The first ever…

Speaking and Thought Leadership Membership

specifically for coaches and wellness entrepreneurs … because you are meant to change a whole lot of lives.

Becoming well known in the ever-growing sea of coaches & wellness entrepreneurs is tricky. The online world is a busy, crowded place and often it feels overwhelmingly difficult to be noticed, let alone to attract attention to your business and expertise.

Yet, standing out is the best way to make the biggest difference through your business.

In Coaches Leadership Collective we help you become a sought-after expert in your industry and grow a thriving business with big impact.

When you step into leadership as a speaker and thought leader, your people will take notice. You’ll make better connections and open up new opportunities, like great stages, that make a tremendous difference in your business.

Thrive as a leader and entrepreneur in the most life-changing work on this earth: coaching & wellness!!!

You got into coaching and wellness because it’slife-changing work!

More than ever, you want to make a difference. And, you know that the support, education, lessons-learned and stories you can share with your people really, truly can make their lives better. You want that for them.

You want to be a beacon of hope when it feels like nothing will ever help. You want the people you are meant to serve to know you are out there, ready, willing and full of heart and soul to help them live into the lives they dream of creating.

But, standing out as someone who really can help in a growing field of coaches and wellness experts is much harder than you expected. You know it’s not about competition, yet you also feel deep inside that your specific story is meant to shine bright for your people.

You are right…

The people you are meant to serve are waiting for you. You just aren’t sure how to let them know you are there and can help.

It’s challenging to do this without
guidance & support !

You see the same coaches and wellness experts who are asked to be on all of the podcasts, stages and online summits. And sometimes, you begin to doubt yourself, asking questions like:

How does a person break into these speaking opportunities?
How do I create a message that sets me apart from the crowd and feels really right on for me?
What if I say something wrong and have no idea how to fix it?
Are my stories strong enough – are they even worth telling?
How does a person move into that next level of visibility – and stay consistent with it?

That’s where Coaches Leadership Collective
comes in.

It feels like there’s some kind of secret that only a select few know and they aren’t sharing. The fact is: That’s kind of the truth.

There IS a secret to getting these great opportunities that allow you to get on those great online and IRL stages. To turning your business into a naturally, more easily growing venture.

Here’s where the good news comes in…

The “secret” is LEADERSHIP. When you are recognized as a leader in your industry, it’s the most natural thing in the world for others to invite you to be on a podcast, speak on an awesome conference stage, or to ask you to teach a course or program for a new audience.

These are all amazing ways to grow your audience, your influence, your impact and your business.

We are here to not only bring you in on the secret, but to show you HOW to get onto those kinds of stages and get great writing and publishing opportunities as well.

Because while the path to getting there isn’t easy (if it were, everyone would already be there), it is actually quite simple. In fact, I’ll lay this path out for you now so that you can see just how simple it is. I call this The Path to Thought Leadership.

The Path to Thought Leadership



Take a stand for something that matters


Commit to serve through that stand


Go where they gather and serve

I’ve been coaching, teaching and mentoring coaches and wellness experts on this path for more than 12 years. I can tell you from working with over 1,000 speakers, many of them high-level industry leaders, founders and TEDx speakers, that the kind of clarity and focus that this path brings is exactly what helps you become a Recognized Leader.

Hire Michelle for any major talk that you need to give.

I killed it on that stage because Michelle helped me frame my rooftop message. She helped me deliver a talk that made sense, and that rallied an audience to buy into the idea that if we want to solve major world problems, we have to help girls and women stop dieting. None of that would have happened without her loving, but firm guidance. Hire Michelle for any major talk that you need to give.

CEO, Susan Hyatt Inc & Susan Hyatt The Agency

Recognized Leaders get asked to share their stories and lessons learned with other leaders’ audiences.

This means invitations to podcast interviews, online summits, and being on stage at popular conferences (when we get to do that again!). Opportunities of that sort can change your impact and your business—and FAST.

