Here are so follow up questions I got to ask!

How/why did you start your business? 
It was totally by accident I was just tired of working as a nurse so I started painting signs and writing after the loss of my parents and just dealing with daily life. I truly want to create something for women to relax and know it ok to take care of ourselves. We matter and can not take care of those around us unless first, we love ourselves.
What makes your business unique? 
I help women to clear their minds by painting farm animals and power words for a positive day. I truly believe it all begins in our attitude to being positive and looking for the good in everything we do. I believe when we love those around us and show the respect that you can accomplish anything with hard work and determination. I pray that I give that to those around me daily.
What impact do you want to have in the world or change you want to see or make happen? 
I want to inspire women to love themselves first and then those around them. no mom guilt allowed doing what you love just give yourself 30 minutes daily.
Are You Happy with your business, What makes you happy, And What Would You Change? 
Yes, I am happy with my business because I am doing what I love and I cannot wait till I can paint again with others in person and party. My business gives me the freedom to be with my family more to make memories while I can still make money to provide for them. I do this by my Graceful Art chicks and selling online paint parties.
Did You Experience Failures? If So, What Did You Learn From Them 
In the beginning, I sold signs and people did want them they just wanted me to teach them so I do with my parties. Yes, I fail daily but I have learned just get up and keep tweaking till I get it right.
How Did You Handle Adversity And Doubt? 
I do a lot of self-reflection but I will never give up I come from a long line of strong women my granny Ruby. stepmom Joann and my aunts all been really good examples to show me what hard work and taking care of your family looks like.
Do You Plan On Growing Your Business? How? 
Yes, I currently will be opening my group Graceful Art Chicks in September. Ihttps://lp.constantcontactpages.com/su/WgpNVwf/gracefulartchicks I enjoy our sisterhood we have developed I look forward to creating fall and Christmas crafts with them. I am currently working on a products paint stencils shirts cups and baby onesie for gifts starting in October.
Do you think self-love and trust are important in running a successful business? Why? 
Yes, you have to love yourself first before you can give to others. You can not serve your customers if you don’t love yourself first. you establish trust with your customers by keeping your word first to yourself by doing what you love and secondly by serving your customers with an open and loving heart by giving your customers What they want and more of it and they will give to you. You will Build relationships together and will find that it is not working but a labor of love.
What advice would you give someone who is interested in starting their own business? 
I would say go for it you never know what could happen but do it wisely. Do your research on what you are wanting to do to make sure there is a market. Find your niche and do it,

I've got a wonderful guest, Melissa, who is the owner and creator of a graceful barn, and she's got a really interesting story and the way that she does things is really wonderful and I'm excited to have her on the shell. And without further ado here is Melissa. Let me bring you up here. Hello. Hi. Thank you for having me. Yes.
Thank you so much for being here. I'm very excited to have you on, and we've got a chance to get to know each other and to hear your story and why you created the graceful barn and all of the amazing things that you put such detail into. So please tell us, who are you and how did you get started? Well, my name's Melissa,
Melissa McFadden, Tyler McFadden, my name, um, and I actually got started. It was kinda crazy. Um, my husband and I sold our other house and we, my husband's a contractor and he had decided to, we had drawn this Barnhouse year in, we were getting ready to put her other house off the market and it sold in like a week.
So we didn't have land or anything and just, you know, God, God blessed us. We found a piece of property and we built our barn house and I was just so thankful to have it that, uh, you know, I told him, I said, I really felt like I needed to start a business. And, uh, I decided to,
because I wanted to give it to him. First of all, I wanted to give it to him because the Lord had blessed us, blessed my family with it. So that's how I came up with my name, the gross foot barn. And basically I just, uh, I started off doing paint parties. Um, my mentor was Heidi easily, um,
but Texas art. And so, and I just started, you know, heightened between watching her and watching YouTube and I journaled, um, journal, just going through just difficulties in my life. Um, from an actually early age, probably late twenties. I started just writing in notebooks. A lot of people didn't even know I'd done it. My family didn't know it,
you know, or anything. I just kinda wrote my thoughts down. And then I just thought, well, you know, it helped me to, uh, when I started painting too, uh, work through the process where I had lost my parents, it really gave me peace. And I, I thought, you know, I wanted to be able to do that for other people.
