016 – Owning Your Story with Purpose with Mel Yu

Today I am joined by Mel Yu, the entrepreneur behind Ego Expo, MCO events and an avid keynote speaker for Suicide Prevention. This episode is a powerhouse of information and inspiration. Get ready to cry, laugh and learn from this incredible woman. We discuss life after losing your love to suicide, the importance of going ‘within’, self work and self love, building and growing business, owning your story and much, much more!

Hello my dear friends, welcome back to the Plant Based Body Podcast.

Today’s episode is extremely special; I am joined by the incredible women that is, Mel Yu.

Mel has an incredible story. I feel extremely honoured to have been trusted with holding space for Mel as she takes us through her journey.

And what a journey it has been!

Mel has experienced her fair share of hardship. After experiencing family troubles early in life and dealing with racism and bullying in school, in 2014 Mel then lost her partner Gus, to suicide.

It was that heartbreaking and earth shattering kind of love. And the loss of this was something that rocked Mel to her core. What could have been an easy path for Mel to fall into a spiral of depression as well, over the years she has found new strength and has been able to take her lowest point and turn it into power; as an advocate for suicide prevention.

Mel has become an advocate for mental health and is an avid key note speaker. Mel is also the entrepreneur behind Ego Expo and MCO Events, two incredible businesses that are taking Melbourne and Australia by storm.

This amazing lady has so much knowledge and wisdom to share and this episode is a power house of inspiration. I left this conversation buzzing, and I know you will too.

In this episode Mel and I discuss:

  • Mel’s journey
  • Shifting your perspective
  • Suicide and life after
  • Letting blame and shame go
  • Living your life ‘in flow’
  • Hitting rock bottom and finding the strength to rise back up
  • Fostering self awareness
  • Reaching out for help and finding the right person to talk to
  • The power of going ‘within’
  • Building a mental health network
  • The power of vulnerability
  • Owning your story with purpose
  • Becoming A self-made business woman
  • Investing in yourself
  • Leading with kindess
  • Conscious content consumption
  • Positive affirmations for self love
  • Finding gratitude

“The worst thing you can leave behind, is a story untold”.

I am so humbled to share this powerful episode with you all and cannot thank Mel enough for her time and for sharing so openly.
