Welcome! My name's Michele

It's my core mission to show women that they have the power to design a life they love. I focus on every aspect of women's empowerment - from creating a flexible work schedule to accommodate family & personal time, to igniting my clients' passions and creating a lasting, impactful, financially secure businesses.

I want women from all different backgrounds to gain greater confidence, financial success, and happiness within their lives. I develop my clients' ability to create well-rounded lives; physically, emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, financially, and within their relationships to themselves, their tribe, and their careers.

Ever since I was a little girl, I've wanted to help others. I learned about the power of investing following a robust career in the insurance industry as a licensed agent. With a strong, unrelenting desire to run my own business, I eventually gained several more licenses and certifications, eventually running my own office as Financial Advisor.

Still wanting to make a more meaningful impact, I opened my own franchise with my high-school sweetheart & husband, Rocky.

After we established this business, I had an epiphany. I realized that after nearly 2 decades of conversations with women who were grappling with financial difficulties, the majority that I had spoken with were really missing something. These women (and the financial / investment industry as a whole) were putting the cart before the horse. Let me explain.

Women, by in large, face considerably different challenges than men. I had been teaching this in my Wealthy Women classes for years. Women are often the primary caregivers for their children, their spouses, their parents, and even their in-laws. Women would have smaller retirement accounts, less time off, and lower salaries due to time away from their careers. Plus women have less time to receive a critical education on finance & investments in the first place.

While women often handle the day to day household budget and checking account, they often choose to delegate the long-term finance & investment role to someone else, if at all. The reasons for this varies, but most often women find that they have no more of themselves to give - both to themselves and to their future. It was frustrating to see so many women give away their future with such nonchalance.

Meanwhile, my own life was about to get a major shakeup. Rocky and I had it all - self employed, happily married, living in my 2-story Mediterranean dream home, traveling often, and working hard in our successful business. Then, after 10 years of marriage, Rocky's mother passed away from an aggressive brain tumor, just before our first baby girl was born.

My mother-in-law's death reconnected me to my spiritual self. It re-ignited my thirst for learning, and encouraged me to dive into neuroscience, metaphysics, religious practices, spiritual gurus, and coaching.

Over the next 6 years, I gained my coaching certification, which enabled me to offer mindset coaching - a key missing ingredient that I was unable to offer my clients before. I also used this new knowledge to improve our workaholic lives that were starting to impact Rocky and I negatively. Once I set in motion all the practices I had learned, Rocky and I transformed our careers. At one point I was even down to a 3-day workweek!

Before I could gain serious traction with my new coaching practice, Rocky and I almost lost our second daughter to a seizure. The experience was truly traumatizing, and we learned shortly thereafter that she had epilepsy and mild cerebral palsy. My experience as a mindset coach helped tremendously with this challenge, as we were soon inundated with doctor's appointments, therapy sessions, and regular seizures that kept us on edge constantly. We let ourselves experience the overwhelm, process the grief, and allow ourselves time to heal.

Now, our schedules are back in our control, and we've manifested more growth and success than we could have ever imagined. Our daughter is over a year seizure-free and we hope she will one day learn to talk and walk on her own.

While it will surely be a lifelong process, the tools I was able to implement during this tragedy helped save my family from emotional and financial decline. The entire experience has given me an infinite source of passion to share these practices with my friends and clients - to serve my community and women all over the world by offering one-on-one coaching, cooperative emotional healing, and in-depth financial consulting.

I'm here to make it your time to shine.

Can you imagine your life with a much higher income, relaxing vacations, the power to delegate tasks to a motivated team, a clear direction, a fulfilling purpose, and time for fun & passion in your day-to-day life?

Don't let yourself let go of your dream!

Work with me to design a life you love.
