Testimonials

The way that she took it and helped me shift wording, make words pop and define what I was doing was incredible

I came to Melissa for help in writing a sales page for an upcoming workshop. I gave her my first draft and the way that she took it and helped me shift wording, make words pop and define what I was doing was incredible. She helped me in a way that accentuated my true voice while making my offering more legible to the reader. I will definitely work with her again!

She helped our leaders collaborate

Text from a thank you card after Melissa led a workshop on “The Magic of Collaboration” at Toastmaster’s District Leader’s Meeting.

Wow! Loved the audience participation. It was so great to hear people’s thoughts/words…really gives us insight into how people view these terms. Unity came up a lot—I hope people remember that word especially.

I really believe that you helped inspire our incoming leaders to collaborate. It’s so important for the success of our clubs!

Thank you for your energy and the emphasis on dancing. What a fun exercise to get us all loosened up.

You are amazing!! Thank you! Much love.

She helped me embrace and believe in myself just the way I am

I had an overwhelmingly positive experience working with Melissa! She helped guide me every step of the way. She also helped me embrace and believe in myself just the way I am. I needed that kind of support in order to grow and to write! One of the articles she edited was recently published in a large publication! I’m looking forward to continuing to work with her.

She embodies the word: life coach

I knew if anyone could help coach me on my current path, Melissa was the one to do it. I reached out and we set up a coaching call.

She listened to me and then gave constructive advice that has been priceless to me! I appreciate people who are gentle, but also help push you to your goal. Melissa is that person. She embodies the word: life coach. I cannot say enough great things about my experience with her, and it will NOT be my last.

I only have great things to say about Melissa and all the work we have done together.

The two of us were introduced, randomly, through multiple SEO projects about a year ago. Nowadays, we speak and collaborate quite often with clients belonging to both of us in SEO, Content Marketing, Web Development, etc. Anytime I have needed help, advice, or an introduction Melissa is the quickest to lend a helping hand. I am proud to know and work with her, which I plan to do for many more years to come!

She sparked a creative fire in me I didn’t even know I had

I’ve never been much of a writer, but I met Melissa Drake about a year ago and she sparked a creative fire in me I didn’t even know I had. She helped me with the process of writing, editing and collaborating on personal letters as well and helped me get published and promote my business at the same time. The writing process was unbelievably therapeutic for me and helped me express feelings I never knew I could share. I highly recommend working with her!

After decades of living in fear and silence, Melissa encouraged me to embrace my truth and tell my story.

She is truly invested in my success, both professionally and personally, and I’m a better person because of her example. Thank you, Melissa, for doing your work! ~ R. Jade McAuliffe

Melissa has proven herself to be an insightful editor with a nuanced understanding of pacing, phrasing and structure.

I recently worked with Melissa to have an article edited before publication. When I received the edit, my initial reaction was resistance to her recommended changes.

However, when I took a closer look at the changes on a case by case basis, I found myself agreeing with every edit she recommended.

Melissa has proven herself to be an insightful editor with a nuanced understanding of pacing, phrasing and structure.

I’m happy to have worked with her and would recommend her editing services to anyone looking for help with their material pre-publication.

Thank you Melissa!!

Melissa is the kind of professional who brings her whole being to the table.

When I think of Melissa the first words that come to mind are authentic passion. Melissa is the kind of professional who brings her whole being to the table. Her partnership goes so much deeper than the status quo of transactional services, rather, Melissa brings legitimate heart to the client experience. She not only delivers incredibly high-quality services but transforms those that she works with by breathing life into their projects and instilling confidence that they can go further. The combination of quality and confidence is priceless and truly exponential in terms of value. I trust Melissa to steward all of the coaches that work on my platform and guide them as budding journalists, influencers, and tastemakers. I am consistently delighted to witness transformation after transformation and to not only watch the quality of offerings produced on our platform exceed expectations but see these young coaches go on to be published in larger subsidiaries! In addition to editing and coaching, Melissa has created fantastic educational content for our organization that will serve as the bedrock of our automated course offerings. We love her and are so grateful to have collided with such a pro!

I’ve had the privilege to be a recipient of the famous “Red Pen Treatment.” Melissa is spot on with her editing and added commentary.

I’ve had the privilege to be a recipient of the famous “Red Pen Treatment.” Melissa is spot on with her editing and added commentary. I’ve had her edit a few pieces of my work and each time, I learn something new. Melissa’s notes are easy to read and her responses and feedback are positive and educational. By the way, when did the grammar police decide to change from two spaces to one after a period? Don’t they know how hard it is for us 40 somethings to change

I highly recommend Melissa’s services for all those seeking guidance and ready for moving forward past trauma and grief.

Melissa is a true example of one who lives by her heart. Her compassion, care, and empathy for others shines through during her catalyst sessions, and there wasn’t a moment where I didn’t feel seen or heard. I felt supported and guided throughout every interaction. I admire how Melissa isn’t afraid to “tell you like it is” either. She may not always tell you “what you want to hear”, but she surely tells you what you NEED to hear now to expedite your healing, growth, and catalyst for change! I highly recommend Melissa’s services for all those seeking guidance and ready for moving forward past trauma and grief.
