If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” —African Proverb.


Imagine working with someone who can anticipate what you are going to need and save you from figuring out through trial and error?

What could be gained when not losing time and money to learn what someone else already knows? How much further you could go in a shorter period of time because you’re not doing it all yourself. What makes working with me different is I’m intimately a part of each half of the equation. Working with me is never a guessing game you’ll always what is next and ultimately have peace of mind.

MY AVOCADO STORY: One Seed Two Halves

I grew up, the middle child, of two parents who truly served and taught me “It is better to give than to receive”. I can remember vividly the first meal I “cooked” and served my father when I was five. It was an avocado sandwich (yes, I grew up in California). The joy I felt with his over exaggerated excitement was so powerful I knew at that moment I was called to a life of service by the time I was 10, I knew I wanted to be a secretary like my mother. My mother served as an administrative professional for over 40 years and was my role model of service, support, and leadership. By watching her I realized that support and assistants hold everything together and allows those we serve to reach their goals and dreams. Lifting off the weight so they can rise. Whether that’s an executive feeling the weight of overwhelm who needs assistance. Or the VA feeling the weight of not being sure how to build a successful practice.

It’s been said that if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. I help people go far. Together. It takes two halves to make a whole. I’m the seed that helps you grow from where you are to where you want to go. Because you can’t do it all yourself.


Wow! No wonder you started charging for the consult. I think it’s brilliant!  And now that I know even MORE about your process, I will start requiring it for the people who go through my upper level program.”

Physical Therapy Contractor

“Melissa’s ability to figure out what her clients need and then provide support in that area is amazing. As an assistant, she can zero in on how to help her clients in ways that leave them feeling as if a weight was lifted from their shoulders. As a matchmaker to V.A.’s and clients, she knows the exact questions to ask, and then precisely what to seek when pairing the two. This produces a symbiotic relationship between V.A. and client that allows both to feel as if they are fulfilling their personal missions. Anyone able to experience working with Melissa should feel lucky—she is truly gifted at her profession.”
