WINTER (November – February)
Most business owners crank through this important season, exhausting themselves and driving themselves into energy-debt by replaying the old scripts, and failing to pause and see new opportunities that arise in a swiftly changing marketplace. This is one way we Wise Women burn out in the Winter! In the Academy, we choose easy/lazy ways to increase abundance instead. We leverage the power of the dark season to free ourselves from unseen blocks and patterns, and to activate the new vision that will function better, inspire us more, and drop us into our effortless flow of renewed purpose and abundance.
Clear the 7 Blocks to Wealth Advancement
We address the seven areas we need to clear regularly to keep advancing in abundance. Layer by layer, as we grow in business success, we move through our old ceilings for easeful prosperity. We end up with a renewed vision of the client journey and valuable offerings we will focus on growing.
Claim Your New Vision of Success
In the natural visioning month, we activate the seed of success for the upcoming cycle. Instead of weekly classes, we dive in for a 2-day Visioning Retreat, to see the next level of evolution of our business to create an easeful upgrade of abundance. We claim the clear description of our valuable work, so we can easily speak about it at holiday events, gaining clients and raving fans!
Craft your Irresistible Offer
The visioning will pay off as you use our guidance and template to create an offer that fits your talents, your timing, and your personality, while delivering measurable results to your people. When you focus on the right offer, you create recurring revenue without convincing, defending, or hustling people. Your irresistible offer practically sells itself.
Sell with Ease and Grace
You’ll learn to LOVE sales conversations if you do it the Channel your Genius way. This unique model of holding space for people to commit to working with you will leverage your compassion, your intuition, and your natural connection. No manipulation, lies, or convincing – no way! You will finally find it easy to ask and receive!
SPRING (March – June)
Looking for new clients can be exhausting and time consuming. Wise Women would rather create archetypes, and a fun quiz to do this automatically. The follow-up from the quiz then moves people towards investing with you. You might create several quizzes for different products over the years. We guide you step-by-step through creating a quiz and follow-up, so that in the next season, every time you speak or teach or broadcast, you can add hundreds to your community, and let them choose to become clients!
Design your Client Archetypes
Discovering your Client Archetypes will lift your value as an expert by giving words to your unique approach. Plus, it will spark your enthusiasm for serving your peeps. You can stop serving the difficult people, and draw in only your right-fit clients. People say that this archetype work ALONE is a game-changer for falling in love with their business, and easily courting new clients.
Draft your Quiz
A great quiz attracts new clients 24/7 ongoing! You’ll be guided (and even edited) in writing a heart-opening, deeply moving, brilliant quiz that can go viral. Mellissa helps you craft excellent language for your quiz every step of the way, so it ends up being your pride and joy that draws in new clients to your biz for years to come!
Followup for Easy Sales
After they take your quiz, your peeps feel your expertise, and they trust you. It’s what comes next that turns them into paying clients. The followup results, nurturing emails, and further short surveys to assess their readiness to invest can turn them into your best fit clients who are delighted to pay you handsomely.
Leverage Your Community
You will implement and share your quiz system with the world. A good quiz can even go viral on its own. But you can increase this with ads, with community groups, and more. You may find that your quiz births a Movement around your work! We will look at lots of ways to utilize your archetypes, your quiz, your followup, and your new brand to build community worldwide!
Channel Your Business: Identify the magic words that describe your offering so well that even normal people will understand and be delighted to pay you full price.
Channel Your People: Create a marketing system with a quiz that automatically connects, educates, and enrolls your perfect-fit clients.
Channel Your Course: Create online programs that transmit your wisdom and magic, serving more people and making more money while you work less.

And more… guided content for clearing the blocks, implementing the pieces, and answering your questions.
Oh boy. When I graduated from Stanford University, and then University of San Diego School of Law with an award for Public Interest Advocacy, I never would have imagined that I would end up as a professional Intuitive. But giving birth to Clarise in 2000 blew me open!
Since then, I’ve been walking a path that bridges the worlds. Can I brag for a minute? I’ve provided profound shamanic healing sessions to thousands, with a 98% client-reported success rate. I’m the “secret” of success for world-class designers, artists, and Silicon Valley tech creatives. And I’ve trained over a thousand transitioning professionals how to create their own soul-centered business without losing the respect or revenue they’d spent a lifetime cultivating.
But I’ve also been through some stuff. A radical post-2008 business and land foreclosure, two divorces, and a myriad of tough lessons along the path. My mentors, and the teachings I share here, are what got me through it all.
Now I’ve got an abundant business I love, my 20 acre retreat center home, and an opportunity to help YOU step into your fullest intuitive gifts, your most powerful creative abilities, and your best-fit inspired business. I hope you’ll check me out, take my quiz, and reach out if you’re ready for the clarity, clearing, and connection working with me brings!
Here are some forthright answers to the questions you might have rolling around in your head!
You know because:
1. You’re promising yourself to actually do the work. What you’ll get here in the Academy is ALL the step by step training, the support, the feedback, the clearings, the private sessions, the copy-writing even… and the community support to reach the goals of each class. But if you don’t come to class, don’t post in the group, don’t engage the clearings when you’re stuck, don’t ask questions, don’t receive the support that will be offered you, (if you don’t do the WORK it takes to create a business) you might avoid success. 😉 So show up!
2. This program includes LOTS of support, hands on check-ins, clearings, and even copy-editing!!! We will teach you what to do. We will guide you step-by-step. You’ll have one-on-one sessions every month – both for clearing AND for accountability. You’ll have coaching 24/7 in our private forum. We won’t leave you to do it all on your own like most programs. We won’t hand you off to baby-coaches. You’ll get our expert help and attention, personally, on your material.
