Lean In 08: Redreaming: Mel Loh on Refuelling Your Life’s Motivation

By Kate Reardon

Are you feeling uninspired or unmotivated? Sometimes your internal fire, the one that drives you, can fizzle out into just smouldering embers. During these times, we can shift our direction and take a new path that reignites the soul.  Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing. If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.  In this episode of Lean In, I get down to business with one of the most mind and heart centred entrepreneurs I know, Mel Loh. Mel is an inspirational, self-described east-west mix, third culture kid that doesn’t quite fit the mould when it comes to her professional and personal life.   Being from a well-travelled, multicultural background has given Mel an open perspective of life, allowing her to unintentionally make unconventional choices, and this is why I love her.  She’s a People-Planet-Profit driven business & leadership coach that transforms ideas into success, helping her clients solve real-world problems, all under the belief that modern entrepreneurs and businesses can be one of the fastest vehicles for positive change in the world. Mel and I discuss the highs and lows we’ve both experienced on our entrepreneurial journeys. She reveals how we can all confront our deepest fears and cultivate our own bravery, while also discussing the concept of ‘Redreaming’ and the importance of living a life of freedom. Also featured in this episode:  How a multicultural Mel found her tribe The benefits of growing up as a travelling child A 17-year-old Mel’s first published article The changing landscape for entrepreneurs Seeing the cobwebs of your psyche – Starting a business The body’s indicators of ‘no’ Living your authentic self  The redreaming concept and aligning with what’s going on The illusion of being busy Our love affair with technology How the virtual world is exploding, and ways we can stay connected Mel’s views on giving back and how to form cross-cultural relationships The reality of  having freedom Cultivating bravery and confronting our fears Learning and earning – working within your passion Links: http://www.melissa-loh.com/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/melissaloh/
