Ever wish you could be "Location Independent"? You'd have no
home base, traveling, balancing, running a company and managing
family and responsibilities on the road. Melissa Smith has created
that as her reality. Prior to her new career, she hadn't even
considered the thought.
A few years ago, she experienced the unexpected loss of her husband and was left in a fog for many months after. She decided to make the move back home to California from where she was in Georgia, to be surrounded by family and friends. Later, her daughter wanted to come back to her home in Georgia to graduate high school.
Melissa had landed a job she loved and she didn't want to leave it, but needed to make the choice for her daughter. Then the concept of going out on her own and working virtually was born. Something in her gut propelled her forward through the unknown.
Starting with an insatiable desire to learn. she built her empire. When looking at things today, she rarely finds herself without a coach or mentor and is involved in mastermind groups, speaking engagements, book groups, work summits, and many other event followings. Her recommendation is to "Let perfectionism go. It's impossible to get it exactly right the first time."
