Meet the Real Michelle Clarke
I am an all in kinda gal, and I L O V E coaching and empowering women in business because I know that we are ones that will make a difference in the world, and that it is our time to shine. I live in the light these days acting 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 & structure. Having been in business successfully for 25 years and coaching for over 10 years now, 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.
So what does a Business Coach do?
Well, coach you to success, all of you. That means that I coach you to become the kickass business boss 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 my coaching like with Michelle Clarke? My clients tell me that I have three super powers:
1. Spotting the root of a challenge and solving it real quick;
2. Creating easy and effective systems that really work;
3. Helping you to find your real voice, and your own super powers to make your business F*U*N again.
But what does that mean for my tribe? It means that they 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.
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.
The Michelle Clarke Difference
The difference that I bring to my clients is that I believe that they already have everything they need inside them to be effective right now.
They don’t need a shiny new tool, they need an opportunity to get out of their own way, a bit of support to create strong systems that will reduce the overwhelm of being a woman in business, and to be encouraged to reveal the authentic and powerful them that was there all along.
- 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 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… but I am all about the purpose work, really. Ok, so who is Michelle Clarke when she rolls out of bed?
I work more than 60 hours a week, get up at 5 am every day and work so much 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 16 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 find out more about how I roll in Business Out Loud & Authentic.
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
Let me make this really clear, you have the ability to succeed because you are resourceful and committed, so I know that you will get results even on your own, what coaching does is loans you the POWER to get there faster.
It highlights that which you may not be able to see.
It will allow you to be really honest with yourself.
It allows you the space to grow, learn, explore, and discover with support.
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.
