Hi, I am Melly Stewart
For me, storytelling is a curiosity filled search to find the story within the heart of the people I meet. A perpetual truth seeker, I am intrigued by others stories and driven by a desire to unearth a deeper richness to the person before me.
My expertise in videography and storytelling has led me to merge this search with assisting individuals and entrepreneurs to find, express and share their own stories so they can courageously connect with themselves and others.
At the core of everything I do, is a love for personal growth and specifically using storytelling, video and photography as personal growth tools. So whether I am facilitating a client’s Heart Reconnection Journey or collecting their story of courage for the #courage1000project, you can be guaranteed that there is a story at the heart of everything I do.
It is because of this I am known as… MellyS The Story Collector.
The 10 Universal Truths About Courage
Melly Stewart is an author, keynote speaker, trainer, facilitator, videographer, award winning photographer, entrepreneur and host & founder of the #courage1000project WebTV Show. Her mission is to help empathetic women reclaim their confidence, joy and purpose, both in business and in life, from a world that overwhelms their minds, bodies and souls.
Influenced by the research of Brene Brown and the spiritual knowledge of Louise Hay, Melly Stewart has used her 10 years experience in Photography/Videography, 15 years in the entrepreneurial space, 18 years experience in various forms of Customer Service and her highly intuitive and curious nature to develop a unique perspective when it comes to understanding people and their heart stories. It is because of this she is known as The Story Collector.
Through a childhood of struggling to understand why she constantly felt others emotions, to a profound experience with death, the life changing joy that comes with birth, to coping with the societal pressures of motherhood. Melly’s story culminates in what she refers to as her ‘Year of Red’; the year life and death met forcing her to finally acknowledge a lifelong struggle with her identity and finding the courage to finally accept herself.
Upon sharing her story with others, she was frequently referred to as inspirational and courageous and had many women reaching out to her, asking what she had done to reclaim her life. It was through this reflection that she discovered the 3 key pillars of her journey that could be used to help other deep feeling women: Courage, Self-Awareness & Radical Self Love.
Melly’s many services including personal development workshops and programs have been created to provide support, clarity and guidance to these women and are based on her 3 pillars. She shares this information freely in her keynote presentations, The 7 Secret Steps of Courage To Help You Reclaim Your Life, in which she draws on her own life experiences and those whom she has interviewed through her WebTV show, #courage100project.
