Awesome Women: Melisa Caprio

Say ‘Hello’ to Melisa Caprio – the first-ever profile for Awesome Women Doing Awesome Things!

We met Melisa in August through the Jennifer Grace 8-week Book Proposal Accountability Course (Jaime is the editor) and knew immediately we were meeting an awesome woman who would be perfect for an AWDAT profile.

Postcards to the Universe

Melisa Caprio

So what makes this Fort Lauderdale-native so amazing?

Along with being an author and photographer, Melisa is the creator of Postcards to the Universe: A Global Movement for Manifestation.

Postcards is a vehicle for people worldwide to bring their dreams into reality through the simple yet magical process of their written words on postcards, which Melisa collects and photographs.

What kind of role does writing your wish on a postcard and mailing it to Melisa play in its manifestation? A big one! Just ask Grace, a Postcards participant whose desire, true romance, appeared in her life 8 months after mailing her postcard to Caprio.

And Grace’s real-life Prince Charming didn’t just fit one or two of the characteristics she longed for; he fit every single one – including the fact that he had 4 children, which gave Grace the family she’d always wanted.


Do you have unfulfilled wishes?

As 2014 draws to a close, now is the perfect time to make your desires known.

And Postcards to the Universe is an easy, fun way to do it. Plus, it’s free!

To submit your postcard, visit Caprio’s Postcards website here. Then, follow the site instructions to download, print and create your postcard.

Thanks, Melisa, for being our first-ever Awesome Woman! We know you are doing awesome things and we look forward to watching you grow!

Get up close and personal with Melisa below where she answers some AWDAT inquiries.

Melisa, we’d love to know..

1. What are your 3 favorite books?

My favorite fiction story is the Harry Potter series, anything magical attracts me. Isn’t that what the law of attraction is about, believing in the Universe’s magic? You cast your wish and the Universe delivers it. Louise Hay’s, You Can Heal Your Life has always been one of my favorites. Also The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. I go back to that book over and over as a reminder for myself.

2. What has been the biggest adversity in your life?  How did you triumph?

Allowing other people to have so much power and control over my life. I learned the hard way that people can really hurt and disappoint you. But a lot of it was because I gave myself over instead of being in my own power. I no longer live to please others, they can join me and we can co-create together.

3. Who are 3 awesome women to you?

Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson and Oprah Winfrey. I am inspired by their journeys and what they have created for themselves. I aspire to do the same with my own life. But also I have to say my mother; she is one of the strongest, most fearless women I know. She has created such amazing things for herself and her family. I wouldn’t know what to do without her.

Hi! My name is Jaime Pfeffer and I am the founder of Awesome Women Doing Awesome Things!

I am so grateful you’re here! Thank you for stopping by.

The idea for Awesome Women came to me in August 2014. I had just finished a weekly session in the Jennifer Grace Book Proposal Accountability Group (I serve as the editor of the class) and was thinking how fortunate I am to be surrounded by so many awesome women, especially those in the course. The women that enroll in this class are always amazing and I am continually dumbfounded by all they are doing. From books about living a better life to creating abundance in your life to healing from grief and loss, these women wear many hats and are actively pursuing their dreams and changing the lives of many.

I know how difficult it can be to go after your dreams. To wake up every day, meet closed doors and still try again. I also know how important it is to be connected and know that you are not alone.

While most people know about women who are changing the world and who’ve made it to the “big-time” – Oprah, Marianne Williamson and the like – I wanted to create a spot where women who are doing equally great things can be showcased, too. And Awesome Women was born.

I hope you enjoy your time here. If you see a profile that interests you, please share it with your friends.

Thank you!
