I believe leadership begins from the inside out.

Focus on self-leadership and become a Modern Leader.

My personal and professional evolution to becoming the Modern Leader’s Maven has been a long and winding road.

Each twist and turn brought opportunities that pushed me way past my limits and there have been so many surprising and spectacular gifts that continuously raise the ceiling higher with each challenge.

I AM IN AWE OF THE EXPERIENCE THAT HAVE GRACED MY JOURNEY SO FAR…

Now for a bit of backstory.

I started out painfully shy and found my voice by taking the stage…first as a musician then as an actor. Hey, I may not be the next Julia Roberts but a high school play can do wonders for your evolution.

After a successful 15 year stint in the corporate world, I felt the pull to do something else, so I took the leap into serial entrepreneurship starting with a brick and mortar business that was almost instantly a success, after the first year, I received a business excellence award and that ignited the flame to see what else was possible, the adrenaline launched me on the path to starting a series of successful businesses.

The evolution hit a bump in the road when fibromyalgia hit hard in my 20s, never one to accept defeat… I became a wellness junkie and kicked it to the curb. My personal health detour opened my eyes to how many health and wellness entrepreneurs needed help building their businesses. I knew how to help them and wanted to help as many as possible to get their knowledge out into the world, so I decided to launch a podcast Making the Maven, after more than 200 episodes and a global audience, wanderlust kicked in again.

ARE YOU SEEING A PATTERN YET? I AM MY CLIENT…I FEEL THE CALL AND I EVOLVE.

Hi,_I'm_Michelle

My most recent call has led me to go deeper within than I had before and what I learned was life-changing, I thought I had identified all of the parts and experiences and woven them together, alas there was more.

I love a good puzzle and as I started to piece together all of the experiences, learnings, and relationships that brought me to where I was, I saw what I was leaving on the table. 

Now this shocked me, I was happy and prospering in every aspect of my life, what was I meant to do with these extra puzzle pieces?

As I moved things around, thought about what brought me joy, what did not, how I can be of the highest service through my work, a new picture started to emerge, I realized that I was not taking my own advice. It was time to upcycle, do an internal audit, and combine all of my parts in a new way.

It’s not about making the choice of either corporate or entrepreneur, it’s about connecting with high-achieving modern leaders wherever they might be and guide them through this exact process.

Funny how things unfold, this experience both reminded and taught me that the foundation of every successful leader to ensure there is a deep connection between heart + mind.

As our leadership grows, this piece tends to get lost. This is also the piece that nurtures relationships and creates feelings of belonging. This disconnect is so often the piece that holds us back when on the surface life looks grand.

This is the piece I help clients reclaim and welcome into the fold.

On the flipside, I am a recovering introvert, kitty lover, happily married and living in my dream location in beautiful Vermont.

Whatever you’d like to know, I’m an open book. Just ask.

Let’s have a chat. And more importantly, let’s evolve.

I had 20 appointments scheduled before I opened my doors…

“Before working with Michelle I was a contractor at a massage clinic making decent money; I was not miserable but I was not thriving. I wanted to move away from massage and start my own acupuncture business but I was not sure how to make that happen.

While working with Michelle I was able to launch my own acupuncture practice, create a beautiful space I love, define my specialty, and carve out a space for myself online while also getting out in to my local community.

When I opened my doors, I had 20 appointments booked and after my first 2-1/2 months in business, my schedule is 50% fully booked.

Working with Michelle allowed me to flush out my vision, message and ultimately what I wanted in my business. This increased my confidence and add to that my improved marketing skills was a recipe for success.

If you’re on the fence about hiring Michelle, I can tell you it’s 100% worth the investment. I know for a fact at 2.5 months in, without her help I would not be where I am at today. She helped to fast track my business and shaved years off my business growth.”

I went from 2 new clients per month to 2 new clients per week…

“Before working with Michelle my stream of new clients was at 1-2 per month and I was feeling scared, not good enough…like a failure. And I didn’t know what to do. I felt stuck. I didn’t know how to bring in new business.

After working with Michelle, I now consistently have 1-2 new clients per week. I feel much more confident. I know I have the tools to drum up more business. I know what works for me and how to do it – I know my strengths and I will always have that.

What I loved about working with Michelle is her encouragement and positivity and recognition my achievements were really something to be excited about. She helped me to see that. When I was having a hard time she didn’t give up on me and even referred me to another coach who was super helpful.

Most of all, I know Michelle really cares about me and was really accessible and helpful both personally and professional. I couldn’t imagine having a better experience with anyone else.

If you’re on the fence about working with Michelle, I absolutely would say go for it because it’s well worth it – I more than made back in profits my investment. But it’s not just about the coaching, it’s learning the tools to go forward from there and to be able to continue to build my business. I now understand what I can do, the foundational principles to build my business – strategies I can go back to for a lifetime – a tool set for me as a practitioner.

This experience has been a rewiring of my brain in terms of how to run a business, building the capacity to run a business. Its been so worth it.

I now feel like an expert. The gap between what I want people to think about me and what I think about myself is closing. Michelle’s coaching brought me the freedom to become the practitioner that I always was inside but now reflected on the outside too.”

I went from 2 clients to 7 in the first month and 27 in the second…

“Before working with Michelle, I was a brand new acupuncturist seeing 2 clients and making around $100 per month. I grew my client visits from 7 in the first month to 27 in the second. By the end of our work together, I was making $1500 consistently each month {sometimes $2000!}. In addition to growing my business, I also opened a second clinic that was in my ideal location.

As a result of our work together, I felt more confident as a practitioner, developing and communicating treatment plans, asking for and receiving money, and not taking it personally if a client was not seeing results or not a good fit. Michelle also helped me to get clear on my vision: how I could make it work and create sustainable growth in my business, while at the same time balancing my roles as new mom, wife, business owner and acupuncturist.

Michelle is a great blend of business strategy, structure, tough love, mindset work, support, and accountability. She pushed me and cheered me on. She helped me focus and asked me pointed questions so that I could ultimately decide how to create a business that allowed me to balance all my roles without guilt or shame. I would highly recommend her as your coach.”

She provides her content with clarity and authority and you quickly realize she not only knows what she’s talking about but also that she really gets it, because she has been in your shoes too.”

My business is up 50%…
“I wrapped up most of 2016 financial reports. I think you and I stopped working together about a year ago now and I wanted to share the following:
This year my business is up exactly 50%! I made in my private practice alone what both jobs (hospital/private practice) together had pulled in the past 2 years.
Also, it’s not just the numbers, but the know-how, confidence, and competence I have acquired as a business owner, manager, networker, and accountant.
My books are tight, I am IN my business and on my business. It feels good. It feels SO good.”
