Melissa Meredith

My Current Job/Company:
I’m transitioning out of my former corporate executive life and into something quite different and yet unknown. It’s exhilarating and liberating!

My Birthdate:
11/7/69

My Work:
After decades of running at breakneck speed to do/have it all, my tank was empty. Once I made the decision to leave the corporate world, my work became that of figuring out how to reconnect with myself and my loved ones. I learned a lot along the way and now want to share my journey with others. Finding your voice and standing in your truth are vital to understanding why you matter to the world.

My Passion:
Making authentic connections with people. Lifting up the power each one of us has to make a difference. Living a wholehearted life and teaching my daughter to do the same.

My Family:
Erin, my daughter (7)

My Hero:
Maya Angelou’s quiet strength is awe-inspiring.

My Escape:
I get lost in the beauty of this world (art, music, poetry, nature, human connection, etc.).

My Pet Peeve:
Posers (I used to be one!)

My Indulgence:
I couldn’t possibly eat enough chocolate.

My Roots:
Soulful. Adventurous. Curious.

My Future:
Helping people discover their greatness.

My Love:
Seeing my daughter blossom makes my heart smile.

My Movie:
The English Patient

My Quote on Life:
“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.” -Helen Keller

My Accessory:
Matching necklace and earrings.

My Advice to Young Women:
Believe in yourself and pay close attention to the fire in your belly.

How I Balance it All:
Forget about urgent. Do what’s important and the urgent will take care of itself.

    I thought of you when I read Kim’s article about getting the right things done.
    Click on it on my wall, but if you don’t find it, let me know, and I will send it to you!
    Keep up the great work!
    Love, Mom
