Ready to grow your brand through public speaking?
Want to find out how?
When I started my biz in November 2014, I was nursing a baby and homeschooling a pre-schooler. I didn't have a lot of time or money. Yet I knew I had something to say, a message to share with the world and a legacy to build. So I decided to focus on what I now call the S.W.E.E.T factor. I apply the S.W.E.E.T factor to my overall business and my speaking career.
And here I am, 3 years later with a successful-growing and full-time business built by using a proven system that I'm going to share with you.
When you know something works, time and time again, then you know you've struck gold.
I've not only helped myself grow through using this proven framework, but I've helped dozens of clients do the same in their businesses.
And now I'm ready to help you to grow your brand through public speaking by using my proven system.
About Me, your coach
I'm a business & relationship coach for women. I'm a motivational speaker and author of the books EntrepreFriendships & Threads Unraveled (coming soon). All of my work is central to supporting women in building purposeful and profitable businesses while maintaining healthy relationships.
In three short years of being in business, I've spoken at nearly 50 different events, been published in magazines and blog articles, published a book and I've been featured on several podcasts. I've worked with many small businesses and supported them in surpassing their growth goals. I've also grown a profitable and and purposeful business over the last 3 yrs. So I believe it's safe to say that the S.W.E.E.T system works.
I've had nearly 200 one-on-one meet & greet conversations with industry peers and leaders such as Heather Crabtree, Tash from Ike & Tash Photography, Natalie MacNeil, Natalie Frank, Tara Gentile, Stacey Ferguson, Carrie Grace, Mecca Gamble, Dr. Roselyn Aker-Black, Kathleen Shannon co-founder of Being Boss Podcast, The ladies behind Think Creative Collective, PR & Marketing directors at Ben & Jerry's, Emily Ley's team and the list goes on.
I'm a natural big-bold dreamer and a deeply rooted woman of faith, proud Navy wife and loving mother to two little ones. I have a BA in social science with an emphasis in Sociology & Psychology and two years of graduate school education in Clinical Counseling from Johns Hopkins University. I believe life is about relationships, so let’s spend more time enjoying them.
If there's one thing I know how to do in business, I know how to keep things S.W.E.E.T and I want to show you how too.
So what's the S.W.E.E.T System
The S.W.E.E.T System is an acronym I created to originally describe your client experience. To keep the acronym going I decided to use it to focus on the different stages in which I work with my clients to support them in growing their business. The system can be used for your overall business(as outlined below) or for a segment of your business, such as public speaking. As this system applies to your overall business it means the following (I'll share more on how it applies to public speaking in the next section):
S.W.E.E.T System for your Business:
Story: What's your story? What's your brand's story? What's your client's story and how do we bring it all together into a brand story that makes sense and stays true to your values, while aligning and connecting with your core audience.
Wealth: This is where we get clear on how you're growing your brand and building your business to expand and to be sustainable.
Experience: This is where we get clear on your detailed client experience and how you're serving your clients best. If you want to make sure your clients come back or refer you, then you need an experience that makes them want to do so.
Exceptional: This where we focus on building exceptional marketing strategies and relationships to grow your brand. We focus on your overall strategy for growth and then narrow in on your specific relationship marketing strategy, so you know who you should be connecting with and how.
Team: Because to grow your business means to grow a strong and supportive team.This is where we get clear on how to grow and nurture your team (whether you're just hiring or have an established team)

What people are saying about working with me
"You are truly a GOD sent ANGEL!!!! This is absolutely perfect and professional. Thank you so much. I’m starting to feel like we’re finally putting the foundation under our dream thanks to you! Your process of clarifying the brands identity is fabulous. In addition, the marketing plan created will allow for duplication in the future, plus your help actually executing the plan was exactly what we needed What I liked most about working with Monique Melton is her beautiful spirit!!!" — Erin Lewis, Gals Lead
"Our experience was great! We are very happy with the growth we had personally and in our business :)I personally appreciated how insightful Monique was. For having never met in person, it was quite remarkable how deep things went and how much understanding we gained, via phone calls only. Honestly we came out of our program feeling great. We chose Monique, because she (#1) gave us a chance and spoke with us openly without judgement and (#2) during that first discovery call, it was very quickly apparent that Monique was exactly who we needed. She was wonderful to talk to and we had no second thoughts and knew immediately after hanging up that she was who we wanted to work with. We really appreciate your time Monique. Thank you for all your guidance!" — Jessica Wagner, Pember
"My favorite part of working with Monique was brainstorming together and her careful , thoughtful, insightful questions which helped me help myself and also to take notes that will continue to help me as I grow. What I liked most about working with Monique was Everything. Really. I liked that we wound up spacing it out longer than weekly because what I wanted changed as I worked with Monique. I like that she could keep the focus on the lesson. I like the written homework tho some parts of it don't quite seem to fit what I do - the work is still provocative and in trying to figure if there is a fit led me to new insights on my work and work on how I could make it fit. I was pretty much done with ever using a coach again until I ran into Monique and a 1 on 1 with her sparked the idea that maybe, just maybe, I had at last found someone who understood partnership coaching. You have to understand that I have tried several other BIG $ coaches over the past decade and fired them all. So glad we did this together! Thank you!" — Tammy Vitale, Exit by the Bay Real Estate Agent
"She kicks my mental butt every time I talk to her, and I love it. If you are in business I recommend getting hooked up with this woman!" —Carol Lara
"Monique really gets to know you and your business. She genuinely cares about helping you and your business. She dives and deep and pulls out things in you that you didn't even know and really gets the creative part of running a business. What I liked most about working with Monique is that I felt I not only had a coach but someone in my corner. Being a boss can be hard and having someone to support you when you doubt yourself is huge." — Amy Thompson, Lola Belle Co.
