The Winds of Change
Hello so here’s the un-official bit - I am Melanie and I became a female entrepreneur quite by accident in 2009. I unintentionally created my beloved petite business Scarletta Media by blogging and working on social media strategies and teaching others about the social revolution.
My work rapidly evolved and I offered Social Media Styling services to small businesses all over the world. What I loved about my work was working with other female entrepreneurs who wanted to create and market their own social identities, creatively tell their stories through blogs and books and establish their authentic personal brands.
But as I grew and transformed I knew there had to be more purpose, depth and meaning to my life, work and business. And so in 2018 I started all over again and re-launched my new business in my own name with the sole purpose of offering more intuitive and instinctive mentoring services for women in business.
As the seasons change so do we. May we be aware we are shifting just like the wind.
As for my soulful clients, it seemed they were also seeking to transform themselves too with more depth and meaning in their own lives and businesses. Being together we dig deeper and focus on their entire lives, not just their business in isolation. Because why create a life and business that doesn't really light you up?
In my world there are no should's or must-do's, we all know what we need to do, however sometimes we'd like someone else we trust to join us and walk alongside as we grow, evolve and bloom with encouragement, morale, support and branches of wisdom.
With my guidance and mentoring you can discover what is truly in your heart and soul.
And go on to show up, speak out and feel empowered to do your best work, whilst serving the people who need to hear from you. With everything in alignment with your own intentions, priorities, goals and visions so that you are the change.

My Graceful spiritual awakening
My own most recent life affirming transformation in my life began in earnest as I approached my 40th birthday. As well as being excited of reaching the ripe age of 40 I felt disillusioned with the world around me. My beliefs altered. What I valued shifted. My work felt stifled and I needed to change direction. At the same time on the home front we were trying to move. This saga dragged on with setback after setback for two very stressful years. And then in the midst of all of this a lovely surprise we were expecting our baby.
Suddenly elation turned to heartbreak and we sadly lost our longed for baby Grace Rose during my pregnancy.
My life hit rock bottom.
Within the depths of grief and despair my old life began to fall away rapidly. I asked myself “What do I do now, how on earth can I ever come back from this?”
Losing Grace became an unexpected but much needed catalyst for transformational change both personally and professionally.
I needed the answers to big life questions, which were initially slow to come. I had to learn to be patient, with myself and the world around me. I began to tune in and listen to and trust my own inner guidance and wisdom, which helped me grieve and heal. I started to embrace more self care, compassion and kindness, something that was alien to me before. Now I know there is such a thing as human resilience, we have an in-built inner strength that somehow in our darkest moments picks us up and sees us gently forward. Eventually I chose the light. For me and for Grace.
As I understood my inner guidance I knew my old way of being and working had changed. My life purpose and soul led work took on far deeper meaning. I let go of what no longer mattered to me and embraced a new way of being. Now I live my life and run my business very differently than before.
Gradually my work and calling became entwined. I feel deeply passionate and compelled to help women and it is no longer only about supporting them and being a confidante in a work capacity or personally through loss; my purpose and role is about encouraging women to transform in their entirety.
Many of us experience triggers, big life changing moments or trauma that enforce us to reassess, wake up and change who we are and what we're all about for the better.
Despite my own vulnerability often the overwhelming desire to do whatever I can eventually kicks in. My mission for my life and soul-led work became more transparent so the only option was to say ‘yes’ to using my voice to speak out about what I feel must change. Now I say ‘yes’ to sharing my input and feedback on new campaigns to help raise awareness of baby loss. I say ‘yes’ to fully showing up and offering support to others who’ve lost their babies. I’ll continue to do all of this and more even though sometimes I’d prefer to hide away and stay quiet.
The biggest transformation since losing Grace is that I am willing to step up and be the change I wish to see in the world. Which means these days I often find myself totally out of my comfort zone agreeing to do things that would be easier for me to say no to, such as commenting on blogs, contributing to books, being interviewed for podcasts and participating in a documentary. But when I find my courage and say ‘yes’ maybe, just maybe my input or action will help someone else in their time of need?
This period of my life could be labeled as “Hitting Rock Bottom” a “A Mid Life Crisis” or even a “Monumental Shift”. Instead I’ll go for my"Transformational Chapter" along with my “Graceful Spiritual Awakening.”
