A teacher at heart

I have known Michelle for about 14 years and have always noticed that she is a teacher at heart. Whenever I or another peer asks a question, Michelle is eager to answer and has gone so far as to do research to be sure the information she's giving is up to date.

Over the years I have had a few 1:1 coaching sessions with Michelle and she instinctively knows the right questions to ask. Whether that was to get me thinking more deeply or to guide me toward an answer, Michelle was always patient and I could feel that she cared about my next steps.

Michelle is one of my favorite online resources and I highly recommend grabbing a few 1:1 coaching sessions.

Highly recommended!

Michelle Waters not only helped me as a student, but also as a person and entrepreneur. She went above and beyond to make time to perfect my business even when I would procrastinate. Extremely goal oriented and honest. If you’re looking to start a new business but just feel like you need steps in the right direction or even just critiquing your existing one, I highly recommend Michelle!
