Dollars have never been so disruptive.

Any asshat can make money.

And money can make anyone an asshat.

Money has never meant more than what it means now – how you make it and what you do with it.

Plenty of people use their dollars to divide. Their version of disruption comes in the form in power grabbing, discrimination, and ego boosting.

But not you and I.

We seek to disrupt, oh yes we do. We seek honorable policies, impactful offers, and leveraging capitalism to disrupt, well, the gross version of capitalism. (We rather like the capitalism that says you can do the thing and love the people and make the money all at the same time.)

You lay in bed and worry that you’ll never figure out your business model. That your mission is unclear. That you’re not pricing properly. That you may actually have to start marketing and selling. Which you might be willing to do, if you could do it without the nausea.

Then, you lay in bed and worry that at the end of that day, once you’ve figured out your business model and pricing, you’ve got your mission in view, and you start marketing and selling, you’ll have a pile of money with nothing meaningful to show for it.

You’ve got a deep longing for magical outcomes.

We do too!

Magical outcomes become reality when we work a strategic combo of three concepts:

  • Business Savvy
  • Tenacity
  • Radical Hospitality

Each of these concepts has a client facing component, an internal business facing component, and a sizable list of action items. (Sorry.)

It’s my team and my job to make sure you’ve got a healthy dose of all of the above.

Option One

  • (which we HIGHLY recommend):

Explore Your Options: Book a Quick N’ Dirty Session

My preference is that you book an initial one-on-one coaching call with me, Michelle. Partly because I wanna e-meet your fabulous face. Mostly because I want to be be sure we achieve the following:


Solve some immediate problems so you gain some headway – yep! A real, live business coaching call.


Experience one another so we can see if FcK is the fck-ing right place for you. (Ha! Dirty birdie!)


Determine your next best step – whether that is joining The SpeakEasy Cooperative®, participating in the How to Run Your Voice Biz Without Hating Your Boss Accelerator program, continuing with one on one coaching, or a combo of these things.

This call is over Zoom (tech willing!),
60 minutes (give or take), and is $300. It assumes reasonable follow up to get you where you need to go next.

Option Two

Get to the Goodies immediately: Join The SpeakEasy Cooperative®

While our first call is my preference, I understand that you may have interacted with a bunch of the free content out there that is available on the blog and socials, and you know you’d like to just get started already, geez, so you can skip that step if ya really wanna.
