Hey, I’m Melissa!
As Seen In:
  • Time is money, so why waste it? 💁🏽
  • Hey @templeuniv students, come learn about #branding on Monday! #edumakation
  • Four years ago I had this idea of starting a "kickass mag for the modern woman." I wanted to create a community for women that was fun, relevant and useful. Four years later and we've grown to a full-service digital platform, former co-working space, agency and conference catering to women and female-focused brands around the nation. Now we have our name on a nail polish through a collaboration aimed to inspire women to continue being kickass, and I couldn't be more excited. Thank you to all of the awesome friends who have spent hours helping, brainstorming, name it in order for @femmeandfortune to grow - I couldn't be more grateful that y'all believed in me and my passion for this biz. Thanks to my partner in crime @nikkatnightt for being with me since The Hive days and providing the backbone I needed to elevate the brand even further. We have so much more to achieve as a squad and I know we're ready to tackle on anything. Today's lesson: Keep pushing towards your dreams folks, cause the universe and your friends will have your back. 🔮🙏🏽❤️
