A Magical Journey

My goodness it feels like I got on a Bullet Train last week and it’s just started to slow down as it heads towards the station.

I would love to tell you it’s been fun – but that would be lying.  Bullet train

However it has been the most extraordinary experience.

Even at that moment when I wanted it all to stop, I still knew I was safe and that this too would pass (and my wonderful husband reflected that back to me).

I’m not even going to try to share my experiences as there is waaaay too much for one email.

And truthfully, what I am experiencing now is the result of a journey of transformation I embarked upon 10 years ago. There’s a gazillion puzzle pieces that are all falling into place right now, but they’d only make sense if I shared the whole story.

And that’d take a looooooooooooong time 🙂

But what I do want to share is the consistent message that I’m getting loud and clear which is to re-connect to who I truly am.

It’s really beautiful to watch it unfold.

And at times it’s scary.

Whilst I have a huge amount of trust and know at a deep level that I am on the right path and this is what I’m meant to be doing – it’s a massive step into the unknown.

I am truly stepping into unchartered and uncharted territory.

From a business point of view it may make no sense.

Many people will think I’m crazy.

But when I look back at my life – including all my successes in business – I never did anything because it made sense.

I did it because there was this part of me that lit up and sparkled and went “ooh that sounds fun”, or “ooh not done that before”, or “wouldn’t it be amazing if …”

And although the thoughts were different each time, the feeling was always the same.

A feeling of excitement, curiosity, adventure, magic and trust.

And no fear – the fear only came later as I started implementing:

What if I’m wrong?

What will people think?

What if it doesn’t work?

Oh s**t what have I done?

As I moved through my fears I discovered that my courage inspired people.

People loved the big bold actions I took because it motivated them to step forward.

They felt the energy behind the words I shared.

They thought “if Melina can do it, I can too”.

I discovered it’s not what I do, it’s the magic and the sparkle that infuses what I do that inspires and empowers others.

Whenever I did anything “sensible” it was a flop.

Doesn’t mean doing sensible stuff is bad.

Or that you have to do wild and wacky things to get results.

But for me I don’t shine unless it includes a little wild and wacky-ness.

Something different, something bold. It’s part of who I am.

It’s when I show up as the best version of me.

It’s when I write the best emails.

It’s when I create magical experiences for people.

So if I don’t get that sparkly “ooh” feeling about something – it’s not right for me.

Doesn’t mean it’s not right – it’s just not right for me.

Can you build a sustainable business that goes against 80% of everything that’s currently taught about marketing and sales?

Who knows! But I’m excited to find out. It definitely gives me that sparkly “ooh” feeling.

And I know that if it doesn’t work out something else will show up along the way.

Now before you go away and think I’m a crazed wacko and I’m going to fail miserably, I have actually spent 11 years, following rules doing “what works” in business.

I’ve mastered lead generation and selling high ticket programmes; I’ve had 6 figure years, and 5 figure months and launches; I’ve had a successful membership programme; I’ve sold hundreds of digital products; I’ve worked with the best mentors (who’ve hired me to sell their coaching programmes); I’ve spoken on many stages; some small, some large; I’ve done webinars; I’ve put systems in place; I’ve hired support; I’ve let go of my money story.

I’ve learnt what works for me and what doesn’t.

I’ve done all the “groundwork” so I can now “break” the rules with confidence and congruence, stepping into the unknown with faith, fully supported on a practical level with a deep knowing that whatever happens all is well.

It’s now time to step it up a gear.

And I’m excited about the future and how I can fully support you on your magical journey.

So over the coming weeks I will be sharing more about what that looks like and what to do if you want to be a part of it. And if you don’t but you still want marketing and business building advice I’m going to be recommending some awesome business building and marketing experts.

And I’ve got some great “letting go” offers of my own.

So stay tuned.

And thank you.

Thank you for being you and for joining me so far as our magical paths intertwine.

Much love,
