Some of her other hobbies and interests are:

“I love to cook, cross country ski, and run. Right now I’m really passionate about sharing my list building strategies, and I’m also on a mission to make everyone love Twitter!

Everyone is a Graphic Designer Online Now @relaythat

Posted on February 4th, 2016 by & filed under Discoveries, Everything Miz Meliz, Product Reviews

It’s as easy as 1,2,3!

I will show you what I use to create awesome graphics. The platforms, like everything else, are changing every day. I did a quick comparison.

Here are my faves:

FotoJet.com

  • easiest to use
  • hot new templates
  • amazing stuff for free
  • great for newbies and anyone who likes to be creative on their blog or in their correspondence
  • geared towards creative collages
  • basic social media templates and sharing

I did this one on FotoJet:

Stars on Tonight

Canva.com

  • free
  • super easy
  • lots of social media templates and layouts to use
  • social sharing
  • ease of payment for one offs or special projects
  • easy to download to different formats
  • Sometimes I wish for more
  • Business level upgrade available

I made this (and most of my graphics) with Canva:

Emotional Wellness Coach

 

RelayThat.com

  • Not as easy, yet definitely “learnable” and great video training on easy to find front page
  • (I get the feeling their are more men working on the design team, and possibly a little old school in their formatting of the user interface, it’s not all click and drag.) IMHO
  • Extensive, thorough, and exciting!
  • Templates are above an beyond what you want. As if they know what you will want.
  • Affordable PRO level
  • monthly or annual payments (Special Offer, see below and save!)
  • Built in SEO, SCHEDULING, and tagging! (yes, very thoughtful!)
  • Great for bloggers, blabbers, and content creators – because you design your basic graphic and it autofills in varying formats to put in different social media platforms. See image below – just a snippet of possibilities and all I did was fill in one template.

Tinsel Town Tonight – How The Stars Align in 2016

Posted on February 2nd, 2016 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz, Intentional, Life Coaching, Tinsel Town Live 2016

I guess I have a lot of audacious goals and the stars are aligned for me because everything is happening so fast. I would love to talk about this on my show, Tinsel Town Tonight. Te topic will be, “What Makes the Stars Align For You?” Join me right here for the LIVE broadcast at 7 PM tonight! SCROLL DOWN FOR ALL THE DEETS!

My January Recap

I was invited to speak at #ConnectHer16 which has been a hope of mine for some time. I started my coaching practice and sought help in how to really bring it home – and I feel really good about meeting the right people at the right time. I want to book more guests on my talk show and I am loving making the connections. (Gretchen Rubin “liked” my Tweet today about being featured on my show!) I started my online sales of my artwork, huge step for me!

 

 

 

 

 

 

My (official) words for 2016 are Create, Connect, and Sparkle!

 

 What are your words? Have you set an intention for the year? Do you use One Word, or other ways to stay focused?

Do you need some accountability to help you reach your goals? If you want, you can email them to me and I will follow up with you. Send your word/list to me at MizMeliz@Yahoo.com with Accountability in the subject line. You will get a message from me in the summer and just before the holidays to see how you are doing.   By way of holding myself accountible, I am sharing my goals for this year here on my blog. I will give you all the details for the first thing I am developing, my coaching practice. In future posts, I will tell you all about the book I am writing and the story of why I am so obsessed/enamored with mandalas. Here it goes…putting it all out there!

 

My Projects for 2016

I have three main areas of focus that I plan to complete this year.

        • I will put into action a business strategy to open and maintain a viable coaching practice. In other words, I am open for business! And I am working hard to put systems in place to make it wonderfully successful.

 

 

 

        • I will self-publish my 2nd book, More Than a Feeling, available on Amazon in October 2016. Let me know if you want to be on the pre-order mailing list.

 

 

 

        • I will make products available for purchase online with my artwork. The project for this year is 100 Mandalas. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you have seen at least a dozen mandalas I have drawn and/or colored. So, if you like the vibrant colorful designs as much as I do – you can snuggle up with your mandala throw pillow, wrap up in a mandala scarf, take out your mandala notebook, and pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea in your mandala mug – and make it a Miz Meliz Mandala Moment! (Too much? Nah!, use this code and get 20% off everything. CELEBR8 )

 

       

Coaching Practice

Part of my preparation for my strategic plan is to thoroughly define what I aim to do as a coach. Just saying I am a Life Coach is not enough. What sets me apart? What makes me unique and what will help people trust me to help them?
I dug deep. I took time to reach into the core of what I do best, how I do it, and why I am called to do it. I came up with some powerful information. It’s stuff that makes my heart feel funny. The stuff you want to call your mom about.

Here are some titles I am considering for myself:

Emotional Well-being Transformation Specialist 

Roller Coaster of Life Coach

Emotional Train Wreck First Responder

Emotional Transformation Guide

What ever I end up calling myself, I vow to be your guide to living a happy, carefree, self-fulfilled, and hopeful life. 

I can help you:

  • Find your self 
  • Find your voice 
  • Find your way

Are you feeling:

  • Lost
  • Forgotten
  • In a fog
  • Confused
  • Stagnant
  • Unmotivated 
  • Stretched
  • Complacent

Are you:

  • a Caretaker
  • a Parent
  • a Patient
  • a Student
  • Going through loss, or a major life change
  • in need of a confidant, friend, or cheerleader

If you are:

  • Tired
  • Bored
  • Depleted
  • Depressed
  • Anxious 
  • Stressed 
  • Over worked
  • Grieving

And if any of these statements fit you:

  • I have been surviving this way for so long that I don’t even recognize myself.
  • The person I once was, the person I am on the inside, is dying to get out and live again.
  • I am just going through the motions, getting through the day, the week, the month… I am not even sure what it is that I want anymore.
  • I have been helping, serving, raising, assisting other people for so long, sacrificing my own plans and dreams, that I think I have forgotten who I am, I don’t even remember what I aspired to be.
  • I feel like my goals don’t matter.
  • It is too late to live my dream life.
  • I spend more time thinking about my secret happy place to get away from the daily grind than imagining any type of future for myself. At least I know I can’t fail at it.

