MAP Client Testimonials

Scott Miller, Owner of II XCL Strength & Conditioning

I joined MAP because Melody has always guided me in the right direction for 9 years. The idea of getting one on one time to get things done in my business was perfect. I joined the group because I could also bounce ideas from other business owners, while adding value myself to the group.

Melody has the expertise to keep me on track with marketing along with staying on task to reach my goals. Melody understands the never-ending trends and stays ahead of the curve when it comes to simplifying Marketing for us. I've been able to be 6 months ahead on marketing my business due to detail planning with Melody. From dates, pricing, content, you name it. It has allowed me to really pinpoint my target audience as well.


Laura Barnard, APR w Sweet Tea Communications

As a newcomer to north Alabama, MAP has helped introduce me to new people, industries and organizations I need to join to grow my business. It has also helped me put my business first in order to help it grow.


Tammie Brown, Owner of Restoring Bodies Fitness & Nutrition Service

I joined and participated in MAP because, as a new entrepreneur, I needed help learning how to market my business with a limited budget. I met Melody by a referral, and she made me feel as though I could do anything; that I had superpowers and could tackle the world with the skill set I had. She never made me feel I wasn’t competent, but that I was more than able in my abilities and creativity. She taught me how to market a small and intimate business such as mine.

MAP has given me confidence in my marketing skills. I sometimes get brain fog, attending MAP gave me the ability to tap into what we do well and market that to the public. MAP also helped me to be intentional in reaching out to new clients. I really enjoyed working with MAP and Melody, she has a way of making you feel you're first on her list.


Stephanie Wheeler Whitlow, Owner of Hyperwriter Technical Writing Solutions

I decided to join MAP when I realized that I was great with networking 1:1 but didn’t have a marketing strategy. I was looking for a mentor, needed accountability and also wanted to work with a supportive group of like-minded entrepreneurs.

Through the MAP program, I have learned how to set goals and face the challenges that come with having a business (and that I’m not alone in those challenges). I have also learned to celebrate my successes and how wonderful it is to have a mentor and a group that celebrate along with me.


Tyrone Harris, Transcend Health & Fitness Studio & Happi Pappi Food Truck Services

I joined the MAP program to divulge into the marketing side of business. I felt that I offered a great service but needed help promoting it. I wanted to collaborate with others on how to reach a broader group of people. Map has helped by business grow and the opportunity to be in places that I would not be otherwise.


Amanda Cawthron, Marketing Manager for Huntsville Hub Co-working Space.

We saw MAP as an amazing way to set goals for our marketing projects and have the back-up to push us in the right direction. The time spent in MAP has proven extremely useful for our company, and the group support received with the other members has been the best support we could have hoped for.

I have a million ideas and my to-do list never gets any smaller. MAP has helped me weed out the nonsense and focus on the important goals for my marketing strategy. I have been able to stay on task and complete goals I had made that I thought were farfetched for my ability and I am thankful for the push.


Elizabeth McCleskey, DO, Owner of HealthStyles Family Medicine

Due to the unique nature of the practice, there were no roadmaps on how to promote our differences. After attempting to advertise unsuccessfully via search engines, magazines and the newspaper, we were looking for a reasonably priced training program that could target our specific challenges. In addition to identifying specific strategies, Melody provides an organizational format with a timeline which breaks down the tasks to help you succeed in accomplishing them.


Kecia Pierce, President/Owner of K. Pierce Consulting, LLC & Executive Consultant w Rodan + Fields Skincare.

I had previously done some of Melody’s My Size Marketing workshops on various topics and found them so beneficial and we usually had good audience participation and interaction. When I mentioned to Melody how that group interaction and input was extremely helpful to me in figuring out which tools, methods, ideas, etc. would be better for me to utilize for specific areas of both of my businesses, she told me about the MAP program. I was very interested in learning more, so I attended my first meeting for free and then signed up on the spot!

Working and networking with a group of other entrepreneurs and business owners to discuss and provide input on our individual marketing plans, upcoming events, needs, and challenges has been huge! This group has helped me divert my attention from tools that are either overpriced or overkill for my business needs, and directed me to others that are a better fit. The program has taught me new tools and techniques for creating targeted email campaigns, Facebook ads, private groups, as well as additional seminars and networking opportunities. Also, I now have a diverse group of new contacts within my back yard—from a baker, technical writer, personal trainer, etc. to a life and mindset coach. Plus, Melody does one-on-one sessions with each of us. This is where we can really roll up our sleeves and tackle something that I have struggled with or just not found the time to think through.


Rachel Eubanks, Marketing Coach & Inspire to Engage Podcast Host

I met Melody about 3 years ago at the Catalyst Center and loved her desire to help! After seeing Facebook posts about the MAP program and contemplating it for a while, I decided to join so she would get me out of my comfort zone.

Melody has shared tools with me and given me confidence to just be me. Her coaching style is uplifting while pushing you to think of issues from different perspectives. Thank you, Melody!


Julie Noles, Mindset Coach & Owner of State of Mind Coaching and Artist with Cold Noses on Canvas Pet Portrait Studio

I was and am still very new to the entrepreneur scene and had not had to market myself before. The thought of having a marketing coach and a group of other entrepreneurs that could weigh in was very appealing. The tools that Melody teaches are ones that you can go back to over and over. The one on one coaching that she provides in the program is invaluable as well.
