"I worked with C&GR Associate Coach, Deanna Maio, for 6 months and it was great.  I essentially started from near nothing and ended up with 9 one-on-one clients generating about $5000 per month in revenue. Plus my pipeline is growing and my comfort level with the marketing and sales side of the business is amazing now. Deanna was perfect for me in her approach, knowledge and care."

Success Stories

  • “Before getting the Coach & Grow R.I.C.H. system I was not even coaching anyone but after I met Michelle at workshop in San Diego I decided to buy it and try it out. The program has a lot of great material that helped me wrap my head around what I was doing and get clearer on my goals. I’m really looking forward to going through the course again and use the material more since I’m really trying to launch my business this year. Michelle’s program helped me to take the first big step – starting my coaching business! I already developed my first website and had the confidence to do it. Now I’m working on starting a group. After going through the program I gained confidence that I can actually do this simply by seeing that so many other people at different levels are currently doing it as well. In the past I was getting stuck at times because I always want to do everything perfectly but now I know that it was holding me back! This is definitely my 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!!!”

  • “I took Michelle’s training somewhat desperate to generate five clients quickly for my upcoming coaching certification program. I was not only impressed with how many marketing tools I received, but also how many practical ways and examples to apply them. I chose to start with “Grassroots Marketing” and to my elation, I was able to generate 11 clients (better than a 50% return) by just applying a couple of the techniques she shared. I found Michelle to be an extraordinary teacher, who is wholeheartedly committed to helping her students create financial success and freedom.”
