About Melissa Swanson
I am no stranger to hard work. I started a catering company in Charlotte, NC at the age of 23 and ran it for twenty years. I put the profits from my events back into the business and eventually into real estate. I studied all things money; namely Suze Orman, Tony Robbins and Robert Kiyosaki. I took debt reduction and investing classes at the community college and was adamant to change the financial disaster I brought with me out of college. It took many years and many long hours at my catering company but eventually I got over that hump. I am a firm believer in how you do anything is how you do everything and I live my life seeking excellence in all I do. I enjoy teaching, motivating and saving others from the pain of the mistakes I have made along the way. Learn More
