Miss Meaningful explores the ‘soul’ story behind all things meaningful,

How it began…

Meet Miss Meaningful

I’m Janine, aka Miss Meaningful, and I live by the motto one devoted person can initiate change, spending my time making a difference in my way.

I started blogging a decade ago to share meaningful stories from my travels. It’s been a fun way to meet many inspirational people who are making a meaningful difference.

As a learning designer, I have spent the last decade designing, developing and creating creative ‘experiential’ learning courses that engage and empower. 

As a creative writer, I enjoyed my time as a columnist for 3000Melbourne Magazine (2013-2016) where I shared meaningful Melbourne stories to inspire readers to explore and shop local.

Thank you for visiting.

All of these experiences have inspired me to share meaningful stories. Making a meaningful difference motivates me every day. With an ability to gain insight into the human element, join me on a journey discovering, and learning about, all things meaningful.

As part of my philosophy to ‘give back’, I follow the profit for purpose approach to business; distributing a portion of profits to various meaningful projects or charities that align with making a meaningful difference.

I enjoy exploring meaningful stories – from products to places and a diverse array of social enterprises from around the world.

I’m passionate about travel and connecting with different cultures. This has made me adaptable and resilient. It’s given me further cultural sensitivity and the ability to connect with people on all levels.
