Who is Melissa?
I’m a mother who lost a child, a healer who practices happiness every day, and a joy-obsessed vibrant woman ✨ living that iconic life. What makes my life iconic? Well, I believe that when a woman accesses her inner icon everything changes. She begins living her purpose with success and joy because her beliefs, choices and outcomes are so aligned that no one can touch her. She knows who she is on every level. She’s connected to her intuitive wisdom and inner resources. And she’s ready to take on the world. Better yet – the world has taken notice. She’s so full of vibrant love that she’s become the positive ripple effect in the lives of everyone around her. And I’ll let you in on a little secret … there’s an icon within every woman – especially you.
“I happen to my life. Life doesn’t happen to me.”
– Melissa Hull
You might not believe me yet,
but that’s why I’m on a mission to challenge what it means to be an Iconic Woman. I want women to know it’s absolutely possible to be the conscious creator of their own lives. To arrive at a place where they feel vibrant and fully alive. I’m determined to make empowered living accessible for every woman.
But I didn’t always feel this way. In fact, I didn’t know any of this was possible until I lived through it myself.....
Happiness – and even joy – are absolutely possible again, but you have to choose it every single day.
You see, I’ve known trauma from a young age. But my story really starts on May 19, 2000, when I lost my son, Drew, in an accidental drowning. He was 4½ years old, and while I had fallen asleep, my Drewby slipped out the back door, fell into a canal, and drowned. His brother, Devin, had been up for days with severe asthma, and my husband was traveling for work. I was exhausted and holding the world on my shoulders – but when I woke up and saw Drew was gone, it was impossible not to blame myself. The grief of losing a child is one thing. The weight of blaming yourself for it is simply too much to carry. I tried. But a month after losing Drew, my husband left me, confirming my deepest fears that it was all my fault. I was so heartbroken and defeated that I didn’t know how to exist another day. So one night, I sat down at my desk and tried to write my final goodbyes. As I struggled to find the words, I suddenly noticed an unopened letter that read: To the Mother of Drew. I opened it, and the words of a complete stranger changed my life forever. She wrote to me about the loss of her daughter, and how she knew I would blame myself, too.
Without her letter, I couldn’t promise you’d be reading this today.
But the woman I know simply as Teresa gave me an example of real hope, and that’s all I needed in order to try – for Devin and for myself. That night I made the commitment to do the work, and it changed everything. Once I opened myself to the possibility of healing and happiness, the steps that came next fell into place with a little bit of research and a lot of intuition.
MY AREAS OF EXPERTISE
MY AWARDS AND ACCOLADES
For so long, I thought it was about surviving, overcoming, succeeding, healing. But now I realize it’s about living. It’s about learning to access that inner place of self-love that opens you up to an empowered life of your own design. It’s been a journey, but today I have the knowledge, experience and tools it takes to recreate a joyful life on the other side of unthinkable circumstances. In fact, I’ve spent 20+ years learning
from different disciplines, mentors, therapists, healers, arts and sciences. I even find lessons on the tennis court every day. The best part is: I wrote it all down. I’m talking journals full. A home- library worth of research. Plus decades of raw, vulnerable conversations with women just like you. It’s all here. It’s all possible. And I promise it’s all within you. You are one decision, once choice, one thought, away from the life you truly want.
Are you ready to live an iconic life?
Lessons From Neverland
Written by Melissa Hull
I wrote a letter to Drew every day, and after a year, I published my memoir, Lessons from Neverland. As the pain began to give way to new meaning, I eventually spoke about overcoming it all, and I was invited to grace stages from LA to Dubai. Through it all, I fought like Hell to not only keep but strengthen my relationship with God.
I discovered what I was truly capable of – I’d discovered the path to an iconic life.
