My daughter is now part of the What I've Learnt team and has started working on some mini interviews with me. Her meeting with head chef from Brae - Dan Hunter - got her a wonderful insight into the simplicity but absolute creativity behind the number 44th best restaurant the world. Dan not only spoke to her, but to every customer that dined there - answering any question they had. I think the important lesson from this is no matter how successful you are - it's important to remember the little things, and to remain modest and kind. You never know where it will take you. @chefdanhunter @braerestaurant #inspiration #brae #danhunter #whativelearnt

Sometimes the best lessons are learnt when you open your mind up to the stories of others, their experiences and perceptions. We don't always know things as much as we think we do. Re-post @young.and.twenty #whativelearnt #storytelling #openmind #quoteoftheweek

Amazing story told by Selena Gomez at the Hand in Hand telethon - which is raising money for all recent hurricane victims. Selena sheds tears over the Salvidar family who drowned in their family car during the disaster. Never forget the power of sharing a story in order to unite people during moments of such tragedy. #handinhand #selenagomez #hurricane #whativelearnt

The Melbourne Writers Festival featured so many writers here from around the globe .. I was reminded of this wonderful Australian author's words ...
"I knew I could never be a poet starving in a garrett. I used writing to empower myself.I always heard my mum's voice about making your own way. I always wanted to be a writer.I am who I am because of mum. she said 'Nikki you never rely on anyone else but yourself' Education was my way out."
