Cara Szellemes

Founder at 180Selfcare

Brisbane, Australia

I’m the Amazon No. 1 bestselling author of Your Brilliant Un-Career: Women, Entrepreneurship and Making the Leap and an award-winning thought leadership coach, contract content strategist and copywriter.

My sweet spot is working with STEM professionals, entrepreneurs, creatives and changemakers-- on how to tap into and generate content that matters and grow engaged communities so they can establish themselves as the go-to experts in their fields.

Over the past 10 years, I’ve focused on working with businesses and organisations on strategic content marketing and community-development projects across tourism, finance, tech, engineering, academia, non-profits and government.

I’ve worked with Queensland Science, Workup Queensland, The Woodford Folk Festival, Food Connect Foundation, Content Snare, MissingSchool, Synergy8, the National Archives of Australia (with a content agency), GHD (the engineering company not the hair appliance), and I'm currently primarily working with blockchain companies, Civic Ledger and PAC (Unido).

I’ve contributed to major digital sites like Waterworld Magazine, Social Media Examiner, Problogger, Content Marketing Institute, and Smart Company.

I believe in using my superpowers for good, so after a really difficult few months, in June last year, I started an initiative to empower 1 million people to beat anxiety and depression through the power of radical self-care. It's called 180Selfcare. It started with a personal quest to practice 180 days of radical self-care and considering what's happened for me in the past few months (ie. my partner's tragic death), it's been a lifesaver (literally). Follow @180selfcare on Instagram for updates and inspiration and join me in sharing the magic of radical self-care.
