Hi! I'm Merry Lynch
I was one of the lucky ones. I had a wonderful upbringing. My parents were a loving couple that lived their values and passed them onto my brother and two sisters. We lived on a dead end street for most of our childhood, that had 23 others kids living on it as well. Needless to say, we had a blast.
Then you know, shit happened. A rape, two divorces, a child custody case that I lost...you know the usual stuff. It kind of knocked my center of gravity out from underneath me. But I just kept moving on, because that was what we did.
I dove head first into my career, which was robust, taking me all over the country (USA) and parts of Europe. I was hooked on movement, travel, people, culture. My career helped me to compile some very special traits which afforded me looking at the world through the lens of abundance.
People that I worked for encouraged my growth. Providing for further schooling in human behaviors, emotional intelligence, protocol, women’s studies. What I did not realize at the time is that these degrees and certifications laid the groundwork for an intertwined view of the inside workings of who we are as humans and how we either achieve or don’t.
I left the corporate world and went out on my own, three weeks before my fortieth birthday. A big hairy scary goal that I had. This move to becoming an entrepreneur led me to serve dignitaries, political officers, authors, actors and other amazing prominent persons. I blossomed and married my soul mate. I had done some deep inner work on myself. Letting go of old stories that no longer served me. Releasing the negative self-talk. Realizing that the universe really did have my back.
My clients were pretty incredible people and my learning about myself and my self-worth only deepened. Through the help of mentors, I began sharing my cumulative background of experiences and schooling with others. That began over 25 years ago and I haven’t stopped.

Why I Do What I Do
I understand what happens when life kicks you down. When you feel like you can’t catch a breath. When you believe your life does not matter. But I also know, that those thoughts are all shit stories that I/you made up. God, Allah, Angels, whom ever you believe in, did not in any way place me or you on this planet to live a suck ass life.
It took over 1 million sperm to make me…and you…for that matter. That in itself is pretty special. So if you have read this far, then the one thing I know for sure, is that….you’ve had some shit happen in your life. You’ve been kicked down; maybe more than once. The air sucked out of you. But…I also know…that you are a freaking miracle. You made it here. You survived. You see and feel that there is something more to life and something more to you. Congratulations! That in and of itself needs to be celebrated.
Now, go peruse this website (it is a work in progress, so come back often). It’s always changing. Stuff is always being added and updated. It’s a plethora of mindset work, topics, programs and coaching opportunities that will help you understand and navigate life, a community of global women that rock my soul and that will yours as well if you allow them. So, get curious. See what is available for you. This is all for you. Take what you need, when you need it. I’ll see you on the inside.
