’s also given me the opportunity to grow and create events in my local area. I never would’ve thought it possible without this support. Thanks to you Fab you diamond” Cam Dempster - NLPerform
