Motivational Speaking

Melissa’s reputation as a speaker is built on her ability to connect with audiences honestly and authentically, while teaching courage and confidence. The key topics she speaks on are positive self-image, bravery, health, fitness, and mental toughness with the message that you should Never trade your authenticity for anyone else's approval.  

  Although we aren't always aware, research says that 60-70% of our thoughts are negative. How would our world change if 60-70% of our thoughts were positive instead? Paakh believes that when our internal dialogue questions our confidence, we are less likely to be authentic, less likely to be vulnerable, and less capable of connection.

 Authenticity is hard to practice because it means you're exposing the sides you don't often feel comfortable sharing. Paakh believes that if we want to feel more connected and ultimately more fulfilled, we need to start getting comfortable feeling uncomfortable. We need to learn to listen to our intuition, even if that means we are being vulnerable.
