About Melissa Cooper

Early in her career, J. Melissa Cooper gave up a secure corporate job just outside of Boston for the vast unknown of FreelanceNation. Her energy, vision and expertise in human resources were taking her to a new place; she just wasn’t sure of what that place looked like.

So Melissa started her new web-based company with $700 and an Elance account, completing resume projects for clients from her small one-bedroom apartment in North Miami. She took her own phone calls, built her own web pages, and sent out her own invoices.

Five short years later, her company was generating nearly $4 million per year and on the fast track to being acquired.

Her story is the ethos for anyone hoping to break their corporate shackles for the sovereignty of FreelanceNation. In her book, Melissa shows you how you too, can escape the corporate grind.
