About Melanie Patrick, MBA

Roadmaps for business & life

My talent is business plans - original, custom, designed for small business owners trying to "do it all". 

Figuring out delegation, job descriptions, financials, Quickbooks and invoicing... every step along the way.

Where, How & With Who?

With a degree from UC Berkeley in Resources, what else to do but open a restaurant in a Northern California town? Turned into a 20 year adventure. Finished a MBA when I sold the restaurant to work in Silicon Valley. Traveled to Wisconsin to learn about co-ops and decided I had a pretty wide view to help others figure out their way.
