Hello There!

I'm Melissa Bauknight

Melissa Bauknight is a multi-passionate entrepreneur, adventurer, mother, wife, and Business Alignment Coach. As a collegiate athlete, she graduated magna cum laude with a BA in Finance and has since earned an applicable Ph.D. in Life. She garnered over 15 years of sales and business development experience in the corporate world working across 6 states and consistently performing in the top 10% of her peers. Having checked many boxes on her life goals list - traveling the world, achieving corporate success, marrying a loving husband, and starting a family, she still felt anxious and incomplete. 
She knew there were untapped parts of her soul longing to be unleashed.
Melissa chose to boldly follow that inner knowledge leaving her corporate career and went on to be in the top 1% of a social impact direct sales company, build a coaching business at The Ripple Connection, and coach over 1,000 women in sales, mindset, and life alignment. She is a living example of her own body of work and is a vision holder for other women to confidently take the leap to make the difference they know they’re here to make.
As a soul whisperer, Melissa ignites heart-led female leaders to embody their purpose and bravely design a business and life on THEIR terms! One of the ways in which she does this is by creating a signature path for women to bring their dream businesses to life. She ensures that the work you do is in alignment with who you are.
Her purpose is to help women break free of the conditioning that keeps them fearful of following their own dreams while creating an abundance of everything - money, flexibility, impact, and time for themselves. As a result, she attracts high-achieving women who are done living life on other people’s terms and are ready to unleash their feminine power.
