"Let me say, that as a creative professional who has a terrible time keeping my act together, relying on Mel to get it done is so comforting. No more stressing out about what I might be forgetting. Mel is meticulous. . .a hardcore organization warrior who won't let anything slip through the cracks. She asks the right questions, makes good decisions and uses clear, common-sense thinking. At the same time, her personality is kind, caring and witty. She's fun to work with and reassuring to have on your side. I feel very lucky to have found her!"
"I am a control freak- I'll admit it and that has made it very stressful and sometimes impossible for me to delegate the work that needs to be done for my photography business. About a year ago I met Melissa and I had a feeling that with her I could rest easy and know that she was taking good care of things. I was right. She handled my direct advertising and also did some blogging for me. Her creativity and writing skills really made my business look awesome. Melissa went above and beyond the call of duty and always had great ideas. Another great thing about Melissa is her trustworthiness. I had to give her the passwords to a few of my accounts and not once did I worry that she would take advantage of me. I really could go on and on. She's fast, efficient, smart, knowledgeable, creative and, on top of it all, she's a good person. A total package:) Feel free to contact me directly if you have specific questions about my experience. Melissa is the best of the best."
