Melissa Jones, founder of the Girls Positivity Club joins me on the podcast today!!
Melissa grew up as an ordinary middle-class girl in Indiana who had loving and supportive parents. Over time, she lost her sense of self when she moved schools, when her dad was diagnosed with brain cancer, and when she stopped taking care of her body thereby losing any self-esteem and confidence she ever had in herself.
It wasn’t until she joined a community of women looking to transform their lives that she finally began to transform hers and she started asking herself why there wasn’t a consistent voice in the community pouring into teaching girls positive habits and confidence techniques while joining them together to form this bigger sense of belonging. There were programs, but nothing that was consistently teaching young girls how to be proactive in confidence and self-worth before adulthood.
Melissa created Girls Positivity Club where she works directly with girls through weekly virtual coaching groups and clubs teaching girls how to have positive habits in self-belief, confidence, and empowerment for themselves and in supporting other girls.
This episode is hosted by Lindsey Hein.
