Hi there! I’m Melissa.

I’m a mom, a serial entrepreneur, and a coach. I’ve made it my life’s mission to help women get their dream business up and running in a way that feels TOTALLY like them. I love empowering women to live their lives in a way they absolutely LOVE all while creating and experiencing financial abundance.

I’m all about empowering women like YOU create a life by YOUR unique design.

If there’s one thing I’m best at, it’s developing a personalized and easy to implement game plan, allowing my clients to actually live that life sooner rather than later.

Prior to developing my business as a coach, I was trained as a legal expert. Yes, I actually have a law degree. And no, I’m currently not doing anything with it by choice, and I’m completely ok with that. You may wanna ask my mom if she feels the same 😉

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to have my own business, live life MY way, do business MY way. It probably is related to growing up with a dad who ran his own successful company.

After doing the math, I decided to start my own business.

I am blessed to have been able to go through all the famous programs from Marie Forleo to Tony Robbins, from Mary Morrissey to Jeff Walker, from Gina DeVee to Danielle LaPorte and all the knowledge that I gained by doing these have made me the coach I am today: one who’s both very practical as well as spiritual and VERY intuitive.

Business & Success Coach Melissa Hottinga

Today I get to work with women from all over the world who are struggling to live out their desires and make good money at the same time. I help these women get out of overwhelm and into well thought out and inspired action, all while making sure that everything we set out, is realistic and in complete alignment with who they REALLY are, not some small version of themselves or a copied version of someone else.
