Returning to my Tribe with Melanie Kovacs
Melanie is a business coach and the co-founder of Joypreneurs, a community for women in innovation who want to build something of their own, with ease and joy.
Melanie has been on a journey herself, finding that joy is her motivator. Being part of the Better Bolder Braver community, the THNK School of Creative Leadership and also The Happy Startup School communities have helped her with this, as she has enjoyed creating for creating’s sake, learning a lot about herself along the way. She sees entrepreneurialism as another self-growth tool, and is keen to support other women on a similar path to find joy too.
Melanie is an example of a coach who has chosen to find, guide and inspire people with similar experiences to her. This is not an appropriate niching path for all coaches, for whom working with people just like them may be triggering. But for Melanie - who is hugely inspired by Joseph Campbell’s The Hero’s Journey - it is important for her to “return to her tribe”, tell her story, help people explore and play. And, as a result, find joy and clarity on their next (work) steps.
With Better Bolder Braver behind her, Melanie is continuing to find joy, stay curious, find her people and also be open - to collaborative models and to what she builds next.
So much of this conversation will no doubt resonate with many coaches.
