The Story of Melissa K. Jones
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. It is always an ongoing process, and I love learning how to help!!
Some of the most rewarding experiences of my life have included the growth and promotion of my team members and clients.
As a results-oriented, ambitious entrepreneur with over 17 years of experience (health insurance, real estate, retail) in leading teams to excel, I believe
My standards are high because of the privilege we have to lead and 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 member’s post.
These standards are a result of being blessed with amazing mentors and being surrounded by ambitious, confident, smart women.
Together we will create a legacy through leadership!
