Some people have a good sense of business, they understand logic and success. Others are more emotionally driven and understand and care about people. It’s rare to find someone who can balance head and heart, and that is Melissa McLane.

With Melissa’s business savvy sense she has been able to create a vision, articulate that vision, own it and drive it to success all while being a genuine person and making a lasting impression on everyone she does business with.  Her ambition and serial entrepreneur spirit has led her to be the owner and operator of more than five successful businesses within the last 15 years.

At a young age, as an employee for Esprit, Melissa saw a great business opportunity and began purchasing the company’s excess inventory and selling it at various farmers’ markets and different locations that were available. This was so successful she decided to take it to the next level and that business has grown and morphed over the years into what we call “Liquid.” With two stores now open in Marin County, Melissa hopes to open 10 new stores in California and eventually even more spread around the United States.

Along with her accomplishments, she has also been met with challenges in her life, a major one was being diagnosed with cancer while she was pregnant with her first child. Melissa endured a six-hour surgery that was needed to fight her cancer and awoke from the anesthesia to feel her unborn child moving inside of her. She and her baby survived that obstacle and she now is the proud mother of two children. When she is not working or spending time with her family, Melissa regularly participates in philanthropic events and activities in her community.

“We live in a world where there are so many obstacles and challenges to overcome. I believe the key to our success and overcoming those challenges lies in four critical factors; Great vendors, wonderful committed staff, amazing customers, and the support of family and friends. We at Liquid Marin work extremely hard. Our clients and customers stay loyal to us because it comes back to relationships and people.”

-Melissa McLane -Owner

Melissa’s successful business ventures combined with her charitable activities have helped connect people and made them feel inspired. She has learned, been cheered for, helped, challenged, laughed and built something people are proud to be connected to.
