"The Branding Masterclass has been an essential tool for starting my business. I needed guidance on how to take my initial idea of Life Coaching and turn into a well thought out business concept. With Melissa’s expertise, I’ve achieved a clear brand vision and understanding of how vital branding is to a successful business.
"This program was so impactful, I am telling every business owner I know about Melissa. From the structure of the modules to the supportive group sessions, Melissa effectively translates how branding is must more than just aesthetics. This course helped me reshape my platform by reconnecting to why I choose to do this work. Can't thank her enough."
-Toni Thomas, Systems Consultant
"Loved Melissa’s Branding Masterclass. Just the encouragement and guidance I needed. Melissa listens!! And provides tangible examples (not just theory) of what to apply to your specific business to move it forward."
-Alice K., CEO of PerfectDD
"The Branding Masterclass Accelerator Program was hands down one of the most helpful courses I've taken. I've wanted to build my own business for some time and didn't know how to start. This course is detailed and given me a framework and surprisingly a community of support to take off. Before the course was over I was able to make enough inroads to properly formulate a plan, and get started. I'm so grateful for this program!
Brittany Anderson, Yoga & Sound Practitioner
"As a recent graduate looking to start a brand, I found this class to be essential in clarifying my voice and direction both personally and professionally. Before this program I hadn’t even realized that I had been neglecting wellness in order to focus on work, and I found this class and the group coaching calls to be like business therapy! I now feel confident moving forward with building my brand and growing my audience on social media."
-Zoe Grinfeld, Fashion Designer
"The Branding Masterclass was great! Because of its thoughtful structure I was able to finally accomplish, in just a few weeks, what I've been meaning to do for years. I also found The Personal Brand Audit to be a much appreciated bonus in this class. It made me think about my entrepreneurship differently. I've already recommended this program to a few entrepreneur friends!"

As a result I now understand Cacao Labs brand identity much better and I am able to talk about the brand and it’s core offerings more clearly."
