Do you feel stuck in your business? Maybe you’re hitting all your goals, but you aren’t feeling fulfilled? Well, today’s interview may help. On this episode of the IHML Show, we’re talking with the incredible Melyssa Griffin. Melyssa is a business and mindset coach with a community of over 200,000 business owners and self-development fans. But Melyssa wasn’t always an entrepreneur, and her journey into the business world had quite an interesting start.

After college, Melyssa worked as an English teacher in Japan, but she didn’t feel like it was her purpose. Needing something to look forward to after her long work days, Melyssa began a blog. Her following grew quickly and within six months, she started a graphic design studio, which soon became her full-time business. After running her design studio for a few years, Melyssa began to create and sell online programs. But even after her business hit the 7-figure mark, Melyssa still wasn’t feeling happy or fulfilled. Why? She had spent years focusing on external goals, instead of important inner goals. This wake-up call led her to prioritize herself, her fulfillment and her impact over revenue goals, followers and sales. After today’s interview, you’ll be inspired to move in the direction of what feels good to you, because Melyssa teaches us that you can reach your business goals while still feeling happy and fulfilled.

During this episode we’re going to cover…

  • Why moving in the direction of what feels good can help you move closer to your purpose
  • The importance of prioritizing your happiness, fulfillment and impact, rather than your followers and income goals
  • How journaling and coaching changed the course of her life and business
  • Why trusting our inner guidance and intuition is so important for our business
  • Melyssa’s step-by-step guidance for following your purpose
  • Why she stopped following people on social media (and how that has helped her business!)

One of my favorite quotes from this episode is this:

“If you do the thing that you are really passionate about and you back it up with some business skills and all that kind of good stuff, then it’s going to work out. Like it’s just going to work out so much better than if you did the thing that you have to force yourself to do. because the more that we’re in alignment with what we’re really passionate about, what we really want to bring to this world, what we feel deep down is our core mission, then it just works out so much more beautifully. We’re not pushing against the universe, it’s really working in our favor instead.”  – Melyssa Griffin
