"Time. I'm three or four nights a week. Different cities off the united states and there were times when i was so sick. I should not have gone to work but i did it anyway. Yeah that's that's rough so yeah just calls from like stress and anxiety. Somebody was stress of of the environment. I mean i truly loved what i was doing. I was very good at it. A lot of it was stress and there's an emotional components as as as well. I mean if you've got all day. Justice stress going on plus. You've got anxiety because ninety nine percent of the people have i._b._s. Or any type of digestive issue you have anxiety because they're worried about what's going on and the next bathroom my stomach gonna explode kind of thing but there's an underlying emotional connection as well as to why you have so much anxiety and why your stomach is upset near are like that so it's really about getting to the root of the problem and that can be the really challenging thanks for people because they don't wanna talk about it because because it's all about getting really vulnerable and digging deep into what ever it is could it's usually some type of trauma that we're covering up in some way and for some people it comes out as anxiety comes out as depression that comes out with digestive issues or we go to the other side where there is some type of addiction <hes> masking all of that <hes> yeah that does make sense for sure all right so next question question is based on the character michael and he's the one that built the town of the good place so if you could build the perfect town what would you build build and why oh my gosh well i would have an organic markets have been here or like they love organic markets and like being outside. I just imagined all of you like being friends and like living on like a com- a hippie commune or something hippie communist i would do that and you know we have grasping vive and we'd have free range chicken and turkey on all of that good stops stops and we would definitely have to be next to water her <hes> so bigger on the beach so yeah. Maybe a little beach community <hes> yeah something something to that effect you know so you went dancing creativity energy yeah so what was your reason. I'm i'm just curious. What was your reason to move vegas since it's not by the water and i wouldn't imagine it's very imagine it has a lot of farmers markets. I mean maybe it does i. I don't know i was surprised at just the unlike this little area the island event. I only four of them. Okay good good so that's that's. That's what a an finding that there are some things that i do mess in one of his because i literally lived across the street from a lake in analyst that that is true but i i like it. I chose it and who knows how long i want to stay here. You know the big plays anywhere but it's easy in an out of the airport lure literally. There's so many flights all over the world doc direct flights so there that was one part of it. I mean really four and a half hours to the coast okay. That's not you know <hes> without dealing with the constant traffic of living you know on the west coast and also the cost of living is fairly comparable to the mid west. Okay that's interesting so it was pretty eighth parallel decision in some regards okay yeah my aunt used to to live in arizona and are in phoenix super far away but i never got to go while she lived there but my parents did did and they said it was just like so beautiful in like really clean and just the weather so different from texas because texas feels like you're walking into asana when you walk outside in the summertime but <hes> i don't know they said it was like a really pretty city. I've been to las vegas one time but it was like you know to do like the typical las vegas stuff so i'm sure that there's other parts of it. That aren't so touristy. That are actually cool so that like you could actually we live in and out people that actually live here. Don't go to the strip. Yeah yeah a reason to go down there yeah so and i don't live anywhere near there so okay but <hes> i do have to check myself my light in las vegas. I'm sure there's a lot of cool like music. If you like music and probably a lot of good comedy and stuff there yeah. I haven't really checked out a lot of things <unk>. Just stay local and now the neighborhood and everything but i am besides just the regular shows and access to that stuff. That's off the strip. <hes> there's there is a fairly good music art scene yeah. I haven't really dive into it. I'm sure there's like <hes> i'm good like improv comedy and stuff like that. That's pretty cheap to go to to like most most cities like that have like improv comedy comedy clubs and all that cool stuff in waco where i live. We don't have anything like that. So i go to like dole hot yeah but anyways well the last question i'm going to ask you and i love asking this. I'm not sure if you watch many t._v. Tv show so you can answer with the movie if he want but if you can magically teleport yourself to live in any t._v. or movie worlds where would you live. Oh my gosh are a lot about like where you live. I now i know <hes> oh since you like nick water farmers market. I'm trying to think of like somewhere good. You know i i'm big grey's anatomy fan okay