So I thought, you know, the writing helped me in the painting, helped me because it was like my therapy. So I just combined them. I combined the three things I love, which is, uh, farm animals, words, which is scriptures, and because like power words and then art. So that Todd comes up with my graceful, uh,
my graceful barn. And, you know, I have a group now called the gross for cheeks. I love it. And that's was what was so beautiful is, you know, we see these paint parties and, you know, it's a great time to get together with your friends and, you know, have wine, whatever the case may be. But what I really loved about yours is it went a step deeper and it really is about helping people transform through,
um, struggles and, and having something to lean on. Cause a lot of people to talk about journaling and we talk about, you know, meditation and different forms of releasing stress and being able to be centered. And I want you to walk us through kind of your process and tell us how you're able to, um, go through and just start your day.
Cause you told me about how you started it with this process and for, So you who don't know her business Is a painting party, but you do everything right And you're getting ready to start a membership. Um, but she teaches you how to do certain things, but then she adds these other elements. So it's not just your typical paint party, which is amazing for me.
Uh, tell us a little bit about that process and what that looks like. Okay. Well, I actually did in, in, into, you know, actual restaurant parties, when COVID I had to change my business, I was like, okay, I'm just gonna, I'm like sitting at home, um, with all this happening. So I decided I'm going to learn,
I'm going to learn. So I just gripped in, as I said, I was under Heidi, Heidi taught me how to do a lot of stuff online. And I just really tried to process how I wanted to bring the three things I liked so well together. So what I do is I do what's called art journaling and my art journaling. Like I will,
sometimes I use markers. Sometimes I use paint. Sometimes I'll use just different materials, even crayons. You don't have to have anything fancy to do it. Now, I did it actually with markers and water and a pipe brush. So pretty. And I just, and I always try to put a power word when I say power word is something that is powerful to me.
That gives me peace. It might be a strength. It may be a peace lover. Um, sometimes I'll rock compassion or faith, a different, just something that's meaningful to me. And then what I do is I just more or less kind of scribble and things on it. And I've been trying to clean it up a little bit. Cause I'm what they call Missy painter.
And I feel like I need to bring it together a little bit better, but like on this day I just took, I always draw me a line. And on this side of it, I always put, I, I give myself a choice. I do my favorite things that a lot, while I'm doing this, I like to put my favorite music on that.
I like, or if I don't want music, I'll put my favorite movie online painting because I want it to be my time. Because as a mother, you know, as a mother and my youngest just turned 18 last week. So I mean, I've, I've w you know, just nail starting with adulthood with him, I've got an older son.
That's just got a baby recently, a baby. So laugh, just, you know, we can get consumed with laughing as moms. We don't take care of ourselves. And that was one of the reasons I wanted to do this because I wanted to think, you know, we have to love ourselves first, before we can give to those around us.
I mean, you can't, you can't run your business. If you don't take time to just clear your thoughts and that's, and that's basically what the painting does painting and journaling does for me is it helps me clear my thoughts while I'm using those brush strokes and I'm listening to my music, or, you know, and sometimes it might not be gospel.
I may listen to rock and roll. I may listen to the country. I don't listen to just one certain style of music. I like all things. So I'll just listen to what I liked that day. And if I'm needing something upbeat, I will turn something up, beat on and I will jam down. Like I even have a dance party upstairs in my room.
So, I mean, it's, it's all about the, you have to love yourself and, and it's, it's been kind of a process for me to learn to do that. You know, it is a process for all of us. Yeah. It didn't come overnight. It may need it, it was a long process. Um, but I always take on this side of it,
I will write either a favorite song, lyric, or a favorite movie quote, or a favorite quote from a person or an I, a Bible scripture is how I do it. Now on this particular one, I wrote at First Corinthians 16, 14, it says, let all your things be done with charity. And so I just did some little scribbles and put it on there.
