Who the Hell is Michelle Clarke
Howdy, I might as well tell you right up front that I’m an all-in kinda gal! I L O V E (like really really really love) empowering women in business. because I know that we are the ones here to make a difference in the world, and I also know that it is our time to shine. I live in the light these days boldly and authentically, and everyday is a joy to live… the reason I show up everyday and bound out of bed at 5am is because I want that for you to.
I am all about the results, I am a rebel rule breaker in business and I am addicted to systems & structures that make things F L O W. Having been in business successfully for 25 years and coaching for over 10 years, I have seen it all. And let me tell you, success is much easier than you have been led to believe and your business can (and should) work for you and bring you immense joy not stress. My purpose in life is to empower you to greatness so you can get your gifts out there into the world and get on with making a difference in peoples lives. If you want someone who has your best interests at heart and will therefore support you AND call you out and hold you accountable (with love and humour) then you have landed on the right page.
I love ALL trees & animals, connecting with nature, being healthy and vibrant, and living life to the fullest, finding the joy in the little things and eeking fun out of every single day! – you can find out even more below.
Hi! I'm Michelle
I know (and so do you) that you are here to change the world, even if that does scare you some days. You know that you HAVE to make this business a reality, you are committed to changing things for the better, shaking up the status quo, and you can see your success clearly.
Then there are the days when you stumble and trip, and you doubt that you can pull this off, you get overwhelmed, and then procrastinate, and then beat yourself up and down and round and round - but you always get back on the horse cause, well, you gotta! You are here to change the world and your passion is bigger than your bullshit!
I know you can do it, and I even know that you can even do it alone (eventually), but you will get to the money making, hell yes living part, so much quicker with me on your team empowering you to smash kickass goals out of the park, growing your success mindset and self belief, and sharing all the tech tools, marketing shortcuts and strategies to power you forward.
It is time to step into your Queen energy and shine!
Together, we shall rise,
So what does a Holistic Business Coach do?
Well, coach you to success, all of you. That means that I coach you to become the kickass business Queen you are born to be, AND coach you to up-level your life at the same time. You are your business, so if you are not doing well in your life, wellness, boundaries, wealth creation, or mindset, then your business results will reflect that.
What is coaching like with Michelle Clarke?
My clients tell me that I have four super powers:
1. Busting the bullshit holding you back and helping you to own your awesome (believing in yourself)
2. Cutting out the crap and helping you to focus on what is important so that you can move the needle forward in your business instead of drowning in busy work
3. Getting you to take aligned and bold actions which will bring you the results you seek
4. Meshing strategies & effective systems with the mindset – it is the double whammy that gets the golden results
But what does that mean for you? It means that you get powerful results every time. Working with me involves both immediate results when we create unique business strategies which are a perfect fit for you and your own tribe, and long term results through working on powerful mindset shifts, which allow for evolution into the confident businesswoman who nails it in business, and makes a massive impact in the world.
Because, honestly, you CAN have it all, purpose and profit, success and love, and I want to show you how.
The Michelle Clarke Difference
Well my clients tell me that I am up front, always honest, always challenge and the push the point when that is needed, and always offer back up and support when that is needed too. I guess the real difference between myself and other coaches is that I am not afraid to say what needs to be said, because growing you into the confident and successful business owner who changes the world is more important to me than ANYTHING else. Oh, I am kinda like a dog with a bone, I won’t rest until you succeed. And the final point of difference is that I mash together success mindset with the real meaty biz strategies and systems that multi national corporates do in a model specificially crafted to fit purpose led buisnesses like yours!
Why I Do This
I am off-the-Richter-scale passionate about changing the world, to increase the vibration that we operate at, to have everyone living authentically and sharing their gifts, accepting and being accepted, celebrating and valuing differences, creating massive wealth and massive love.
We are moving into a new era in evolution and we need to reboot and upgrade in order to thrive, and my passion is to help purpose-driven women to power-up their businesses because I know that the world needs what they are offering.
