About the Presenter: Melissa Willis has lived an anything but ordinary life. Born in New Orleans, she grew up overseas because her father worked in the oil industry. She was fortunate enough to travel the world at a young age, once with her parents and once on her own. Italy, Tokyo, Taiwan, New York, and Los Angeles are just a few of the places she has lived and worked. Her varied life experiences have found their way into many of her presentations through entertaining and pointed stories. Throughout her career, she has experienced the highs and lows that every business owner and professional does. Melissa always chooses to focus on the possibilities rather than the obstacles. Not one to mince words, her realistic approach comes with a healthy dose of positivity and real talk that cuts to the heart of the matter. Those who have been in Melissa’s audiences walk away with the power of possibilities for themselves and the knowledge that they’ve had the tools for success all along. Melissa began her education overseas and completed high school and college in New Orleans with a degree in Drama and Communications. She has over 20 years of international professional speaking experience. Melissa also has extensive experience in multi-level marketing, the restaurant industry, and the often-wild business of acting and modeling.
