Breakthrough Business Strategies
Chief of Client Success
Strategy & Innovation
As an Indigenous leader (Choctaw/Cherokee) you will experience a revolutionary mindset - social justice lens in my content and my work. My vision is to have 75% women at ALL decision-making tables, everywhere. Having women serve as our decision-makers as we create new systems and structures to rebuild our world to be sustainably equitable.
If you are an adventurous and revolutionary woman in business who's fed up with the inner chatter that interferes with your momentum when making a big choice - a huge decision that will catapult you in your journey to build legacy wealth to help fund the changes to heal our planet, Mother Earth - then you will want to explore working with Michele.
Making better decisions takes a concentrated effort. Because it is not easy to make good decisions, a lot of people shy away from making them at all. It shows up in the results for their businesses, their team's projects, and the clients they attract.

Revolutionary Solutions Aren't Binary - Listen As We Explore Together What NEXTGEN Leadership Can Look Like For Your Business. >>>>https://growbusiness.lpages.co/its-both-podcast/
Working with leadership teams and organizations that are ready to learn about and activate “entrepreneurial thinking” to reach their NextGen Customers is how to reduce your innovation gap. I am a futurist, human behaviorist, and entrepreneurial philosopher who discovered these strengths from starting and running 6+ businesses over 30+ years. Being a female entrepreneur when we were unicorns and creating a Global Business Radio show that for 10 years led deep-dive discussions with New York best-selling authors and business experts keep my finger on the pulse of change. That pulse uniquely positions me to help you develop the skill of adaptability, resiliency, and speed. Speed is a critical skill to possess in today’s business world in order to remain profitable.
