Melinda Strauss is on a mission to empower women to dream and teach them the steps to help make their dreams a reality.
With over 8 years of food blogging under her belt, a successful Jewish Food Media business conference in its 7th year of planning, and over 1,000 lives changed through her health coaching practice, Melinda is pursuing the dream that came along unexpectedly. What began as a food blogging hobby has turned into thousands of lives being touched every single day by her motivational messages and personal experiences with her own growth. Her mission is to help other women actualize their own goals and dreams.
For most of her life, Melinda took the easy road whenever possible. She lived in the present, without being conscious of her intentions for the future or where her potential could lead her. “What’s the point of dreaming of something I can’t achieve,” Melinda would say. “Dreams just aren’t realistic.” Only when Melinda was challenged to grow so she could help her clients get healthy in mind, body, and finances, did she learn what dreaming really meant. Dreaming isn’t just a wish your heart makes when you’re fast asleep, rather it’s a life you can imagine for yourself while you’re wide awake. And everyone has the power to dream, without exception! But with dreams come fear. Fear of success, fear of failure, fear of judgement, fear of the unknown, fear of reality. Melinda has experienced all of these fears and has figured out the tools to help herself and others, push through to overcome them on the road to pursuing their dreams.
We, as women, whether we are mothers, caretakers, or business owners, want to take care of everyone before we take care of ourselves. We fill everyone else’s cups but never fill our own. It’s time to fill your cup and let it overflow!
