Melissa Burke, is a writer born from a fifteen year sales career with Fortune 500 companies. Throughout my sales career, she thrived on opportunities to employ persuasive writing techniques, developing a number of successful marketing campaigns adopted by employers.

In 2008, she made her break from the corporate world to pursue writing. Upon discovering an almost unhealthy zeal for research, it became obvious that merging persuasive writing and research was her career destination. A one year persuasive writing course led her to discover grant writing and God provided the opportunity.

Melissa has known our CEO while they both worked in corporate America for fortun 500 companies. Melissa says, she is truly blessed to do what she loves while contributing to great non-profit missions.

Grant proposals go far beyond filling in the blanks. A winning grant proposal skillfully tells a compelling story that conveys the passion of your mission. The carefully selected audience shares in your philanthropic focus, has the means to fulfill the request and becomes so invested in the story that they are moved to action. 

Today's economy is causing foundations and corporations to be much more selective in their grant funding. Now, more than ever, non-profit organizations need a dedicated grant writer with talent and passion. My company name tells my story....I am Writing to Win!

I'm excited to be here and offer my expertise. We have 3 hours to introduce the basics and answer your questions in our intense GET FUNDED FROM THE MOTOR CITY & GRANT WRITING WORKSHOP. 

 I hold multiple master’s degrees in computer information systems management, education instruction technology, mathematics and finance and marketing. I am one that is diveresly skilled and multi-talented to the team. I am committed to teach you how to excel with technology in your businesses.

When I first started, I was viewed as a nimwick, I’did not knew nothing about a balance sheet, I just wanted to keep all my money and spend it when I got it.  I didn’t have a business plan and surely didn’t have any grants!  I didn’t understand the effectiveness of a business plan and I could not understand why my vision of my personal success was not enough to ensure success.  

My gender and skin color had no baring on the fact, I wasn’t versed even in the daily operations and fundamentals of running and managing a successful business.  For me, I wasted valuable time learning the do nots of entrepreneurship than the absolute dos.  
Before determining what your vision statement is going to be, you need to understand what it is not. It should not be confused with a mission statement.
Those statements are in the “right now” present-based and designed to convey a sense of why your company exists in the first place. Where as Vision statements are future-based and are meant to inspire and give direction to your employees and yourself rather than to customers. A mission statement answers the question, "Why does my business exist?"
We can all agree the most important part of running a business is to make money to grow your business and bring in revenue that sustains your particular business. Document everything money matters, basically keep financial records and incorporate an accounting system for all costs, assets, and transactions.

You must have a product that sells, I’m here to speak candidly. We must be sure to have credible products and services in our businesses because having a credible product or service is good and all, but if you don’t have an effective marketing strategy to make your company and products visible having visibility to the your target audience; your new business will suffer. Without market presence and no visibility, you have no revenue, no revenue means no stability, no stability means no growth.
