Hi, I’m Mellany

Hi, my name is Mellany Paynter, welcome to Mellany Motivates!

I coach GenX women on strategies and resources needed to re-engineer life after traumatic experiences.

As a Life Engineer, I am passionate about seeing others WIN! In their life, relationships, and careers in general. I especially enjoy working with women who can acknowledge that they are ready for a change from the brokenness a life challenge has brought on them. I empower you with mental, physical and spiritual strategies and resources to become whole again. Think of me as your mentor, friend and project manager all wrapped up into one.

Why Life Engineering?

I didn’t just pick some fancy sounding career. In 2010, I experienced the biggest and most impactful loss in life anyone could imagine. My Mom passed away unexpectedly. I can’t tell you how extremely devastating this was. As an only child, I felt like I lost the best part of me. I thought I was losing my mind at times, but it forced me to do some soul searching and put some things in perspective to get past my grief. The outcome and decisions I made eventually led me to a remarkable and rewarding existence out of a 9-5 and into my purpose.

I understand how taking the time to live with your feelings surrounding a traumatic life event and tapping into your inner self, can help you come to terms with your situation and reduce stress. This is how you move forward!

I am also an Author and Speaker, specifically focusing on personal growth and development. I share my healing journey in my book, Dancing At the Crossroad. Get a sneak peek into the book here. Or, you can purchase a copy of the book here.

When we work together, I use the core principles of Body-Mind training to identify strategic ways to my help clients re-engineer their lives. 

If you’re tired of the emotional rollercoaster and unpredictability of your situation, schedule a call with me. I’d love to hear more about you and explore the possibility of us working together.
