Who is Melanie Wilson?

Back when I had three little kids, ages five, three, and one, I attended my first elementary school PTO meeting. When I got home, my husband asked me if I had been made PTO president yet. 

 

Of course he was joking, but he knew that it wouldn’t take long for me to put into action my passion for community volunteering, and he was right. It did take a couple of years to get that top job, but my long career of service and support to the local community had begun.

 

Now, I teach entrepreneurial women how to create engaging written content. Whether you are an entrepreneur who is just starting out and needs ideas and inspiration, or if you are a seasoned pro in need of a content tune up, I can help. No time to write? I can do that for you too! 

One of the reasons I started my business is because of some sage advice I heard at a women's business empowerment/networking meeting. That advice was:  We don’t have to do it all ourselves; it's best to focus on the part of our business that we are best at and parcel out the rest.​

  • I write well, and can teach others techniques so that they can be good writers too. 

  • I also love identifying what women need, and connecting women who are meant to work together.

  • And, I love helping small businesses (again, mostly women owned) come up with creative marketing ideas so that they can grow.

​I packaged my skills, and now offer them to those who want to write a little better, or, perhaps, not have to think about writing at all and focus on the parts of their business that made them want to launch it in the first place.

These are some projects I have worked on:

  • For over a decade I was president of Speak Up Summit, a public education advocacy group. I organized monthly meetings with speakers and wrote articles to inform the general community about was going in the local public school district--things like curriculum and budget, but also what was going on in New Jersey and across the country that would impact our schools.

  • I helped multiple local groups raise funds through publishing ad journals for them, and sold online advertising for a start-up newspaper and can teach you how to publish an online or print journal for your business.

  • For nearly eight years I have run a local chapter of BIG--Believe, Inspire, Grow, a women's empowerment group. BIG provides inspiration, tools, and community for entrepreneurial women. I have planned monthly meetings and events for 100 dues-paying members, including an annual "Expo of Products and Services," and numerous panel discussions. I love planning special events and programs, and can show you how to successfully incorporate this into your business.

  • For a few years now I have been the Board of Education reporter for TAPinto Summit, and have recently launched "Melodrama" a slice-of-life column on the web site. I have also had articles published on the “Grown and Flown” web site.

  • I have worked with a local, professional theatre company for the past several years helping them find new, creative ways to get more butts in their seats and generate new revenue streams.

  • In 2020, I launched “Women Who Write,” a community-engagement group for women who want peer feedback before they publish material. 

 

I have lived in Summit, NJ for over 25 years. My husband and I are watching our three little birds slowly leave the nest.
