Success Stories

  • Marylee Pangman - Business Consultant and Coach

    “Before I learned the Coach & Grow R.I.C.H. system I was unfocused. I felt like I was all over the map. I only had a few clients, no groups and no plan to increase my revenue expect to work harder.

    The process of the Coach & Grow R.I.C.H. system is superb. Michelle was a great guide in walking me through the steps and building on each one until I got to the next level.

    Since learning the Coach & Grow R.I.C.H. system I have doubled my revenue and I did it without doubling the number of clients I’m serving. I have successfully run two ongoing groups and continue to build more through speaking activities.

    I continually come back to the content creation template to plan each group I start. And as I develop more components of my signature system, I always go back to my Coach & Grow R.I.C.H. system materials. The “Marketing Train” lesson was also a huge bonus for me. It gave me the focus I needed to not try to do everything at once.

    Thanks Michelle!”

    “Thanks so much Michelle for your 1-1 coaching.  Before we met I was unclear about how and when I should start my group coaching program.  You helped me figure out that I just needed to set a date and do it. If I hadn’t done this I would still be unsure of what to do and if this was even something that I wanted or could do.  And now because of your great coaching, training and encouragement I have completed my first six week jumpstart program. I loved every minute of it and I know that this is what I want to do and that I can do it.  Without your help I would still be in the planning stage and who knows, maybe given up on my dream completely. Thank you so much!”

  • “The C&GR system provided me with the structure I needed to make my dream of having a coaching business a reality. The information is presented in an easy way that anybody can understand even if you are not technology savvy and are new to the business world. I was able to follow the instructions easily and effortlessly because they are so easy to understand! For instance, I was struggling with the email marketing. The program gave me “done for you” templates that I used to create my emails and the structure to effectively communicate with my community. Also, this program prepared me for public speaking engagements, including teleseminars, which are key to attract potential clients. The best part of all is that Michelle coaches you along the way and provides you with guidance and feedback so you feel 100% supported throughout the program (my favorite part!).

    Overall, I feel significantly more prepared as a coach and creating a coaching business is no longer a mystery or a dream, but a totally achievable endeavor because C&GR has thought me the step by step system and I feel more confident than ever before! Thanks Michelle, I totally recommend your program to anyone who is ready to create a quantum leap in their business!”
