I truly enjoyed my sessions with Melissa. She helped me to look beyond the surface and delve deeper to see what was preventing me from moving forward.
I wanted to take this time to thank Mrs. Marshall for the services that were provided to me. I received assistance with my career development goals. I purchased the career development package which included two new professional resumes, career counseling and advising. As a result of these services I was able to obtain a new job as Program Director.
I was extremely pleased with the level of professionalism, knowledge base, and timely way in which things were handled. In addition, Mrs Marshall was very approachable and always available which made our encounters pleasant and productive. I strongly recommend these services and think others will be just as pleased. Thank you again.
I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation for the coaching service I received from Melissa Marshall. Before I met Melissa, I was not sure where I wanted to orient myself in my career. Although I knew I needed a change, I was a little disorganized in my thought process. Melissa took the time to ask not only the right questions, but also helped me dig a little deeper within myself to find my ways not just toward a career changed but in every aspect of my life.
Melissa was patient and helped me developed plans that would push me further to successful achieve my goals. Because she listened, she was able to recognize some of my hidden talents and has helped me develop them.
Furthermore, Melissa provided a relaxing atmosphere that made me comfortable enough to share my concerns, and where I needed to improve. It was an amazing experience. Thank you very much for putting me in the right path. ~~ Natacha Michel
I have been working with Ms. Marshall since 8/2012, and she has been stellar in everyway. Melissa Marshall has offered me immense support as my business has gone through its transition this year, and I am 10x the Chief Executive Officer that I was after meeting her! I tell her all the time that she will continue to be blessed for her caring, supportive and constructive guidance.
When I met Melissa, I had been working in IT for over 10 years, and I
was not thriving. Though I had recently started a job in management, I
didn't feel like I knew what I was doing, Because I lacked much needed
support, attention, and expectations from my boss, it was a drag to go
to work every day.
Over just a few weeks, I have developed a clear perspective on the
issues at work and how I contribute to them. My confidence level has
boosted and my anxiety has decreased, now that I have a targeted plan
for building my experience while figuring out creative ways to
incorporate my strengths and what I like to do.
Working with Melissa has been a positive experience. She is an
invaluable sounding board who is readily available by phone or email
to listen, help me identify the issues, and to establish practical
solutions that work for me.
Melissa assisted me with developing a new market of clients for my product. She addressed my insecurities in a very empathetic way and was insightful when I was unwilling to share specific information. I would definitely refer her to anyone who needs a warm yet firm coach.
Melissa has proven that she uses her experience as a business owner to help others time and time again. She has helped me develop an intense marketing plan for my business and supported me when I wasn't certain of which direction to turn. She is determined, nurturing and inspiring. I turn to her over and over when I lose my way, and she is always there with passion and excitement. I would recommend her to any novice or seasoned business owner.
