Welcome to Go-To Gal, the podcast to help you build a profitable personal brand. Hi, I'm Jaclyn, and I am on a mission to help gals, just like you, go from best-kept secret to becoming the go-to gal in your space. This show is for experts and aspiring experts, authors, speakers, coaches, consultants, and service providers. If you are ready to overcome self-doubt, stand out from the crowd, and make bank by growing your brand, you are in the right place.



Here at Go-To Gal, we believe in grace over guilt, connection and collaboration, intention over doing all the things, hugs over handshakes, vulnerability over small talk, generosity and abundance, strategy over throwing spaghetti at the wall, imperfect leaps over imperfect action, more on that to come, empowerment over competition, and courage over fear.



And I guess I should introduce myself, too. I'm Jaclyn Mellone. I'm your host here. I'm also a coach, strategist, speaker, wife, and mom of a kindergartner and a toddler I've bribed to be quiet in their room right now. I built my not-so-little anymore empire from my living room here in Rochester, New York. I've spent years building personal brands behind the scenes, doing the research, building my own brand on accident at first, and figuring out what it really takes. Now I've been helping experts of all types, from well-known influencers to the service provider next door, and I'm so excited to help you.



Here on this show, I'm gonna be sharing my best strategies and insights, my clients, and my connections with you so that you can see what it really takes to build a profitable personal brand. You can expect a mix of interviews, chit-chats with experts, on-air coaching calls, and solo shows as well. We're gonna be digging into marketing and brand strategies, how to get known, how to leverage your personal brand to build your business, and of course, the mindset of becoming the go-to gal from the inside out.



Because let's be real, building a personal brand is hella personal.



Becoming the go-to gal is equal parts personal development, strategy, and execution. Here on the show, we're gonna be exploring the personal development and the strategy, but it is up to you to take action, or as I like to say, imperfect leaps.



Listen, you are an expert. You have been doing some amazing things and you have so much to be grateful for, but you are ready for more.



Gratitude is at the core of everything we do here, so as we kick off this podcast, I want this to be your new mantra.



Repeat after me:

I'm insanely grateful for everything I have and ready for more.



That's right. Gratitude and desire don't have to be mutually exclusive, so whether you're a sought-after expert or still dreaming of becoming that go-to gal, you want more.



You are ready for more...and I'm here to help.



I'm so excited to be a part of your journey.

Great show I love the actionable tips

I just listened to the interview with Selena Soo and I’m blown away by the amount of value they shared on the episode. This isn’t just listening to how someone else grew their business but they give real steps on how you can do it it too.

Fulfilling Promises & Taking Action!

Thank you for making me TAKE ACTION! While listening to Episode 3 of Go To Gal where Nathan Berry was the guest. Nathan was talking about the journey of his first eBook and how much he was wanting to make off that eBook. And the numbers stuck with me...

In August 2018 I launched an eBook, “Establishing Math Workshop in the Middle Grades”, that I was super proud of and was so elated to have out there for others. Upon its launch I was super pleased that it even sold much less about 50 times in the first month with an email list of around 5k.

Come January 2019 the sales had died down. I was listening to the episode on the way home from a conference that I had presented & exhibited at, and actually sold the first PRINT COPY of that book. It was surreal that someone wanted that information SO MUCH they would buy the actual book.

So Nathan mentioned how we have to fulfill our promises and I knew my book could fulfill so much for teachers if I just told them about it. I opened up the notes app on my phone right then and there and started typing out an email. Never mind the fact that I was riding home from this conference and it was 9pm. Copied it on over to ConvertKit and added links all on my phone and scheduled it to go out the next morning.

When I woke up I woke up to sales! What? Where had these people been for the last 6 months? What made this email different? I even made a Instagram & Facebook post about the feeling of selling my first published book and it made it sell even more!

Within the one week from the sending of that email I earned almost $700 in sales on the eBook alone. That was more than I had earned to date!

All because of an interview with Nathan Berry where I felt that I was chilling and drinking my hot cocoa with you. Thank you SO VERY MUCH!
