Hello There!

I'm Melissa Bauknight

I am a vision and business coach, the founder of The Ripple Connection, and an Executive Director with Beautycounter. I'm committed to helping women come alive and nurture their WHOLE selves! 

I've spent 15 years working as an award-winning sales rep, predominantly in medical device sales.

My wake-up call came when I became a new mom and attempted to "do it all" - working full time while building a side business and getting completely rocked by motherhood. 

I knew there had to be a better way to live, so I retired from my corporate career and learned how to integrate my feminine energy. 

The women I work with want to make 6 figures while making a difference in the world. Beneath that, she holds a desire for flexibility in her schedule, freedom to explore her creativity, to work in a way that feels aligned with her purpose and values, and to feel proud of what she’s doing. 

She's committed to having an abundance of everything - time, money, community, love, and impact. She wants to trust herself to make decisions, Know and listen to her intuition, manifest miracles regularly, and no longer live in fear or overwhelm. She desires to have a community of women in a similar season of life - making bold moves and breaking free of the stories holding them back. 

She desires to choose herself. To focus on her own needs. She desires to live inspired. 

My name is Melissa Bauknight, and I guide heart-led, high-achieving women to go from being burnt-out to become a hell YES to a life they love to live.

For the ambitious woman ready to leap into her purpose bravely, The Ripple Connection is a sisterhood that helps you create your powerful life with ease, flow, and confidence because TRC knows what it takes to balance it all!

1:1 Coaching

This is designed for the woman who's ready to commit to a plan to bring her business vision to life. She has a full plate already and therefore wants a high level of accountability, support, and flexibility.


Over the last 6+ years, I have grown a team of around 400 people while reaching the top rank of the company. With this experience plus my 16 years of professional sales expertise, I guide others on how to build their own successful network marketing businesses through connection, focused action, and commitment to their highest vision.
