Melinda Lejman

I am a coach, writer, and communications specialist with almost a decade of experience working in the non-profit sector. 

I am proud to call Memphis my home where I am raising three beautiful children with my husband. I earned a BA in Technical and Professional Writing and an MA in Teaching English as a Second Language from the University of Memphis.

My mission is to be a loving and creative visionary, powerfully manifesting and inspiring an incredible world of extraordinary integrity, gratitude, and peace.

Why Life Design?

I love stories and I love helping others create meaning through storytelling. Life Design is the only curriculum I have found that emphasizes the importance of our “way of being” in every situation. How we choose to show up and what we believe is possible in every moment of every day creates the story we get to tell about our lives!

Fun Fact

I have always dreamed of traveling across the continental U.S. in an RV with my family and being able to take my office with me into the great outdoors. Thanks to Life Design, I am making that dream a reality!

My Mission Statement

I am a loving and creative visionary, powerfully manifesting and inspiring an incredible world of extraordinary integrity, gratitude, and peace.

Life Design has been a gift for me.  I have struggled with depression, anxiety and addiction for most of my adult life. Life Design coupled with my coach’s guidance gave me the tools I needed to break free from the bondage of my ego and open the door to discovering the power of my true essence.

Life Design provided a structure to reevaluate all the areas of my life.  I now see clearly what I came here to do and what talents I could use to be of further service in the world. If you are feeling that your life lacks focus and meaning, Life Design is a great place to try look through a different lens with a strong life coach and powerful tools of transformation to shift your levels of awareness and your life.

In the Life Design program, I found an inner strength and confidence. Four years since completing Life Design I have paid off back taxes, doubled my income and have become a Licensed Teacher in my Spiritual Center. I have found the Life Design Program such an integral part of my growth and well-being that I have also become a Certified Life Design Coach. I am doing and accomplishing things now that before seemed like just a dream.

I took Life Design several years ago. It is a expansive, and impactful coaching process. Truly life changing! So much so that I became a certified life design coach. I would highly recommend this.

I have taken Jackie Woodside 's Life Design program twice. The process is transformational. What I love is that it combines concrete activities to assess and change your life to reflect your desires and provides easy strategies to shift the negative underlying limiting beliefs and fears which impact the experience you have of your life.