And then I basically do it. Like, it's not my letters to God, or, you know, my journal for the day. Just my thought process is how I do it. And I always date and time it, I just always put the date on it. So it helps me to reflect too. And so I put, um, I'm thankful for my beautiful,
for the beautiful day my family has had. And, uh, I'm, I'm just basically riding to please protect my family and watch over my children and my new granddaughter. Cause we had just got her. And I said I pray for, uh, straight for my cousins. As I had had some cousins that had recently lost their father, you know,
just basically asking for peace for them. And then I sign it just like I'm writing the letter. That's just how I do it pretty much. So I think that this is such a great way to combine things because I fully believe, and this is what I teach my students, that it is self-love first. We have to learn to love and trust in ourselves first and trust in our intuition.
And what is so wonderful about what you're doing is I teach them more like I have to do my meditation. I love meditation. It's not for everyone. And everyone looks at me and says, Oh, I can't really clear my thoughts. Well, meditation is in so many different forms and see for me, I feel like that what you're doing, you're painting,
you're being very, um, methodical About the way you're doing it. And you are clearing your thoughts and helping yourself to release things that don't serve you. It's the same thing as meditation. It's just a different way of doing it. Just like some people go out for walks and they listen to, you know, something like, whatever gets you centered in your,
into your higher self helps so much, but I love the way you added the different layers and that you're taking this passion and you're helping other women see this. I think that it's so beautiful to create this type of space for women to, you know, think outside of the box and do things that are a little bit different. Oh yeah. It's like,
it's like a sisterhood almost, you know, um, for my community, that's what I'm wanting is like a sisterhood. And inside my group, I do, we do journaling. We also have paintings that we do. And a lot of times I think too when we do paintings, if you think about it, you could put your thoughts or your prayers on are on the painting,
on the canvas, just with the pencil and then cover it up. Cause you know, it's third, but you're releasing it. And I, um, I love doing that too while I'm listening to music and things. So I just like, there's very, um, words have meaning whether, um, whether they're negative or they're positive, you know,
and that's just how life is you. You can choose to look at a glass half full or half empty. It's all in how you perceive it. And he's taking me a long time because let me tell you when I was in my twenties, I was negative Lissa. I may not really cause me, some of my families, I call me Lissa and I might not,
as I looked back on my life, you know, I'm 47 years. I don't know. And I was negative. I might. And I just think, uh, looking back, you know, I wasted time by being that, you know, that just sucks the life out of people when you're negative. So I don't want negativity. I try my best to keep it away from me now.
Yeah. And, but the thing is, is that we all that served you at a time. You needed to see that so that you can change it. And we don't know what we don't know. Like we were learning all the time. So what's important in that story is that you now see that and you now see that it is all perception and that we truly have control of each and everything that's happening to us due to our perception on how things are and being able to release things like we all have things I don't care who you are.
We all have things that are not so great happening in our lives. And we can see that with the state of the world that it is now. But the only thing that we have control of is how we perceive the things that are happening around us and what our control is is how are we going to change it? And how are we going to release the things that aren't serving us?
So through meditation, for me and through painting and your, your beautiful combination of painting and journaling, it is such a beautiful way to start releasing some of that stuff because it's, you don't want to keep that thing, those things in you, No, it eats at you when you do you don't and you don't need that. That's not good for you.
It's not good for anyone that you're around. So, and I found that out myself, you know because I'll be honest. I was a nurse for years. I'm still technically a nurse, but now I do my artwork. So, um, but when I was a nurse, a lot of times I saw a lot of stuff and I would find out by the time I got home,
it would be six, seven o'clock. I was physically exhausted. I was emotionally exhausted. A lot of times my husband would have separately fixed, and I would just eat supper. And then I would just sit in a chair and watch TV. And I was just thinking, please, don't talk to me. I don't want to, I can't take another thing in that's bad.
