How Melanie Duncan Went from a Successful Ecommerce Biz to Becoming a Pinterest and Business Expert

Before We Get Started – Contest Alert!

Citrix Online (our loyal sponsor of RISE) reached out to me and asked me if I wanted to give away a custom-engraved, brand spankin’ new, The Rise To The Top autographed iPad. I was all like…yeah! So, I have this autographed iPad and it is going to one of you. Here is how it works.

Between now and March 18th, to enter the giveaway simply TWEET your answer to this question (use hashtags #RISEfreeipad and #gotomeeting):

So, it’s freakin’ winter and it sucks. If you could host a meeting ANYWHERE using GoToMeeting, where would it be AND WHY?

Make sure to use the #RISEfreeipad and #gotomeeting hashtags! And you can do it as many times as you want!

Looking forward to hooking someone up. Uncle David loves you.

Now Back to Today’s Episode

I’ve got something else cool for you in lucky episode #350. I tracked down my good friend Melanie Duncan to come on the show and spill the beans on how she went from a successful eCommerce store owner to breaking into the mediapreneur (expert/advice) industry.

In short, Melanie had a successful online store (we are talking 7 figures) but shifted her attention to become an advice expert to serve female entrepreneurs and had a HUGE hit with her course Power of Pinning (affiliate).

In today’s show, she is super open about her struggles, what she got right, and advice for mediapreneurs like you. And we also get into a great discussion about creating a successful online course.

Watch/Listen below and make SURE to leave a comment below the episode.

I use RISE partner Wistia for video hosting because they rock. Check ‘em out.

    Awesome, dude, awesome. Melanie sounds really down to earth and finally a story that sounds so much more in touch with reality… I’m still in the “banging my head against the wall” phase, so it’s good to know It’s (hopefully) not because i’m an idiot haha.

    • David Siteman Garland

      Absolutely, hope you get that head off the wall ;)
