It’s natural to say ‘Do I really need this?’ when things are going well. But having a coach gives the business an amazing resource. Michelle is a 3rd set of eyes, helping to make the business more successful. I can’t even put a value on it anymore. It is definitely worth every penny! While working with Michelle, my staff issues greatly improved and so did my business growth. In less than one year, my business grew over 18% in revenue while I have been working with Michelle!

I was contacted by Michelle about business coaching, and really didn’t think I wanted to deal with it, but I sat down and talked with them for about an hour. I decided to try their services for a few months, especially since there were no contracts to sign. I’ve been working with the coaches now for about 2 years!
I’ve learned a lot about organization. Coaching has helped my company continue on their path and to be more efficient and effective. They’re like a computer program – if you use them 100% of the time (to their fullest extent) you’ll get a lot out of them. They help with hiring, marketing, goals, issues, problems, customers, reports, problems with partners, etc.
I’ve met a lot of other coaches, and go to the annual conferences, and this group
is one of the best. They are very attentive and I consider them part of my team. They understand my business and they truly care (and they have a lot of fun too).
