Overcoming Mediocrity - Volume VII


Natalya Melnik

Natalya Melnik

Natalya is the mother of seven beautiful children, who are her whole world. She loves Jesus and says, “By the Grace of God, I made it this far.” She came to the USA as a refugee in 1993 and has come to call America her home. She loves cooking, baking, singing, and playing her violin.

Natalya loves creating her own products with the best natural and efficacious ingredients. She became one of the top leaders and directors as an independent brand partner in a natural skincare company. She became one of the faces of the company by working hard to earn the opportunity to be in a photo and video shoot that was offered for the select top leaders of the whole company. Her struggle with cystic acne and scarring led her to finally find a solution after 15 long years, thus leading to her mission to help others with skin concerns. She is empowering women to feel beautiful in their own skin and uses positive techniques to show that people are beautiful both on the inside and the outside. Motivating and uplifting others are the key components she builds all of her principles around, so that others can catch some light and begin to shine!

She hopes to share her story of heartache, failure, and hitting rock bottom, and how she scrambled out of it all, rose, took a stand and went after success with all her might, with others so that they too can have hope and follow her example of never giving up.

She shares her essential tips to follow; tips that gave her the strength and courage to keep going, no matter what. She learned to see the bigger picture, knowing that breakthrough may be just around the corner, and if she gives up now she will never achieve her dreams and goals.

What’s in Your Back Pocket?

I never realized that I was strong. I just figured that I was getting through life. I mean we’re all given our cross to bear right? God doesn’t give us more than we can handle? Why am I strong? I found my way very late in life…but I FOUND MY WAY! Finally, this is what I was meant to do…and the journey here was, quite the adventure.
