Everything in your business is… fine, I guess

You’ve got some clients; folks are buying what you offer. Your voice studio is… thriving?

orange star

Yet if you’re honest with yourself…

those singing coach clients or voice teacher clients  bring you money, but they don’t bring you joy.

pink star

And if you’re 3-AM-level honest with yourself?

You’re pretty sure it’s not worth the mental energy it takes to work with those clients. That’s one part yikes and one part true.

You’ve got a beautiful collection of planners,

each lovingly decorated (with washi tape even!), yet those projects never seem to get done because on the inside you’d rather have a vocal hemorrhage than create a set of goals.

You are so over the toxic positivity of RALLY RALLY LITTLE SALLY.

If one more well meaning friend sends you one more link to purchase a shabby chic repurposed wood pallet sign that says live laugh love…

Pointer that tells the visitor to scroll downward.

For you, the solution to these entrepreneur problems cannot be predatory marketing and sales, bullshit pushy copy, undercharging out of “niceness”, or passive aggressive communications. As a voice teacher, or someone with voice teacher clients, you understand that running a voice studio is more than a set of goals.

What you REALLY need is understanding how to serve your customers with integrity and (what I call) radical hospitality.

You’re in the right place.

When we cut through the noise, we get straight to the hell-yes heart of concrete action steps—and the planets align, the path is clear, and your inner business BeastyBoss (™) ENTREPRENEUR is unleashed.

Hi, I’m Michelle Markwart Deveaux. I’m a singer. A voice maven. A mentor. A strategist. Shoot, I’m even a little bit motivational speaker.

I’m a potent cocktail – equal parts divine woo and get your shit done, with a no-bullshit paper umbrella and an organic maraschino cherry on top. Mwah.

There are no more quick fixes here. You’ve tried that. Sure, it helped at first—but like a caffeine high wearing off at 3pm, you’re left in a slump with a post-buzz headache and a longing for a cheap bottle of wine to wash away the day.

Permission granted to ditch that cheap wine and open the Hope and Grace Russian River Pinot because you are now celebrating instead of complaining. When you work with us, you start building a sustainable (and, stay with me, life-giving) voice business—by tending to your soul as much as you tend to the marketing, systems, and the to-do lists.

Cheers!
