Before I asked Melissa to coach me, I felt like my business had no clear direction and I wasn’t receiving the value nor contracts I needed as a writer. Since her mentorship, I have been featured on various widely-respected publications and have a successful, well-run business. I had the talent, but no momentum, and because of her I no longer have that problem. Thank you SO MUCH Melissa!

I can honestly say that your teaching was the 'it' factor that gave me the confidence to follow through with a dream I've had for so long. For the first time in many years, I feel equipped with such useful and applicable information, and it has genuinely helped me push past many of the negative thoughts and practices that have been holding me in fear of branching out after years of being a stay at home mom. I can't thank you enough for that. You are an incredibly talented and generous teacher & mentor, and I am so beyond grateful that our paths have crossed.

Melissa has been instrumental in not only growing my business professionally but personally as well. Her courses have given me confidence in my brand and abilities and allowed me to realize the full potential of the products I offer. Not only does she assist with all levels of growing your business but also the tricky parts like SEO, trademarks and related. I couldn’t have done any of what I’ve accomplished without her.

That would be me!  I'm Melissa, and I built a six-figure business from my kitchen counter with nothing but a laptop, a coffee machine, and a baby on my hip. 

These days that baby is a tornado of a toddler, my business is still highly profitable, and now I spend most of my time teaching other moms how to use their skills and passions to make money that can change their lives.

Listen, I've worked with a lot of moms trying to build businesses. Like, a lot a lot. They all need the same things: A roadmap, a toolkit, and two freaking minutes to drink their coffee in peace.

I can't help with the coffee thing, but I can help with the rest- and that's why I'm here! Because you deserve the life you want, and the business you're dreaming of. Time to go out there and get it, mama.
