My name is Melanie Young and I am a full-time blogger and I’m on my way to be becoming a lifestyle and success coach.
I come from an IT background but I’ve also had the pleasure of working in various industries and have learned a lot from all of them. The most important lesson that I learned was that I wanted and needed to work for myself. One extremely horrible boss made that lesson abundantly clear.
I’m not an expert at anything.. YET! But what I do have is 40 years of life experience to include being a parent, great research skills, the hunger to learn and an overwhelming desire to help people help themselves
My goal is to inspire people to make better choices, to break free the everyday rut we find ourselves stuck in, and hopefully foster a desire to learn. Ideas make the world go round.
We all can go far in this world but only if we have the right tools and the desire to use them.
That is why I created Melanie-Young.com. The Business Of Being Me.
This website is my journey getting there and it’s dedicated to covering the following topics:
Health and Wellness
Nutrition and Food
Creating financial abundance
The Ever Fascinating Cryptocurrency
Product reviews and more.
To be honest this is not my first attempt at having a blog. This is probably like my third. I’ve had a hard time finding my voice to be able to talk about myself, my goals, and just about any topic in general. That little voice of self-doubt loves to show itself when I sit down to brainstorm about what to write.

Despite being overweight I don’t begrudge those who are much thinner and more physically fit than I. If they have a healthy lifestyle they are great people to learn from.
