Melanie Richards never knew she had the entrepreneurial spirit until it just…happened. She grew up learning from the best. Raised by a single mother who worked her way from an entry level data entry position to president of the company, and a grandfather who vowed to serve and protect in the Minnesota Patrol. She followed in her grandfather’s steps by protecting and serving as a corrections officer. She tried with all her power to protect women who were victims of violence, and children who were shuffled through the juvenile system. With marriage near, and the stress of her job heavy, Melanie decided to carve another path. With the lessons she learned watching her mother, Melanie started an airbrush tanning business with her dog and a van (“the girls”). What happens after that takes focus, drive, energy, and risk. You’ll love the story of Melanie Richards, and it will make you look at Edina’s GoGlow with a new appreciation. Listen to episode 21 of Advice Givers!
