Melanie Curtis - Take a leap as I speak with Melanie Curtis - Speaker, Coach, Author and Professional Skydiver. Melanie helps high-achievers through fear and the feelings that come with it. She helps them build the internal emotional skills Type A perfectionists so often find they don't have when life serves up a challenge they can't seem to figure out a way through. "When we give ourselves evidence that we can do a thing that we thought we could not do, then our fear dissipates. Our confidence rises in that experience." Melanie is super inspiring, funny and down to earth. We talk about her journey from finance to skydiving to life coach and how she's used fear and bravery to move herself and her clients forward. We talk about how one question changed her life. And at the end of the podcast I'm going to let you know more about an amazing group she is working with to honor the 100-year anniversary of the 19th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution which gave women the right to vote. Hint, it involves empowering women and skydiving. Her mantra - Be brave. Rest. Repeat. Let's Figure It Out with Melanie Curtis. ________________________________ Many thanks to Melanie for joining me at The Co-Co in Summit for our conversation.

Melanie has co-founded the Women's Skydiving Network Pro Team - WSN Pro Team and here's what they're doing. In 1920 women in the US were guaranteed the right to vote following the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution. Countless women were brave enough to encourage and influence the women’s suffrage movement. To honor the 100-year anniversary of the 19th Amendment, through the sport of skydiving Melanie and her skydiving community will celebrate and honor these courageous women by bravely showing the world what they do. The Team will tour the country in 2020 completing a series of monumental jumps in the name of women’s empowerment and gender equality. The jumps will culminate in a 100-woman Vertical World Record attempt called Project 19. The project is fully sponsored by the Women’s Skydiving Network.
