Here’s what former clients and partners have to say about Melinda’s work…

Melinda Emerson is an engaging and dynamic speaker who effectively uses humor and great stories to teach small business owners information critical to their success. We will have her back again.”

What makes Melinda Emerson unique is that she really does her research… Her material is lively yet focused with real substance that can help develop other businesses.”

Yvette Dukes

She delivers high energy, great food-for-thought and strong encouragement to some of our audience members to begin re-evaluating their business plan and focus it in a more strategic and profitable direction…”

Typically, private, 1-hour sessions with Melinda Emerson are a $5,000 investment. Because you’re committing to a full day’s work to improve and make a dedicated commitment to your business, the 6 hours of VIP coaching will not be the normal rate of $5,000 x 6 hours ($30,000). In fact, this VIP session won’t even cost $25,000 or $20,000.

However, because of the exclusivity of this program, there is still a significant investment required and an application process is necessary. If you’re ready to commit to the growth of your business, this is the wisest decision you can make. Over time, this investment will pay for itself — as long as you dedicate yourself to your business and take action with SmallBizLady’s advice.

Melinda has been a great source of information and support as I launched my business in 2009. A strong leader, Melinda helped me envision and set out on a path to business success. Her sound and practical advice is proving to be invaluable to me as a small business owner. I will continue to follow her lead as my business grows.”

Melinda takes her background in television and expands it to help small businesses create an effective social media presence. She is able to not only promote small businesses but help them transition from their “side gig” to a full fledged business. She is fun to work with and can create content in an instant!”

Melinda is an amazing person. She gets you to engage on why you do what you do. She really makes you think out of the box. My business has grown significantly having her as a guide. She is truly a blessing for anyone that plugs into her colorful approach to problem solving for a small business.”

Melinda F. Emerson is a marvel. In two hours, she re-motivated me and gave me the direction that I’ve needed. Of course after hearing Melinda speak I bought her book. Become your own Boss in 12 months has become my workbook. I’m making notes in the margins, I’ve checked off accomplishments and re-structured my thoughts and ideas. This reorganization has helped me to update my brochures and clarify my goals. All that and I’ve only completed 1 chapter!

I WISH I had known of Melinda and her work 12 months ago when I first began this trip; I can only imagine how much further along my business would be! I recommend Melinda and her work to those of you just about to start their own business, those in the process of launching, and anyone who’s on the brink and frustrated by delays.”
