The Story of Melissa K. Jones

Some of the most rewarding experiences of my life have included the growth and promotion of my team members and clients.

Anyone can be a “boss”, but it takes a lot of work through self-improvement, professional development, and real-life application to learn how to serve your team, peers, and clients well. To be honest, it is always an ongoing process, but I love it!!

My mission is to help you be the leader your team, peers, clients, and community need.

As a results-oriented, ambitious entrepreneur with over 17 years of experience (health insurance, real estate, retail) in leading teams to excel, I believe results trump intentions. This is supported by accountability and consistent communication.

My standards for business are high because of the responsibility we have to our team, clients, and industry. I believe in leading by example. I don’t ask something of someone I have not done nor will do myself.

For example, I share my monthly goals and results with Mastermind members. I show up daily in the Academy to lead conversations and comment on each person’s post. 

These standards are a result of being blessed with amazing mentors and being surrounded by ambitious, confident, smart women.

Together we will raise the standard!

I am an avid reader of business, leadership, performance, and sports psychology. I am inspired by greatness and enjoy figuring out how a best practice in one industry can be applied to another industry.