Here’s what you get every month as part of
Coaches Leadership Collective :

A New

Fresh new content, delivered live on topics such as: How to craft a captivating talk, Getting on the TEDx stage, Self-publish or Traditionally publish – pros & cons, Social Media presence and so much more! Delivered by Michelle and other high level experts.

Live Hotseat Coaching

A live group coaching session with Michelle with the opportunity for a hotseat, every month. These coaching sessions are a powerful way to release any blocks you have to being highly visible and taking your stand as a leader.

Done-For-You Visibility Plan

Every single month you’ll receive a fresh new customizable plan, with social media post prompts, attention-grabbing headlines, Facebook & Instagram Live topic ideas + new social media design templates you can customize! (No more not knowing what to say!)

(with prizes!)

Every month you will be invited into a challenge of sorts – an invitation to take action on our focus for the month. There will be prizes and ways to encourage one another, plus resource to help you be successful. These challenges aren’t just novelties, of course. Every one of them futhers your mission to be a leader in your industry. It just makes it more fun along the way!

Brilliant Private Community of Thought Leaders

Leadership can be lonely – but not when you surround yourself with big-hearted, mission-driven people like yourself. In our private Facebook group, you will be able to share your ideas, ask for feedback or just to have us cheer you on. Michelle and the CLC team will be in the group every single weekday, answering questions and providing encouragement. This kind of community is GOLD on your path to thought leadership!

“Some of the best work that I did, definitely, in 2019 was with Michelle.”

The first conversation we had made me realize that what I really have to say is so much bigger. She really helped me get to the heart of my message—what the real big message was. It was the best day ever. When I went up to do that talk, I had all the confidence in the world. I knew it like the back of my hand. It also helped me shape the outline of my book. Some of the best work that I did, definitely, in 2019 was with Michelle.

Rachel Rodgers

CEO, Hello Seven

You don’t have to do this alone anymore!

I’ve worked with some of the best coaches in the industry, and I’ve supported speakers appearing on TEDx stages and other highly coveted conferences.

You’ll have a better plan to follow than you ever have before, and we’ll be with you every step of the way.

The resources and support are rich inside the

Coaches Leadership Collective

…but our goal is to help you stay focused only on needle-moving activities. The focus is on bite-sized learning, experimentation and support.

Because we know that, while the journey can be twisty and turny, there IS a success path on the adventure into industry leadership.

It looks like This :






Coaches Leadership Collective is built to support you on this path, no matter where you are on the journey as you join us. You will have resources, support and exciting “experiments” to partake of every single month.

We love to see our clients thrive !

There are a lot of speaking coaches out there, but there are so few people like you who come to it from the unique perspective of each person. Instead of just teaching a formula, the formula is being more of you. It’s connecting with people at the heart and seeing who they really are and what their message is and how they need to present it. I love the stand that you take for that. So that’s why we have you on the team.

Angela Lauria

Founder & CEO, The Author Incubator @

I knew Michelle would deliver on her promise that we would have a talk, and I wanted that. But I didn’t expect to feel so confident standing in front of women delivering that talk.

Denise Lampron

Founder, The Art of Mindful Aging @

Michelle had an ability to take my mess and make art out of it. She was very intuitive and helped me shape and formulate my message.

Gayle Canton, MFT

I knew I had a message to share, but I wasn’t feeling very clear and didn’t know where to start. I like to have a plan; a system. I knew Michelle had a really clear process that was also very nurturing and organic and would really help me determine what my core message was – plus a real strategic plan for how I would craft the talk and the pieces around it. She’s so much more than a speaking coach – she’s a message and thought leadership coach, which is exactly what I needed.

What I love most about being a part of the collective are the incredible resources and inspiration we get access to every month, the total lack of judgement and the ever presence of positive feedback and support, and, of course, Michelle and her light tying it all together for us week after week. It’s hard to find spots where I feel welcome in the world these days and CLC is one of those beautiful, bright spots for me.
