Meet Michelle Simms-Reiter

10 years. $85 million. In a decade, I built a company from nothing to a successful, $85 million enterprise that was eventually acquired by the largest publicly traded company in the industry.

Over the course of my career, I’ve earned many awards – the 40 under 40 Leadership Award, The Women in Business Award, and multiple other Association Leadership Awards.

It’s this real-world experience that I infuse into my unique coaching style.

Now, I’m honored to help you – I can guide you to achieve a sustainable path that not only gets the job done, but exceeds your expectations.

I teach business owners, managers and leaders how to create and maintain a business that their employees love to work for – in a simple way that proves immediate ROI far better than any marketing expense line can ever match.

My program maximizes a tremendous amount of content into a simple, straightforward approach, while also respecting your team’s time and schedule.

Ready to get started? Register now or schedule a meeting to discuss more.

You may be thinking:

  • We don’t have the resources to invest in our team. 
  • We don’t have the time to accomplish these training goals… maybe someday.
  • I’m just too overwhelmed to focus on anyone else’s productivity right now.

You just need the RIGHT support. That’s where we come in!


What Clients Say:

"Since going through the program, I've become more cognizant of my thoughts and emotions. I've been able to let things go and delegate more."
"Start with the Time Management piece. Once you have your weekly meetings, you get pulled in all different directions. It's great to now have the ability to calendar my time. "
Time management was the most valuable course I’ve taken. I was struggling to find balance and be present in what I was doing. The biggest impact it had was the shift in my own life perspective. I started embracing and trusting that I was spending my time where it was most valuable and gained the confidence and clarity to areas that were bleeding together or out of balance. I would recommend this program to anyone willing to invest in - and be honest with - themselves.
