Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT Vantage Point MBA Admissions Consulting!
Three questions with Melody Jones, Co-Founder & President of Vantage Point MBA Admissions Consulting.
Why did you start your business?
I started Vantage Point because I wanted to help young people like me (well, I was young at the time!) have the best chance at getting into their dream MBA program. I believe in the transformative power of graduate business education and after benefiting from admissions coaching myself when I applied to business school, I wanted to offer even better support and resources to future applicants.
What is your best-selling product/service?
Our best-selling service is our Comprehensive Package. This service is fully inclusive admissions coaching for 1 or more schools and covers the entire application process - from story and career goal development to school selection and all the way to interview preparation. The unlimited nature of the package, in other words, no caps on several calls or essay drafts, allows our clients to receive coaching that's truly tailored to them.
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
All the time! The rapid evolution of technology over the past 5+ years has completely reimagined how I run the business and how we serve our clients. From using ChatGPT to support marketing content development to the now familiar use of video as our primary mode of client communication, I'm always looking for ways to work more efficiently. My team has been remote from the start but now that we've grown to over 25 consultants, implementing systems to replace our previously ad-hoc processes has also been a game changer.
