Let's work together.

Remember how magical your business felt when you started? It’s time to bring that back.

You knew that starting a business was not going to be a simple stroll down Easy Street, but you probably did think that at some point you would feel like you had “made it” and your business would run like a well-oiled highly profitable machine.

 

Now, you’re making money but why does it still feel like you’re under the gun? All. The. Time.

 

Even when you’re “off the clock” your business is on your mind 24/7. You never actually stop working, even when you’re with your love ones, enjoying your hobbies or trying to get some sleep.

 

The most logical reason is that as the business owner you’re responsible for keeping the lights on, for making sure your clients are well taken care of, and for making sure you’ve done everything possible to achieve success.

 

Or are you?

What if all of this pressure wasn’t actually real?

What if you are creating this pressure yourself, and since you’re creating it, you could also choose to let it go? I know this feels far fetched, but take a deep breath and pay attention for a moment.

Most business owners – especially women – are striving, barely surviving, because of a false belief of what it means to be successful.

Don’t believe me? Think back to when you started your business, what did success look like then? Probably much different (and much simpler) than where you are now.

 

At some point your vision changed, the bar was set higher, the goals were overwritten, and everything you achieved became “not enough.”

 

Growth and change is an obvious side effect of entrepreneurship, but this change hasn’t made you feel as good as it could because it most likely hasn’t come from you. 

 

Your new definitions of success are coming from external factors such as watching others you admire and what they are doing, cultural norms telling you that you need to “work hard” to have what you want, and other beliefs that are widely accepted but aren’t necessarily true.

I’m here to tell you that it’s time to proudly reclaim YOUR version of success.

I can help you get clear on what success really means for you and make shifts in your belief systems, mindset, and of course business model to take the pressure of you and make your business feel downright magical. 

 

Plus, it probably goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway, we’ll do this without missing out on income growth and sales opportunities, or compromising on the quality of your work.

"As a busy netpreneur and mother, time is of the 'Penny Reisessence.' Searching for information and people I need to grow my business and give me time to spend with my family was a real challenge. Thanks to Michelle’s program, I am loving life! From the very beginning I knew that she had the experience and knowledge to really guide me to make the changes I needed in my business to give me the lifestyle I wanted. Since implementing some of her strategies I have more time and energy for myself, my family and my business. Thanks to Michelle, I’m able to do what I love!"

We do this in three steps:

1. Recalibrate your definition of success

We’ll peel back the layers of false beliefs, external pressures, and get to the core of what you truly want in your life. With a clear vision and direction, solving your challenges is just a matter of moving the pieces of your business into place.

 

2. Delegate, automate, eliminate

We will visit the various areas of your business and put everything into 4 buckets–what only you can do, what you can delegate to others, what can be systematized and put on autopilot, and what you can let go of because it is no longer serving you.

 

3. Wave your wand

In this phase you’ll have your plan in hand with me by your side as you put everything into motion. We will work on one area of your business at a time, reorganizing, training and hiring team members, trying up loose ends, and getting you into that place where your business feels magical again.

"Michelle has been a great asset to my business. She has helped me create and streamline systems, so I was able to bring on a transaction coordinator to continue to grow the business. She held me accountable when I needed it to keep moving forward, she was an inspiration when I needed that, and she was my biggest cheerleader when I had a success. I highly recommend her services as a coach."

There are two ways you can work with me:

VIP Day

After some preliminary assignments you and I will meet virtually or in my West Chicago studio to work through steps one and two. We’ll plan out your projects and action steps for the next 6-12 months, and you’ll leave with a tangible plan in-hand, along with 30 days of email support as you begin to put that plan into action.

One to One Consulting

In this package I take virtual residence in your business as your wise counselor, directing you as you move through all three phases. You can choose to work with me in 6 or 12 month increments, and you’ll have access to support via bi-weekly virtual meetings, email, and Voxer.

"I’ve been an entrepreneur for nearly 10 years, and nobody has helped me learn how to outsource better and more efficiently than Michelle Spalding. She is the queen of outsourcing. Michelle has helped me let go of the things that held me back from success (such as doing everything myself!) so I can actually take time off to travel and enjoy life. I spend more time doing the things I love in my business and less on the things that slow me down. Follow her advice because she can help you delegate tasks to qualified virtual assistants who are extremely affordable."
