055: Melissa Camilleri – Massive Success – Achieved
Today we are going to revisit one of my favorite interviews from Six Figure Side Gig Podcast, with Melissa Camilleri. Since recording this interview with Melissa, her start-up side gig has achieved massive success. Initially the goal was to create a form of revenue to assist deserving students in obtaining a college education. What has evolved is a six figure full time business that has garnered the attention of celebrities such as Cameron Diaz, who mentioned Melisa’s business (Compliment), in her blog. Melissa’s unique combination of selling jewelry accompanied by a personal compliment in the packaging with each piece has helped her raise more than $10,000 for scholarships that have been awarded, in a very short amount of time. From the start of her business Melissa utilized social media, specifically Instagram. As of today @ShopCompliment on Instagram has more than 34,000 followers, all achieved organically.
All of that and more on today’s episode of The Six Figure Side Gig.
