Director of Strategic Initiatives of the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth
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.
