Description

Have you discovered a passion that you would like to pursue but are unsure how to go do it? Are you unhappy with your current career and ready for a life change? Learn what triggered Melissa James to leave her successful twenty year corporate career to begin a passion project she discovered as a result of getting a newborn German Shepherd.  She walks through the steps she took to create her business from scratch and how she accidentally discovered what feeds her soul on a daily basis. 

Melissa James
Melissa James grew up on Long Island and developed a real passion for cooking as her father owned restaurants but after a semester in culinary school she quickly realized cooking was not her path. Instead, Melissa dove straight into a corporate path becoming a senior insurance agent with AllState for 20 years.

However after becoming the owner of a tenacious German Shepherd puppy combined with the wear and tear of a high-powered corporate life, Melissa left it all behind to begin her own dog training business called Warrior Paws.

She is the lucky wife of a military veteran and fur mom to 5 dogs.
