Our Clients Say it Best

"Of all the consultants that we have hired over the years, I can state with full conviction that Michelle is absolutely the best of the best.  Beyond the obvious results that her coaching has provided to me, my team, and our overall leadership development– her impact has changed our company culture from “tired and resigned”, to “fully charged and excited” about our future.  There’s just not a dollar figure that can be placed on that feeling."

Brian Gorski, CEO, Capital City Carpet

"Michelle Payne is the best professional business coach I've observed and I've benefited from her many skills.

With 35 years as a professional communicator I've used several coaches for various fine-tuning, including magazine writing and professional speaking. My experience includes as a leadership member of the National Speakers Association NSA) nationally, and as President of the award-winning NSA Sacramento Chapter.

Michelle combines the 'hold you accountable for your commitments' of a Marine Drill Sergeant at the same time she supports, nurtures, cares and acts as a one-woman cheering section as she helps you define your goals, then helps get you across the finish line you've chosen.

She is an exceptional coach who is about 'you' and your goals 100 percent of the time."

Bob McCafferty, McCafferty & Co. Communications

I've been taking my practice to higher levels, thanks to Michelle's coaching. My practice grew 20% in year 2005, 58% in 2006. I plan to increase another 50% this year, and I'm already 70% ahead of last year's YTD results. Michelle listens to my goals, encourages me to take challenges and continue to grow myself and my business.

From writing a business plan to role playing sales calls, , Michelle has helped with it all. She posses a well rounded business acumen and excellent communication skills.


Most impressive to me is Michelle's extraordinary way of inspiring and challenging me. She continues to help me develop solid business practices and pushes me to reach higher.

Michelle is a gifted coach and I highly recommend her to anyone looking toward the future.”
