“You don’t have to follow in the footsteps that have been laid out for you. You can create your own future.” This, more or less, is the spine of my conversation with Melissa DaSilva, a successful physical NFT artist, entrepreneur, therapist, and coach who motivates other LGBTQ+ individuals and artists to take their life and career to the next level. She is the author of “The Profitable Practice: Helping Healing Professionals Build and Grow a Successful Business.”

  • Guilt and resentment – on both sides of an equation – are part of the territory
  • A difficult childhood brings with it valuable lessons
  • Everybody’s flawed! Our role models AND our anti-role models