cool. I've only watched the first season one of rosen college. I never watched it again but everyone loves it yes so i love that but i also love to e._r. If you wanna go back a little when i was in grad school cool are professor on thursday nights would make sure that we would get out just so we would have enough time to get home to watch the show so yeah yeah. I never watched e._r. Either my mom used to watch it but i think i was too young. Probably you might have been to the way they film that <hes> was a it was really the the stepping stone for oliver shows after that yeah you and and everything so yeah i i watched house. Yes i really liked house yeah. I like that old saying and i'm trying to think of doctor shows that i like scrubs is pretty good stresses funny. Yeah <hes> what else is there. I don't know i can't think of any right now but i did. I did really like house until it got weird and he started started dating that that doctor the main doctor then. I was like not into it anymore so i gave up on that one but i do like him along i wa. I think he's funny that guy that plays him ever out his name now but anyway here's something hugh laurie. That's it yes yes yeah. He's really funny and he's like 'cause he's british in real life so he's doesn't sound anything like how he does on that show. It's really crazy so he was also on fun fun fact on one hundred one dominations yeah like not the animated one of course the real one. I'll see driver with like the i just remember him. He was like a driver of all the puppies that were in the back till i kerala deville. He was like her little driver. I think anyways. I remember that all right. I'll ask i'll ask one osc one more so this the last question this question are based on janet and janet's and it's really cool because she can teleport herself like if they say hey janet she just like appears and she's like hi. I'm janet. She's like a robot so anyways. That's why i asked the teleporting to t._v. Show world question and then she also can like upgrade people like oh. Do you want this bam and she gives it to them. So if you could upgrade one thing about your life or anything in your life what would it be upgrade. I would definitely want like a gorgeous house right up in each okay. I upgrade. Yes you know i just thought of like the most gorgeous house on the beach on t._v.

"Forking shirt okay. Hey melissa. How's it going good are you. I'm good thanks for thanks so much for joining joining me today. I appreciate you taking the time to record. I'm excited to be here awesome so tell everyone and me a little bit about you and what oh you do and where you're from just like a quick overview so i'm originally from the midwest but i recently relocated to las asparagus. Oh cool okay no fun. Yeah got health is my jam. I'm a holistic health coach. I work with women who have digestive issues who's i._b._s. Leaky got adrenal fatigue. <hes> generally irritable have some brain fog and just really low on energy and i help them restore their gut health and get their sassan energy for life back yeah. That's that's really awesome. Exa very good profession to be and i would think because everyone needs help with the everyone everyone has it seems. I don't have really stomach issues but i do. I told you before like acid reflux and stuff like that. I can get that sometimes sometimes and it is so uncomfortable and not fun and luckily i don't have any stomach issues so hopefully i never will but <hes>. I know that it can be really miserable. My brother has had a lot of stomach issues and anyways. It's not really because of what he eats because he eats really healthy. His was mostly caused from stress stress so anyways yeah. I know that a lot especially women can deal with that a lot so that's a that's awesome what you're doing for sure so so in your business. Are you doing like coaching or are you in like a multilevel marketing company at all all or is it. Just you on your own. I do coaching. Yes so right now. I am taking on one on private coaching clients. <hes> everything is really individualized ally against <hes> because no one person has the same yeah how we treat the i._b._s. Itself really has to be specific to who that person and <hes> i do intend to add in group coaching and i wanna start <hes> probably later this year. Do some workshops and get some retreat scheduled and things like that so that's all part of it for sure. That's really cool. So how long have you been in las vegas goose. Have you lived there for a while. <hes> i've been here for about a month. Oh okay. Where did you move there from minneapolis. Okay wow that's quite. That's quite a change in climate. I guess yeah it's it's a little warm here. Maybe not the best time to pick to come down here air but <hes> it's been great so far. I'm loving it. I'm enjoying it so okay well. That's that's really cool. I'm in texas so it's a bit more humid here but still really hot so yeah totally. That's why i never wear makeup in the day really and i go swimming a lot so it's so hot here but yeah you have to have to stay out of the heat as much as possible in this town or in this guy is eight so it's all about sunscreen and water yeah yeah for sure so <hes> like i was telling you a little bit before we're gonna talk mostly