Growth Catalyst

Six months of powerful coaching + mentorship for generating momentum and creating a solid and lasting business foundation

Harsh truth: It’s not enough to simply be great at what you do.
Harsher truth: Businesses led by remarkably talented people fail every day. 

The saving grace? Creating a solid foundation for your business so you can deliver consistent results, have a steady flow of clients, and fill your damn piggy bank already. 

That’s what Growth Catalyst is here for—to help coaches, consultants, thought leaders, and service professionals outsmart the hustle and get clear—and actionable—direction, a solid business model structure, and gloriously predictable cash flow.

Because you’re too great to go down in flames. Consider this the best way to fireproof your business, so at the end of our 6 months together you’ll be untouchable. 

The Growth Catalyst program is your answer if…

  • You’re consistently making less than $10k per month and struggling to gain traction and create consistent revenue
  • You constantly feel that there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done
  • You’re always working—what’s it like to have the laptop closed?
  • You feel like you’re always reinventing the wheel
  • You never have time to improve your products or process because you’re always frantically planning for the next event or hustling after that next client
  • Taking time off gives you serious anxiety
  • Your revenue is invoice-to-invoice or month-to-month and that’s stressful as hell
  • The capacity of your business growth is dependent on your personal time, energy and attention
  • You don’t have a solid flagship offer—that irresistible thing you’re KNOWN for

Because if I know you like I think I do, I’m betting you..

  • Want to set the foundation for a long-term, ethical, sustainable business (one that doesn’t destroy your life balance),
  • Are committed to a bold and giant-hearted vision,
  • Want to serve generously while generating wealth and prosperity,
  • Desire to create more freedom and impact while transforming lives in the process,
  • Are willing to roll up your sleeves and create some serious momentum in your business,
  • Operate with 100% integrity. (You’re what I call an impact entrepreneur.),
  • Are dedicated to executing at a high level—you just need some guidance on how to do so effectively and consistently.

Growth Catalyst is laser-focused to get you both firmly rooted and actively thriving. It includes:

Three, 60-minute private coaching sessions per month (18 sessions total)

This is a confidential space for you to learn and apply new strategies, tools and skills for your specific business and goals. I’ll guide you through the process of creating the focus and structure necessary to joyfully create a more profitable and impactful business. The key elements of this coaching experience will be creating results via shifts in your mindset along with accountability, focus, and execution.  (Alternatively these sessions can be broken into 2 ninety-minute sessions per month if that’s better for your schedule.)

Access to a private Trello account

This is our space for collaboration, document sharing, and project tracking.

An introductory, 90-minute onboarding session

Together, we’ll assess exactly where your business is currently, and determine the most high-impact action plan for you that will allow you to gain momentum and get meaningful, mindblowing results.

6 Months of ‘Ask Michael Anything’

This is exactly what it sounds like—a full 6 months of personal email and text support from yours truly.

Personal introductions to Michael’s private network

You’ll will be personally connected with relevant people in my network in order to expand your community, expand your business network and elevate the visibility of your work.

A comprehensive business assessment and 90-Day planning

It’s time to make your desired outcomes inevitable. At the outset of our coaching partnership, you’ll get your hands dirty with an extensive business assessment. This will lay the foundation for everything we do in the following months including what play, adventure, and ‘a dream life’ looks like for you specifically. You’ll also create a 90-Day Plan for your business which is a proven framework for identifying 90-day outcomes, strategies, and processes that will allow to you create tremendous focus and momentum in your business (making big results inevitable). I’ll guide you through this framework and you’ll also learn how to implement a system for tracking your results so you know precisely how much impact your smart hustle is making.

Check-ins or quick coaching

These are as needed before important milestones (via phone or video conference, whatever is most useful).

Investment: $1,500 per month
or $8,500 if paid in full

Does this sound like an answer from the heavens? Or, less hyperbolically: exactly what your business needs right now?

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOU CLICK THE BIG ORANGE BUTTON?

You’ll book a time to chat with me about your business,
I’ll send you a short questionnaire where you’ll tell me a little bit about your business,
We’ll have a super fun phone or Zoom date,
If you and I are a ‘match,’ we’ll formalize things and schedule your first session (boo-yah!)

“I would definitely encourage you to work with Michael. He will help you see your full potential and hold a higher vision for you and your business. And as a business owner, you need someone who’s got your back.”

“Michael’s coaching will help you develop a business that is truly meaningful to you. Being in business for yourself can be lonely but Michael helped me through all the ups and downs. 

Deep down, I knew that it was possible for me to build a business, however I had no idea how long it would take or what specific actions should be done, and in what order. Now I have a clear picture about how I will reach my goals and I know exactly what to do next. In fact, I have a roadmap that gives me more confidence and has saved me so much time.

And the most important thing for me was the traction I was able to gain so quickly. I highly recommend Michael’s coaching. I doubt there’s anything else comparable out there.”
