3 Keys to Finding the Confidence to Take the Leap into Your Creative Work

(Because your heart knows you’re meant for more)

Are you spending your time doing work that is financially supportive, but doesn’t sing to your soul? When you have time to dream, do you find you can’t stop thinking about what you could be doing instead of your current job? Is there so much fear when you think of doing something different? (What will my family say? Would I be successful? Am I good enough? Maybe I should try to just be satisfied with what I am doing now.) And deep down inside, do you know this big dream of yours needs space to be explored?

If all this sounds exactly like you, then you’re in the right place. How do I know? Because this used to be me 10 years ago.

We think the problem is that we don’t know what steps to take. But the steps become clear once we decide to take the leap.

What we need is clarity about our desires + the confidence to go for it.


Hi, I’m Melissa.

I’m a Confidence and Life Coach, and Women’s Empowerment Photographer. 10 years ago I was slaving away at a job in the pharmaceutical industry. On the surface I had a dream job- great pay, bonuses, company car, expense account, travel. But inside I was stressed out, depressed and filled with anxiety, and feeling unfulfilled and unappreciated. I hated my job and was so unhappy that I couldn’t get out of bed.

I knew I was meant to do more, and have a life that made me feel happy and excited. But I didn’t know what that looked like, or how to get there. I felt stuck and hopeless.

Then I found personal development, and a book called You Can Heal Your Life, and it changed everything for me. It gave me the strength and confidence to start to dream about what my life could look like, and a plan to leave my soul sucking job behind.

The road to having a successful creative business was long and hard, and it took lots of mistakes and trying new things before I was able to support myself. It wasn’t until I found coaching that my business grew, I began to feel more confident in myself, and I was able to dream bigger and stop feeling guilty for wanting more.

It took me years to figure out what I wanted, and several years more to get there. But it doesn’t have to be that way for you!

In this free workshop we will:

  • Learn how to see your path ahead more clearly, by connecting the dots throughout your life. (This led to my big Aha moment!)

  • Tap into confidence NOW, even if you don’t yet have the skills, and aren’t sure what to do. (And I’m not talking about fake-it-til-you-make-it)

  • Take the first big step towards claiming what you desire.

  • Learn the #1 thing that helped me take the leap from being a miserable Pharmaceutical Sales Rep to a career I’ve absolutely loved.
