043 - Melanie Curtis: A Skydivers Approach to Life
Melanie Curtis is a coach, entrepreneur, author, speaker, and professional skydiver. Melanie’s clients are like her… intense Type-A personalities, vibrant in their energy, fierce in their values, impeccable in their integrity, human and lovely in their emotions, working to contribute positively to the world, and willing to do whatever it takes…
As a lover of both nature and NYC, Melanie splits her time between the two to nurture her personal network and entrepreneurial pursuits. Melanie believes love and hilarity are the two most important things in life, in that order, and after taking a stand-up comedy class has that much more respect and appreciation for professional comedians.
A Middlebury College and iPec Coaching graduate, fierce coach, intensely driven entrepreneur, and comically authentic speaker and connector, Melanie has jumped out of an airplane 10,000 times, worked professionally in the sport of skydiving for many years, founded her own company, traveled the world challenging the model of mobile entrepreneurship, and extracts usable insight and hilarity in everything she writes and all content she creates. Mel is exceptionally talented at relating the bigger concepts of identifying fear and clarifying values to the specific situations particular leaders and groups face. She’s crazy good at situational and interpersonal integration of concept and accountable action. Mel connects in this way just as powerfully with a group as she does in an intimate one-on-one coaching conversation.
