Mental Health Awareness Tour for Women, Crazy Like A Fox will Make its First Stop
in Atlanta on the 4-City Tour this Spring/Summer  
Baltimore, MD – May 6, 2019, – Last month, Life Transition Coach, Speaker, Author Melony Hill made the announcement that she was embarking on a 4-City Tour titled “Crazy Like A Fox” Tour, which is also being Co-Hosted by SwagHer Magazine which is an empowerment & lifestyle publication for the progressive woman. This month, as May is Mental Health Awareness Month, there are new developments with the Tour and the individuals who will be featured as panelists. The tour will make its debut in Atlanta, GA on May 25th, then head to Charlotte, NC on June 9th, travel North to Philadelphia July 14th, with its final stop being held on Baltimore, MD where Melony resides. There will be over 20 speakers which include Mental Health experts, Survivors, Entrepreneurs, Life Coaches & more. There will be panel discussions, a writing workshop and fellowship with like-minded women. The layout of the panels and writing workshop are listed below:
PANEL DISCUSSIONS
  • Hurt People Heal People: A candid, open discussion with trauma survivors who turned their pain into healing for themselves and others
  • Fun? I’m Just Trying to Function: Women battling invisible illnesses discuss the pitfalls of not having a visible illness
  • Double Duty.  There’s Two Me’s: A frank discussion with women in positions of power who battle(d) low self-esteem while making power moves
  • It’s All Relative: A candid conversation about how family and our home environments affect our mental health
WRITING WORKSHOP
Writing For My Sanity Workshop: Stronger Than My Struggles Founder, Coach Melony Hill, will discuss how writing and telling her story has changed her life and lead the group in a few healing writing exercises
When asked about the 4-City Tour and her feelings on what women will obtain by attending, Melony states “We have taken great care to curate a safe space for Black women to come together to talk mental health. More importantly, how our mental health affects our sense of self-worth, relationships and every other aspect of our lives. The conversations held will pale in comparison to the bonding, compassion & healing that will take place. Attendees will leave knowing that they aren’t alone in their daily struggles with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, trauma recovery, and other emotional and mental instability“.
The Crazy Like A Fox Tour is designed for the woman who was told she wouldn’t be able to do it, the one who was counted out constantly, the one who has endured tragedies/pitfalls and decided to not become what happened to them. That woman was Melony and she has since embarked on a mission to inspire in hopes to save women by sharing her testimony and knowledge. She strives to be the face of what is possible when you become in control of your life and career. Crazy Like A Fox Tour will be an afternoon of self-awareness in a safe place for Black Women to Learn, Heal & Thrive.

No surprise, women entrepreneurs have a harder time raising capital than their male counterparts. However, it is scaling companies — the 1% of companies raising venture capital to grow to be billion-dollar companies — that get all of the media attention. Far more entrepreneurs have more modest growth goals. These companies are more likely to seek loans.

Whether debt or equity, women-owned businesses use fewer types of financing options than their male counterparts, according to the 2016 Small Business Credit Survey: Report on Women-Owned Firms. Even when they are a low credit risk, they are less likely to get approved for a loan: 68% compared to 78% for their male counterparts.
