Work with Michelle

My clients are recognized leaders with
a deep sense of purpose.

And that is often a lonely place to be. Confident women are often without support that feels as deep and wide as they deserve.

True leadership can be a heavy identity to bear. Carrying a message, holding it in the light, trusting your feet and your voice… these are big, meaningful things. 

The Brene Brown quote, “If you are not in the arena getting your ass kicked on occasion, I am not interested in or open to your feedback.” rings so real and true.

Every time I hear this quote, I think about how badly I want the woman in the arena to have someone standing next to her. Reviewing notes, fine tuning the language, walking through the delivery, and waiting to support, debrief, provide both care and partnership when she walks out of that arena. 

I am that person.

If some part of you relaxed at the thought of not holding so strong, leading in your brilliance alone, I would love to work with you.

Already know you want to chat?

You really don't have to do this alone. Having someone you trust to talk through ideas, to ask you the kinds of questions that reveal your deepest brilliance and allow you to relax into your most authentic and powerful expression in all areas of your work (and life).

There is no doubt in my mind that you are here to make a meaningful impact – and I’m here for it.

I recognize that you have your foot on the gas. That while you might not always feel completely confident in your message (even if you know its power and impact!) – the purpose is always driving you.

Being confident and strong means that people can forget to check on you. They might think you don’t need it because you play so big so often. 

It’s tricky because you may have tried to bring on a coach or other expert and found yourself more frustrated than when you were doing it all alone because, frankly, they just don’t get what you’re really trying to do – and how to support you in the mission. 

I’ve had the honor of supporting women like you for over a decade. I understand that you rarely need someone to tell you what to say because you are already brilliant and articulate in your message and work. But you do want a thought partner and someone to help you talk through strategy – and to bring expertise and resources where you need them.


There are  three ways to work with me.


You have an important talk coming up and you want it to be awesome! We'll create a coaching plan that fits your timeframe that includes the entire process from core message (including alignment with your goals and business) to the kind of content that captivates an audience to delivering with confidence and delight. Let's start the conversation here.


You want to deep dive with full loving and expert support on all things speaking, thought leadership plus vision and strategic planning for your business and your life. If appropriate, we can also get a powerful signature talk in play during our time together, too! This kind of work is perfect for a private 1 – 3 day intensive. (If you'd like to bring together a few business friends, we can make this a very small group experience as well). Totally custom to your needs. Walk away with: A clear vision, a plan, your totally aligned message, a signature talk… and more! Start here and let's start dreaming up this deep dive together.


You want to become recognized as a leader in your industry. You know that your message changes lives and your story serves. Now it's time to create that bigger platform. This means a podcast guest tour and/or creating your own podcast, getting on more and better stages, finally writing your (next) book, landing that TEDx talk… whatever your Vision, I'm here to support you every step of the way. We are in rich partnership! If this sounds excellent to you, start here and let's chat.

Ready for this kind of high-level support?


The first conversation we had made me realize that what I really have to say is so much bigger. She really helped me get to the heart of my message—what the real big message was. It was the best day ever. When I went up to do that talk, I had all the confidence in the world. I knew it like the back of my hand. It also helped me shape the outline of my book. Some of the best work that I did, definitely, in 2019 was with Michelle.

CEO, Hello Seven

"I am gaining so much more clarity than I ever thought possible. I didn't even realize that crafting a talk or speaking was something that could be possible for me until coming into this group and hearing the stories of so many amazing people. I am so grateful for being a part of this program Michelle, and I cannot wait to see how it all ends!! Thank you for all of the help and feedback."

"Michelle: at the risk of bumming everyone else out, YOU HAVE TO INCREASE THE PRICE on this course. I swear I have gotten so much value already!!! Thank you so much!"

"UNBELIEVABLE EXPERTISE… Michelle is one of the best coaches I’ve ever worked with in any field." - Melanie Vetter

“Michelle had an ability to take my mess and make art out of it. She was very intuitive and helped me shape and formulate my message.” – Gayle Canton

I believe wholeheartedly that we need the voices of brilliant women bigger and louder in our world. You are meant for this because your mission is world-changing. I want to help you make the kind of impact you dream of making and support that big, beautiful vision you hold. You don’t have to do it alone. You deserve to have someone standing in your corner, helping to fine tune your mastery and keep you out of doubt.

You’re probably the type of person people often think doesn’t need support. The kind of support a strong woman needs is different. That’s why my services are totally concierge. Based on exactly what you need and nothing you don’t.*

You aren't a blueprint type woman, your message doesn't need a blueprint approach.

You are beyond that. Here’s a partial list of some of the things coming your way that we can work on together:

Keynote, TED, or other high level speaking

PR opportunities

Specific media training

Telling your founder story

On-site support for large events

Writing your book/book proposals

Press release support

Press conferences

If any of this resonates for you, I would love to have a conversation with you about how I can support you.

To work this intimately with someone and their message must be a good fit and I’d love to discover together if my services are a fit for both of us.

* While we will absolutely create a custom program for your needs, it may help to know that private coaching begins at $7,000 with a minimum of 6 months. The rest of the details we will design together.
