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. 

Melyssa also hosts the top-rated “Pursuit With Purpose” podcast, which covers topics like mindset, relationships, and business in order to help her community reach their full potential in all areas of their lives. Past guests include Deepak Chopra, Marie Forleo, and Mark Manson.