You know, when you think, think that way for your kids and for your spouse, that's bad. But a lot of times when I came home, that's how I felt. I just could not take another word being brought in and it wasn't that I was being hateful or mean or anything. It just, I think as artists, especially in being intuitive,
people, we absorb what goes on around us more than one pass. Yes. Yes. It's like we feel people's emotions. Yeah. Um, I know you can probably walk into a room and you can sense when someone's upset. You know, they don't have to say a word to you. It's as women. We have that intuition that I think God instills in us that we know that because he's given us that nurture,
you know, as, as mothers, you know, we were created to be mothers, most of us. And, and we just instilled that, you know, it's, it's, it's in us to be that way. And it's just hard. When you go all day with that being needed, needed, needed. There's nothing. It's like, you feel like you have nothing left for anybody else let on yourself.
I was just getting ready to say, including yourself. And the thing that we have to realize, and this is what I teach. A lot of my students is protecting that energy because we are very empathic. And especially if you can feel the energy and if you are very hyper-aware of what others, um, what's happening in other's lives, which I am,
I am, I very much care. Like I come into everything with an open heart and I lead by love. I just that's who I am, but I had to learn how to protect my energy. And that is one of the most crucial things to learn how to do because if we don't, we do drain ourselves and then not only do we suffer,
but the people who are around us suffer because we just can't take it anymore. Right. I mean, you've, you've seen that commercial, I'm sure of, uh, the guy and then he's coming home from work and he's got a parent and he's like, it just, I can't take it not another day, not another. And the parent just repeats and repeats it because we get to that point where we,
we cannot take, nobody has, we don't have any energy left for people to take it anymore. So then we're just running on steam. So we, it's very important for us to learn how to control, um, our energy, how to protect it so that we can still care and give love, but protect our energy and not take on other's energy.
And one of the ways that I do that is by meditation and then there's grounding. There are all sorts of different ways to do that. And that's what I teach my students. But, um, painting journaling, you know, having those power words that you can really rely on and clearing out your mind, that is the way to do it, to start protecting and to release some of that stuff that we hold on from others.
Yeah, it is. It really is. And there are some days that, you know, like yesterday, for example, I was busy. I didn't get to do it. And I just totally felt lost all day. I mean, I failed at a loss all day long because I hadn't done it. Um, I prefer to do mine in the morning now because it helps me to start my day off better.
And you know, that's usually what I tell people, if you can do how to do it in the morning, it's best to do that. Now a lot of times, I mean, I have to be honest, sometimes I maybe 10, 11 o'clock before I get to it. But when I first get up in the mornings, I try to listen to,
uh, some scriptures or something, something that's calming. I try to listen that something I'm going to get a lesson out of before I start my day. I've been trying to do that. And, and I, and it helps, you know, a lot of times routine, they say it takes 21 days to develop a routine just like when you're doing a diet plan or anything,
it's the same thing with this, you know, but you're, you're basically, uh, living on yourself and you know, however that is, you know? And it's helping me to build a relationship with, with my Lord. So I feel Wonderful about that because it's helped me to grow that way. It's so important to take that time. And it's really,
I know as women, sometimes we think doing something for ourselves is selfish, but it's actually in my eyes, very selfish for us not to do things for ourselves because I can't give to you. I can't get to my family. I can't get to anyone else unless I have the energy built up, fill that cup, right. Yes. But we typically look at it as a very selfish thing to do,
to take time for us. But that's one of my missions is to change that thought and have women realize that we've got to start putting ourselves first. We got to do things that are going to help us energetically and mentally clear because then we are so much better. We're much better people when we have that mental clarity and that energetic clarity, it, we can get so much more to the people around us.
Oh yeah, definitely. And it's good if you if you know, somebody that's had something traumatic happened to them, it will actually help them. I mean, you know, a lot of people don't think that it would, but if you just try it, it really does help. It really does help. I mean, there are people that have ADHD that has autism,
that they do are like different things, listen to music, meditate. And it helps. I mean, it really helps. It's actually scientifically proven that it helps because of the way that it affects the brain and the animal to release some of the things that like the clutter in our heads really truly helps us release and de-stress. And it's not just a,
Oh, maybe kind of thing. It really is scientifically proven with meditation, with prayers, with painting, journaling, whatever works for you. Right. Because that's the thing I try to teach that it's yeah. For me meditation and doing certain things work, but there are so many other ways to do it. And that's why I loved having you here today,
because I want people to see how many different ways and how we can be creative and think outside of the box and do what works for us, you know? Oh yeah. And try on different things because you know, some, something might not work for them and they might lack another way. It's like your favorite may time. That's how I give it.
