    Hey Melissa!

    Loved your cookie analogy. I think I’m an Oreo with Oatmeal Raisin rising ๐Ÿ™‚ and try to steer clear of the Neiman Marcus types…

    Ironically, I used to supply the desserts for NM in northern California so that part was pretty funny. Cookie drama = good. People drama = not good.

      Hey Brenda,

      That’s too funny that you used to supply desserts to NM.

      Wow, oreo with oatmeal raisin, sounds like you are one powerful cookie!

      Hugs, Melissa

    I would walk a mile for a Walkers shortbread butter cookie.

  3. Wally says:

    Hi Melissa,

    Thanks, as always, for the hug.

    I’m afraid we don’t have the Neiman Marcus variety up here (Ontario Canada). When I go down to Santa Barbara to visit my Sister I must check them out.

    I have a thing for peanut butter cookies. I wonder how you would describe that.

    I was interested in your cookie analogies. Although I don’t know you personally, from your writing and your photo I would say you are beautiful inside and out. I am involved with a Company, (Vitamark) that concentrates quite heavily on Color Characterization. I am somewhat new and am in the throws of learning the system, but a lot of people are sold on it.

    Glad to hear your friend is getting better.

    Warm regards,


    • Melissa Galt says:

      Hey Wally,

      Great to hear from you. Not familiar with Vitamark, but I teach color psychology and know it makes a difference when we dress as our cookies! LOL

      Hugs, Melissa

    Great analogy – who cannot relate to cookies?!! I suspect I’m very much like my favourite, Lemon-Poppy Seed. The lemon, at first taste, is tart, but it neutralizes acid and can be refreshing, as long as there’s not too much sugar involved. The poppy seeds? You get lots of tiny seeds with every bite, even though you may not pay much attention to them. Other times, some of those little beggars can get between your teeth and demand your attention. Or so I like to think! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Melissa Galt says:


      That was a gorgeous analogy!! Truly delicious thank you for sharing, I’ll incorporate that in a future in depth post dedicated to one of a kind cookies! You are.

      Hugs, Melissa

  5. Margo says:

    Hi Melissa,

    Fun article. Thanks for sharing it.

    I may be something between oatmeal raisin and chocolate chip. I do know there are definitely some nuts in there too, lol!

    I see your point. We should always have some substance to offer others. I love this.

    Many hugs.


    • Melissa Galt says:

      Thanks Margo,

      That’s a good mix, I need to come up with my very own exotic cookie type!

      Hugs, Melissa

    Hello Melissa,

    It was nice receiving an email that addresses one of the issues that all marketers face! Myself I am an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie! Do I have a large following yet? NO! Do I care about a large following NO! I would much rather have 5 quality people that I can give True quality advice & tips to that will rocket their business, rather than concentrating on my numbers. ~~Magical Marilyn~~

    • Melissa Galt says:

      Hey Marilyn,

      I agree and got bemused when I got an auto DM on Twitter just today telling me that person was all about getting big numbers. He just doesn’t get it!

      You do.

      Hugs, Melissa

    Love this! Love you! Love cookies!

    It’s important to remember to that you might think you are one kind of cookie while you are coming across as another kind of cookie. Can you tell I just finished a personal branding class? I know many people who think they are oatmeal, but are sugar through and through. Ask the top 20% of your clients and the top 20% of your network what kind of cookie they think you are? It might prove to be enlightening.

    Going to get some Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies now. ๐Ÿ™‚
