Most women in business have huge potential for their companies.

The fastest path through stress and overwhelm, and to experience true profit and freedom, is when you have a crystal clear Profit Priority Plan, designed to create huge results fast for your unique business. In my talk I walk you through 5 Profit Priority Points including getting clear on, and connecting to, your goals, realistic time management, as well as create with you a concrete plan of action to success.

Melissa has been a successful entrepreneur since 2010. She has launched two successful businesses, doubled her monthly income, and created a true life by design, all while raising a six-year-old son. She has worked with hundreds of people helping them slash their stress while doubling their income, doubling their free time, and creating everything they want out of their business and their life.

THE LAST SEARS IN CHICAGO TO CLOSE. LIQUIDATION SALE TO BEGIN

Sears at Six Corners recently informed it's employees that they would be closing in the upcoming summer. Chicago as well as it's historic North Side shopping District Six Corners played a key part in fostering the growth of Sears since the company came to the city. The Six Corners store opened in 1938 and played host to incredible mass shopping events in the 40's. Although we wish things could have been different, we wish Sears and their leadership the best of luck and look forward to the potential of new development for this site.  Sears will be starting their liquidation sale April 27th.