about like you and your personality what you like dislike and you know different things like that and i tell this on every episode but the good part is based is on the t._v. Show that good place starring ted danson and kristen bell and if you haven't watched the new shed because it's so funny you can watch the first season on netflix. They should really sponsor sponsor me at this point because i shout them out on every single episode but i think that the show is really really good. It's really funny and i think that gives you issues such a cool thing to like see what they say about the afterlife and stuff because it's about it's about like ted. Danson plays kind of his his name is michael so he plays like i would say the ark angel like in the bible but he he's the creator of the good place so it's just really cool and fun show definitely recommended but i base all of my questions off characters from that show so that's why i have you talked about yourself at first because eleanor more is kristen bell. She loves talking about herself like her. Favorite thing is herself and she really could care less about anyone else so the next the next set of questions is based on the character chidi who is a he's like he used to be <hes> ethics professor before he died and so and he has really hard time making a decision so on that note. Has there ever been a time where you were unable to decide on something important. Oh my gosh yes totally well. I'm sure you had to make a huge decision when you moved. So how long did that take you to choose where you wanted to move to. You know i actually i gave my sixty days notice and i really i didn't make a choice until about two weeks before doc. Oh wow the universe do the talking. Wow that's awesome so are you did you are. Are you married. Do you have any kids that came with you or i have a dog. Okay it's two and a half. She's a rescue pop. I totally believe and and rescue animals. Okay yeah me too. I have three dogs and two cats. I have a lot of animals but yes <hes> two. Two of the dogs are from the shelter and the cats are just like some someone was like. I have a bunch of cats here. Take one so but but the one chihuahua the diva dog. I like to call her she she <hes>. I paid one hundred dollars for her probably from like a backyard breeder when i couldn't the shelter wouldn't let me adopt opt because i didn't have. I didn't pay like pet insurance so yeah. It's crazy yeah but then after that they dropped that rule and so then i got two dogs from there there you go so yeah so anyways <hes> is there. Can you think of another specific time where it's been hard hard to design. Decide something like in your business. Yeah i think the point where i knew ooh that's because i was in corporate america for in the medical device healthcare industry for almost twenty years okay and i think it was really knowing i wanna that cycle had come to an end and will be willing to accept that and knowing that my true purpose my true passion was helping women who have shoes news so it was just really embracing that and you know sometimes the calling comes to you in in different ways and being willing to accept that can sometimes be a little bit challenging yeah yeah for sure. That's that's probably like the that's kind of what i did is. I worked worked in corporate not for as long as you did but i did corporate cells and i kind of like i graduated about ten years ago from college and i it just kind of like jumped around to all different types of jobs and i did like retail and that was like ten years so retail and then i my last job was in corporate sells like business to business sales and i just i just didn't like it so that's whenever i decided to just go into business for myself so yeah. I totally understand like it's it's hard. It's hard whenever you have. I feel like when you start your own business us or you want to start your business. We all just have like that thing. That's just like let's just quit and let's do it. You know there's no like inbetween for people that ah entre preneurs. I think we have like all of those same. We all have kind of the same mindset in a lot of things you know so totally just like okay. We're done with this. This were jumping to this exactly but it can be a good in a bad thing because if you're like me. It doesn't take me long to make a decision. I just have to regret it later the wrong one so i just i jump kind of too fast so i need to be more like chidi from the good places like i think through what i'm actually doing for just jumped through it all right so the next question. Let's see. I have a few different ones okay. Can you think of a time when you did something. You knew you could be considered ethically wrong but decided it was worth it. I mean i don't wanna get you into any trouble but worth it's i really think <hes> coming from the medical device industry and that spectrum you really do have to it's. It's very black and white. There's no gray so you have to be willing to if you know that it's wrong long you have to be willing to stand up and say no we can't do this and that can be very challenging and especially because of what i was doing and the people that i was working with you know i worked with physicians and nurses and c._e._o.'s and