New website will feature life coach columns
Bermudian journalist Carla Zuill has launched a website designed to highlight the “triumphs, challenges and perseverance” of women in Bermuda and around the world.
Ms Zuill, who left Bermuda for the UK in 2016 to pursue opportunities for her sons, launched www.shehub.tv this month and will run the business from her base in Manchester.
The site will feature articles and videos created by a team of 16 contributors including Ms Zuill.
Ms Zuill said: “There are columns from a host of life coaches, both Bermudian and from other parts of the world.
“The SheMail section will offer advice from a women's perspective and Mind Of A Man ... well that speaks for itself.
“There are plans to implement a health and wellness section as well as a virtual marketplace, but in stages.
“I think people are going to love the advice from the ‘Mind of a Man' because he pulls no punches.
“And the Confessions of a Naughty Girl. I've been receiving positive feedback on that already.”
Ms Zuill founded the news site Todayinbermuda.com which closed at the end of last year. She has worked across the island's news media, including The Royal Gazette, the Bermuda Sun and TV station ZBM.
Ms Zuill said Today in Bermuda was targeted by hackers, which led to complications during an “an awesome news year”.
She returned to Bermuda for the Women's Empowerment Summit last October and realised she no longer wanted to run the site.
Ms Zuill said: “I knew in my heart that I was done with it.”
But after a conversation with her then-business development manager Sheena Bassett she made the decision to take a new direction. Ms Zuill said: “I felt like a weight had been lifted. Bermuda has become over saturated with news.
“The day-to-day grind was very difficult to do in light of being in a different time zone.
She added: “My life is not a bed of roses. I cry and get upset too.
“But I always stay true to myself even when others cannot handle it.
“The last two years have been extremely difficult, but I have a choice — lay down and let life happen to me, or stand up and grab it by the horns.”
•UPDATE: this article has been amended to reflect that Ms Zuill went to the UK for family reasons, instead of working as a life coach as originally reported.
