A few of my personal pillars are inner growth [spiritual, mental, & emotional], transparency, authentic community, and meaningful work. I believe my outward success only comes from My Source above. I’m only creative because He is my Creator. I’m only strategic because I serve The Strategist. I’m committed to letting the world know that you are never too far to be redeemed by God. Jesus paid the price for you to be free completely [John 8:36]. 

Check out my testimony of redemption on my Youtube channel – My Rough Draft with Melanie Christina

Now, I also believe that this Great God has also called you to be great in your career and business! He has also called us to WORK as unto Him [Colossians 3:23]. We need your prayers AND your strategy. You can be creative AND professional. You can excel in your career AND your business. So, I help professionals, entrepreneurs, and businesses bring meaning back to their work! I help them launch & manage their careers & businesses through professional training/development, team-building, project and operations management, and consulting! That’s right! So, if you need help with your career and business, check out my services here

WHY MY ROUGH DRAFT? 

A working progress = working while progressing

A rough draft is a raw, incomplete, & flawed version of our thoughts. It has the potential to be a masterpiece, but it requires lots of refining & editing. Likewise in this life, we want the masterpiece of a successful life without embracing our rough draft seasons. But God is more interested in being your life-long Editor than your one-hit wonder. 

My Rough Draft is about understanding that God can do more with your less. He can do more with your shortcomings & lack than He can with your mirage of false success. He has given you everything you need to start now. So together as a community, we allow Him to exceed our expectations as we make the daily decision to be obedient to His refining. The process can be hard. But, in the end, we’ll be His best-sellers. Join us on the journey!

a minute with mel

You can do both. 

You can have a fulfilling career AND a fulfilling business. You can love God AND live a purpose-filled, enjoyable life. You can set boundaries AND love others well. You can do ministry with humility and be in business with prosperity. We need both. We need your inspiration AND your practical skill sets. We need your strengths and your weaknesses.  We need your motivation and your vulnerability. We need your past story and your future dreams. We need you on your knees in prayer and about your business in the boardroom.   

The question isn’t IF/OR. The sweet spot is finding the balance in both.
