 By providing practical, no-nonsense advice, Melisa will arm your team with gritty tactics to prioritize, organize, and manage time effectively. Her mission is to help people & businesses become more productive which makes them more profitable!

If there are no systems, structure, or processes in a business, it is impossible to grow and scale a company. Stop ignoring the systems, automation, and organization and start moving the needle forward! With a clear focus on the ROI of daily activities, it's time to stop spinning those wheels on the stuff that doesn’t matter. Analytical & logical by nature, Melisa loves utilizing her extensive consulting background at Fortune 500 companies PLUS her own experience as a startup founder to bring your audience the roadmap they need to succeed. ​


“In one Let's Get You Organized workshop, Melisa covered all the most important areas and gave me actionable strategies. She is direct, transparent, and knows what she’s talking about. What’s more, she offered unique tips you won’t find anywhere else. I have already recommended her to many in my network!”


"We needed help in organizing our digital files & contracts as we’re in a period of expansion in the business. Melisa was CRUCIAL in improving our processes and workflow efficiency!"

This signature workshop is for small business owners who need to lay foundational structures with a customized plan of action. This workshop is for driven individuals that are committed to their business & ready to get to the next level of growth. Where are the actual profits coming in? Where is there traction? It’s time to figure out what’s working & what's not. Melisa's 1-hour session is all about honing in on strategic goals to elevate leaders by teaching them to stay in their zone of genius, not drowning in overwhelm!


"In my first workshop with Melisa, any shred of hesitation was completely squashed within 5 minutes (or less, if I'm being honest)! She understood exactly where I was coming from, calmed my doubts before I could point them out, and was very transparent about the TANGIBLE value her workshops provide. Melisa's workshop gives you everything she promises --- a no-nonsense breakdown as to how to grow a business and avoid some common rookie mistakes. She was and still is extremely supportive as a mentor figure in this community and I would recommend her program to ANYONE who is ready to really start putting work into their business.100% worth the money and time!"


"Melisa is the driving force I needed to push myself! Her wokrshops are very detailed and straightforward. Starting a business can be very overwhelming but she has broken it down step by step. I’m a busy mom and working with Melisa has allowed me to take my time and do things slowly. She has given me the confidence I need and she has gone out of her way to answer all my questions. I’m so excited to see my business develop and grow!"

"Melisa is a total rockstar! She helped me get everything organized and truly jumpstart my health & fitness coaching business. I was able to accomplish so much in her workshop. Melisa is a phenomenal business coach, writer, connector and creative. She has a way of repackaging your own, sometimes confusing, thoughts in a way that adds meaningful direction for your business. Her uplifting, positive, and fun personality make her easy to open up to and wonderful to work with. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a deeply passionate business coach."

Quote from Founder, Crystal Browning's, feature in the San Diego Business Journal, after winning SDBJ Business Woman of the Year in September 2019:

"I would like to thank Flossie Hall, Melisa Celikel (Secretary, Baggage Nanny Board of Advisors), and Silviah Mah for being so supportive of me on this journey especially during the ups and downs. Being an entrepreneur can be overwhelming & isolating, so I'm very grateful for the strong women who have stood beside me and encouraged me to keep pushing. I'm excited to see what city we bring our service to next!"

Every company needs an effective Leadership Development program. You have to pay your people. You have some benefits to give. You know how to hire (and how to fire). But now on top of all that, you've got to know how to train, engage, and develop your people so that they'll stay

...that's a lot to think about, right?


Melisa's goal is for each client is to exhibit a clear mission & purpose that provides clarity for employees to follow standards of excellence in a buzzing environment where they can thrive and produce awesome results.  Fulfilled employees lead fulfilled lives, that then impacts the world for the better. 


Stop trying to wear all the hats. 

Delegate and MAKE SHT HAPPEN.


....need an engaged workforce with employees that love their jobs, their coworkers, and their superiors

....know that unmotivated teammates can drag down company culture and high turnover is NOT an option

....have hired a team of professionals but don't have the training development and delivery strategies to keep them aboard

if this sounds like you, let's chat!
