Open to Opportunity (Melissa Guller)

  • Episode #60

For entrepreneur and course creator Melissa Guller, making it isn’t always about a bigger number. It’s about reaching for what makes us happy and doing work we enjoy. And those things will continue changing and evolving. Just keep saying “yes” to more.

Welcome to Making It! This weekly show explores the lives and stories of entrepreneurs as they share their unique perspectives on their success and the path to making it. 

Melissa Guller is the founder of Wit & Wire, a company that helps creators earn money online doing work they love.

“There’s an element of challenge that comes when we try something new, but really, it’s just that you are a beginner, and you haven’t yet developed the skills to become proficient the way that others have.”
