Creative, Driven, Intentional and Faith-Filled. All dynamic words deserving only to describe a dynamic woman. Hailing from a family of entrepreneurs, Melissa Magazine was destined to run her own and be her own. From a young age, Melissa’s family instilled in her the importance of strong work ethic, dedication, going for the gold, and having your own.
“I always wanted to build an empire”, says Melissa, and when you look at her resume of businesses she is well on her way. The list consists of Melissa Magazine LLC, Mannish Lingerie and Greetings, Me’Kish, Clara’s House and MelissaPaperie you can’t help but think, ‘Man, she makes entrepreneurship look easy!’ When I asked her just how she does it all she has a very simple yet incredibly insightful response. “Don’t try to do it all on your own and pray – a lot!” Melissa also stresses the importance of learning everything that pertains to your business as well not being afraid to share that information with others who may need it. You just never know what valuable contacts that you can make when sharing what you know.
