Me + You...
Big promises, bold claims; life changing glitter-covered-rainbows and dancing unicorns for all!
I am not promising any of that. When you work with me you get logical and strategic business advice with the sole purpose of putting into action the steps needed to move your business forward fast. Kind of boring if you are looking for glitter and unicorns. Very exciting if you are looking for increased profits and a better business.
Well that sounds like me!
Melanie Miller - Business Strategy and Coach
I work specifically with women in business who need the insight of an experienced business strategist and coach. I know women and I know business.
I have coached over 100 small business owners in the past six years. Prior to that I was a general manager for multi million dollar businesses that had lost direction. I know my stuff.
Business Coaches get a bad rap, there are far too many with zero real business experience and that makes people nervous (rightly so). That is why I never take on a client before having a 15 minute conversation about where you're at and where you want to be. I want you to feel comfortable with me before any money exchanges hands. I want to make sure I am going to be the best person for you too. If I am not I will tell you upfront.
Who I work with
Business owners looking for one on one guidance to create a strategy that suits their business and vision. You will need to have been in business for at least 12 months, however, it doesn't matter if you have not yet made a profit. If your business has stalled, you want to move in a different direction or you know you have missing pieces then let's talk.
What I am
A business strategist and coach with expertise in making women's businesses work! Someone you can trust and rely on to give you advice about moving your business forward in a direction that suits you. I take your vision (we will create one if you're not sure what that is) and where your business is today so I can fill in the blanks for you.
What I'm NOT
A life coach. During the coaching process you can expect a lot of business strategy, and that builds confidence and motivation in the women I work with. I am not a life coach. I can't help you work through non-business related issues and I am not a hand holder. I will help you uncover where you might be holding yourself back and I most certainly will be encouraging you along the way. This is about business change and growth; profit, marketing funnels, action plans and stuff like that.
I felt haphazard and out of control with no direction and no understanding of the core business. Now I feel completely in control, with a mapped out direction. We work in bite sized pieces that I can easily achieve and implement. I immediately felt comfortable with Melanie's energy and the way she delivers her expertise.
Melanie is a straight shooter, she doesn't waste time. I was skeptical about business coaches, but I know Melanie has been in business for many years, I have a lot of trust in her. She forced us to become more accountable to our goals.
Let's talk $$$ before we go any further
What does One on One Coaching cost?
3 Month Strategy + Implementation Program
*Includes 3 months access to Profit Lovers Members Club valued at $294
The 3 Month package starts with a 2 hour deep dive session where we figure out where you're at right now, the priorities you need to focus on and the basic framework of getting you to your destination. During the second and third month we will meet for 1 - 1.5 hours (Skype or Zoom) to discuss your progress and the next actions you need to take. I will check in once month also to make sure you're staying on track. We will keep a shared action list so you always know what you need to be working on and have a detailed list of our discussions.
After the initial 3 months you can choose to continue on with coaching at a cost of $750 (ex GST) per month for as long as you feel it is beneficial.
Investment - $2497 (ex GST) or $897 (ex GST) per month
Before engaging Melanie I was feeling positive but a little overwhelmed about decisions and directions etc.
Now I feel so much more confident and in control and the future looks bright and clear. I feel so much more prepared to take our business to the next level
Melanie was so great at reinforcing ''simple'' in terms of promo and marketing and that has really stuck with me. And having a sounding board, someone I could quickly run something by was such a welcome relief.
To anyone who was thinking of working with Melanie I would say do it now ! She is amazing ! Her knowledge and insights are incredibly valuable. I love her honesty and how she just doesn't beat around the bush at all. Working with Melanie has been one of the best business decisions we ever made, and I have loved every minute of working with her and will definitely continue to work with her as our business grows into the future.
I had been following Melanie for a few years and had joined a number of her online programs before engaging one on one coaching. Melanie ironed out issues with my cash flow, helped me better define my role within my business and mapped out an amazing automated marketing funnel. Melanie has a no-fuss approach and asked all the right questions to get me back in control Having Melanie to speak with every couple of weeks was like having a business partner that knew much more than me. I could bounce ideas off her and she was to give such great feedback and point out any limitations.

I now have a deeper understanding and control of my numbers and a marketing funnel that sends customers straight to my business. Working with Melanie has cut my stress in half and given me a real action plan to work with. I am already planning my next round of coaching and can't wait to get started again.
Ready to book your 15 minute chat?
We will talk a little about your business and where you want to go, this gives me a chance to make sure I am the right fit for you and you're the right fit for me.
Just a small selection of the amazing businesses I have worked with
Some are small and were not yet making a profit, others are big and just need to bring everything back under control. It doesn't matter how big your business is, what level of sales/income you make or the type of industry you're in. If you're ready for change then that is all you need!