chairman of the board's towards and all and a lot of people in the c. suite arena and it really have to be willing to say and stand on your own shoe feeds and let them know that you know this is the way it needs to be done. We can't make a shortcut here yeah so i'm sure the backbone wrong and and and saying it even though it might ruffle some feathers you might not get the contract might not get the multi-million dollar deal. Whatever it is uh-huh is a stand on your own integrity no matter what yeah i'm sure that's really tough to especially in the medical field when so much money is involved and next dollar so yeah because ultimately for me it's about. Are we doing the right thing for for people. Are you going to help them. Is their life or is this going to cause more pain and agony for them. That's that's really the ultimate thing and the driving actor there. It's and that's a really big challenge because it is. It's all about the bottom line and it's all about r._o._i. Yeah it's that's how a a lot of businesses are but i feel like the medical especially. The medical field can be my mom. She works in the medical field. She's a therapist but she always wants to work with patients longer and there's a lot of times when the insurance will just cut her off so there's things like that to where it i mean it happens in so many so many different areas of the medical profession but i don't know it's really sad and the united states really needs to get their medical shit together. Healthcare industry in the united states is just yeah. It's really bad state and you. I wanna get political or it's okay. It's right now of where it's at. It's not gonna get any better anytime so yeah and i don't have the answers. I don't know what the answers are but <hes> just the political climate. That's going on right now. Oh and the situation that just is still unresolved out refugees and all of that is it just it's just really sad has the we can do better. We better yeah we can. We definitely can <hes> but yeah i don't. I don't mind <hes> political opinion or whatever i'm actually. I'm marrying a l._b._j. Shirt because it was the first from texas to be president so yeah so he might not have been the best like morally early but he was he was a pretty cool dude in my opinion so i know none of them have been perfect. Yeah yeah well he. He did pass civil rights law aw with people on his back not too so that was pretty cool okay so we're going to move on to the next question and dan the next questions based on if you ever watched the show you have to tell me what you think but the next section of questions is based on the character jason who's like doc he he gets to the good place and he it's like totally wrong. He's not supposed to be there just like eleanor the main character but when he first gets there he's uh he is like a monk so he or they think that he's a monk and so he has to be really quiet and he can't talk at all because he says he's taking a vow of silence when in actuality he's from like fort lauderdale florida and he was like really stupid. He ended up dying in in a in a safe because he thought he was going to steal the money out of it because he's really he's really dumb but it's really funny so okay so in that on that note it. Has there ever been a time when you wanted to speak up but you were unable to all like us. Yes all all the time when i was in my corporate career and doing all that that was when i was suffering the most with my own digestive issues news on my own anxiety and one of the things was nobody knew nobody knew and you know i traveled all the time..
"melissa smith" Discussed on On the Schmooze with Robbie Samuels
"So some people ask me all the time, do you have a virtual assistant like they just wanna check. Right. I'm like I have a lot. But the reason and like my, my reasoning for hiring another one or when I knowing hire another one is when I cannot respond to my emails fast enough. There's nothing more important for me than to be able to respond to emails and to be able to get on a call quickly, the emails and the calls are like when people call in looking for a plumber right, like the sink overflowing. We need someone like right now. That's how people look at my services like we needed someone yesterday. And if they can't go hold me they'll go onto the next person, and the other side of that is just what I said when those emails, come in from the people that I follow or the people that I know I read them immediately everyone else, do this go into the folder, and I'll read them, like, whenever if it's good content. It'll be good at your from now, there's so many good things in there. I'm trying to think of like which ones they even want to tease out. But one of the things is that it's there's a there's a habit. And there's also some system. So I guess I mean even say there's a philosophy philosophy is keep it simple. What can you in five minutes, and so many people think of networking as sort of a external separate task job, and you're like, no, no, no? It's something. I'd do for five minutes. And but it but I think you're also made a note about adding thinks your calendar. You know. So I, I used to go to a zillion events all the time my local, you know, city, and there was came a point when I