Women are creators. Our resilience and grit enhance our efforts as change agents with real power. Some might say we possess superhero abilities. The tiniest act on our part can have a far-reaching impact, which makes our mindful leadership essential. As creatives, we play in the world of “what might be” and get to balance scenarios and solutions. We create with integrity and purpose while building our professional credibility, financial stability, and life experiences. If we are bold and wise, we can drive the future toward a more diverse, inclusive, expansive, and sustainable way of thinking, doing, and being.
Craftsmanship & Mindfulness
Mindfulness is essential in craftsmanship. We must know who we are and why we do what we do. As creators and innovators, it is important to balance our love of creating with wisdom and purpose to keep goals and priorities on track as there are so many demands on our time. Through focused effort, we can achieve mastery. Mel Lim offers a simple set of guidelines she calls The Rules of Mastery to help advance our craft.

Working with Mel was amazing! She was everything that we could have asked for. From the first minute of meeting with her, it felt like we had been friends for a long time, and she made the entire process a pleasurable experience. She has an amazing story and brings an incredible energy into the room. I wish we had more time with her to get more of her massive amounts of knowledge. I learned so much in the limited time we spoke together. She is a master at her craft, and her way of storytelling is inspiring and brings you on a journey. If anyone is looking for a speaker for any event, she would be an excellent choice. I couldn’t recommend having Mel Lim as a speaker enough!

The Curious Case of Fashion, Tech, Architecture, and Quantum Mechanics
The first thing Mel Lim will tell you is “Dream Bigger.” She exhorts her clients to reach beyond the known, imagine inconceivable possibilities and think and problem-solve in a dimensional, if not multi-dimensional way. An award-winning designer, innovation strategist, and tech nerd, Mel is a force of nature with a tiny voice. Yet she will excitedly weave you a story of how discipline, craftsmanship, and limitless imagination opened the doors to all that she loves and finds inspiring: fashion, hand work, architecture, math, storytelling, theoretical physics, innovation, problem-solving, human advancement and opportunities to create not just a better world, but a multiverse of better worlds. Mel views the world mindfully and meticulously through multiple lenses. She seeks patterns and builds foundations and dimensional spaces using color, shapes, form, textures, and structure. She takes her ideas and her clients to surprising, delightful, and visionary places, challenging us not to be limited by everything we think we already know and broadening our perspective and understanding of the dimensions of space, time, and infinite possibility.
You are a creator. With every thought, word, and action, you impact the whole world and manifest new realities. The worlds you bring into being directly reflect your own awareness, personal development, compassion, values, and commitment to every worthwhile endeavor. This book is a field guide to your own personal truths and their very global impact. It offers a step-by-step examination, in no particular order, of one’s work ethic, processes, perceptions, motivations, aspirations, and integrity. This timely guide offers relevant insights as we move into a future where fewer resources will necessitate the use of our greater creativity, innovation, and ethical sensibility, and where, with our global-mindedness, we will be called upon to make heart-centered choices. Within these pages, Mel extends an invitation to join an evolution of mindfulness, where it is each person’s responsibility to know themselves fully, to understand and act upon their inner authority, and to help create a world that is compassionate, healthy, and beautiful.
