Success Stories

  • “My coaching business before the Coach & Grow R.I.C.H. system wasn’t really working, especially with my approach to services. I didn’t have a clear strategy on marketing, packaging and pricing my services. The materials helped me to narrow my business focus and my target market. I feel more confident talking about my business and working with others now. The Packaging and Pricing module and the Client Consultation components really helped a great deal. It also gave me the confidence to charge more for individual coaching and to create some lower-priced/ shorter-term coaching products.

    The Client Consultation system…takes the guess work and awkwardness of meeting with prospects and positions me as the quality coaching professional that I am. Also, Handling client Objections changed the way I viewed objections and helped me appreciate the value I offer to clients.

    I feel I have all the tools to build a strong and success coaching and training/ speaking practice that is authentic and full of integrity. There is no reason why I shouldn’t be able to build a 6-figure coaching business in the next 12-18 months.

    Thank you Michelle for what you do. Keep being awesome!”

  • “Michelle, I continue to benefit from the training I received from C&GR – my company made a six-figure profit last year, and is on target to multiply those results again this year!”

  • “My coaching business did not exist before I joined the Coach & Grow R.I.C.H. program! What I really like about the system is that it helped me to learn how to structure my consultation calls so that I attract clients rather than try to push my service on them and also, to work around the money objection. Despite the fact that my coaching business is new; with the help of the system I have already secured several clients and scheduled more consultation sessions. It changes the focus when I concentrate on consultation calls, and it takes a lot of the pressure off. Michelle’s Coach & Grow R.I.C.H. program has truly helped me with gaining more self-confidence and I am so happy that I have already secured new clients after just a few consultations! Thank you Michelle!!!”
