Melisse Gelula, Co-Founder of Well + Good.


Today we sat down with Melisse Gelula, Co-Founder of Well + Good, the pioneering wellness media company and two-time Webby award winning site.


  • She immediately started crying. Just kidding. We tried really hard but she only admitted to waking up with a tear in her eye because her work is her mission. We think that’s pretty lucky.

  • She likes to think of us all as Godmothers of wellness. Zoe thinks this is gangster (in a mafia kind of way). Erica prefers to think of us all in sparkly dresses (in a fairy kind of way).

  • Melisse shares her start-small-but-think-big strategy. Guess it was a good strategy – they managed to turn a few thousand dollars and a newsletter into many millions, making them yet another example of work wives who are crushing it. We think that’s BAWSE.

  • With great power comes great responsibility. Post-acquisition, Well + Good will now reach 34 million viewers monthly. That’s some serious responsibility.