couldn't keep going to them at that pace. But I would often just keep them on my calendar so that I could write a note like a half hour before I would text or mass facing message, the organizer till I wish them, well, or a half an hour after I would ask them, how did it go? And like that little touch point takes no effort really for me as long as I, you know, pay attention to my calendar. But it almost as if I was there because people assume that I. I was busy doing some other sixteen events. But truth is I had a family, and I was. And so, you know, the like, but you want to still be present. So like, that's the way it'd be present, you know, someone launching a book, but then you were talking about sort of the higher touch points. You know, so I know your book was just released. And so I'm like, having on my to do list to write you another review for this new version of your book, and those are the kind of higher touch points that make a difference. And I know that as a content producer, but I think we sometimes forget like the twenty minutes, it will take me to brightening, thoughtful, having read the book, and like it's really been great like, okay? Well, now that I've done that look how people know that I thought it was great in a way that will benefit you and reading review mentioning it talking about it. Those are the kinds of things. I just feel like people somehow missed the point of that. And they make it extra hard and you're like, no, no. This is really easy. The power of a comment or share or alike. And this social media world that we're in is huge. Huge reach sharing someone's article commenting I mean it's, it's huge it. You just can't. You just can't over estimate. What that means to somebody because everyone that puts out content, like right? No matter how far they get if they say go down to the bottom depths, their, their biggest fear is that they're going to put something out. And not that someone is going to challenge him on it, but that no one is going to read it. And but then there are the times where you can say, you can read it, and I'm not just saying, like do it like, you know, not care. But I go through. And if it speaks to me, I'm like, wow. Like I really love this line. I really liked this thing or. Oh, I shared it with my friend, and it just goes a long way. Everyone wants to make a difference in, in some way, shape or form. And that's how you do it. You. Acknowledge people, and sometimes it's not even that, like, if I were to go to something and someone there was, like, I don't know network, being a specialist or something. And they put out something that I thought was a really fun idea or something that I had never heard of before automatically you'd be the first person I would send it to I would say Robbie. Did you have you done this? Do you do this? Did I miss this? You know that's what I would say, in it lets people know that you're thinking about them in at the at the end of the day, who doesn't want to be thought of. Well, okay, so couple of things with this one is it's helpful therefore to be known for something. So. I think if you want people to do this for you be known for something. Because if you do too many things and no one knows who you serve, or what your niche is. Or who you are? What your skill sets are? Then they won't have that moment of like, oh, wait a half the tell Robbie about this because you're like if I meet anyone doing anything cool about networking. I'm clearly on go to Robbie. I had I had to really seeing springs is linked in so linked to and is one of these places where you often get these, like Kana spammy messages. But I got this really cool message from someone who like summarize in a sentence, what I'm about. And the us in mail, they sent me over quest. They actually sent me an inmate. I and I was like, wow. You could have just sent me a note with you. You know it was like clearly an effort. And so I sent back my like canned hot here about me, but why they were like, oh, I listened to my friend on your show. And by the way, I think you'd really like this book since you're so into this, this and this. And I never heard of the book, so I then go check out the book, Mike. Oh, it's really cool. Book. I write back and Mike. Hey, that extra minds. You this other book that I read, I was reading on a plane laughing out loud about how much I loved it much this grain of my seat mate. So I didn't know she did that. She wrote back LL. I've done that too. I'm going to totally check it out. Now I in I now feel so bonded to this person and she's not asking anything of me. I mean I liked her so much I want to get him to call with her. I leave in which is about. But clearly, she's like in my world she gets it. I one of my Email people, I don't want to call them subscribers. But one of the people may MLS took out one of my takeaways like you know, I always try to say something pithy and fun and challenging, and she took it, and she quoted it on Lincoln with a little quote, image that she had found that was relevant to it, and tagged me. That was like the sweetest gift ever to have something go from like an Email. I mean I did it was like it's one thing for someone to share like by literally hitting the share button. But she had to go through a few steps