Michelle Marie is the creator of Profitable Coaching Academy and host of the Put Your Passion To Work Podcast, where together we seek to gather inspiration, motivation, along with tangible tips to start and scale your coaching business. With over 18 years of business experience, mindset and business coach Michelle Marie is going to help you transform your passion of helping others, so you too can create a profitable coaching business. Let’s have some fun while we build your business!

Sometimes you need to slow down to speed up. In this episode Michelle talks about taking a business sabbatical and what it means for her life and coaching practice going forward. As always, there is a lesson to be learned, one of which she is still going through - a season of transition and change. Some of the light at the other end of the tunnel has been: Room to breathe, Reassess, and get re-motivated to end 2020 stronger than ever. Michelle truly believes that everything happens for a reason and in this season she had to go through something to learn or teach a lesson. Sometimes she goes through things her clients are feeling and going through to be able to coach them through to the other side.

Everyone's telling you that you need to pick a niche. Maybe you don't need to do that right now. Maybe it will change in 6 months. Maybe you just need to work with anyone who will pay you at this point (been there, LOL). Maybe you want to work with lots of different kinds of people - so then what's the best way to do this if you can't choose a niche?

Learn my super secret tips to choosing a niche, when to do it, my biggest pet peeve about niching down and what to focus on instead.

You never ever, ever, have to diet again according to my next guest! Alisha Carlson is a mom, wife, and 9-to-5er who is putting her passion to work as a non-diet lifestyle coach. I met Alisha last year through a mutual friend inside of a coaching program we invested in. We fast became friends, accountability partners and now we co-host a mastermind group together! #womensupportingwomen

I am so excited to introduce her philosophy to you! 

Alisha has an amazing approach around the concept of mindful eating. Through this mission she helps women learn how to eat healthy and meet their fitness goals - with ZERO dieting! Aside from ditching the diet, she also empowers women to make peace with their bodies long before they reach their goals. 

I am a big believer in "everything in moderation" and so anything that allows me to bring joy into my life (hello, chocolate) along with simplicity and satisfaction is a no-brainer. Sign me up! These very philosophies are the pillars of Alisha's brand and how she has achieved success not only in her own life, but through the lives of her clients with the "Mindful Eating Project."

Passion & Success,



Certified Self-Love Coach (and a former coach of mine!) Amena Apshori is putting her passion to work by helping women receive the gift of self-love.

When Amena went through her inner work journey, she discovered that she had many callings, had a lot of spiritual awakenings and truly connected to her passion - to guide other women to find their purpose and passion and really love themselves through the process of embracing their souls.

Amena shares so much widsom with me in this episode. As you'll see, one of her many talents is helping women reconnect to their feminine energy, so that they can increase their self-worth and confidence.

Exactly one month ago, most kids in the U.S were coming home from school for what we now know, was the last day of the school year. We are living a 'new normal' working from home, homeschooling, and not being able to see family and friends in the same way.

Here's one certainty: things don't always go quite as planned. 

So how do you navigate getting all the things done when there is more on your plate? Do you have a morning routine and how has it changed?

I will give you a little behind the scenes into my morning routine and how it has changed. You'll learn why I think it's important to go with the flow versus being held to a strict minute by minute schedule and how I manage to get things done when things don't always go as planned.
