A big week, as I got the book – Uncommon Courage – released into the world. It’s such an interesting experience launching a book, especially one as vulnerable as this, but I don’t mind being vulnerable. I did mind when I was younger, but those days are long past. I’ve always found when I share my truth, it helps others dealing with similar situations.
My reason for writing this book is, I wanted to put hope out into the world, especially at this time. So if you read it, please do tell me what you think and I’m very keen to know your favorite chapters. Had some fun conversations about this last night, after the launch.
If you want to know what the book is about, please do read my blog: Proud to launch my new book, Uncommon Courage. This really goes through what the book discusses. Big topics.
And if you’re interested in catching the launch, here you go. It was fun. Warwick Merry is a brilliant MC (as you’ll see), and grateful to have Joanne Flinn, Samantha Gayfer, Steve Johnson and my sister Phillipa Edwards join me. Thank you for all of the amazing support. I really appreciate it.

There is so much heartache in the world. Famine is here and it’s going to be significantly more devastating than what is currently being reported. A friend in the global charities space told me 20 countries are facing famine – 20! Not just one. PLEASE donate : World Food Program., UN Refugee Program, PowerOf , Kiva.org, Soi Dog Foundation.
If you are interested in feeding those without food in Phuket, we have a #OnePhuket WeBoon account. We’d appreciate any support you can provide.
Here’s a wonderful opportunity to support Soi Dog Foundation. Doing amazing work – John’s June Walking Challenge For The Dogs.
We need generosity like we’ve never had before. I you have wealthy friends, please speak to them. Those who can afford the least are still the most generous.
