The results that I have achieved since hiring Melissa have been that I’ve clarified the target audience for my client services business which has given us the clarity we needed to finish our beta launch, and for the product based business, we applied to and have been selected as semi-finalists for the Dartmouth DEN/DALI Lab The Pitch competition! What I like about working is Melissa is that she is non-judgmental, when I was struggling Melissa knew when to give me a kick in the pants to keep moving or an encouraging word to help me get out of my own way. I like the specificity of Melissa’s homework assignments. I’ve also benefited from our time together in that I’m more excited to reach out for help, engage experts to do what they love so I can do what I love. It feels good to have my two passion projects moving again after our work together. I had thousands of dollars that I hadn’t invoiced for and I finally realized I was harming my business and not doing my clients any favors by not being timely. I feel unstuck. I would recommend Melissa. I’d recommend Melissa to anyone who is trying to define a problem, their brand or how to put together a game plan to move forward on a project, goal or dream. The most important thing about partnering with Melissa is that she is smart, funny and doesn’t take any excuses. Melissa always spent more than our allotted time with me, I felt that she truly cared about what I was wrestling with. I love that she always had a suggestion for a resource or a clarifying homework assignment. Melissa is so committed to my business success that following our time together she connected me to another person with a passion in the same area, who takes time to do that? Exceptional people like Melissa.
Since working with Melissa I have gained self-confidence. She never judged my honest answers and she was sincere about trying to help me land a job. Today I can confidently say that Melissa saved me from self-doubt and fear. What I enjoyed most about Melissa was her reflective questions which required me to think deeper. In the past I lacked confidence during interviews, however during my last interview I felt prepared and able to tackle any question. I attribute my feeling prepared to the tailored interview questions she gave me as prework. Those 17 questions were relevant to what it takes to become the principal of a school. Lastly, it’s great to bounce ideas off of Melissa and I intend to remain in contact with Melissa on a regular basis because I can trust her and she has consistency provided me with suggestions without passing judgment.
The most important thing people should know about working with Melissa is that with her they will find an open forum to air their concerns and receive very clear guidance on how to prepare themselves with confidence – know that her method really works. Not only did I get the job, but I have much more awareness now of my strengths and areas of opportunity as well as how should I approach an interview process. Aside from the confidence boost that I got from working with her I found her interview questions to be extremely helpful because they not only encouraged me to address how I would do the job as to exceed the company’s expectations but she also asked me questions that more broadly addressed the expanded role of a CFO in today’s global economy – it was a great learning experience for me overall. I really enjoyed working with Melissa and will be grateful forever for our shared success.
I had not worked on a resume or thought about job searching in over 15 years so it was a pretty daunting experience to begin. The only hesitation I had was if I was ready to receive the services or if I should have done more work up front. I’m happy that I started when I did because otherwise, I wouldn’t have gotten this far on my own! My resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile are all updated and of much better quality than when I started! Through the process I also learned a lot of valuable information on how to find target companies, how to search for contacts, etc. All of these activities have given me much more confidence than when we began! What I liked most about working with Melissa was the accountability that came with the process. In a busy day and life, these things are easily put on the back burner and our weekly meetings held me accountable for getting my ‘homework’ done and being ready for the session. I wouldn’t have maintained the progress without these regular reviews. Since I have been out of the job search field for so many years, I have absolutely found all of the resources to be very helpful including her brand exercise which was also very good along with all her help with resources that are available online, particularly LinkedIn! Something that I think is important to know about working with Melissa is that you need to set enough time aside during these five weeks to do it justice otherwise you won’t receive the maximum benefits if you aren’t committed to putting in the necessary time.
