There’s something just so amazing about calling a project your own – feeling a sense of pride, ownership, and passion about something. I tell everyone I work with that above any monetary value or salary bottom line, loving what you do (as cliché as it sounds) is the most important thing to have in life. Having something in your life that you’re so absolutely passionate about is irreplaceable. That is what Mel Inspired is to me. Beyond all, I hope that this project can do what I set out for it to do – inspire.
This little space I’ve created on the beautiful thing we call the internet is a handful of things that inspire me day to day – from amazing products, to motivating events, to wandering thoughts, to style.
Why Does Mel Inspired Exist?
When I sold my first “blog” when I was 17, I knew that the online space was a beautiful thing. It was a place to be creative, somewhere to nurture vision. Ever since then, I’ve been working in the online sphere; but never poured my heart and soul into anything ( like many young adults, I was, and probably am still, really confused about what I wanted to create out of life). Until now.
Having drove myself crazy over my early years trying to “make something of myself”, I was able to succeed in things here and there. But none of that was as satisfying as being able to inspire those around me when they asked for advice. I’ve been so humbled by the amount of people who have sought my counsel and opinion, and that have supported my vision and ideas. This project, if anything, is an ode to those incredible individuals.
So here we are – and here you are, reading this, and in doing so, you’re supporting me. I can’t thank you enough and I’m so thrilled to be embarking on this journey. I want to emphasize that YOU are a huge part of why this project exists and that YOU inspire me. That’s why I hope you’ll be a part of this with me – tell me what you like, what you don’t, and what your perspectives are.
From style, to beauty, to overall perspectives on life, I hope this project helps others feel great about themselves, have fun, and above all, be inspired to be and to do whatever they’ve always wanted to.