and a week later. A bunch of people seeing it, I then screen shot at through it on my Facebook, and it was like if you want to impress you will do something like this, like I'm still thinking about it a week later. So it's pretty cool like the simple little things that you're doing. And I think you've had one of the best answers, by the way of, like, how do you nurture your your connections? So many people are like I post things on Email, and I post things on Facebook. Well, here's the thing. Here's the thing that I need to get specific about. So the best way is to do it in their in their own communication, language. Right. So my whole matching is based on communication strategy and joke client fit. So if I want to get a hold of you like the first thing I'm gonna do is, I'm gonna message on Facebook like I have not gonna I'm sorry if I just gave that away. I want to respond to emails, but, like for me like you are a conversation starter. You are a visual storyteller on Facebook. So I know that's a go to point for you. Now for someone else it might be Twitter for someone else. It might be text. I have someone that I constantly stay in touch with on Marco Polo advertising. Like every time I go to the airport. It's like a known thing. I practice my Marco Polo with Mike Marco Polo front. So it's really about finding whatever is their style, because you also don't want to them like someone who never checks, E mail, who's, like, please I hiring someone to check my Email. Please don't go there. You know. And then they finally go there, inside three months later, and then they feel bad, and they don't really know what to do with that. So the undo I respond or not respond. But if you do it in bear, you know, the manner the medium their tone, their verbiage, then it makes it easy to have that connection. And for them to also reach back out to you. Yeah. I mean, thinking that, that also linked in, because a lot of us do use Lincoln for this kind of thing. But if, if you don't see people posting, then what's the point of messaging them because they may remember their logging? I mean, you know, people just people are on it, but not like you know, lots of people and then there are those of us that regularly posts in regularly do updates and I mean, like, like I love it. You're saying, like, do it in bear language, and on the medium, which they're on. I'm known to go on Facebook now. And again, it's true. Every now and again, so this has been fantastic. And you, you give us a lot to think about. I I love just like you know, clearly if you're matchmaking year, get it cer- building connections. And remembering a lot of details about people, but I think you're also just really get helping people repackage themselves, which is part of it like people don't think always, then they're not good judges of their best qualities, and you're able to kind of pull it out of people, and then make them think. Wow. You know, I'm actually I'm great to work for no decisive. Not to mandate. I like that. Trill. I you know, I am not someone who works, well as an assistant for creatives because I'm super super structured, I'm like, let's get down to business. Don't talk to me till after two o'clock because at two o'clock, I'll know if anything else is going to happen in the day, but by by two o'clock everything that needed to get done. Got that. And.

Please join me in welcoming, Melissa Smith. Thank you Robbie. I'm so excited to be here. Almost I waiting to have you on, and I'm thrilled. You're actually joining me from your home in Athens, and for those listing she means Georgia not Greece. I double check because she is located independent. Is awesome. And you know, you know, this is a show about leadership and building strong networks. So tell me what does leadership means to you? And when did you realize you had the skills to lead? So I'm an answer that it in reverse order because I just this past October. Actor twenty eighteen did I realize I had the ability to be a CEO, and I've never really referred to myself that way like consciously or really like own that myself as a business owner, but not a CEO because CEO really Jesmond to me that you have a team, you have a team working for you. You have people reporting to you people that you really responsible for and I read a book called the CEO next door. And when I, I was reading it thought, how is this gonna apply to me, like these are about fortune five hundred which one hundred companies he owes they're like millions of dollars billions of? What do I have in common with these people? And by the end of the book I thought, wow, this is I can do this. I am the CEO next door and would it boil down to was that I know how to make good decisions. But most importantly, I know how to hire the right people. Such a key piece right there. I mean and you really do know the skill because you're helping all of us do it. So how would you actually define leadership? And so I went to find leadership as knowing your strengths and weaknesses. And then making sure you have the ability to have people pull them out of you while you're doing the same for them. So the, the thing that I tell my team is look, I know that I'm right. Until you tell me I'm wrong. So when I have something in my head that I am