I know it’s a big decision to invest in yourself and in growing your business. I’ve done it many times myself. And this “how will I afford it” is always one voice in the mix. But I want to remind you that this is a program that will grow your business and your income. You are paying to be able to make significantly MORE money. Forever. So I encourage you to do a cost benefits sort of analysis. This is not just another modality certification course. This one teaches you to make money. So as you consider this investment, remember that you can make a lot more money when you create the systems I’m about to teach you. I know that other programs that include guidance and feedback from the actual master teacher tend to be $20K and more. I keep my program very affordable because I want to make sure that it’s accessible to those I want to lift up in the world.
The real question might be – how can you afford NOT to finally grow your business? How long do you want to wait before you create financial flow? If you don’t do this, then what is your alternative plan for increasing your revenue so you can eventually STOP asking the question “how am I going to afford this $3k thing?”
For the record, we want to help you get to the place where you NEVER have to worry about spending $3K again.
If you made it this far, yah. Probably. Here’s who the Academy is designed for.
In summary, this program is for you if you’ve got transformative work pouring through that must reach the world. It’s for you if you need to do business in compassion and integrity – not business “as usual.” It’s for you if you want to partner with spirit in creating prosperity and impact. It’s for you if you walk in both worlds. It’s for you if you are a bridge between the world of meaning and the “real” world. It’s for you if you’re ready to finally grow into a more easeful prosperous way of giving this world your best.
It’s designed for Wise Womxn. That includes folks who identify as women. It also includes other-identifying folks who are happy to hang in a woman-centered space. Wise Women here are usually over 40. But we also welcome peeps who are younger, but grounded experienced “old souls” who love hanging out with a more mature clan.
Unlike most programs, the Academy includes direct access to the master teacher (Mellissa) along with high-expertise coaches and support people. With most programs any coaching you get comes from lightly-trained people who have little experience. The master coach almost NEVER has their eyes on your work.
Here, Mellissa answers your individual questions anytime in the private forum, and has her eyes on your work to suggest strategy, copy, and brilliant ideas directly to you in your privately shared google doc. She puts your work into magnetic magic words you can use throughout your marketing and website. Her downloads, copywriting, and naming brilliance are something that people pay $2K/hour to receive, and you get it included in your $750/month program along with all the rest!
Private Sessions too! You have accountability sessions every month with Elyna who has expertise in helping you stay on track and keep making progress. AND you get a private clearing with Mellissa each month as a “tune-up” session with audio recorded report that people find priceless in staying clear in biz and life.
We provide so much more attention than any other program we’ve heard of, without paying for high end coaching at the $25K level or above.
Our LIVE weekly classes happen Thursdays at 12pm PST. They happen every week throughout the full year, except for December and July when we offer a 2-day virtual retreat instead, to provide a change and account for holidays. The weekly class is one hour long. No more, no less. One hour. In that hour, we enjoy a palpable clearing and alignment exercise in the first 10-15 minutes, leveraging the incredible power of our group of channels from all over the world. Then we usually teach or share something for 20-40 minutes. Sometimes we do full on coaching the whole time. We are starting to run the classes like this: First Thursday is Mellissa teaching class. Second Thursday is Elyna coaching through the implementation sprint. Third Thursday is Mellissa leading a clearing or Transmission to get us through the blocks to the implementation sprint. Fourth Thursday is Mellissa or Elyna coaching. We often have 30-40 people on the call on any weekly class, which is hosted on Zoom. People tend to show up for the classes because honestly they are fun and the clearing leaves us all feeling so much lighter and better! You will also have full access to the Wisdom Mentorship calls which happen the First and Third Tuesdays of every month at noon pacific time. These calls share the mystery school teachings and clearings that keep us all in the flow of abundance. Many Business Academy students participate in these as well as the Thursday calls.
Ugh. I must say, I’ve also spent money in the past that I wish I could get back. I’ve invested in online courses that ended up being a file folder of numbered audio tracks. Boring. Dumb. Disappointing.
I’ve invested in teachers who tried to make me do it THEIR way which didn’t fit my divine path. Nope.
One reason I created this Academy is that sensitive peeps like us need regular clearings and deep support to stay open enough to take easy action in the real world. So it may be that you simply had more of a muggle coach who didn’t know how to work with someone as deep as you. They might have been more of an analytical “follow my system” person. I’m not that. I teach you to create your own unique system to fit your own unique gifts. I show you my systems, and I show you many options for creating your own. But overall I say: Trust your gut. You’re an intuitive. Sign up when you are a Resonant Yes. I trust you.
And I’m right here to answer any questions you have. Email me. Let’s talk about it. If I’m not the right mentor for you, I am happy to help you find the right support. No pressure. I just want you to do what your soul came here to do, so my kids have a better world to live in. If you’ve been injured by teachers in the past, I just want to say thank you for being open anyway. Thank you for considering getting help anyway. We all need help to do this thing. Even we psychic business lawyers need help when it comes to creating our own soul’s biz. You’re not alone.
If you hate the layout or whatever, you have 2 weeks to ask for a refund and leave. Otherwise, you are committing to four months in the Academy to start. That’s because it takes a few months to feel the full benefit of the private sessions, the new systems, and create the results you want! After the first 4 months, you get to continue month to month and can leave until you let us know you’re exiting the program. Most of our students stay in the Academy for a year or longer, because the benefits are HUGE, and they get the results they didn’t get in other programs. Every journey through the monthly subjects is an upgrade in your business, your revenue, and your power. And this community is so wonderfully supportive, many stay in for years!
