EDITOR and PUBLISHER
Editor and Publisher, Dana Dinnawi is a holistic health and wellness lifestyle coach certified by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She is in the business of showing strong, smart, independent women (like you) how to take back control of their lives . . . from what they eat and how they look, to what they do and how they feel.
She helps them break out of the cycle of yo-yo dieting so they can shed the last stubborn kilos, and learn how to eat for life so they can regain their energy and self-confidence to refocus on themselves and create a guilt-free lifestyle that fills them up daily.
Cindy grew up in Australia before moving to London in 2003, where she lives with her husband.
Having a corporate background of 15 years in law and financial services, in 2014 Cindy took her passion for health and wellness to a new level and trained as a Yoga teacher. Not satisfied there, she combined this with both a health and life coaching certification in 2016.
In 2016, Cindy set up her own lifestyle and business coaching company, Live Love Life Well Ltd by Cindy Benbow. Cindy now dedicates her time to teaching other female entrepreneurs confidence, mindset and simple business structures so they too can create freedom based businesses.

Helen Fitness, executive success coach and mentor, is an adventurous, down-to-earth New Zealander, and a former global leader in the insurance industry. Her 20-year corporate career took her from Auckland, to Melbourne, Paris, and London, where she finally honoured the desire to challenge herself more by becoming a coach entrepreneur.
Not to do things by half, in 2015, she:
- Left her comfortable position and attractive salary;
- Changed her career to be an executive success coach and mentor;
- Relocated, yet again, back to her heartland, Paris;
- Established her own enterprise; and
- Changed her relationship status;
all without a Plan B!
She is driven to see more diversity in leadership and to shake up the way boardrooms around the world do things. She believes it is the only way the corporate world will thrive in the future - to do and think differently, and to impact the world in a more positive way.
As a former school teacher, she is a big advocate of education, and she sees coaching women for growth and to help them challenge their status quo is an extension of this.
Coaching women to be more visible, to expect more for themselves in life and career, and to set clear healthy boundaries, clients develop unshakable confidence to create their own opportunities. She can be heard interviewing women of influence on her bi-weekly podcast, the Womanly Art of Leadership Sessions.
She lives in Paris, with a capricious cat called Clafoutis, and if she couldn’t travel, she would surely shrivel up and die.
