Hello, I’m Melanie!
I’m a business consultant, coach, and marketing strategist helping entrepreneurs, SMBs, and distribution leaders optimize focus, plan effective marketing growth strategies, create the best client experience, and incorporate the right technology to improve efficiency. My passion lies in helping entrepreneurs grow and scale thriving, sustainable businesses…modernizing the way they market their business and brand to maximize their bottom line.
My entire career has been about connecting, collaborating and building relationships. I worked in the financial services industry for over twenty years as a marketing executive and business consultant. I have had the privilege to act as a strategic partner for entrepreneurs, small businesses, and non-profits. I took great joy in being the facilitator to help them accomplish goals, increase productivity, and execute results. I have been an entrepreneur since 2006 and understand first-hand the ebbs and flows of entrepreneurial life. I am sympathetic to the need of mass exposure on a tight budget, building a client base with little-to-no resources, and being the jack of all trades to make your business run…head of sales, marketing, customer service and accounting. I love working with other entrepreneurs and small business owners to devise innovative ways to expand their market reach, build their client base, automate their marketing efforts to increase efficiency, and ultimately catapult their business growth.
I wanted to become a professional certified coach to elevate my services and incorporate sound coaching principals with my business and marketing consulting expertise. Coaching is a natural addition to the solutions I provide my clients as it aligns my personal attributes, business skills, marketing expertise, and passion for collaboration. I am a member of both the International Association of Coaching (IAC) and the International Coach Federation (ICF). Both organizations are leading authorities in coaching certification and mastery and dedicated to upholding high standards, ethical practice, and coaching excellence within the industry. I gained my coaching certification from the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts (SWIHA). SWIHA is an award-winning, nationally accredited college that has a reputation for being the best holistic college in the U.S.
When I am not MELTing, you will find me advocating the Eight Dimensions of Wellness, part of my wellness community Live Well Be Well, practicing yoga, reading words that move my soul, putting words to my thoughts and feelings, exploring other places and cultures, and spending quality time with my family and my wonderful circle of friends.
I am also a self-proclaimed coffee house snob and love to make local, independent, cool and eclectic coffee spots the environment I and my clients enjoy MELTing. I would love to schedule a virtual coffee chat to explore synergies.
