Melissa is the founder and CEO of an award-winning accounting and advisory firm A+TA (Accounting & Taxation Advantage) and co-founder and Director of Business at the long-day early learning school for 3-5 year olds, Thinkers.inq – two very different and yet two very similar businesses. Both are pushing the boundaries in their fields, questioning what is possible and disrupting their industry in order to create the best possible results for their clients.
Being an accountant Melissa understands numbers but being an entrepreneur and the owner of multiple businesses, she understands that numbers are only part of the story. She knows exactly what it takes to achieve results that defy the trends and create incredibly robust, successful businesses. Melissa may also have a serious shoe addiction but she balances this with a wealth creation strategy to ensure she won’t have to live in them someday and she works with clients so they can also enjoy their life today but have financial freedom tomorrow.
Melissa’s first book is the illustrated business book More Money for Shoes which compares building a business to building a wardrobe and shows you how to build a profitable, successful business. Her much anticipated second book, Fabulous but Broke, is another illustrated business book and uses financial fairy tales to challenge money messages that readers may have and question the notion that you need a fairy godmother or knight in shining armour to save you.
Melissa is regularly asked to speak and comment on money, business & occasionally shoes! She writes a fortnightly column for the Money Section in the Sydney Morning Herald (The Age and affiliates) is a monthly contributor to Gloss Magazine and has made regular appearances on the Today Show and Weekend Today. She has also been featured in Latte Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Renegade Collective and in 2013 was featured as one of Australia’s 100 most inspiring women in Madison magazine.
