The power of people with Melissa Histon
Play • 22 min

Welcome to Season 3 of The Simpler Business Podcast, where Marissa chats with her favourite entrepreneurs about how they simplify their biz, so you can simplify yours.

In today's episode, Marissa talks with Melissa Histon from The Sista Code about the power of people!

Mel is the founder of The Sista Code, an online space created to share thoughts, insights, stories and information, on diverse areas of concern to women - social issues, womens’ health, relationships, career, and family. She is also the Director of Got Your Back Sista - a charity offering relief and support to women and children escaping domestic violence who are at risk of living below the poverty line.  GYBS gives a hand up for them to begin again and live independently. Mel also hosts the award-winning inspirational podcast Hey Soul Sista, available on all major podcast platforms.

Mel has an amazing skill with people - she is so passionate about and dedicated to her work, and every time an event or project for Got Your Back Sista is held there are so many people jumping in to help, tickets to her fundraising events sell out so fast, and they do so much good! It’s incredible what she achieves, she really values the people who work with her and they truly value her too.

Listen in as Marissa and Mel talk about how the Sista Code and Got Your Back Sista came about, what it’s like running a charity, asking for help and volunteers for events and projects, and what they are working on right now.
