Q1. What did you want to be growing up?

I’m sure I said many different things growing up but some that I remember was an interior designer and a professional dancer which I did. I’m sure I said many more though.

Q2. Tell us all about you and the story of how you have gotten to this point in your life?

I believe that we create our own reality moment by moment. I have to be honest with you, though. I haven’t always been on this spiritual journey. In my ‘past life’ (as I like to call it) I was a professional dancer at the Moulin Rouge in Paris, actress, TV presenter, and the occasional model. I entertained quite a destructive path for many years which looked a lot like this…

Running around at a million miles per hour to avoid sitting with myself, moving around and living out of a suitcase, working way too much in order to ‘feel’ successful, not loving myself at all, I was highly stressed and anxious, drugs and alcohol were my go-to quick fixes, I was dealing with panic attacks and lived off champagne and canapés. And my anxiety would allow me on average four hours of sleep a night.

Living like this it was only a matter of time before my exhausted and run down body packed up and went on holidays. Along with adrenal fatigue, thyroid problems, high levels of mercury, serious hormonal imbalances, depression, an eating disorder, loads of vitamin and mineral deficiencies, SIBO, hives, candida, adult acne, eczema all over my body and a serious case of the cold sore virus, my body was screaming at me to STOP. It was sending me loud, bright red, warning signs that it had had enough. My entire immune system shut down and the severity of the cold sore virus sent me straight to the hospital. My life was a mess and I looked like a mess. I had cold sores all over my face, in my mouth and down my throat, I couldn’t eat, talk or even open my mouth. It looked like someone had taken a blow torch to my face.

Looking back, it was such a pivotal moment for me as the one thing I needed in order to work was my body and that was no longer working. It was the first time I realized that if you don’t have your health you’ve got nothing and you can’t do what you desire. It’s like the Universe was saying to me “you aren’t meant to be doing this anymore sweetheart and the only way you will listen is if we make you stop”.

Got the lesson!

IT WAS MY WAKE UP CALL…

  • I realized I had to take back control of my health, my life, and my happiness.
  • I realized I needed to master my inner Mean Girl if I wanted to live my dream life.
  • I realized I had no idea what self love was but I had to learn it quickly.
  • I realized I had to start to take radical responsibility for my own health and happiness.
  • I realized I was the only person who could make the shifts.
  • I realized that the decision to live my best life lay with me.
  • I realized I had to stop looking outside of myself to find happiness and start to connect with my inner self, my truth, my soul, my spirit, the bigger me.

Throughout my journey I realized just how out of balance my life was in all areas and how I was always looking externally instead of internally for happiness, acceptance and approval. I was experiencing extreme emotional highs and lows and I was on a constant roller-coaster ride of sugar highs and lows.

It wasn’t fun!

This sparked a thought within me, if I was feeling like this, how many other people out there must be struggling with the same thing?

I realized I had to take back control of my health, my life, and my happiness.

So I studied at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to get my holistic health coaching certification. I did my yoga and meditation teacher training, I studied life coaching and Acu Energetics, I read every personal development and spiritual book I could get my hands on. I attended every workshop and seminar I could, and I became obsessed with sharing everything I was remembering. I could never have imagined what has unfolded for me since then. Stuff beyond my wildest dreams.

I Was Determined To Heal Myself Naturally And Get My Health & Life Sorted.

I didn’t love myself, but I learned to fall in love with myself, how to look after myself and how to feed my mind, my body and my soul the best, most nourishing things Mother Nature has to offer. I learned how to master my inner Mean Girl and become Wildly Wealthy, Fabulously Healthy and Bursting With Love. My intention is to empower others in all areas of their life, their health, wealth and love.

To step up and to help others fall head over heels back in love with the Goddess staring at you in the mirror.

Q3. What do you think are the three biggest mistakes wemake when it comes to achieving goals?

I personally don’t think of anything like a mistake. I choose to see everything as opportunities for growth.

