Deanna Maio loves teaching service business owners how to significantly grow their business while still having time to live a great life. She started coaching in 2005 to help busy service providers get the information, support, and accountability they needed to deal with the sometimes overwhelming prospect of running and growing their business.

Prior to starting her own business, Deanna spent over 10 years as a manager, instructional designer and workshop facilitator. She’s supported leaders and managers inside the tiniest dot com startups to her role as Director of Learning and Development for a subsidiary of Merrill Lynch. She has experience in the hospitality, health care, information technology, human resources, and financial services industries. An unconditionally supportive coach and sought-after speaker and facilitator, Deanna is known for her passion and dedication to helping her clients create better results faster and easier than ever before.

Deanna is a creator of the Get Free Help With Interns System, End Marketing Overwhelm Forever, and the HANDS Free Team Formula and is a co-author in the recently published book, GPS for Success:Goals and Proven Strategies with Steven Covey and Dr. John Gray. When she’s not supporting entrepreneurs and business owners, she’s busy singing with her own 1950s lounge trio, Deanna & the Downbeats.

"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

  • “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.”

  • “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.”

    Life Coach


  • “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!”
