Hello! I am MelAnn. Writer. Pathfinder. Coach. Subscription Box Business Owner. Fiercely devoted to my favorite liquid collagen and vitamin regimens. Sometimes, I teach.
I have a story for you…
I stumbled across information about a doctor out of Houston who charged $695 a year. No insurance. Cash. And no per visit price. If you wanted his services, you paid the $695. This doctor was an experienced doctor. So- medical school plus tons and tons of specialized study and continuing education over the course of 20+ years after medical school. $695 for a year for 24/7 access to him via text/email. His only deal was he replied during office hours; though he often would reply outside of those hours if he had opportunity.
After reading that and hearing messaging from coaches justifying their high prices for their coaching etc… one coach who I knew personally who outright lied about her experience and twisted other parts of it and conveniently omits that she enjoys her lifestyle because of her husband’s job and not from her whole 6 months of being a brand new coach with zero experience other than a nice photo shoot from a previous gig. I just didn’t want to be in this space anymore. Facebook seriously needs a vomit emoji. Am I right?
But it’s no wonder I burned out. The messaging in the coaching industry, hustle energy, outrageous price points, etc. It just wasn’t me. I was a really good coach! But I thought because none of what was going on in the coaching industry didn’t align with me, that I wasn’t really a coach or supposed to be one. But I was wrong!
“Get back to writing. Serve people your way on your terms. And just maybe… consider leaving the social media space except for a few strict boundaries for when you do need to be on social media.”
So, here’s what’s great about this for you. In the Life Souvenirs space I plan to share my stories - my own life souvenirs. I will also share tools, etc that I’ve discovered that help make my life better. For all of my free subscribers, I will occasionally have free printables, etc. For paid subscribers, an occasional masterclass or essay as thanks for your added support.
I have returned to coaching. I will talk about that in my posts. What I can tell you is that my on demand coaching services will not cost you more than $695 a year.
I have a heart to work in the healing space where Identity is concerned. My passion is for women in midlife, adoptees, anyone suffering from grief, loss or disappointment; and a deep driving passion to help those who are in post traumatic faith crisis.
My dream vision for this is to facilitate in-person retreats for women walking through post-traumatic faith crisis.
This can be those on the receiving end of bullying or abuse in the name of religion. Those going through faith deconstruction - a popular term trending right now. Or anyone that is learning that faith and God are not what they were taught or grew up with and struggling to untangle what is real faith, really of God, real Kingdom issues and what is religious rhetoric that it outdated and never had a place in God’s Kingdom. There are also those who have just walked away completely and struggling because they are feeling a pull back; but they are stuck in the rubber band of resistance. Is it God pulling you back… or guilt? Does God really love me? or I’m too shameful, unworthy, too far gone, etc?
My promise to you. I will always point to God. I will NEVER point to religion. I will NEVER tell you what to believe. And I will love & respect you even if you choose NOT to believe.
It’s no accident I have landed in this space. As we get to know each other and I share more of my stories, you will understand why.
Rapture: experience intense joy or delight so magical that it transforms & transports you to sacred spaces that expand your Divine story.
Rapture is the word God gave me along with this definition. Rapture is this journey’s goal. We can recognize and create sacred spaces in our journey. But it is God who up-levels our experience as we reside in or travel through those spaces. As your coach, this is what I hope to point you to.