certain of I am very convicting, when I speak, but that doesn't mean that I'm forever right? It's typically not possible. So I need to give them permission to say now, I don't think so. Or like have you thought about this? I pushed back like make me prove it. True. But at the same time, there are decisions that my sole decision is to. Say this is your call like this is your area of expertise, make the call make the move like do what you have to do an I will back you up. And if it doesn't work than it's on me. And if it works, then great, I hired the right person for the job. Absolutely. It's, it's so clear that team building both to shore up against your weaknesses, and how people who will test, your strengths to be sure that you really are headed in the right direction. It's so important, and so many people to emphasize that when it talk about leadership because they are nervous sometimes about giving away that power. But you it sounds like you're actually more powerful or having built a strong teams that is kind of what I'm hearing. Absolutely. I was so before I was so noticed so aware of my, my weaknesses. Oh, I can't do this because I'm not this person or I can't do this, because that's not my skill set. But a really, really good at this. And, you know, not really seeing those things as part of a row. Round hole of leadership and completing the circle there is no one perfect person. There is no one who can do it all themselves. So the thought of being a leader who's doing it all yourself without the outside input of others is just not possible, nor is it possible to expand yourself as later in continue to grow without the outside influence. I can tell you since I started this association, very recently so I've gone back, and I'm like, wow, I had a real slap in the face today. It in a good way it was. But I mean it was as powerful as a slap in the face. And it was, you know, them poking at me, and I have my I know I know that you're right? You're right. I know that you're right. And they kept on poking me, but I couldn't find I couldn't find that place to really make that switch without having them nudge, me first. And then another person that I follow. Oh, had sent out this E mail, and I wrote her back. And I said, yeah. But what do you do in this situation? I'm really struggling here. I said, can you might about that? And she's like, sure. So the next week she was her newsletter which was directed to me. And while I was, it was a total wakeup call and I went back to my team. And I said, okay. That was I get it. I get it. I get it. I get it. I will not do it anymore. I got it. But sometimes you just need a different perspective because we're we're all in the same field, but having someone come outside maybe using a different metaphor, a different as scenario dish differently. I have to tease out something you did there, so casually. You you're on several I imagine dozen Email lists as we all right more than we here, it account. And there's one that clearly has good information because you open it, and you read it and you thought, yes, but I have. Further questions you actually hit reply knowing as most of us forget, that there is a human being on the other end of that Email, and that human being brought you back and said, sure, I'll do that. And then a week later, you got content that was precisely what you needed for you and your team to move past this, and to keep growing. And that in itself is like a skill set and knowing that the resources relationships are out there, and you just determine reach out and tap them like that mean have you ever hit reply before tune emails at a practice of yours? Or is moment you do it, right? All the time all the time. In fact, I just emailed, Stephen press failed, again, the other day to tell him that my third book was officially out, and he was bonded. Yeah. So that's what you do. Because he's right. Anyone who writes, or anyone who puts content out in the world wants to know that someone is consuming it. No-one no-one, no-one puts out. Content and does not care if it's being consumed, right? I mean, even even people who see them their books being sold, and like bestseller lists and all of those things a personal message like that, like, is what they'll remember because it's feels much more significant than even seeing like their best ranking numbers and all that stuff. Yeah. I mean, sometimes depending on the person, you might have to get a little creative, and they might not be able to reply for a long time. But I, I can't remember ever sending out a message in having no one reply ever. But you gotta get creative. You gotta have a good subject line to let them know that, you know, you actually read their books. So a lot of times I will take something that is not maybe a headline from their book, but definitely was, like, you know, I read that book because I would not put this and I put that in the subject line. And but it's like I know about, you know, blah, blah, blah, and then they have to open it. Because they can only open it. If you know then they'll know what I know. Right. Because he put an open loop. Yeah. You, you put an open loop, and it makes their, their brain, go little, like, what let need to know. All right. Where I want to get back to. But