It's my me time. So, and we, and we, everybody needs a treat. You gotta treat yourself just like when you go shopping and you treat yourself, it's pretty much the sung thing. Yeah, it is. But we need to think of it more as a daily practice that needs to happen, whether it is the painting or the journaling or the combination of them or the meditation daily,
we should be doing something for us first so that we can fill our cups back up each and every day. And we have an overflow to give to all the people that we truly love and care about. Oh yeah. Definitely. Definitely. Because if, if it's not a routine, if, once you get it to be a routine, you're like, I was yesterday,
you're like, oh, I've got to do it. You know, I didn't do that. And it, and you miss it. Do you miss it? Yeah. I mean, it's just like anything, whether you start a new routine with journaling and art or meditation or exercising or eating, right. You feel that your body is off when you haven't done something that actually fills you up so much and you do feel off and it's okay.
We all have those days. I have days where I'm like, Oh my gosh, the whole day went through and I didn't even meditate. I didn't even get a chance to sit and breathe. Um, so I think even taking just those little, teeny, tiny moments in our day, um, if we can't do a full 15, 20, sometimes I'll meditate for an hour in the morning.
Like, it just depends on what's going on, but it is definitely important to give grace to ourselves and just make sure that we make it a priority and not be hard on ourselves if we do miss it by chance, you know because we are busy. Oh yeah. Especially business owners. We are. Yeah. Cause they ever think we're trying to figure everything out.
Okay. This ain't working, I got to critique this and you got to keep on working until you get it. Right. Yeah. And most of us are a little bit of a perfectionist and that's hard to let go. And we, you know, and it's hard to delegate things to other people when you're used to doing it yourself too. Hmm.
Well, I'm a huge advocate and I teach my students like no perfectionism, like don't think twice about it. Cause we can always go back and change it literally. I mean, you can always go back and change it. Yeah. Yeah. Tweak it, tweak it. Tweak. Yeah. And that's okay, but it's action. You need action to move forward in business and then well in life,
but the perfectionism. And then what was the other thing you said? Sorry, I just went off the top. I say, I said, I think I was talking about, I said, as women, we try, we tried to get it. We don't want to turn loose of stuff. We want to do it ourselves. That's my problem.
Delegating. Yes. Yes. It took a while for me to realize too. Um, I was, and I, you know, with my salon and with the coaching, like the businesses, I tried to do everything myself and I saw that it actually is so much worse for you to do it yourself. And so many things slip through the cracks.
You've got to hire a team and start delegating the sooner, the better because then you're free to actually move into that space where you step into a new power in your, in yourself and you step into your higher self, which is very important for each and every one of us. So I think that this has been really wonderful. I think that,
you know, please like anyone who's watching give a comment below or send us DMS or messages, let us know what, what do you do? What do you think about the painting? What do you think about journaling? I love the quote and how you have it all together. And the other thing that you said that I really, we hadn't talked about before was writing and then painting over it.
