You Deserve a Thriving Resume Business...But You Don't Have to Build it Alone!

I started making more money in the first week of joining!

           Where do I begin? My LinkedIn Profile has improved, my website has improved, and I have learned a ton of valuable business-related and marketing-related info. All of the knowledge that I have applied has helped me make more money in my business than I was making before joining.


I love being in a group where we all pour into each other. Everyone has something valuable to contribute. Everyone is super positive and motivating...we truly want to see each other win.


The weekly virtual trainings are very unique. And I love that every time I ask a question (WHICH IS OFTEN), I get a response in seconds. I have never had this type of experience with any other association!

This group has become the center of my success thus far!

I decided to join the group because I was transitioning my business and I was looking into focusing on revamping everything.  I knew I needed a support group and like-minded leaders to help me. 


            This group is unique because everyone cares for your success.  Everyone shares their opinions and will walk you through something instantly when you are struggling.  There hasn't been any negativity or competition.  Only support and love from this group of leaders.


Mel, you are amazing.  You have taken me under your wing since 2016.  I got my first job in resume writing because of you.  Now that I am in this group your suggestions and advice have always been on time. 


            My favorite part of being a member is how much information you learn every day by leaders who are in the same profession as you.  Everything is relative, so all the information given is valuable to increasing your business.

Meeting Melanie was the best thing that ever happened to my resume writing career!

Not only did she take me under her wing as an uncertified resume writer, but she took the time to push me to be a better write and business woman.


With Melanie's help I was able to become a certified resume writer and earn my first published recognition of my work. Since working with Melanie,


I have created a successful career branding business, worked with international clients, and been featured as a career expert for Forbes, Yahoo Finance, and Glassdoor to name a few. If you're stuck or struggling to become the resume writer or career coach you want to be, you need Melanie to get you there!

Hey, I'm Mel

Award-Winning Resume Expert

Full-Time Entrepreneur

Mentor to New Resume Writers

When I first started in this business, I was so eager to absorb any information I could on how to run a successful resume company. I would look at industry pioneers, stalk their websites, get on their mailing lists and dream of the day I could be seen as an industry leader.

Many times throughout the last 10 years, I have felt isolated in my business.


I have an MBA, but learning about business in a classroom and regurgitating information for a grade is a lot different than running a real business where you depend on your sales performance to eat and feed your family – A LOT DIFFERENT


I was too shy to reach out to the industry giants I admired directly, so I pretty much handled it alone – well... with the help of Google and a few coaches along the way.  


I knew I was good at this and I knew I could do it, so as many times as I’ve cried and wondered what the hell I was doing, I never quit.


After all, something as meaningful as helping people obtain gainful employment can be so fulfilling – but it can be scary to start a new business venture.


I started Mel the Mentor because I know firsthand how challenging it can be to navigate this industry alone. Over the years, I fumbled, scrambled and experimented with my resume business and although I haven’t figured it ALL out, I am proud of my accomplishments. 

Get  support from someone who has lived it…someone who:

  • has mentored new writers to earn $10K+ months in less than 3 years and move from feeling insecure about raising their prices to confidently selling 4-figure executive packages...​
  • gained the respect of industry leaders and was elected to serve on the NRWA board as a resource for new business owners…
  • won a resume writing award (on the first try), has work featured in 4 industry books and featured in several media outlets...
  •  built her own resume business from the ground up over the last 10 years…
  • knows the ins and outs of this industry, has lived it and totally understands your frustrations…
  • is passionate about paying it forward and helping new resume writers figure out their own path in this field.

I now have the tools and strategies I need to compete with the top industry professionals

I sought Melanie Denny's mentorship shortly after quitting my full-time corporate recruiting position and while studying for the NCRW exam.

Before that time, I was not operating at my full potential due to fear and self-doubt concerning running a successful resume writing business.

Melanie truly helps others recognize their unique value as career services providers. She focuses heavily on empowering industry newbies to maximize their self-marketing tools, shift their mindset to build confidence, and gain more exposure through personal branding.

Her entrepreneurial spirit and networking talents serve as a guide for new business owners eager to master the sales process and drive consistent flows of clients in a valuable and authentic way. She is a trusted advisor and resource provider that any resume writer or career coach can partner with to grow their businesses.

Since our mentorship began, I now have the tools and strategies I need to compete with the top industry professionals.
