Both in business and parenthood, you have to be prepared and ready to pivot when necessary. Today I sat down with, She Built It™ founder and CEO, Melanie Barr to talk about all things MOMprenuer. Raising kids and running a business in itself can be everything from challenging to rewarding but add in the chaos from this last year and you are facing uncharted territory.
About the Guest:
Melanie Barr is the Founder + CEO of She Built it™. She is an Entrepreneur, Podcaster, Community Creator, Twin Mama, Wife, & Optimist.
Melanie started She Built It™ and the family it has become today. They come together to empower you to "experience the life and business that you crave." They make meaningful member connections and share knowledge and resources that inspire you to make your next leap - big or small.
Melanie launched She Built It™ in 2015 after selling millions in products and services for Fortune 500 companies and entrepreneurs - Marriott Hotels, AT&T, the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Millennium Corporate Solutions to name a few. She also led Boards and assisted organizations with female-focused missions such as Step Up and Women’s Initiative Network (WIN) , an organization of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
She is grateful for her twins, her family, friends, tea, wine, bingeing on a good show after a long day to wind down her creative mind, and the She Built It™ community. She earned a BA in Marketing from Loyola Marymount. Melanie and her husband - Jonathan Levey and her seven -year-old twins, Parker and Elliott, live in Los Angeles, California.
About the Host:
Following the crumbs in the chaos is a full time job. As a busy mom of three, a wife to a traveling hubby, and keeping it weird in Austin, Texas, it’s safe to say that my life is never boring. In addition to running my coaching business as C’N’C’s CEO, I’m a certified coach for a premier virtual fitness and nutrition program helping others feel better while sustaining a healthy lifestyle. My mom and dad are thrilled that I’m putting my Exercise Science degree to good use. Along with my experience training pro athletes, S.W.A.T. members, and a high school football team, I gained 10+ years experience as the Director of Marketing building multiple court reporting companies. Lastly, I am a published writer, Content Coordinator, and Account Executive for a publication by Best Version Media. They even gave me a monthly “How to” column where I teach others how to be more self-sufficient with common household tasks. Every woman should know how their home functions and what to do if something malfunctions, man or no man. With my husband on the road, searching “How To” on the internet has transformed me into a “Mommy MacGyver”. “I don’t know how you have the time.” “You’re like a Supermom!” These are common things that people say, but the truth is that life hasn’t always been easy or pretty. Even with the bumps, I always try to find the humor in everything because laughter is good for the soul and you should never take life too seriously….where’s the fun in that?
