#134: Reflect, Celebrate, Onward

Listen Now:

On this special episode, Melissa and her husband Derek take a look back at the origin story of Velocity Work and how it intertwined with major events in their personal lives.

Melissa reflects on what it looked like to leave the security of a job with benefits in order to move Velocity Work forward and how the questions, what can I do, and how I provide value now changed the trajectory of the company.

Derek offers insight all his own. With a career spent working in start-ups, business growth and marketing, he knows first hand the difference between having an idea for a business and dialing that dream into reality.
