When I saw the Facebook post about someone that started a gym out of their garage, and were still in operation over a year and a half later, I had to interview them. Turns out, Melissa did not start it out of her garage, and it wasn’t her first business, and I was in for a wonderful conversation about confidence, determination, and a woman that loves proving the doubters wrong.
Starting as a server, Melissa learned to approach all customers as potential future clients. Learning early on from her mother that she can do anything she sets her mind to, and believing it, gave her the mindset that all clients were her clients, it would just be a matter of time.
Her focus to treat all people well has allowed her to be successful in a number of different businesses, from owning a coffee shop to a property management company and beyond. She sees change as the spice of life and listening to her positive energy as she talks makes you want to believe the same.
Ultimately, Melissa’s confidence that she will make it through with hard work and determination seem to inform everything she does. Which is good, because that confidence is the very thing her clients are looking for, and the very type of people she surrounds herself with in all of her endeavors.
