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.
“Entrepreneurs are the only people who will work 80 hours a week to avoid working 40 hours a week”
— Lori Griener, Shark Tank Investor
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.
"When Michelle speaks of "soul crafted success" she means it. If you don't start with YOUR definition of success most often you will be chasing someone else's. Then you can wake up one day and find out you are so off course you don't know how to get back?! (speaking from personal experience). Michelle makes you slow down and really think about what is MY definition of success and why and is that really what I want and will fulfill me. THEN and only then once you have that do you start putting the pieces in place to get there. For anyone considering working with Michelle just do it! She has helped me get back on MY soul crafted success path 🥰 "

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."

"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."
