My story

Georgia-bred trailblazer, Melinda Sykes, has recalibrated the way people view and think about leadership. As the founder of The Business Notebook®, Credibility Cure®, Alabama Nail Co.™, and owner of Waxing the City (Dothan, AL) she's an accomplished entrepreneur with many interests.



The savvy entrepreneur has actively worked to improve the knowledge gap that inhibits many executives from connecting to their diverse and ever evolving workforce in a way that creates positive changes.



Before pursuing her entrepreneurial adventures, the Troy University M.B.A graduate honed her talents for a decade in procurement helping run a half-a-billion-dollar business. In 2017, Sykes birthed Waxing the City in Dothan, Alabama as her first entrepreneurial investment. Her impactful leadership acumen quickly rose the business to a million dollar business in less than 4 years.



Naturally, Sykes’ entrepreneurial spirit building brands would lead her to create the industry disruptors in the financial and esthetics industries.

I didn’t grow up in a family full of entrepreneurs. In fact, I’ve learned almost everything through trial and error. I’ve learned that nothing beats work ethic and mine has always lifted me above any obstacles thrown before me.


In business, obstacles are the fee you pay for the rewards entrepreneurship pays.
