Top-performers seem like they have it all. They’re…

  • Highly motivated & ambitious
  • Smart & educated
  • Striving to be the best in all areas of their life

But the unspoken secret is that on the inside many of them feel like they’re:

  • Constantly taking on too much
  • Stuck in a cycle of overwhelm, stress, and overthinking
  • Fighting a losing battle against self-doubt

If despite all of your accomplishments, you’re still not at peace with yourself, you’re not alone. And you’re in the right place.

There’s flipside to success that can deeply affect smart, sensitive high achievers. The emotional depth and ambition that give you your edge can also lead to self-doubt and keep you from fully enjoying your career.

Your success doesn’t have to be a source of suffering.

The good news is that thousands of people just like you have discovered how to get out their own way, improve their inner game, and level up their careers. I’m Melody, and I’m here to help you cut through stress, develop confidence, and find inner peace. The result? Lasting balance and fulfillment.

I would not be where I am in my professional and personal development if it weren’t for Melody. We started working together at a time when I needed to unwind from the stress and negative self-image caused by years of being unhappy at my job. I didn’t see a future for myself I’d be happy with. That has changed. Now I am energized and have a much more clear professional direction — one that’s bigger than I ever felt capable of. All this felt like it was organically happening as Melody helped me move forward while staying true to my core values. I relearned to trust myself in the process. You have got to work with her! You will see results within the first one or two sessions, if you are willing to.

  1. How to Deal With Setbacks

    manage setbacks and be successful

    We all know life has its challenges and setbacks. The 21st century brings us smaller workforces, more responsibility, and expectations from others 24/7. Doing the work of two or more people, the phone that never stops ringing and the boss who gives you something she needs yesterday can frustrate anyone. This pressure can knock you off focus and test your will, but you don’t have to let it discourage you.

    Achieving success requires risks – lots of them. Studies have shown that those who rise to the top have emotional courage, or a willingness to persist in the face of regularly hearing “no”. Pushing through the rejection, criticism, and disappointment can toughen us.

    Teddy Roosevelt once said about his days in the wild: “There were all kinds of things I was afraid of at first… but by acting as if I was not afraid I gradually ceased to be afraid”. Courageous people see challenges as opportunities to grow.

    Reconnecting with the determination that’s helped you succeed takes re-examining your strengths and a little creativity. When challenging scenarios have you hanging your head, shore up your confidence with these skills so you can get back up, dust yourself off and look the challenge in the eye to overcome.

    What To Do When: You Have Too Many Simultaneous Priorities

    The more successful we are, the more this becomes an issue. Demands come from multiple directions, and somehow they all are the “most important” one right now.

    5 Steps to Stay Sane When Launching a Side Hustle

    Slash careerists, moonlighting, freelancing. TThere are many terms for working extra jobs, but no matter what you call it, more than 44 million people have side hustles.

    Millennials aren’t the only ones creating new sources of income while holding down a day job. Baby boomers are cashing in on the trend as well. Soon-to-be-retirees out-earn Millennials when it comes to side hustle income, taking home an average of $1,000 a month.

    The opportunity and potential for side hustles is exciting. Many successful entrepreneurs have turned a passion project into a full-time business.

    But making the time for a side hustle when you’re already busy can be a challenge. Starting a new venture also carries a lot of stress. There’s no shortage of emotional ups-and-downs when you’re embarking on any creative endeavor, side hustles included. The late nights and hard work can take a toll.

    How do you stay sane while building a side hustle?

    Here are a few tips to help:

    1. Rely on systems and a schedule

    Look for ways to limit decision fatigue by automating parts of your life. Create a capsule wardrobe. Outsource laundry, dry cleaning, or meal planning. That will create more margin and white space so you can focus on meaningful work.

    What gets scheduled gets done. Build time for your side hustle into your schedule, even if that means waking up a few hours earlier for a month or zeroing your inbox after the kids go to bed.
