Hi, Melanie here...

client experience pro | Coffee Lover | Systems Fairy Godmother

For the last 25 years (or so), I have been in the public service, supporting high-level government executives.  And then, that all changed.  My husband and partner in crime got, what turned out to be, his final military posting.  So, we packed up a lifetime of belongings, moved across the country – like way across the country – and ended up calling Nova Scotia home. 

I had always thought about opening my own business but it always seemed a little too scary to take that leap.  And I was always able to come up with a reason why I shouldn’t do it.  It wasn’t the right time.  The kids had too many afterschool activities, but moving changed all that. 

We moved here as empty nesters and without a job to come to, dreaming became a reality and MLR Virtual Solutions was born.

Being a business owner I can totally relate to the feeling of being completely consumed by my business that I had no energy left to do the things I loved.

This wasn’t how I pictured things.  I knew it would be hard work, I just didn’t expect to be in my office until 2:00 am on such a regular basis. Then when my client load grew I found myself drowning in all the backend administrative tasks and I’m not going to lie, returning to a corporate 9-5 looked pretty good for a while. 

Fast forward…and I realized that although I am a whiz at creating systems and organization for my clients, I had missed something in my own setup and needed to find a tool that worked for my needs. I knew I wanted to work smarter instead of harder, I wanted to have the schedule I thought I would have when I started my business and I wanted to be able to feel confident to take time off, knowing that things would keep running without me.  And so off I went on my journey to find the perfect solution.

Little did I know that I would find a tool that would not only change the direction of my business but that it would actually change the direction of my business.  I pivoted my business to empower coaches, creatives, and service-based entrepreneurs to find freedom in their growth and run a business that allows them to be present for the things that bring them joy!
