PITTSBURGH, PA, October 2, 2018 – From Start-Up to Success founder, award-winning Pittsburgh business owner, entrepreneur coach, and author, Melanie Colusci , was recently welcomed as the new leader of Pittsburgh Women’s Mastermind , a supportive group of action-taking, entrepreneurial, businesswomen who are enthusiastic about learning to grow their businesses and helping other women do the same.

In Bufalini’s transition announcement to the group, she said, “Over the past two years, Melanie has been a member and a client who consistently impresses me with her leadership skills and her commitment to excellence. She is the successful owner of two businesses: Bridger Financial Group and From Start-Up To Success. Her mission with From Start-up to Success is to provide a secure and supportive environment in which women can confidently grow their business. This is in total alignment with Pittsburgh Women's Mastermind's mission and purpose.”

Colusci and Bufalini collaborated to create a seamless leadership transition without any changes to the group’s mission, core activities, or member rates. The group offers monthly meetings, periodic Mix & Mingle events, and a private Facebook group. Visitors are welcome to attend a meeting as they consider membership.
