Chrissy Mellinger is a strategic business coach and activator. Following a furlough from the hospitality industry in 2020, she took the opportunity to redesign her own life and follow her calling. Chrissy holds dual Bachelor of Science degrees in Finance and Economics, as well as an MBA. Additionally, she holds a CAPM from PMI and hosts the Soulfully Strategic Entrepreneurship podcast. It is this dedication to personal development she combines with a mission of empowering others to serve her clients in creating sustainable service based businesses that light up their souls.
Tell us about your life before the venture/ leading up to your venture?
Previously, I worked as a Revenue Manager for hotels where I was on call 24/7 and prioritized my career above all else. After years of not taking care of myself, my brain and body finally took action for me and I took a leave of absence in 2018.
Tell us something about your organization. What is it about and how is it helpful for people?
My coaching business combines years of strategy, corporate business growth, “hard skills”, and my own personal development journey to help other women discover their authentic voice and show up confidently as themselves in order to create business empires. It is through the creation of women-owned empires that we can change the world.
What has been the response of the consumers towards your venture?
Over the past 2 years, I have helped well over 100 women identify their business goals, create strategies to achieve them, and feel more fulfilled with their lives overall. It’s been an incredible experience for them and me. Here are some testimonials from clients:
“After my session with Chrissy, I have more clarity moving forward, which is something I’d been lacking after a launch that didn’t go quite to plan and a slight direction change in how I share my offers. Talking with her was a reminder that I do know what I’m doing, it’s just about organizing my thoughts and bringing in that consistency, which will benefit both me and my audience. Thank you!“
“Before my session with Chrissy I didn’t know what step to take next with my new business. I was stuck. Chrissy helped me break all my thoughts down and put them into actionable steps. After our session I took one imperfect step towards my goal and it gave me the motivation to keep going! I ended the week having made major progress towards my goals. Chrissy helped me realize I can do this. I would recommend a session for anyone that needs help overcoming roadblocks or setbacks.“
“Chrissy is full of life and you can’t help but smile when she guides and encourages you to express your inner truth. She sacredly holds you in your vulnerability, even when you are doubting yourself she sees your potential and gifts. She is a beautiful light in this world that is deeply needed.“
“Chrissy has helped me more than words can describe, and I’m a writer so that’s saying a lot. Chrissy has the amazing ability to help you see your blocks with such grace. She is supportive and concrete in her guidance and suggestions. I leave every conversation feeling understood and empowered to take the next step. Chrissy is encouraging and truly believes in the success of all of her clients. I am so grateful for Chrissy and what she has helped me discover about myself. Even if I haven’t accomplished what I said I was going to, Chrissy doesn’t judge. She helps me to figure out why and allows me the space to explore. Thank you Chrissy! “
Also, I recently launched a podcast – The Soulfully Strategic Entrepreneurship Podcast – and with only 12 episodes published, have already had nearly 200 downloads!

That thing that keeps tugging on your heart, that idea that won’t go away? It’s there for a reason. All the beliefs and “logic” holding you back is fear, fear that doesn’t belong to you. That idea, that purpose, that dream…it’s there for a reason. Pursue it.
