Introducing Guest Speaker : Melissa Browne
Melissa Browne; Accountant, Advisor, Author, Shoe Addict
Melissa’s mandate is: To inspire, empower and educate women to create successful, profitable businesses.
To change the lives of her clients, Melissa shows people that creating a profitable, successful business is accessible and exciting.
Melissa is often told she’s not the typical accountant. Perhaps because she’s more comfortable in floral jackets and four inch heels or maybe because she’s simply able to engage people in a way where they truly believe that creating a successful and profitable business is not only accessible to them but is also exciting.

As a result of Melissa’s decision to no longer have an average business, Melissa changed her business, systems and process and stopped charging by the hour, implemented strong values and purpose and essentially, fell in love with owning a business again. Join us as we find out how Melissa Made it Happen!

Hope this inspires you to join us on International Women’s Day, see you there.
