Hi, I'm Melanie! I built my business at my kitchen table, on the couch, and basically anywhere I had wifi. I had no background in social media, no network marketing experience, and no idea what I was doing.6 years later, I have created a substantial income for my family through blogging, Facebook, Instagram, and creating value to support others in reaching their health, fitness and business goals.My mission is to provide you content to help you so that you can reach success faster without having to reinvent the wheel!
It has been years since I start my business, and there have been so many ups and downs, but if I were to completely start over in 2020, you know there are things that I would just have to do differently. This work takes time and motivation so you need to know your "why". Without your "why", you can't reach your end goal. No one wants you fail, especially me so lets dive deep into this!

On the podcast this week, I am going to actually take you step by step on how to mentor the people under you, but also giving you the all the steps you need to take to start up your business successfully.
Why do we even let ourselves be stopped in the first place? Is it because you don't feel like it is you putting in the work, or is it because you let your own thoughts make you think that way? On this weeks episodes of Women Inspiring Women, I am talking to you about how you are your own person and you are the reason your business is successful. Don't give up on yourself, Be Proud!

Trust me, friends - I am not successful because I got in early or because I have a history in marketing (I don't)! I am just a mama from a small town in PA and I am successful because I put my blinders on and do the hard work. Today I want to share some of my top tips for growing your following and increasing engagement.
As a business owner, you should approach everyday as an opportunity to make a difference in someone's life. You get to show up and inspire people to make a change and do hard things. But first you need to look at your life and ask, if you don't have the courage to overcome your roadblocks, how can you expect people to do things you're not willing to do?
Have you forgotten how important follow-ups are to your business? Follow-ups offer the opportunity to connect with your clients on a personal level and allow people some time to think about pulling the trigger. Remind them that the door is always open!
