Here at The Wellness Insider, we are in the business of Body Confidence and we want you to feel great on the inside and out. By providing a platform of curated expert opinions, products and services, you get to make informed choices without any judgement. We believe that everyone should feel positive about themselves, no matter which part of their journey they are at in achieving their health goals. As such, we would like to build a community and inspire others by having members of our community share their body image stories.
Melissa Fann is the founder of The Wellness Insider and co-founder of Girl Boss Asia. With a Bachelors in Arts and Social Sciences (hons.) from NUS, she went into the finance industry where she accumulated a decade of experience in events management as well as traditional and digital marketing. She also spearheaded the social media and content marketing of a local brokerage, where she also revamped their website using UI/UX principles. With this experience, she aims to help independent wellness experts and small brands reach out to a wide audience through the platform and educate readers in a holistic manner.
As a marketer, she does not believe that messages that make women feel bad about themselves are a good way of advertising. Why can’t marketing messages be positive and still able to sell a product or service?
Her passion for providing a voice for body positivity stemmed from her own experience, where she too had faced issues about body image and had learnt how to move on to become confident. As such, she wants to empower others who are grappling with their own body issues with good information. This is why she started The Wellness Insider to be a proponent for body confidence, and she wants others to feel beautiful on the inside and out.
She has published a book entitled “Building Body Confidence“, which is a compilation of body-positive interviews. She has also been featured in The Asian Entrepreneur, Eros Coaching, L3 Hub, SAUCEink, Lady Boss Asia, Active Age, Entreé, StarNgage and Soul Rich Woman. As a speaker, Melissa has been invited to present at events such as the Youth Entrepreneurship Symposium, Sugar & Spice and Sexy Is Okay.