Yes. That is a that's one of my favorites, that's honestly one of my favorite things I like to do. And I, I do that a lot with a lot, just my sale foot stairs, you know, I'll just, if I'm really stressed over something and I just have to put it down, I know that you know, when I get a little overflowed with the,
and I just have to say, that's it, I've just got to go upstairs and then I'll be okay. It might be 30 minutes and then I'm good. I'm ready to start again. But you know, it sometimes, you know, we just get frustrated, especially when we're trying to get something to work on the computer and we do not tech savvy,
you know when you're wanting to throw it out the window and things like that, I might not. I'm guilty of that. You know, I'm sure everybody else's, but you know, but most people, if you'll just try it, whether it's meditation or prayer or pining, if you'll just try, you'll find out that what's inside you,
that you don't even Ross this there. Yeah. That's, that's, that's, what's the fun, you know because there's someone in there that you, you haven't even released yet. Yes. Yeah. And I, it's your intuition, it's your higher self that's in there. And she's begging to get out and doing these practices help, you know,
little by little release her and show you who you truly are and who it is you truly want to be. Because as women entrepreneurs, especially if we have kids or even if we don't, I mean, it doesn't really matter. We're expected to be something to so many people around us. And if we release and start opening up that intuition and start opening up the communication between us and our higher self,
then all of a sudden like we've got this clarity of, this is who I want to be. And this is what makes me happy. And then our daily lives are magical, you know? Oh yeah, we still have stuff going on and stresses, but truly like that is the part that hugely changed. My life is being able to learn who I really want it to be instead of what society thought I should be or,
you know, everybody else thought I should be doing what I really wanted. And when I opened up that communication, it was, it was like this whole new life came in front of me and it made such a huge difference in how I perceived the other things around me. Yeah. So, yeah. And you know, when you think about words,
how powerful they are, you know, they can cut, you lock a knife or build you up either way. Um, it's just funny when you think about that. And I know myself, um, even when I, you know, I'm a nurse, I'm still a nurse, but I've always wanted to be in the helping people. That's,
that's always, what I wanted to do is to help people. So that's, that's actually how I come up with it is I wanted to help people and I wanted to help women to clear their minds. So they had a more positive day. So, and I do it through painting and in word and power words and scriptures and So important, whether it is the nursing or it's helping women this way
because we all need a community of women who are there for us. And that we can rely on to uplift us and teach us something that we didn't know. That's why we have a podcast. And that's why I love what I get to do. And interviewing such amazing women who have so much knowledge that it should be shared. It should be out there and more people should hear about it.
So I just appreciate you being on the show today. And I want you to tell me how we can find you so that everybody can go and follow you. And I will make that really easy so they can go on the blog and, you know, have all the links there. Yeah. I'm actually the graceful bar and it's on Facebook. It's at the graceful bone and altogether,
and then I have an Instagram as well and a Pinterest. I had Pinterest and Instagram, both, but I'm mainly on Facebook. Okay. Fabulous. And like I said, I will go ahead and share all those links so that they can find you really easy. And you also had a nice little, um, gift That you told. Yes. I forgot.
I completely forgot. That's okay. I have got a coloring book and it is of farm animals. It's like Kohler and Booker tablets. If you do paintings and it's 10 pages and it's got goats and this, the actual cover of it, that is actually, I know it's an old Recurly barn, but it's something really dear to my heart. It's my grandparents' farm.
So as a little girl, I applied in that barn media time. So my cousins and my brothers and my brother and all of us, we all did, but I actually, you can take this if you have like transfer Piper and you can transfer these pictures on there and Pinal to 'em to anything you can do would you can do canvas anything. So these are just a few of my designs and I've got them named I'm a little animal.
I like to have animals and make it fun. So, we have a good time in my group. So, and that's pretty much what I've got. I've got cows, chickens, goats, pigs, horses. So that's so sweet of you to make that. And I will have the, um, the link for you to download that because it's an easy way to just,
uh, kinda like those, the adult coloring books where you just mindlessly, that's another way of meditation. I did. Cause it hurts my wrist terribly. So yes. And you can go even like to office Depot or anywhere, and they'll actually make it into like your, a book form for you. So, um, and it's, it's affordable.
I think I've done this one for like $3 and 19 cents. Oh. So it would make a good gift if you know, a lady that you want to have something good for them, or even for your kids, if you're a busy mom and you don't want your kids in front of a video game, it would be a good thing. Even during that,
while you've done your meditation, or you say you did your journaling or your art journaling or your painting, I'm going to print it out for my nephew because he loves animals too. And while my sister in law is going to meditate, he can at least have some tapping into color cause he loves to color. And he's only three. He's about to turn four.
So, Oh yeah. That's exactly why I made it because I thought it would bring families together. Yeah. You know, that's, that's the biggest thing. Cause a lot of times right now, especially the way the world is right now, people are here and they're there and you know, everything's just in chaos. So I wanted to bring something that had a little piece to it and a little structure for everybody is a family.
Cause you know, we're revolving quarantined. We've had to become family life again. And you know, maybe it's something they can do together. I think it's beautiful. And I appreciate you.
