~MY STORY IN 3 MINUTES~
THE BEACH IS MY BACKYARD BUT THE CITY BECAME MY HOME
IT’S NOT BEAUTIFUL, BUT IT BEGAN
My journey to self transformation began more than 10 years ago; however; the grand image finalised after my first trip to Paris in 2015, where I decided "after an argument with my travel partner" that I was over people pleasing, lacking confidence and feeling judged for who I was and what I wanted. My journey expanded as a professional blogger, to blog coach , personal development coach and now a lifestyle & business success coach. It's been a trying ride, but I wouldn't trade it for anything less. Because without my experience and expertise I would not be guided here to now teach you how to become the best version of yourself in life, career or business!
"EVERYTHING WAS GREAT, LIFE WAS AWESOME, AND THEN BAM!”
This happened (I lost my job, my relationship, my apartment got mold & I had a debt collector blowing up my phone as if he was my boyfriend). But I'm so glad it did because I learned that the life I was living wasn’t actually defined by me & it wasn’t where I wanted to be, and now THIS is happening (I have an amazing apartment filled with daily fresh air, I’m in love with myself so much deeper than before, I launched my own coaching business and have taught worked with hundreds of women globally and my relationship with money is so much more abundant than I ever thought possible)."
Hi I'm Menellia and up until the age of 27 “not too long ago” I still didn't know what my life purpose was. After spending 2 years of rebuilding, seeking clarity and working on my self-discovery journey, I was able to find the confidence I needed to follow my own life path. Through launching my own business, I've shown hundreds of women around the globe how to let go of the own limitations & pains in order to create a life of more pleasure, more direction and more depth.
One of the major constraints I faced for the first 2 years of my journey to a joyful life was thinking that I needed someone else to give me permission to enjoy a pleasurable life, to say yes to wanting to explore life's experiences, that spending time with me was #loserville & thought that someone else had to always be present, that before going after my BOLDEST goals I needed validation, that spending hundreds of dollars on me was well a waste.... and being stressed constantly was “normal” because everyone was going through it. And you're probably experiencing the same just like some of the women I've worked with. But it was all possible because today booking a trip to Paris does not make my heart rate quadruple to cardiac arrest level, that putting on cafe jazz on a Sunday morning whilst reading my favourite fashion and lifestyle blogs is not crazyily weird, that sitting in front of a camera teaching hundreds of women about crafting daily bliss isn't so farfetched after all..
IF I CAN SAY YES TO ME SO CAN YOU!
THIS IS WHERE I WAS
I'm a Caribbean girl, francophile/lover of the french culture; and when I’m in the kitchen it's a fancy affair with myself & a glass of wine. When I created this space I had you in mind & I wanted to show my personality. I wanted to create a business that reflected my philosophy & what I love. I believe that a great pair of heels, a glass of wine, chocolate and the right mindset & attitude can solve almost anything!! "At least for me". BUT EQUALLY, discipline, dedication and patience in developing a success mindset got me to this place where I am now.
through the years
2012 - 2014
"Broken, depleted,depressed , angry and broke, discovered the law of attraction,
and started over with rebuilding my life.
2015 My Rebirth Began
"My rebirth began & spent 2 weeks in Paris, where I found myself, started to style blog once again and decided to be professional about it, built a team of amazing contributors, worked with brands, and decided that it was time for more. Now imagine, stepping off a plane in Paris and thinking "wowww, I can't believe that I am here. You guessed it. Moi.
If someone told me 5 years ago that I would be where I am right now I would laugh. Me? Introverted, people pleasing, never vocal, in debt Menellia? Never.... But it did somehow, someway happen. And if I were too fast forward to today I wouldn't; because I would miss out on the art of cultivating the a lifestyle & mindset I have now.
It hasn't been a smooth sailing, but the rough waters of lessons and training have helped me cultivate what's important to my well-being, my happiness, my Joie De Vivre. And I spill my metamorphosis in this post because when I got clarity on what I wanted, I became dedicated and remained persistent! When all the signs said noooooo this isn't for you, you're not cut out for this, you're not good enough, just be comfortable and grateful and all that, I pressed on.
2016 - Today "My Soul Growth & Soaring"
Had I listened to that ego mindset I wouldn't have developed this passionate brand, learn how to speak in public "this girl was a crier”, work with women across the world, nor become my highest performing self-doing the things I realllllly love!! And it's really important for me to share my vulnerability with you too. I don't have all the answers, but I know this truth - when you stop resisting, MAGIC REALLLLY happens! When you allow yourself to step into the highest version of you with confidence, your life TRANSFORMS!
"Shut down my blog, started my lifestyle coaching business,worked with women globally, got featured and contributed to some major platforms, held 2 live coaching lunches, went to paris again for 1 month, expanded my horizon, got mentored by the brightest minds in the industry. I won’t name drop. “But I learned fast” kicked ass at my career; and here we are! A NEW DIRECTION, teaching other new women how to do the same ..& if you’re here that means YOU! It may have taken me a very long 4+ years to get from indifferent, stressed out, doubting myself & afraid of creating a success & a lifestyle where my happiness , inner peace & positive energy is the center of everything, all so that you don't have to.
I have replaced waking up every morning with dread that I had to put on a fake smile for hours to the world when inside I'm crying for help with an actual real joyful smile. I have replaced sweeping my hair off the floor from stress levels through the roof with ease on an afternoon. I've replaced chronic migraines 10 times a month with the occasional twice a year "because there are those days". I've replaced constant fatigue and with healthy energy and emotional wealth.
And I know that you're here because everything I've mentioned above you've connected to because you're still here. Which is why I know that you're in the right place. Just like the corporate woman who spent 5 hours with me because she felt that she kept saying yes to everyone else with exhaustion; like the entrepreneur who felt that she would never be able to make her business goals a reality after 5 years of trying; like the woman who got tired of holding unto a draining relationship in the hopes that one day it will all fall into place. You're here because you're ready for that next chapter of your life. The healthy chapter where you lead a life a joy, balance, confidence and direction and you make no apologies about it! Which is why to get you started I've prepared a powerful soiree where I share 4 life transforming actions to take if you’re ready to reignite your life. Are you ready to get started?