before we do because that's good. I just couldn't let that go by Melissa. You're saying that you just like a few months ago, sort of realized that you have to be a leader. But I think it's actually much alert than that. So, you know, because you step forward in so many ways, like I've known you for a few years now you've not like you're not hiding yourself from the world, you're sharing who you are. And what you have to offer early on. What are your earliest memories of this, where the people that you looked up, see who were leaders where people seeing leadership potential in you read, like the quiet kid on the playground, reorganizing everyone like what, what was life like in the beginning years? So it's very much about servant leadership behind the scenes leadership. So service leadership was something that I was taught as a child before it was something that was commonplace are taught in the world. My father was a very, very giving person but very much behind the scenes. So we were the family that would go, maybe a clean someone's house, or MO. Our yard or, or do something like that in service to them just to say, hey, we know times at RAF or we know you just need a break, or don't do this go spend time with your kids, and it was in most of the time, we would do this things anonymously. Right. Because if they might say no to us otherwise or we didn't want anything for it. We just wanted them to feel like like the fairies came at, you know, like, wow, this is so cool. And then my mom who was an administrative assistant for over forty years. She is very very soft spoken. She's very quiet. She's a small woman, but she leads with such power authority in, in a quiet way that it goes really unnoticed. So I naturally fell into this kind of service type leadership that was very quiet. So I think that's why for the years since I've been in this world of entrepreneurship, I'd never really identified or. You know, own that title or that rule because I felt really comfortable doing it for myself, and, like kind of in the background in virtually and, and that sort of thing, but not like okay now I am the CEO I have a team, I'm going to lead them. I am responsible for the people of a responsible before. It was like, if, if I fail, it's just me. That I think that's the shift that I made because now if I fail I have three other people that I failed as well. Yeah, yeah. So there's so much that you're up to these days. And I want I wanted to tease out some of that for you where with you. But the question I have actually is, how do you what do you find most rewarding about the work you're doing today? Let's ask that. I find joy in, in serving people. You know it comes in all different ways. And sometimes side is like you say something to them, and it's uplifting, you're able to find them just the right person. Sometimes my consultation, so many times, people comment, they'll say I just don't think I, I have the personality for this. I quite demanding like you like, watch what I can do. And I'm like your someone's dream, and they're like, wow. That sounds really great like I would like to work for manly coup hint. But that's in the matchmaking cited in on the virtual system side, really just love helping people see, like pass their pass where they are passed that hump to get over that. And to get to the other side where their dreams are. And then now this association has just taken off and I just love that. So many people have said, wow. I'm so excited that you created this. And the thing that keeps coming up is no judgment safe-space, a place where I can ask you dumb questions quote unquote, you know, it's just a place for everybody. And what gives me the most joy now is so when I'm thinking about people, and I have a saying everybody is somebody, but we didn't go out purposely to say, hey, I wanna make sure we have, you know, this many people of color, this many males this many people from this. Country or that country. And we need these numbers to make sure like, we're, you know, diverse in inclusive, and we got it anyways, and when people were trying to get an early, I thought that was the most exciting part. But when we actually opened it up, and people came in and I saw it. I was just overwhelmed to tears because I thought, wow, like this is what this is the message that we're trying to get across. But there's no greater there's no greater way that we are placed for everybody, then for everyone of all nationalities in countries in different phases in their career different backgrounds to join that was that's giving me most door right now. So I think the fact that you went forward into this is pretty amazing. I mean, everyone listening has heard of the virtual assistant many have them many more probably need them. So realize it or haven't figured how to do. Do it. And as I know you've said the time to get one before you need one. Now, now is the moment to go look up Melissa if you're on that edge, you're wondering. But you actually helped me. Get started with a virtual assistant and I, I wanna share that a little bit because I was a couple years ago, launching a book you I wanted to launch a chorus right? Afterwards was running a podcast. And the thing about me is I didn't have a lot of revenue at the time..
