Wellness Begins with Truth

Hey! I’m Mel, the visionary behind ToBeReal. You may remember me ​from my appearance on the hit 60 Minutes segment, "The Big Quit" ​as one of the many that contributed to “The Great Resignation” ​during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

I was shocked when I received the invitation because I didn’t realize ​I was part of a movement when I quit my job, I was just following my ​gut. I was unhappy, and I felt like life was too short to continue ​playing it safe while waiting for something to happen.

Since 2014 I have been on a radical journey to authenticity and ​awareness of self and I am ready to share what I have learned along ​the way.

TBR Talks

I am thrilled to announce that I will be offering workshops in ​2024! In addition, I am available for speaking engagements and ​group facilitation services. Please feel free to contact me for ​further information at
