Tell me a little about what you do
Melody Johnson is the owner and founder of The Course Consultant and podcast host of The Course Consultant and Customer Success Show. She helps group coaching founders grow their recurring revenue through customer success and streamlining systems.
What made you decide to go down the road to creative entrepreneurship?
I’ve always been a daydreamer and teacher. So much of my life I have either been ideating an exciting new process improvement or helping people see the big picture to achieve their goals. As a process enthusiast and systems nerd, I knew sitting in a corporate chair was far from what I envisioned in my life. My spouse and I move frequently and sitting in bed or on the couch doing work felt much more manageable and simplified (not to mention more comfortable!).
What advice can you share with other creatives who are struggling?
Become your biggest fan. Celebrate your small and big wins alike. Surround yourself with those that challenge AND cheer you on. Invest in people that care about you and want to see you succeed, even if it means challenging you beyond what you can see right now.
What’s a favorite inspiring quote of yours?
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be?” – Marianne Williamson
Can you share a favorite marketing tip with us?
Create an affiliate marketing program filled with your fans and colleagues. One of my favorite tools is Thrivecart and it’s such a simplified way to manage and market your existing programs and curriculum – while also celebrating and supporting your peers and colleagues. Once you setup your affiliate program with Thrivecart, put in the effort to provide your affiliates with marketing assets that help promote you!
What are your five favorite things right now?
Squishmallows, Skinny Girl Margarita Mix (seriously, yum), Drip Coffee, Clickup, and Star Trek Voyageur (Nerdy – I know!)
What song do you listen to when you need to get motivated?
Work From Home or Taylor Swift’s Shake it Off

Elise Darma, Madelyn Bailey, Jax, Safiya

Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one of you. And there will never be another.
