Stop Fitting In, Start Standing Out for Outrageous Success

  1. Thanks for being such a trusted resource on standing out, Melissa! You’ve inspired me to use more personal videos in my newsletter and blog. I can see, by your example, that it’s a great way to get noticed and make a difference.

      Thanks Tricia,

      That means a lot coming from you. I think you’d be aces on video! You’ve got a wonderful warm style and a really solid program to share in bitesize steps.

    I LOVE seeing you in a video Melissa! As you know I am a big fan of video – and of you of course 🙂

    I love what you said about hanging around with colleagues. So many people do it and for my first few years, like you I did not. I looked at what they were doing and then I went out and did my own thing. In fact I specifically saw what other accountants were NOT doing with video and I thought.. “there’s my opportunity!”

    Thanks Melissa! I love getting your newsletters!

    Great video post, Melissa! Too many people flock the sheep to someone else’s “formula.” The successful folks are the ones who march to the beat of their own drummer. Thanks for telling it like it is!

    Interesting stand on business. I agree we need to be our own “person.” Yet what about forming productive collaborations with colleagues to maximize outreach and success?

    • Melissa Galt says:


      This in no way precludes collaboration, I simply feel it is better to find one’s own path including taking risks and exploring outrageous ideas than to follow the flock. Once established an individual business owner can better explore the benefits of collaboration and partnership.

      Hugs, Melissa

    I definitely don’t try to fit in 😀 A multi-creative, heathen, witch, artist doing life coaching doesn’t show up every day 🙂

    • Melissa Galt says:

      You do stand out and that is to your credit. The tricky bit about us multi-creatives is focusing our energies in a way that enables our market to see and buy our brilliance!

      Hugs, Melissa

        That’s definitely tricky 🙂 On an unrelated note: Is there any way to get reply notifications? I seem to have missed quite a few replies.