In saying that, I think 3 big areas both men and women can be more mindful of are…

  1. Comparing yourself to others. This is the biggest waste of time and energy and will only slow you down toward reaching your goals and dreams.
  2. Caring what other people think. Another big waste of time and energy. Stay in your own lane and always do what’s true for you.
  3. Choose love instead of fear in every moment.

Q5. Tell how you process workload stress or personal stress or just too much coming at you at one time? Ex: Exercise, Meditation, Journal or all the above.

What is your?

Daily meditation, yoga, fresh air, ocean swims, getting sun on my skin, moving my body, going to bed early, prioritizing self care, organization and never putting too much in my calendar so that I don’t feel overwhelmed.

Full Bio: HERE

Multiple bestselling author, keynote and TEDx speaker, #1 podcast host, and queen of mastering your Mean Girl

I BELIEVE

We are all miracles. We are all so unique and have big beautiful hearts to share with the world. We all matter and that choosing love over fear is the best fun ever! 

I’M NOT ABOUT:

Gossip, sweeping things under the rug, long emails (I like to get straight to the point), not taking responsibility for my actions and rushing. 

YOU CAN FIND ME:

Writing, interviewing the most epic humans on earth, speaking on stages, cooking, dancing, singing (badly), having a picnic with my girlfriends or smooching my husband.

DAILY RITUALS:

Meditation and visualization, morning cuddles and gratitude in bed with my handsome hubs, yoga, ocean swims, beach walks, nourishing food and sunshine.

I believe that we create our own reality moment by moment.

I have to be honest with you, though. I haven’t always been on this spiritual journey. In my ‘past life’ (as I like to call it) I was a professional dancer at the Moulin Rouge in Paris, actress, TV presenter, and the occasional model. I entertained quite a destructive path for many years which looked a lot like this…

And my anxiety would allow me on average four hours of sleep a night.

Living like this it was only a matter of time before my exhausted and run down body packed up and went on holidays.  

Along with adrenal fatigue, thyroid problems, high levels of mercury, serious hormonal imbalances, depression, an eating disorder, loads of vitamin and mineral deficiencies, SIBO, hives, candida, adult acne, eczema all over my body and a serious case of the cold sore virus, my body was screaming at me to STOP. It was sending me loud, bright red, warning signs that it had had enough. 

My entire immune system shut down and the severity of the cold sore virus sent me straight to the hospital. My life was a mess and I looked like a mess. I had cold sores all over my face, in my mouth and down my throat, I couldn’t eat, talk or even open my mouth. It looked like someone had taken a blow torch to my face.

So, my darling – do you love yourself? I sure as hell didn’t! But I learned to fall in love with myself, how to look after myself and how to feed my mind, my body and my soul the best, most nourishing things Mother Nature has to offer. I learned how to master my inner Mean Girl and become Wildly Wealthy, Fabulously Healthy and Bursting With Love.

I WANT TO HELP YOU DO THE SAME…

THE ART OF MANIFESTING MONEY INTERVIEW SERIES: 👇🏽

In April 2016, I developed a Interview Series called, “The Art of Manifesting Money”, to help shift the paradigm that following your passions as a career means struggling financially. I hand-selected leading experts that shared deep, important insights about how to create change, more quickly and effectively than ever.

Melissa was also apart of my interview series. I have included our 2016 Interview Below as well.

🔻🎙In my interview with Melissa:

We cover how #mediation has helped change her life.

Also we briefly discuss her amazing book  Mastering Your Mean Girl: The No-BS Guide to Silencing Your Inner Critic and Becoming Wildly Wealthy, Fabulously Healthy, and Bursting with Love.  She explains, how that sneaky voice inside your head tells you that you’re not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, whatever enough, is your Mean Girl, your ego.  The pages of her book is layered with wise, searing, honest words you can actually relate to and importantly, actionable steps to help you on your own journey to self-acceptance.

“YES, you do matter!!!!!!”
