As Seen In


We all live dual lives. We have a work life, where we meet with clients, make decisions and take care of business. We are competent, decisive and efficient.

We also have a personal life, where we support family and friends, nurture our dreams and nurse our disappointments. We are passionate, purpose-driven and sometimes overwhelmed.

In my programs, we look deeply into all aspects of your life so you can build a business you love that’s powered by your passions, and create a lifestyle you love that’s powered by your business.

Here are my two lives—business and personal. The magic happens in the way they come together.

The Rest Of The Story

What do you REALLY want?

  • Want to be successful without the suit (and all the corporate drama that goes with it)?
  • Want to “work from wherever” (beach, boardroom, bed—your call)?
  • Want to love your business and your life (enjoying family, fun and financial freedom)?
  • What to make money making a difference (passion, purpose AND profit)? 

Then you’re in the right place.

Hi. I’m Mischelle. I help smart professionals like you escape unfulfilling jobs and lacklustre lifestyles. Why? Because I’ve been there, done that and know you deserve more from life

These days, I run a successful online business, serving dream clients and travelling the world with my family—most recently enjoying several adventure-filled weeks on Easter Island and Antarctica.

But I didn’t always have such a wonderful life. It took a lot of really hard work to get here. I earned several academic credentials, read hundreds of books, attended countless seminars and spent over $100,000 learning from the best. I had big dreams. But, I lacked clarity, confidence and a proven roadmap to success, so I was stuck and struggling.

I spent decades trapped in draining jobs, crushed by debt and dreading my life. Eventually, my health collapsed, my relationships failed and my finances fell apart. I was broke, burnt out and overwhelmed.

After years of struggle, the answer finally came. I developed a step-by-step system to turn what I ALREADY knew into my dream business and used the profits to fund my ideal lifestyle.

Amazing things started to happen. People started asking me to help them create thriving businesses and extraordinary lifestyles. I found my purpose. I started loving my life again. I started profiting from my passions. You can too. Let’s talk at
