Hey there. I’m Mel Savage


I’m an ex-Fortune 500 Exec turned Corporate Career Strategist.  I’ve created the ultimate mash-up of coaching and career planning that empowers you to create a career you love.

Yes.  It’s true.  I’m special.

It would be easy for me to think that I’m not. A small town Canadian gal, with nothing more than a willingness to learn, and a determination to do whatever needs to be done.

That’s how I built my life and my career.

I got my first job when I was 14 (at the Tim Horton’s up the street) and I’ve been working ever since. My first adult job was at a small Ad Agency. My official title was called ‘Girl Friday’ (oh so Mad Men).

I delivered mail, set up meetings and was the only person in the office who knew how to work a computer, which made me the go-to-gal.

My willingness to dive in and try new things served me well.  And it continued. Over the next 20 years I worked my way up from Canadian Girl Friday to being a Head of Marketing in the UK in one of the biggest Food Service companies in the world, to running my own Career Coaching business where I’ve had Clients from Tokyo to Toronto.

And in that time, I made 1000s of mistakes, missteps and outright failures.

I had some horrible bosses.  I freaked out. I took things personally.  I played the victim and the blame game.

I also had amazing mentors and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.  I won awards. Met inspirational people. Travelled. Grew. And continued to learn.

Did I think any of that was possible when I started out? No freakin’ way. Not a chance. Every career move scared the crap out of me. I was sure I’d eventually be discovered as the uber imposter I was.

Until one day, I had enough. I was tired of not believing in myself. Of beating the crap out of myself. I was tired of holding myself back and playing it safe.

So I quit my soul-sucking, high-paying Corporate gig at 46 to start my own Career Coaching business. Did I know what I was doing? Absolutely not.  Was I sure I’d be successful? No way.

But I had faith in me. I learned a ton. I had transferable skills  It just took me a minute to figure out what those were. But, I always knew I could do whatever I set my mind to. I’d figure it out as a went along.

And that’s what I did. That’s what I’m doing.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.  

The second best time is now.


I’m not perfect.  I don’t have all the answers.

I have crappy days.  I still have bouts of fear and self-doubt, just like every other person on the planet.

My story isn’t unique. And I didn’t start off thinking I was special. It took me years to realize that I can do things in my own uniquely brilliant, slightly dysfunctional way.  No more putting up with BS situations and people that suck up my energy.

And that no matter what, everything is always going to be OK. I got this.  

And so do you.

My name is Mel Savage and my commitment is to help you build a career you love.

I’m very grateful to be able to make a living doing something I love.  I did the work to figure out what that was and how to make it real.
