The Beach Is My Backyard, But The City showed Me The Path To My Home!! This Is My Philosophy & My Story!
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!”
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. And you’re probably wondering why am I sharing with you this story instead of a “I made 6 figures after quitting my 9-5 job story”. Well that hasn’t happened.
You see 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. And the passion that I developed in that area magnetized them to my brand.
However, one of the major constraints I faced for the first 2 years of my journey to a living joyful life whilst building a brand 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.
