Melinda Wittstock is a 5-time serial entrepreneur who has built 4 businesses in media and tech to 7- and 8- figure success. She’s the CEO and Founder Podopolo, the world's first socially interactive and "gamified" podcast network where people gather to discover their favorite podcasts, connect with hosts and each other, and win rewards as they put lessons learned into action to enhance their lives and change the world. Podopolo is also the first to share revenue with podcasters - and donate 10% of its earnings to mission-driven businesses and charities worldwide. Melinda also helps business owners and entrepreneurs launch magnetic and profitable podcasts.

An acknowledged visionary in tech, media, mobile platforms and social content, Melinda also hosts the fast growing "Wings Of...Inspired Business" podcast named by Entrepreneur Magazine as #8 of 20 of the top business podcasts for 2020. The Wings mission is to #LiftAsWeClimb, helping female founders leverage their feminine power and collaborate to change the game of business and succeed without tradeoff, guilt or apology. Melinda also hosts the transformational mastermind and luxury retreat "Wings of The Empowered Women" for women with 7-, 8- and 9-figure businesses.
