Welcome to Purpose + Profit, a coaching program for leaders who are looking to create and launch a social impact program, initiative, career or business.

Incorporating the guidance, training and mentorship of experts from across sectors, Purpose + Profits is a completely new and innovative coaching and training program for international development professionals, nonprofit leaders, educators, coaches, entrepreneurs, mediators, therapists, foundation officers, community-based leaders, creatives, and change agents of all kinds.
Why Purpose + Profit
Do you believe that purpose and profit don’t go together? Perhaps you wonder if it's possible for purpose and profit to go together?
I get it, I’ve been there. I used to be convinced of this. After ten years of working in the nonprofit sector I had jobs time and time again that felt like they really made a difference but left me overworked, underpaid, and burnt out. It wasn't until 2015, when I decided to move across the world and finally launch my dream business for social impact, Inner Peacebuilding, that I finally saw results.
My name is Melaina and I’m a coach and impact entrepreneur.
I used to believe that I was destined to struggle financially while doing what I loved, OR resign myself to a job that paid great but wasn’t fulfilling. I started out early in my career at a non-profit consulting firm, bought myself a bunch of power suits, and told myself THIS was the way to make a living.
There was only one problem: I was miserable. The job wasn’t what I signed up for, and I wasn’t actually making an impact. Then the thing that everyone dreads happened…I got laid off. I had a mini-breakdown. And then, after a lot of crying and questioning I made the best decision of my life: I hired my first coach.
My coach helped me get clarity on the impact I truly wanted to have in the world, and how I wanted to get there. Six months later I was living in Ecuador working for indigenous rights and reporting on environmental impacts in the Amazon. One year later I received exactly what I had set my mind to: a fully-paid fellowship for graduate school to study Peace, Conflict, and Security from Rotary International.
Then I took the leap.
I hired another coach and joined a coach-training program. I built and launched my website in two weeks. Within 1 month I had my first client. Within 3 months I had 15 people enrolled in my group program and at 6 months I had my highest paying month of my life.
I had finally proven that what I thought was impossible, was absolutely possible and more than that, fulfilling.
But I didn't stop there. I saw my business and impact continue to grow. I've now worked with over 125 social impact leaders and organizations across the globe. In the last year I gave workshops and trainings for leaders at the World Bank, the Rotary Presidential Peace Conference, and the U.S. Department of Energy. My company was invited to participate in Creative Startups, the world's foremost business accelerator for creative companies. I traveled to 6 countries in 2017, and moved to my dream city, fulfilling on my goal to run on the beach every morning. Now I serve as a mentor coach in two of the world's top coach training programs, and wake up every day excited to support my trainees and clients grow sustainable businesses while creating personal and global transformation.
If I can do it, so can you.
Are you ready to up your impact and make a living doing something you absolutely love? Join me!
Hiring Melaina was a genius move for me. She helped me take my business vision from the planning stages in the clouds and give it feet on the ground with practical action steps that created immediate results. In a matter of days, I was opening doors and creating opportunities to express my vision in the real world. I went from paralyzed with indecision to moving forward in trust and confidence. Melaina possesses a rare ability to dance seamlessly through the roles of coach, consultant and friend on purpose, with grace and ease, in a way that brings her client maximum benefit in the moment. Her confidence in her work, and in me as her client, are extremely infectious. With Melaina in your corner, you are bound to be a winner, produce results quickly and become the person you need to be to live the life you desire. Thank you, Melaina, for being a rock, a guiding light, and the wind in my sails all at the same time!
Darlene Smoker, Life Coach
Let me tell you, Melaina can dive in deep! I tend to live a little bit “out there” and she’s able to meet me right where I am and ground me wherever I happen to be. Not only is Melaina calm, comforting, and encouraging, she can get me to step through my fears by embracing them and understanding why they’re around in the first place. Working with Melaina quickly shed light on new sides of myself and now I’m able to show up in the world as a more complete, more authentic version of myself. If you’re looking for some inner peace, she’s your guide!

Melaina is a top-notch coach who can often see what we cannot in our own situations. She has helped me through both her coaching support (for moving through doubt and limiting beliefs) and her consulting (for what to do in starting a business, the actions to take) She has helped me to get my very own, and first, business off to a running start. I’ve already made money from what she’s taught me and how she has helped me! She is the one who showed me that I had in fact developed several marketable skills, which has led me to where I am today; running my own Virtual Assistant business! She listens intently, and patiently, and WILL bring you concrete results whether you want to start a business or work through limiting beliefs. That very first discovery call was so scary (AND spending the money! lol) but I have no regrets. I wouldn’t be where I am today if I hadn’t worked with her.
I have always known Melaina to be a person of great skill and integrity. Her coaching work, however, is truly inspiring. She was able to support me with great intuition and dexterity. With her help I had a powerful breakthrough that I was able to apply immediately to my life and work.

Working with Melaina has been a deep transformational process thus far. Before working with Melaina, I felt scattered while trying to do this inner work solely on my own and grow a business. When Melaina stepped in, I saw a huge shift in my being. It was as if a veil had been lifted and I was now able to see the possibility.Since working together, I'm able to make sense of how and why certain feelings come up for me. I'm kicking fear to the curb and I'm doing it with confidence. With Melaina as my coach, I feel deeply supported in all aspects of my life. Our work together has allowed for expansion in both, my personal and my professional life. Melaina's well-rounded coaching comes from such a genuine space. She doesn't just listen to you, she hears you. I'm grateful to have her by my side and continue down this path with her on my team!
Danielle Waldman, Personal Development & Empowerment Coach
It is not too often that we work with someone that dedicates the attention we need in order to pursue our own greatness. Working with Melaina, I have been honored that she took the time to focus on my inner strengths and qualities and supported me to bring those to the surface. Sometimes these inner workings are made up of matter that I would rather not deal with, but when I had Melaina encouraging me, and by my side, I became more willing to explore the deeper parts of myself. Alongside Melaina, I have dredged up emotions, feelings, and intentions that have carried me on a path of more clarity, courageousness, and self-assuredness.
Raquel Wigginton, Educator
Working with Melaina was entirely inspiring. Having never experienced coaching before, I didn’t know what to expect. She knew exactly what questions to ask in order to encourage me to find my own answers. I felt both incredibly supported and wonderfully challenged. While maintaining objectivity throughout, Melaina was able to capture and respond to my input with a level of enthusiasm that made me feel celebrated and heard. I now feel very aware and totally motivated to pursue my goals. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
