Master Your Mindset

Truly believe you deserve more so you can ask for more

Before you ask for what you want, you have to believe you deserve it.

Discover how to conquer fear and overcome self-doubt so you can finally earn what you’re worth and live a life you love.
The number one factor in your success is your ability to communicate more clearly and influence others to get things done.


That ability starts with your MINDSET.

Women still earn only 81 cents for every dollar men make

Do you earn what you deserve?

Women hold only 24% of senior roles across the world in 2018

Are you reaching your potential ?

It will take 100 years to close the gender equality gap

Are you ready to shorten that time?

Do any of these statements apply to you?

  • “I’m afraid to speak up in meetings.”
  • “I’ve been in one job/company for a long time and I’m nervous about looking for a new job.”
  • “I’m not sure why I haven’t been promoted yet.”
  • “I want to make a move but I’m scared to give up what I have or take a chance on something new.”
  • “I don’t have enough experience to apply for the job I really want.”
  • “I feel vulnerable when I ask for what I want, even when I think I deserve it.”
  • “I’m afraid I’ll be called ‘bossy’ or ‘too aggressive’ if I ask for what I want.”
  • “I don’t want to be labeled as ‘difficult’ or ‘not a team player’.”
  • “I feel nervous when I have to advocate for myself.”
  • “I wish I could stop taking things so personally.”

You CAN Conquer Fear and Overcome Self-Doubt

It’s easy to feel afraid to speak up.

You don’t want to be called “aggressive” or “bossy.”

You don’t want to be labeled as “difficult” or “not a team player.”

You definitely don’t want to do anything that would risk what you already have.

Do you deserve that raise? Do you deserve that promotion? Do you deserve that new and improved career?

How will you know unless you try?

The only thing standing between you and where you want to be is that inner voice that’s telling you to wait for a magic fairy to reach out to an imaginary perfect job recruiter or your boss who will offer that position to you.

But that inner voice also led you here, so deep down you know you’ve been quiet too long or you’re getting less and less confident.

My Story: From Fearless to Fearful and Back to Fearless

I know a lot about fear. But I took an unusual u-turn to get there.  I spent 18 years at one company. I grew, I changed, I was challenged and I was safe. I reached the point where I was a Vice President and had the coveted corner office! I knew my job like the back of my hand. I did a kick ass job. My bosses said so. My colleagues said so. My clients said so. My paycheck said so. I was at the top of my game.

HOWEVER, the company was acquired, and more than half my peers were fired. I felt unsure and afraid of superiors who imbued the place with a new and quite different culture. I was trying to change who I was to fit in. I was exhausted and completely bummed out. I lost the confidence I once had in spades. I was not Melissa Hereford, who for well over a decade was outgoing and forthright. Guess what? I stayed for 3 more years! Yes, you read that right. Years. I was now too scared to quit because nothing was waiting for me on the other side. So I no longer advanced with my job. If anything, I was sliding backwards.

Something needed to change. And I finally realized what deep down in my soul I wanted to do. My mission in life, my impetus for starting Fearless Mindset, is to make the journey to a fulfilling career and finding what you’re capable of much easier for as many people as possible. After all, I made it to the top. I know how. You can too.

What graduates say:

“This is an an empowering and informative program that gives women the knowledge and strength and confidence and courage to ask for what we want in a way that feels good to us.

I took the class to support and empower myself in a career transition and to get more comfortable and ready for the interviewing and negotiating phase of a new job/career.

Now I don’t feel so alone in the way I have felt about confidence and asking for things in a new job situation.”

- Ronna V.

Project Manager

“This class is my how-to guide for getting past my fear. Before, I could see my fear but I didn’t have the skills to work around it.

The skills that I learned in this class are things I can use right away to stop taking things personally, get my ideas across and to stop my mind going to negative assumptions.

I will set my goals higher and believe that I will achieve them. Instead of falling into my same old habits, I will walk down a different street* and not look back!” (*you’ll learn what walking down a different street means in Module 1!)

- Meghen K.


“I am self-employed and working on creating work/life balance. I found a lot of value in the focus on relationships, emotional intelligence, and how people’s communication styles and needs differ.

Mine is a client-based business, so juggling a lot of different personalities, wants, and needs, plus taking care of myself and what I need, is a continual challenge and a big part of my job.

This class helped me learn specific techniques to shift my mindset under stress and capitalize on my emotional intelligence skills.”

- Lisa J.

Pilates Instructor/Studio Owner

“This class is an in-depth look at shifting your behavior away from limiting beliefs to a mindset of power and confidence. 
It was really helpful to identify ways I sabotage my power when I get triggered! I am super reactionary, so the parts about getting curious and asking questions rather than jumping immediately into fight mode is a tool I will immediately practice!
There are so many effective tools Melissa offers in this course that I will now bring into my professional and personal relationships. 
I think getting curious instead of making assumptions is a fantastic way to gain clarity in difficult situations.”
- Jennifer H.
