About Melissa Ward

Managing Partner at NewWard Development, LLC . I am more than just a web developer or marketer, I am an Internet Master. I help my clients to create their vision, put that vision in two dimensional graphic form, and partner with them to build a social network of potential customers and clients to connect to. I also enjoy helping people to realize their true passions. Sometimes ideas come and go with little impact or action. I have the pleasure of working with people who have come into their own by following their passions. I wouldn't trade it for anything!

Nearly [...]

Seth Godin – The Dip

By |2016-11-18T20:56:17+00:00June 5th, 2012|Book Reviews|

I was reading Seth Godin's blog today, and saw a reference to his book "The Dip".  The  concept of the book is winners know when to quit.  It's contrary to the "Winners never quit" mentality that's embedded into our brain from society. The reference came at a timely moment for me. Take a listen to the opening pages. I get involved in a [...]

I've just returned from a visit to the far east, my first time to that part of the world.  It was a combo trip, both business and pleasure.  I have to say - both went quite well. Business was taking me to Bangkok to speak at the Rotary International Convention on Social Media, but my [...]

Relationships and Corporations
