Melinda's grandmother was the first to spot her budding entrepreneurial career: "Your disruptive", she told the 5-year-old Melinda after she earned her first $100 selling door-to-door with her black lab.
At 22, she joined the Times of London as a media and financial correspondent, before moving to the Financial Times to launch and host daily TV business shows for CNBC in Europe and Asia. Her TV career spanned the BBC, ABC News and NBC. Melinda is also a single mom with two great kids. A meditation and yoga devotee, she believes personal growth and lifelong learning is vital to succeed in entrepreneurship.
