Hi, I'm Melissa Eick!
(pronounced "ike" :) )
I'm a nonprofit co-founder / fundraising expert / human trafficking activist / attorney / author / speaker / coach.
I'm super passionate about helping you live your most impactful life—and I know that you could face a lot of challenges on your journey!
I'm dedicated to helping you make a plan to overcome obstacles by listening to your story and pulling from my own lived experience.
Q & A!
Interview with Melissa
1. What are your go-to self-care activities?
I need to laugh every day, so I might rewatch an episode of Parks & Rec or The Office. A change of scenery—like going to a coffee shop or sitting outside for lunch—works wonders for me! Painting (poorly) (#nojudgment) and helps me relax and stay creative, without the pressure of perfection.
2. How did you discover this passion for helping others make their impact?
I'm pretty sure I've always been this way, but I really realized it in law school. Whenever I had the chance to talk to other students about the challenges they faced and help find solutions or encourage them in their goals, I found it so rewarding.
3. What are your current writing projects?
I'm working on a book about my Margin Makers method that I plan to publish in 2023. I also have a few E-books in the works! One will help people make the most of their weekends and another will help people make a practical difference in the world!
I've also been working on a memoir for a few years! I'm really excited about that! It's about all the life events—big and small—that led me to making a difference as a nonprofit co-founder and anti-human trafficking activist today. That project is ongoing because more events have unfolded that need to be added! But I think I've reached a good stopping point for this phase of life so I can finalize that book soon!
