Mell Balment
Published author, MC, public speaker, dating Consultant, advocate & wing-girl for men.
After her divorce in 2007, hopeless romantic Mell Balment became a serial dater going on over 70 first dates. Eventually she realised she wasn’t dating duds, it was in fact her that was the problem, she had become an ‘Alpha Bitch’.
Published author Mell learnt first hand what was and wasn't working through online dating encounters, specifically the differences between profile descriptions and reality. Additionally like many singles, Mell struggled to know where to find the RIGHT one for Love.
Her philosophy is simple “We set up imago matches to help us become the best version of ourselves. If we know that the purpose of being in a relationship is to grow and learn, then we can truly appreciate every person that shows up in our life. There are no duds, just mirrors reflecting what we need to be the best version of ourselves.”
Mell was able to let go of her (masculine) strong, independent façade and now helps others to see how emasculation is occurring in today’s disconnected society creating more difficulties for men than ever.
After finding herself repeating the same messages time after time, it occurred to her that writing a book would enable the advise to get into the hands of many more, at a much more accessible price point.
It occurred to Mell that starting a Meetup group would be a great way of bringing singles together. Through that group she was able to gather the exact frustrations of today’s singles.
“Why wont they return my calls after initially showing great interest.”
“They were nothing like their profile in person.”
“Why do I keep attracting the wrong ones!?”
Along the way Mell met her business mentor Stewart Flemming who publishes the Coaching Life magazine, she really is mixing with the elite! Stewart’s mantra is that “Teachers, want you to learn; coaches, want you to win”. Mell has taken this philosophy to apply winning formulas to all of her clients.
All of this has led to the online TV channel The Point TV combined with her radio segment on Logan FM where Mell interviews coaches, experts and other professionals - as well as singles - to address their frustrations.
Mell’s stance on online dating is a strong one. ‘Don’t date if you’re not ready to be in a relationship or can’t be authentic about why you are meeting that person.’ So many reports of frustrated on-liners have people giving up hope and belief that the right one is still out there for them.
Expectations are higher than ever resulting in more rejections, which is making resilience tricky.
Through following her own practices she met her own life partner. He admits that he knew he loved her within the first 20 minutes of talking to her, such a rare clarity these days!
Mell’s unique concept of being a wing girl to men is based upon the premise of why would a man go dating with a single male mate, when you can hire a female to provide the truth about what women really want?
With a rock solid believe that love does makes the world go round, Mell’s mission is to reqch and teach 10,00 single men the skills to date modern women successfully. She genuinely wants to help singles to connect on an authentic and honest level. So when they turn up for a first date they show us a whole authentic package rather than a slick window dressing based on what they think people want.
Through her book, programs, teachings and workshops she teaches people how to
Identify their unique qualities so they can show up authentically and confidently
Establish what their dream life would be, with or without their partner
Have the tools to take online dating into the real world, for offline dating.
With so much support available to empower women, her mission is to help the men keep up! Therefore serving all.
Mell lives with her soul mate Regan in the western suburbs of Brisbane with their 2 Burmese kittens Safka and Zaya and loves spending her evening having a giggle over a snifter of Whisky.

Yvonne lost most of her sight due to an unexpected illness. Within 3 months she went from having 20/20 vision to having 20/10,000 and sees no color. She compares how she sees like looking through wax paper.

Yvonne has developed a passion to help the newly disabled person realize that their life does not end when they become disabled. She looks at it like they are starting a new life and it is one that she helps them figure out what they want it to look like. She often refers to the time of her life when she was sighted as her previous life. She feels that her new life is even better and she is so excited to be able to help others find and realize their dreams. She does this by helping her clients identify their goals and then set achievable steps which she holds them accountable.

 

If you are looking for a professional that has been in your shoes then you have come to the right place. Yvonne lost most of her sight in 2004 and knows what it feels like to have the rug pulled out from under you. After losing most of her sight she went to college and earned her bachelor of social work degree, graduating with honors.

