"Michelle is wonderful to work with. She lights up a room - she motivates, excites and leaves everyone with practical tools they can use to grow their businesses."

"The first thing that strikes you about Michelle is 'personality plus.' She has a vivaciousness and joie de vivre that are immediately apparent.... Personality and energy, of course, do not make for success in and of themselves... Michelle is that rare breed who is exceptionally intelligent, able to absorb large amounts of information, analyze a situation, bring creativity and innovation to the table, [and] set and exceed her goals.... She loves people, knows how to motivate them and they respond to her."

"It has been my pleasure to have worked with Michelle during her tenure as Executive Publisher of Ocean Drive Español Magazine. As Michelle had identified a market niche for increased readership we went to work to create a unique golf experience to specifically reach those targets. Over several years I watched Michelle lead her team in implementation of her vision. The strategy worked! New advertisers were secured and long term relationships established for the magazine. I am still impressed with Michelle’s ability to recognize opportunities and her discipline and drive to successfully pursue them. I highly recommend her services to help clients enhance their business strategies and establish plans for success."
