Coaching Praise

PRAISE: Coaching

From day one, Michelle has seen the growth potential in our business. She makes us ask and answer the tough questions. And she never ceases to be our biggest fan. Michelle helps us navigate risk, and celebrates with us when our efforts are rewarded. Her wisdom, keen sense for strategy, planning, and goal setting, and her undeniable passion for us, as clients, have been key to our business development and to us, as women entrepreneurs. Michelle keeps us focused, grounded, and pushes us to always get better, stronger, more successful. Her advice is practical and savvy, and we see tangible results from her counsel. Over the course of our work with Michelle (3 years now), we have seen our revenue quadruple and our personnel expand from just two owners to a talented team of five employees. And we’re still growing. Our investment in Michelle has been one of the smartest business decisions we have made; we are grateful to consider her a part of our strategic team.”
Jennie Malloy and Aimee Goodwin, Co-owners of The Brand Collective

 Everyone gets stuck from time to time, whether you are a seasoned business professional or someone launching a startup. After years of trying new methods and strategies, I finally decided that I needed to work with someone who specialized in helping businesses grow. Lucky for me, I found Michelle. Michelle is a positive force who helped me uncover, and sometimes rediscover, my strengths, my target market, what it was I really wanted out of my business, and how to get there. That’s the kind of stuff that’s really hard to do on your own, even if you are super disciplined and wonderful at self-discovery. She makes you work, but the best part is that she’s so positive and upbeat about your every success that you’re happy to do it. Her business coaching is one of the most positive experiences I have had in my 17 years of business. My only regret is that I wish I had done it sooner. I highly recommend Michelle for business professionals in any stage of development. If you want to grow, Michelle can help you find the way.”
Alison Harris, Harris Marketing Services 

I am the owner of a small custom building firm and recently had the opportunity to work with Michelle on assessing the state of our business and to help develop strategies for the company moving forward. Our experience with Michelle far exceeded our expectations. After our first meeting, the group was inspired, energized and highly motivated to bring our business to the next level. Michelle brings applicable insight, in depth knowledge and an infectious enthusiasm to her business remodeling approach. She is on point and has a calm and effective way of guiding business owners in the right direction. We are thrilled with the results of our work with Michelle and would highly recommend her to any entrepreneur looking to overhaul or strategically grow their company. Thanks Michelle!”
Peter Floeckher, North By East

Our team looked for a coach to work with us that would help us organize our team, create a plan, and implement our process. Michelle provided us the guidance, direction, and kept us on schedule. Forming a successful team takes a commitment from all the team members along with a coach keeping you on task with a common goal in mind. As part of our team plan we will have Michelle work with us in the future.”
Jack T., Financial Advisor

Michelle has been an integral part of my leadership team. She understands our industry (financial) while effectively applying her management consulting approach to both teams and individuals. She is a partner to both those she serves and to the firm as she is truly additive in seeking or using available resources to ensure that all remain on the same page with vision and actions. I appreciate the work ethic and follow up and now see team after team observing the success we enjoy and then asking to be part of this growth experience.”
Stephen P., Financial Services Firm

Michelle is the best. Hire her while you can, because if we hit the business plan that Michelle helped us devise, we are going to offer her a full-time position! I cannot recommend Michelle enough.”
Ryan Shimala, More & Co.

Even though I have owned my business for over 20 years, Michelle’s support was just what I needed to jumpstart some marketing ideas that I had been considering for quite some time. She is a positive thinker and an attentive listener who consistently gave me the encouragement I needed to bring my plans to fruition.”
Debbie Godowsky, Founder, www.CookiesDirect.com

Michelle continues to be invaluable in helping me to map out my business goals. She helps me to focus and prioritize projects, assisting with social media plans, helping to brainstorm content creation ideas for my blog + podcast, and even coached me through my first foray into public speaking. A gifted public speaker, she’s incredibly positive, super friendly, generous, and detail-oriented. If you find yourself in need of an entrepreneurial ear with the chops to guide you through actually getting things done, I can’t recommend her highly enough!”
Kelley Fitch, Founder and CEO at Kid Gigawatt

Michelle is genuinely invested in her client’s well being, goals and success. I always felt comfortable opening up to Michelle; which is important for progress and growth. She is reliable, highly responsive and always made herself available to me.

Michelle provided me with real life tools I could utilize in both my personal and business life. She has an authentic, non-judgmental approach that built credibility and allowed me to trust her whole-heartedly. Michelle also shared her own real life experiences which helped put things in context and made it “more real” for me.

I would recommend Michelle to anyone looking for a life coach. The investment in yourself (and Michelle) is well worth it. THANK YOU Michelle for everything you have done for me and all of your support!”
Karen Cassette, Unum

Michelle and I connected because of our mutual interests in motivational speaking. After talking with her, I knew she could offer me some help in getting my business off the ground. The marketing and social networking plan she did for me was creative and innovative yet simple and to the point so I just needed to follow the step by step plan.  I highly recommend Michelle for marketing and so much more. You won’t be disappointed.”
Jane Honeck, Speaker, Author, Money Coach

Michelle has been a great encourager and inspiration in the growth of my business. She helped me look at the “big picture” by setting business and personal goals. I highly recommend Michelle to anyone who is serious about growing their business.”
Shirley Douglas, Douglas Designs

Michelle has been nothing short of amazing with her assistance and support to myself and the other members of the Entrepreneurial Center at Southern Maine Community College. Michelle never fails to motivate and inspire us to move forward no matter the challenges we face. We are grateful to have Michelle as a mentor and coach.”
Bob Lothrop, Chasin’ the Ring BBQ

Michelle has been working with me on developing my business for the past year now. The input and general enthusiasm Michelle has shown me has been unthinkable, and she has pushed me to the limit of what I thought possible and beyond. She is a creative and energetic person who has helped me make my dream a reality. I have enjoyed and learned from Michelle and recommend her work to anyone who is serious about their business or life.”
Tylor McKenzie, Brand U

Michelle Neujahr turned our team of real estate agents into a powerful company with 15% market share in under a year. Michelle quickly brought our business to the next level as a business by helping us define and document our business processes and organizational structure. The structure and processes that Michelle helped us to establish had a huge impact almost from day one – improved efficiencies, a more consistent product, better client communication, and clear lines of responsibility, which lead to improved efficiencies, a more consistent product, and better client communications. Sullivan Multi Family Realty is a twice the business today because of Michelle’s contributions.”
Brit Vitalius, Sullivan Multi Family Realty

I feel more energized than I think I ever have to go out and find new clients. That is a result of all the progress Michelle has helped me make in the past year!”
