Hi, I’m Melanie Colling, Founder of Purpose Driven Projects, co-founder of Experts On Air - Podcast Booking Agency, host of the Business Connections Podcast and Amazon International best-selling co-author of ‘You Are A Genius’.
I'm an entrepreneur, mum of 1, avid podcast listener, voracious business book reader, I love meeting new people and learning about what they do and why they do it and I just can't help connecting people and having fun!
I am passionate about helping fellow business leaders and experts succeed by helping them to accelerate their businesses to the next level through collaboration to become leaders in their field, industry and/or niche.
I believe entrepreneurs will make the change in the world we want to see and need, not governments. So I am committed to supporting and connecting entrepreneurs to empower change! This is why I get up every morning!
In my ‘previous life’ I built a career in IT as an industry certified Project Management professional. I worked for Fortune 500 companies such as IBM and HP as well as leading Australian organisations like NAB, Telstra, Medibank, BP Oil, Origin Energy and Newcrest Mining to name a few.
Whilst I enjoyed working on multi-million dollar, innovative projects and with some amazing people I felt I was not fulfilling my full potential and impacting the world in the way I wanted to.
I escaped the corporate world in 2016 and moved to Bali with my family for 7 months, where I hosted and facilitated a Business Accelerator program for entrepreneurs and business leaders following the Wealth Dynamics framework.
And ever since I have been helping entrepreneurs, business owners and leaders to accelerate their businesses through project leadership, connection and collaboration. I love it!
My advice to others on the business journey is to know yourself inside out, choose the right vehicle, surround yourself with like minded people, don’t do it alone - collaborate & partner and get a mentor!
