“I want to make self-discovery and self-nourishment more accessible, so more people can find their own best way to live a positive, inspired and fulfilled life. Life + Me is about repositioning self-care, wellbeing and personal development for the everyday woman, and showing that there’s no right or wrong way to do it, only the way that works for you. My aim is to provide you with a place you LOVE. A one-stop-shop full of expert guidance, inspiration, gorgeous products and effective experiences, to help you create your own approach to how you look after and fuel your mind, with a toolkit to match. It’s a place to help discover what makes you FEEL GOOD.”
Life + Me is founded by Sam Miller. Having established a successful career in PR + Marketing, Sam got fed up with the repetitive – ambition, success, burnout, stuck – cycle of her twenties. Contemplating the practicalities of a ‘work-life’ balance, she also realised she was generally feeling zapped of inspiration and life was feeling a bit… blah. Confused with what direction to take, but determined to follow her personal interests, she trained and qualified in results-based Life Coaching alongside her day job. Feeling a buzz for learning and unlocking some key life tools, especially within a field that supported people with their own wellbeing and life goal achievements, her training also set her on a new path.
Following her interest in people and the mind, Sam went on to further study Psychology. She left her corporate job and took a full-time role as a mental health support worker with the NHS, where she worked with individuals living with a range of clinical conditions; from anxiety and depression, to schizophrenia and dissociative personality disorder, to those with drug dependency, and provided them with support in the self-management of their own care.
Supporting people at the point of need was the most fulfilling work Sam had experienced, but she couldn’t help wondering if her own personal experience might be used to reach a broader audience – others who felt zapped, or in a cycle of modern living that left them unsatisfied and imbalanced. Back in the city, she started her own consultancy working with a number of innovative businesses in this field. Wanting to empower individuals to adopt their own approach to emotional wellbeing and to help people discover brilliant tools and services in this area, the concept of Life + Me was born.
Another key aspect of Life + Me is the business and commercial marketing support that the platform offers to the growing number of noteworthy new businesses operating in this sector. Bridging the gap between those who are actively seeking innovative products and services in the wellbeing industry with those new businesses who are looking to reach them, Life + Me offers a trusted and recommended space to help grow awareness and support discovery.
We hope you enjoy!
