"I have worked with Michelle since her early days as a business coach. I have repeatedly seen her ability to help move businesses to the next level. Her rich background from teaching to running a business for Jack Welch of GE, provide skillsets and tools that can’t be duplicated by others."
As a business owner, it is easy to "do what you do" and get caught up in the daily routines that must be done. Investing time with Michelle has enabled me to see things from a new and better perspective. She's encouraged me to work "on" the business and not just "in" it.
"Michelle is an excellent motivator and leader. While working with Michelle, I have had the pleasure to experience her leadership in helping me to drive my team to new heights."
When I started coaching, I was coming off a very tough year…I was having team problems, working long, hard hours, and not making enough money. Within six months after I started coaching things really started to turn around; I had four crews working, I was spending more time with my family and my revenues had more then doubled. I would recommend Michelle to any business owner or manager that wants to really grow their business and get it to the next level.
At the time we stated working with Michelle, our center was operating at a breakeven point with a cash reserve that was not supportive of the size of our center. By using the coaching advice, our cash reserve has increased 800% and we have a manageable, up-to-date accounts payable that allows us to take advantage of discount periods and avoid late fees.
"In less then a year, Michelle has helped us turn the entire business around. She helped us revise our quoting process with a focus on price management and project profitability, focused us on building a higher performing executive management team, collaboratively negotiated union concessions, and most importantly improved our gross profit margin by over 15%."
