“I support you in shifting your drive from stuck to unstoppable - because how we do one thing, is how we do all things!” - Melissa Kirkpatrick

Melissa Kirkpatrick is a Transformational Coach and Motivational Speaker. She’s been featured in Cincy Magazine , CincyChic online magazine and is the author of the impactful self-help book 5 Steps to Your Own D.R.I.V.E.

Melissa offers one-on-one services, motivational speaking and hands-on workshops, allowing individuals and teams to shift their drive from stuck  to unstoppable.

Melissa helps individuals visualize a bigger picture, tap into what’s holding them back and unlock the ability to achieve what they truly desire.

Clients gain clarity and focus towards their goals with excitement and a solid plan, while releasing any doubt, negativity or confusion that holds them back.

Business professionals learn how to use their passion to achieve better business results as an individual and as a leader. Professionals also learn how to incorporate their own unique flair into their business and use it to excite and appeal to their team and customers - leading to more sales, production, and overall growth and expansion.

Business teams learn through a workshop environment on ways to communicate, identify stumbling blocks, create harmony, and effectively work together.



I've always loved teaching others, but I didn't realize that until a little later in life. So, at the age of thirty, I began the journey as a non-traditional college student to pursue my passion for teaching and supporting others in education as a full time career. 

As a teacher, I truly excelled at the art of education -- adapting to a variety of personalities and skill sets -- so I could effectively deliver my lessons and messages to all.  

During this time, my family and I got the opportunity to own and operate golf courses. I left the teaching position to embrace this new adventure. 

My love for learning and confidence in teaching expanded as I taught myself the game of golf in my forties and soon after, I began teaching others how to play. I discovered how we show up on the golf course is typically how we show up in life — the birth of “Find Your Own DRIVE”.

Business ownership led to a major transformation for me — some good, some bad, and sadly some ugly. At the ugliest, I allowed all forms of addiction to take over and downward spiral many other aspects of my life.  

But luckily, thanks to a major "a-ha" moment, I realized I was headed in the wrong direction. That's when I, yet again, taught myself something new to get back on course. My awareness of how far I had spiraled away from my passion and purpose lead me to find my own DRIVE and find the path back to my desires..

Today, I use my education and life experiences to help others find their way back to the path of their desires through the inherent connection between navigating the game of business and the game of life. 

With my unique curriculum and coaching system, I help to support, motivate and encourage mindfulness so goals can be met both personal and professional all from a place of joy and happiness. 

From this I am now supporting individuals as well as businesses with motivational talks and speaking engagements along with hands on workshops that allow teams and members to find their drive from stuck to unstoppable — because how we do one thing is how we do all things!

Client Testimonial:

If you have thought about hiring a coach but wondered if it would be worth it, let me tell you about the past 5 months I have worked with Melissa.

I was stuck, stressed and a little paralyzed with fear. I had many different paths to choose from as I moved forward. Melissa absolutely helped me shine light into my choices so I could feel confident on the path I was choosing. 

Next we laid out a road map that included what i wanted to pay myself, what my work life balance would look like, and identified my dream client. 

Today I am standing in my power like never before and I am well on my way to walking around in this vision we set out for me. 

She is kind but firm when needed, leads with her heart and absolutely has helped me to flip the narrative on my situation when needed. 
Do your life a favor and hire Melissa!
