    Hannah earned her investment back 9x times over in 1 month!
    I started out not knowing which direction to go with my virtual assistant business. After having an hour strategy session with Maria I knew which way to take my virtual assistant business. With Maria's guidance I have gone from zero clients to a team. If it was not for her advice, encouragement, and, sometimes, a little tough love I would not be where I am today. She knows the right questions to ask to get you to your goals, through your goals, and beyond those goals. She is hands down one of the most amazing people in the industry. Without her, I would not be where I am today in my business. 

    Hannah Jenkins
    Course & Coaching Student
    Michelle started working with her ideal client 2 weeks into the course -- and they're still working together almost 1 year later!
    Maria is incredibly talented and a natural coach. Her guidance challenged me to get out of my comfort zone, look beyond the day to day and focus more on building a business that would incorporate all my passions and strengths. Her knowledge and willingness to connect me to her network garnered me my first client within our first few weeks working together. Her uplifting, positive, and fun personality make her easy to open up to and wonderful to work with. She has not only been an amazing coach but also a caring mentor, and the lessons she has provided have inspired and motivated me to live a life aligned with my values and passions. Maria is truly one-of-a-kind, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for an intuitive, sincere, and deeply passionate coach.