Here are a few quirky things you might want to know about me:
- I dropped out of school at 16 as a straight-A student to become a beauty therapist, much to everyone’s horror. I had planned this all out at 9 because I wanted to make people feel great, and I still do this even to this day. Oh yeah, I had saved up $10K to do the course myself by this age (that was enough to put a deposit on a house back then).
- I had our family 90% self sufficient at one stage, making cheese, wine, growing all vege and protein.
- I love to kiss animals, and my most treasured pet was my milking goat Belinda.
- I have a strange sense of humour and I love nothing more than to laugh. In fact, it is pretty hard to get me to be serious, I find the joy/fun in every situation (or find a way not to be involved). If something is fun then it will have the right energy and it will flow.
- I am a real homebody and love routine. It sets me free and allows me to achieve great things, but I have also travelled to over 30 countries and have lived and worked in 3 countries.
- I was married, mortgaged, pregnant and had my first company by 26.
- I have managed 3 of the biggest colleges in NZ and have over 19 quals including an MBA and a Teaching Degree.
- I have a wild NZ pony (my Kaimaniwa Bramble – that’s her at the top) who bit me so hard when I first met her it took several weeks to even close up, and now she is the biggest kissy monster ever, and sulks when you stop kissing her.
- I can often be found bareback barrel racing or doing archery from my horse.
- I am under 5 ft tall, 4.9 to be exact, I think that is officially 1 inch off being a midget!
Who I am
I was supposed to be introducing myself, wasn’t I? Oops… Well, as you can see I am pretty high vibe, I take results seriously but I take living in joy just as seriously as results! I am all about the purpose work and living our best lives so that we can change the world. Ok, so who is Michelle Clarke when she rolls out of bed?
I get up at 5 am every day and exercise, then do my mindset work and visioning, and get to my desk with many fury friends in tow at around 6:30am. Sometimes get so excited about my work I forget to eat because I get bombarded with so much inspiration every day – and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
I also have a family and lifestyle block to run plus two other businesses, but it all works and guess what? I still have time to live a hell yes life and my family accepts, loves, and helps me to do all these things.
I remember when I used to have so much guilt: mother guilt, job guilt, exercise guilt. But now I know that I can have and do it all, and the best bit is my family do not judge me or rebel, they love that I love my work so much and they help me to achieve even more.
In fact, my daughter looks set to follow in my footsteps and honestly, I am more proud of raising this strong and powerful woman who is also here to change the world (she is only 17 and had her first business at 7) than I am of climbing the Himalayas with no sherpas and being mortgage-free by 30.
I live surrounded by native bush with my hubby, our teenage daughter, my horses, dogs and a cat. I am a tree hugger for sure, energy REALLY matters to me, and nature is what fills my tank and allows me to be here to empower my tribe. You can interact with me daily and get daily inspiration in Daily Inspiration From Sparkle Nation.
Anyway, enough of me…
What I really want to do is to help you get fired up and GET YOUR BUSINESS CRANKING, SO Let’s do this
A final word about coaching…
Let me make this really clear, you have the ability to succeed and I am here to help you do just that. I don’t want you to worry that you don’t have what it takes, or that you won’t have enough time, because I am going to teach you all that stuff. What coaching does is:
👑 It highlights the gaps so we can plug them with super cool and aligned marketing, tech tools, and systems.
👑. It will allow you to be really honest with yourself so you can move forward to better results.
👑. It allows you the space to grow, learn, explore, and then implement a successful empire that will serve you.
👑. It is nothing short of life-changing.
👑. It will reveal a strength you never knew you had.
👑. It will make you bold.
👑. It will make you trust yourself.
People often look at the cost of coaching as a barrier to investing in themselves…. without realizing that NOT investing will always cost you more in time, lost sales, frustration, and continuing to cement in the belief that you cannot do it and manifesting more of that in your life.
If you are ready to ditch the hustle and the overwhelm, then you are ready for coaching.
