A bit about our guest:

After struggling with my own mental health and then losing my dad to suicide it was time to do something about the lack of mental health resources in Wisconsin. The Butterfly Path is a mental health nonprofit helping the Western Wisconsin/Twin Cities communities find the resources they are looking for to improve their mental health. It could be therapists in specific counties, a voice advocating for more mental health resources, or working with counseling services to fund sessions when their clients’ insurance doesn’t cover them. We also are working on networking with other businesses and organizations to collaborate where we can make a positive impact. We have funded over $40,000 in therapy sessions and have guided many individuals to mental health resources in our area. I believe that even one therapy session can help someone feel human again and that they are not alone in their journey.

In 2009 Melissa Rose started her business, The Dancing House  in the basement of her home. There she taught the art of dance to students of all ages while her babies were right along with her in the pack and play.  With passion, resilience, and tenacity - she created a business that has become "The Highlight of Your Week" for her tribe, her team and her community.  

Along with running a successful brick and mortar business and an online dance membership called Dance on Demand,  Melissa is also a visibility coach for brick + mortar studio businesses focusing on SEO. Guiding other boss ladies to a flourishing business that provides well for their own tribe - creating a legacy for themselves, their family and their community.  

When not inspiring or empowering, Melissa is a super mama of five kiddos, enjoys long hikes (without her kids) and playing in her garden.
