Success Stories

  • K'Lynne Wagner - PermanentWeightLossCoaching.com

    “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!”

    “My coaching business was essentially just an idea before I learned the Coach & Grow RICH system.

    I found the entire program to be valuable because it is a comprehensive system that shows exactly how all the pieces to building a successful coaching business fit together.

    Before I learned the system, I didn’t have any clients. Right after I learned it, I signed my first client at $250 a month. Then shortly after, my next client at $350 a month. My business continued to grow from there.

    The Coach & Grow R.I.C.H. system gave me a fantastic foundation to build my coaching business on.”

    “About 2 days ago I got your ‘Best Year Ever’ program and it’s very similar to something I’ve already been running myself. But having your materials was worth every penny! I put it up and I already have 16 people signed up in 2 days to attend a teleseminar with no marketing other than just posting it up. I’m just vouching for that because…all of your work on that is great!”
