Overcome your inner critic (and imposter syndrome!) & connect with your inner coach
You’re an ambitious entrepreneur with big dreams for your business,
but too often you’re thinking about calling it quits.
Sure, things look great from the outside, but on the inside, it’s a whole different story.
What if I told you
There’s a way to navigate the ups and downs of entrepreneur life so the lows aren’t so low.
And that it’s 100% possible to enjoy success without sacrificing your well-being and relationships in the process.
Want to know the secret?
executive COACHING for entrepreneurs
Imagine what it would be like to:
Cultivate Mental Fitness & Emotional Resilience so you can better navigate stress and overwhelm and bounce back faster from failure, rejection or disappointment
Have more time and energy for your loved ones because you’re more focused and productive at work and don’t feel guilty stepping away from your business
Make faster, more intentional decisions by ditching overthinking and analysis paralysis
Feel energized and motivated to grow your business to its full potential and reconnect with what motivated you to start start it in the first place
Show up as a confident and courageous leader who doesn’t let self-doubt or fear hold them back from making an impact in the world
Sound like the missing piece to your
success as an entrepreneur?
Hi, I’m Melissa
I’m a former therapist (PhD in Clinical and Health Psychology) who now works as an Executive Coach for Entrepreneurs around the globe, with a special focus on startup founders.
I know firsthand just how mentally and emotionally challenging the entrepreneurial journey can be. Not only have I lived it myself, but I also had a front row seat to the emotional rollercoaster my husband experienced when founding his startup. When you’re an entrepreneur, it’s so easy to get into your own head, doubt yourself, and end up harming your (mental) well-being and relationships if you don’t take proactive action.
As an executive coach for entrepreneurs, I combine 15 years of experience in mental and behavioral health, along with my own journey as an entrepreneur, to help empower you to step into your full potential as an entrepreneur, without sacrificing your mental well-being or relationships along the way.

What my clients say
“Melissa is a warm, kind and caring coach. She’s a great listener and truly sees, hears, and understands her clients. If you’re looking for a compassionate coach, I highly recommend connecting with Melissa Parks.”
“Melissa is professional, organized, and very well tapped into helpful informational resources. I appreciated that when we talked, she was often able to offer insight into how the brain works, human psychological tendencies, and especially useful strategies for navigating situations.
“I can’t say enough about Melissa. Her sessions are full of compassion, patience, understanding, and growth. She gave me just the right tools to gently guide me as I overcame stressful moments in my life and worked on being my best self. I learned so much from working with her that I still use to this day, which is so empowering. I really recommend working with her!”
“I like having all the tools you shared with me that I still get to fall back on and think about from time to time. I enjoyed having you to speak with and the way you helped me to accept my feelings and know that sometimes it’s ok to be mad, frustrated, sad, all that stuff but mostly you helped me to identify my stressful triggers with my work and my family so that I could control my emotions more, be more accepting of myself, and live life in a more even manner with my emotions and reactions with my team.”
