Daily Inspiration: Meet Melissa Mahoney

Today we’d like to introduce you to Melissa Mahoney.

Hi Melissa, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
My life has been an interesting one so far. With a variety of jobs and gigs over the years, not to mention living in several states around the country, it certainly hasn’t been boring. I was born in New Hampshire, grew up in Rhode Island, and went to college in Massachusetts.

Eventually, I moved across the country to sunny SoCal where I started working in the entertainment industry, first on the set, then in the production office as an accountant. I’ve worked on a few Emmy-award-winning and high-profile shows.

The entertainment industry… well, let’s just say there’s nothing like it. It’s brought me to many places around the USA and I’ve worked on location in several states like Maryland and the Carolinas among others. It’s been a journey for sure!

But travel has always been my passion, along with writing and photography. Several years ago, I started my Worldly Roamer blog which eventually led to a regular writing gig with Only In Your State. If you haven’t been to the Only In Your State website yet, you’re missing out!

It’s a great way to discover unique areas and hidden gems around the USA. Beauty companies often reach out to me as well and I am currently creating content for one.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
What’s a smooth road? Obstacles always come up, whether it’s not getting a gig I thought for sure I would get or the occasional writer’s block.

As for writer’s block, it’s always best to step away for a bit, go do something else like exercise and come back to it with a clear head.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am known for my travel Instagram account and for my travel writing. My unique voice and honesty are other ways that set me apart.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
You can follow my Instagram account or head to my website (which is in need of some updates)

I am also available to hire for writing projects especially when it comes to travel.
