Business Coaching for Virtual Assistants

Feel like you're on a bit of a plateau in your business?

You've got ideas and dreams, but things are just not happening for you.

You know something needs to change, but you just can't quite put your finger on what.

I can help you unlock that change and get you back in motion.

You soak up all the self-help books, blogs, podcasts and videos and while they are helpful, they only go so far.

Your business is unique. You're unique. What you need is for someone to focus on helping you see your own blind spots. To help you see what your next steps are. 

Someone who won't judge you. Someone who has been there before and know exactly how it feels. Someone who will be your strategic mind, your confidante, your cheer squad, and your accountability buddy.

 

I can be that person for you.

Work with me 1:1 and I'll help you unlock your bigger picture, overcome challenges that are holding you back, and help you discover a clear path towards the fulfillment, flexibility and financial stability that you're looking for.

What clients have said

"I recently had a two hour strategy session with Michelle and to say I was happy with the outcome is an understatement! Michelle helped me work through the process of niching my services and I walked away with so much clarity about the path forward. We even managed to prepare an extensive action plan which I am now working through. The report that she provided after the session is fabulous because I can go back and refer to it when I need to. Thanks so much Michelle, you made a daunting task super easy!" -

Business Coaching

Long-term business coaching will help you detangle and prioritise your ideas, implement your strategies, and achieve your goals while working through the fears and self-doubts that are holding you back from building the business you dream of.

Would you love to transform your business into one that attracts clients you love working with? One that lets you offer only the services that bring you joy? How about earning more money but not working your butt off for it?

Sounds pretty nice, hey? 

That's the kind of result I plan on helping you get through long-term coaching. My clients do really well with my one-off sessions, but when you want to really transform your business into one you only ever dreamt about, it takes time and accountability.

That's why 3 or 6 month coaching are so transformational - because I'm right there helping you through the hurdles and the celebrations that happen when you're making changes in your business. 

In our time together I'll work with you to get clear on your vision for your business, and help you implement the strategies that will get you from where you are now, to where you really want to be. We're going to create a plan of action and set goals that will motivate you (but not overwhelm you).

What to expect

Each coaching session runs for 1.5 hours and is held virtually in Zoom (video conferencing app). 

When you book your coaching package using the link below, you'll choose between a 3 or 6 month option. After purchasing your session, you'll receive a nice little welcome email from me and a coaching guide. This email also provides the link for you to book your very first session, yay!

Duration: You can purchase a coaching package of 3 or 6 months in duration.

Frequency: Fortnightly meetings

What clients have said...

"I look forward to our sessions, and being able to track and monitor my progress. I am proud to say I’m reaching milestones that a year ago would have seemed impossible.

The biggest change for me has been seeing the potential in myself and my business. I now see myself actively carving out a space that allows me to be the specialist I am, in a way that is natural and authentic to me. I don’t feel guilty about not doing all the things, or working with everyone who approaches me.

My confidence in knowing my value is becoming a more innate and natural feeling. I am clear in my vision for the business, and able to dream bigger because I believe in what I am doing."

Marianne's journey in business

It turns out that taking the leap to launch my own VA business was actually the easy part!

Understanding how to reach the people I wanted to help, and working out what makes me stand out from the crowd was so much harder! I knew what I was good at, and I knew that my skills were usable, but I felt like I had to be all the things to all the people in order to make it work.

I was fortunate that I had been discussing my leap into my own business with my existing network for some time, and when I first started out I had great support and projects to work on, so I was able to get up and running.

It was once I started getting into the swing of things that I realised, I wasn’t doing what I wanted, I was doing what was coming my way. Working through the workshops in the Espresso Lounge helped me clarify my why, and how I can achieve that on my own terms. I learned how niching wasn’t excluding work, it was making me more attractive to the clients and work I want to do.

The 1-1 coaching sessions have allowed me to voice some deep-seated fears about my own value, and to work through them in a safe space, so that I can learn from them, and use what I discover to move towards my business vision.

Over the last 9 months, I’ve worked through some major personal and business blocks that were stopping me from being able to truly step into my business. Fear of success, a history of being ‘behind the scenes’, and a genuine belief that people wouldn’t be interested in paying for my knowledge have all been unpacked, piece by piece. In our regular strategy sessions, we are now in a space where we can really drill down into actionable ‘homework tasks’ that keep me accountable, and are always tied back to my vision and mission.

In this time, we have managed to:

  • Define my vision and mission in a way that I can use it easily in conversation
  • Set a primary goal for the business, with actionable ‘chunks’ for each month
  • Identified key targets for different elements of my business that will all lead to the primary goal
  • Reviewed and reflected, tracked and analysed all elements of the business – finances, services, communications, opportunities
  • Identified opportunities both inside and outside my comfort zone, and checked in against these as each action item progresses
  • Celebrated wins, and shared so many GIFs!

I look forward to our sessions, and being able to track and monitor my progress. I am proud to say I’m reaching milestones that a year ago would have seemed impossible.

The biggest change for me has been seeing the potential in myself and my business. I now see myself actively carving out a space that allows me to be the specialist I am, in a way that is natural and authentic to me. I don’t feel guilty about not doing all the things, or working with everyone who approaches me. My confidence in knowing my value is becoming a more innate and natural feeling. I am clear in my vision for the business, and able to dream bigger because I believe in what I am doing.

I have no doubt at all that none of this would have been possible without Michelle’s workshops, training and coaching.

Hi, I'm Michelle!

I'm your Business Coach, your confidante, your cheer squad, your accountability buddy, and the mentor who has walked the path before you to make your journey a lot smoother.

I love working with B2B services, like Virtual Assistants, because I spent so much of my entrepreneurial life as one. I've been running a business for nearly 15 years.

I started out as a Graphic Designer when I was 21. I had been running that on the side until I had my kids. Then I went full-time as a creative VA and grew my business to be fully-booked with amazing clients who I adored.

But then 2 years ago I transitioned from being a Virtual Assistant, to coaching them! Now I dedicate my skills to helping VAs, OBMs, designers, writers and consultants become fully-booked full-time businesses with amazing clients they adore. It's beautiful symmetry.
