Featured Interviews with Melanie
podcast with Elayne Fluker - How to stop hiding and learn to shine online and off
On this episode of the Support is Sexy podcast, Melanie shares her insider social media and productivity tips, and tells why you should think of your business as petite and powerful — but not small, why many women entrepreneurs struggle with stepping out front in their businesses (even though we want to!), and how she goes beyond simply teaching clients to post on social to helping them confidently shine on and offline.
On this episode you’ll learn:
How to stop hiding and step out front
How to build your know-like-and-trust factor
The importance of connections and collaborations
The value of turning down projects that don’t align with your brand
How to get over your blockage around pricing
Podcast with Sarah Swanton - The Happy Healthy Entrepreneur
"Do things before you think you're ready...none of us know how things are going to play out - none of us do. You don't know, until you do it"
What you’ll learn by listening to this episode:
How Melanie took a huge leap of faith by leaving the corporate world to explore working for herself, and how “let’s just see how this goes” has served her very well.
Having a 100% virtual online business, for her, was not what it was cracked up to be, and the realization of how much she enjoyed 1:1 interaction.
Being in a mastermind is one of the best business decisions she has ever made, and why.
How trusting her intuition in making business and marketing decisions has been really helpful in getting her to where she is today.
The importance of self-compassion, and stopping to celebrate those successes along the way.
Finally, we discuss the topic of social media and self-validation, and where our feelings of validation actually come from.

Podcast with Jo-ann Hamilton - Secret Birds
In this podcast Melanie shares her social media tips and advice with us. She discusses how and why social media is important when starting a business. Melanie was an early adopter of social media marketing in the UK and has worked on online campaigns with business owners and SME’s across a range of sectors. Melanie believes in using social media to make trusted connections. In her blog Melanie says, “It doesn’t take long to create an online presence or cost an extortionate amount of money to get going and you have the opportunity to reach far more people on your door step or globally online than if you were cold-calling, advertising or attending numerous networking meetings.”