 

She discovered that even though there are many rehab services available, none are designed to help a person decide what to do now that their life is turned upside down. That is why she started Fresh Outlook Coach so she can be there for others that are going through what she went through.

 

Helping the newly disabled person realize that their life does not end when they become disabled by helping them set and obtain their goals and reach for the stars!

Yvonne also trains hospitals and doctor offices on how to work with their disabled patients and is working on a brochure for them to refer back to once the training is over.

Yvonne has also found that there are times that families have trouble with the transition so she has developed an intensive program to help the whole family get on the same page.

 

And if that isn’t enough since Yvonne has lost her parents, her mom shortly after losing her sight she also coaches people through their grief since she sees the correlation between becoming disabled and losing a loved one.

living in Cebu, Philippines serving his clients globally.

I had all but given up prior to 2011. Life was miserable. I struggled just to try to be positive and have a litle happiness in my life. My marriage was broken. I saw no hope for the future. I was 53. I definitely thought the best days were behind me and I would have to work until I died. A few years later I got divorced (A good thing).

Fast forward to today in Oct, 2016. I moved from USA to Cebu, Philippines and my house is right on the beach and the sunsets are absolutely beautiful. I'm happy all the time no matter what is happening around me. Life happens for us, not to us. I'm engaged to a beautiful, supportive, and loving woman. My businesses are expanding. A lot more passive income so I can enjoy each day of my life. I have never been happier and more full of joy than I am now and life just gets better and better every day and I know you can enjoy life fully also.

Dr. Dan Margolin is a practicing podiatrist with over 29 years experience, and a practice that ranks in the top 3% in the country. Dan's current practice is his second, and in comparison, wildly successful to his first. Dan learned exactly what he need to do, to build a business that would grow quickly, with little interaction from himself.

Dan has had an incredible journey, as a doctor and as a businessman. After founding his first practice, things were not going quite splendidly, but Dan learned a management technology that saved his practice. He then decided that he would go out and introduce this technology to others as a consultant, and sold his practice. However, a consultant without a successful practice was not a believable one, and he started a new game, creating a bigger, better practice than ever before.

This inspiration journey, proved so much so, that he felt the need to write it down, and authored Fast Tracking Your Prosperity. Dan was inspired to write his book as a way to give his words of wisdom to his daughter.

In addition to his current business, Dan an business partner, Justin Feinberg, started Effective Management. Their program is directed towards helping businesses train their staff to peak performance and increase their bottom line by upwards of 30%.

Shortly after the birth of her second baby in 1987, Lori has been working with breastfeeding mothers and babies. As a Certified Childbirth Educator and a Certified Birth Doula, Lori has assisted hundreds of women with early breastfeeding challenges in her initial role as a peer breastfeeding counselor. In 1998, Lori decided to take formal training to become an IBCLC.

Her first step was to become a Certified Breastfeeding Counselor (CBC). As Lori began to understand her limitations as a CBC and recognize the delicate intricacy of the field of lactation, she decided to take the plunge and formally apply to the International Board of Certified Lactation Examiners to become an IBCLC. Lori was extremely fortunate to find an experienced and dedicated IBCLC to mentor her.

Under her mentors guidance, Lori studied and worked with breastfeeding woman in a variety of settings. Lori spent the next two years gleaning experiences interning in several hospitals, Woman, Infants and Children (WIC) offices, observing other IBCLC's in lactation clinics and private practices.

Since 1998, as an IBCLC employed at Phoenix Baptist between 1999 and 2007, Lori consulted with over 7,000 mothers during their hospital stay. Teaching breastfeeding classes have been a part of her everyday work and cumulatively Lori has taught well over 1,000 classes. Sharing accurate and current information, using evidence based research is a source of pride with Lori, to ensure parents have the very best information and are empowered to make the best decision for their family. Lori lives with her husband Alan and is surrounded by her 3 children, ages 31, 29 and 26, who all live in close proximity to her. All three children were breastfed until they self weaned. Lori holds a membership in the following professional organizations.