I know how you feel!

I have personal experience with all of this. I always thought my dream was to get married, have kids, please my parents, have a job, save money, and that would be what would make me happy. That is as far as I could see for myself when I was in that time of my life. Well, I got there. It was great. I felt happy. I did what I set out to do. Then I realized that I didn’t aim high enough. I had everything I wanted and I wanted more. Just when I started planning a future for myself, thinking about soaring with the wind, flying free and being my best self, the shit hit the fan. Everything fell apart. My life was shattered. And then it hit again.  And again. And again. And again. I began to believe that my life was shit. It didn’t matter that I still had a home, a husband, a family, a job. I risked it all and lashed out, acted out, freaked out, and I began having panic attacks, anxiety, depression and chronic pain. 

I dealt with destruction, drama, disease, and death. I had marriage issues, health issues, mental issues, fitness issues, to the point of having issue issues! I got the help I needed. (There is a lot packed in that little statement. A ton. It wasn’t easy and it took time. I couldn’t do it alone. I got the help I needed.) 

Through all of this, on the outside I seemed fine. Nobody knew the misery I was putting myself through on the inside. I had to make a change.

I looked within myself and I found her. My inner sweetheart. My inner child. And she still had dreams. She still had ideas and excitement and joy. She waited for me. She will always be there. She has new ideas all the time. All I have to do is listen. We grow together. We always keep learning, growing, experiencing life and all that it is meant to be. 

If you have been distracted, dismayed, or depressed to the point of despair, I can help you find your path. 

You can go from:

  • Heartbroken to heartwarming
  • Self-sabotaging to self-confident 
  • Sacrificing to successful 
  • Martyrdom to Masterful
  • Misguided  to Motivated
  • Victimized to Vindicated
  • Torn to terrific
  • Lonely to lovely
  • Depressed to dazzling 
  • Fallen to fabulous 
  • Broken to beautiful 
  • Painful to playful
  • Jealous to joyful
  • Hollow to happy
  • Tired to inspired
  • Anxious to Amazing 
  • Feeling awful to being amazing
  • Go from “merely existing to “here to be awesome!”

Yes, you can still be who you are; a helper, an assistant, a parent, a caretaker. You can serve others without sacrificing yourself, without losing your own passions, desires and needs.

I will show you how to live with intention, insight, and inspiration.

I will help you find your voice and sing out joyfully. You will find yourself and you will sparkle and shine when you live the life that you are meant to live. You will achieve your dreams and turn your goals into plans. That fog will lift and you will feel yourself glowing with energy. 

You will be:

  • Gracious 
  • Joyful 
  • Happy
  • Hopeful
  • Carefree
  • Stress free 
  • Satisfied 
  • Fulfilled
  • Alive 

You will learn to:

  • Listen to your inner sweetheart not your inner daemons (screaming banshee or bride of Frankenstein.)
  • Mind map instead of brainstorm
  • Plan instead of dream
  • Think positive 
  • Be proactive 
  • Know what you want and what you stand for and do what you believe in

If I am your coach, we will take an adventure together:

  • Experience for yourself how far trusting yourself can take you. 
  • Find your thing. Your passion. Your core value. Your inner strength. Your true desires. 
  • Look deep within. Look far ahead. Envision all the possibilities. Map it out. Get going. Love the life you want. 
I can’t tell you how I will do it or when it will happen for you. That is up to you. It is different for everyone and I know countless ways to activate the things that are most important that will work for you. Just show up, that is the first step. Every coaching experience is different, but I am very close to everyone I meet and I will always be here for you. I have only served a few clients in the past year or so, and I was not sure that I have what it takes to be an effective and sought after coach. I needed some feedback. I asked people I have coached for testimonials and suggestions to improve my coaching practice.
The response was so affirming!
I listed them below…I am so humbled.
I am really motivated to get my coaching practice re-activated. I already have courses (referred to as “workouts” below!) and mini-retreats scheduled.
My calendar is pre-loaded on Trainer.ly for one on one coaching sessions:

Testimonials

  • “I love the way you speak. You’re so calm and clear in everything that you say. You listened to every word I had to say and you were very helpful with my situation. I like how you tied in stories of your own to give me examples and tips that would motivate and inspire me.”
  • “I really appreciated how easy it was for us to schedule a time to talk – you are so great about being flexible with your time. And being able to have sessions over the phone was such a blessing for a busy mother of two!”
  • “You have a very good memory and were able to connect dots from our different conversations. I also truly felt you were sincere – when you told me my work was meaningful and valuable, I believed you and it made me stop devaluing what I did and see my work in a new light.”
  • “It’s funny because with you I was able to verbalize what I really wanted but never said out loud because it was such a hopeless pipe dream – I wanted the job that I had 12 years ago back. It seemed impossible, but once I said it and really let myself want it, I ended up getting it back!! Coincidence? I think not!”
  • “You are very in tune with such a vast variety of people, from all walks of life. You truly care about others, and I always feel good after visiting your group:)”
