This is how I’m supposed to be. 5 things about me

melissa divietri

As many of you know.. or maybe don’t know… I run a successful social media business but also a well known status online & offline. I am constantly striving to improve myself, my brand and my image. I want to be the very best person and role model for my family & friends. I’ve compiled a list of 5 things about me.. something that I thought of.. because it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged.

#5. I’m Busy. Frantic. Loud. Indecisive. Moving. Shaking.

In a nutshell? I’m all over the place. I’m running 120 mph at all hours of the day because I love being busy. If I am not doing something then I will have a mini panic attack. Busy is good for me. I monetize on time management and using my resources in the correct way.

I can remember during university days when my professor wrote a heart felt email on how it took awhile to understand my personality. After she realized that I was a one-of-a-kind, she began to outreach during the middle of lecture for my marketing advice. Consulting has always been second nature to me.. but now I’m getting paid for it.

#4. What do I do for a living?

I am a founder of a social media agency.

My social media agency is located in the heart of Detroit, MI. My team of social media strategists specialize in content curation, influencer outreach and creating advertising campaigns that will drive brand visibility & generate leads.


#3. What do I like to do? Travel. Tweet. Blog

This has been my year of travel. Los Angeles, Manhattan, Orlando, Oaxaca, Bali and more. I am thrilled for opportunities where business owners want to meet me. Honored actually. I outreach to influencers in social media and advertising to see their availability scheduling appointments to discuss partnerships in marketing. I take advantage of every opportunity because you never know when it might be your last

#2. Expansion: The only way to grow is to hire people

I’ll do what I need to do to create a motivated team that I can count on. My social media agency is BOOMING. I cannot keep up with the referrals; it is so much at times because I need to qualify the brands and some simply do not understand. I charge for strategy and research; some do not get that.. it’s just business. Would you work for free? How can I keep the lights on if I give away all of my secrets.

#1. I am a lover of Detroit, MI

My agency is located in downtown Detroit. My new apartment will be built in October 2016. I am constantly inspired by the new beginnings, construction and things happening in the area. I have been working on a passion project called “Embrace Detroit” a blog about all of the positive things happening in Detroit.
