Constantly feeling overwhelmed and not sure where to start?

DON’T WORRY, I GET YOU!

Hi, I’m Mel…

 

You’ve probably already done a little bit of a stalk before you got here, but just in case, let me introduce myself (and tell you why I can help).

  • I’m a mum of two, HR & Diversity Strategist and Self Care Expert with a lifetime of tactics for juggling career, life and family.
  • I’ve been where you are, I’ve been through burnout, and I’ve successfully come out the other side to build a life I love.
  • I have experience and formal training in positive psychology, mental health, mentoring, and workplace health and wellbeing.
  • I believe in credible, evidence-based information. I partner with health professionals and experienced experts to deliver accurate and trustworthy resources for my members.

When I started private mentoring, I was excited to draw on all the strategies and connections I’d built during my career of 16+ years to help people. I went looking for a suite of complementing resources for my clients, but I quickly discovered there were so many shiny objects out there that sounded amazing…

but none that were backed by credible experts AND covered a holistic range of self care topics AND were easy to use without prior health or psychology training.

This is why I created The Zest Collective:

 

To bring together everything you need for effective self care, in one place…

Expert information

As a member you’ll have access to the best lifestyle and wellbeing information from experts in their fields who understand the unique challenges women face when trying to juggle it all.

We work with health professionals and experienced experts to deliver information and resources that you can trust.

From burnout to pilates, sleep to nutrition, we cover it all and new resources are added every month.

Support and motivation

It can be hard to know where to start sometimes!

That’s why every month you’ll get new masterclasses and resources – it’s not about binge watching everything, it’s about finding inspiration to try new things and having the information to know how to implement. 

You’ll also be able to ask questions in our private FB community.

Community and connection

We know that time is a limited resource, you may not be able to join a bunch of live calls, but sometimes you still want somewhere to connect and ask questions.

That’s what our private community is for: a safe space to share and ask questions with other Zest Collective members.

How do payments work?

For monthly payments, you will be debited for your membership from the card provided on the same date every month until you cancel.

Your plan will renew on the same date each year until you cancel, but you will receive reminders before you are charged to give you adequate time to cancel before the next payment if you choose to do so.

For more information please see “Can I cancel my membership?”

Will Zest Light help me if I'm burnt out?

If you are looking for support for burnout we would highly recommend looking at our Zest VIP membership tier, which provides group mentoring and live support.

Zest Light does include helpful, and accurate resources on burnout and other wellbeing topics and may be a good starting point if you are looking to supplement existing professional support, however it is entirely self-serve and does not allow for discussion of individual circumstances.

It is important to note that The Zest Collective does not replace the need for individual medical advice from qualified health professionals.

It’s the end of the page as we know it…

(you can’t take the song lyrics out of a geriatric milennial 😂)

the cliff’s notes: Zest LIGHT IS OUR MOST BASIC OPTION AT THE ZEST COLLECTIVE. SHE’S DESIGNED FOR THOSE WITH LIMITED TIME FOR LIVE CALLS AND WHO DON’T WANT A MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION BOX… BUT WHO STILL WANT ACCESS TO ALL OUR RESOURCES TO LEARN FROM AND DIY THEIR SELF CARE.

If  you’RE AFTER EVERYTHING IN ZEST LIGHT BUT WANT A GORGEOUS MONTHLY SELF CARE SUBSCRIPTION BOX TO GO WITH IT, CHECK OUT ZEST CLASSIC.

IF YOU still want more support, INCLUDING LIVE ACCESS TO OUR MASTERCLASSES AND MONTHLY MENTORING, check out Zest VIP!
