Make Lemonade Out of Lemons, They Said. So That's What I'm Doing!
Tired of being taken advantage of in your job or home? Do something about it.
Hi, I'm Michelle. I'm a teacher entrepreneur and I love helping people start a business they love.
Business is Great -- Until Someone Messes It Up
Sometimes we do everything right -- but things go wrong anyway. In my case, the problem started on April 9 when someone hacked my Facebook account and got it suspended. You can read more about that here if you want all the details. Suffice it to say though that I'm still locked out and the hacker has spent more than $300 through my Facebook ads account.
I am working with my bank and Paypal to try to get this resolved because Facebook is not returning my emails. In the meantime, I need to make sure Paypal doesn't send me to collections. Which means I have to pay the bill.
I have the money, but an unplanned transaction this large that I did not authorize still hurts. I don't want to ask for handouts, so I'm going to give you the opportunity to purchase anything in my store for half price. Yes, I'm making lemonade out of these lemons. You get a great deal and I'm going to be able to pay off the debt my hacker racked up.

But I'm Not Going To Let This Get Me Down!
Whether you're just starting out in business or you've been doing this forever, you know bad things can happen. Your Facebook account can get hacked. Someone can write a bad review online even though you did exactly what they hired you to do. Your house can burn down. A client can decide they'd rather work with someone else. You can get run over by a semi.
When these things happen, you may want to quit. Don't.
These are the times when you rethink your processes, rethink your lifestyle, and make changes to do better, to be better. And you also rely on your network to help you through.
I Need Your Help Making the Lemonade
I don't want to ask for handouts. But I have a trove of resources I've been building with my team, including help from my trusted mentors. Since I need cash quickly, I'm running a 50% off sale until Friday. Anyone who knows me knows I rarely hold sales -- I like to price my products fairly and provide the value to back it up. You can help me -- and I'll help you with your business or reaching your dreams.
Why Should You Buy These Resources?
I started out as an entrepreneur more than 20 years ago. My son was just a year old. I love him -- but he wasn't a very good conversationalist back then, so I joined a group of stay at home moms online -- both for friendship and for parenting advice. I taught myself how to write HTML and CSS code (and edit PHP) so that I could share my stories online with my friends from around the world.
Soon, my friends saw that I could build websites -- and asked me to create ecommerce websites so they could sell their baby slings and cloth diapers online. I realized that this was something I could do to earn extra money to help support my household.
So, I started a business in my home as a web designer and hosting company owner. My upstream providers not only offered great customer service when I needed help with my servers, but they also taught me how to troubleshoot and solve problems myself. They modeled for me how to both take care of a problem and help someone take care of future problems themselves by teaching them how to identify it and how to login to the computer through SSH and use Unix code to fix it. This model of teaching is what I used in my classroom and in my resources here to help you start and grow your online business.
As an English teacher for 10 years, I've spent the decade working and partnering with hundreds of students to help them see their strengths and find their voices. I want to continue this work here by providing you with resources to determine what kind of business and lifestyle you want and find the right path to achieving success for you.

Incredible insight on how to really nail down an idea for a business
I truly appreciated the level of professionalism and respect that you brought to our meeting. Although recent events have not provided a stable environment to establish a business just yet, my meeting with you gave me some incredible insight on how to really nail down an idea for a business. I loved that you listened to exactly what I was wanting to do, developed a clear agenda for how to proceed, and provided some incredible sources and tools in the process! I would absolutely recommend you!
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.
Great advice on maintaining consistency in writing
I have blogged off and on for several years, but in the last couple of years, I have focused on my work as a middle school teacher. My blog has been mostly personal, but now, I know I have something to say to "the world." Michelle gave me some good ideas on ways to build an audience as well as some great advice on maintaining consistency in writing and posting. She is practical and down-to-earth in her approach to creating a blog and keeping the focus. I would definitely recommend her.
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!
