My truth about what makes a fantastic mentor

Thursday, April 27, 2017



I've been mentoring VAs since 2011, and it's been one of the most satisfying and fulfilling roles I've had in the industry bar none.

Last month I ran a kind of mentorship workshop, to see how I could help people in a group environment and then again helping people one-on-one. The first session ran for 3 hours, and everyone was high energy throughout, it was awesome, and I took a few clips for you guys to show you kind of what mentorship with me looks like ;-) They're pretty raw, and I tried to select the most 'generic' ones so I hope you find them helpful, but please know, I didn't intend to do this, it was supposed to be private so excuse the poor quality sound and visual, but I hope the essence and the 'realness' of what I want to share with you shines through.

You May As Well Struggle In Happiness

Wednesday, October 12, 2016



When you have a dream to move to another country (or anywhere else really) because you're so unhappy where you're at, then the first step of the plan is usually to build a business in order to achieve that dream - I have to say, I don't fully agree with the order of the priorities.

The fact is, going after a dream is rarely easy, if it was you'd be there by now, we would all just think up what we wanted and make it happen.

My Adventures In Delhi, India

Monday, June 13, 2016


Guess what, I'm back from India, and even though this post has been delayed while I get back in my groove, plus I'm not sure if you've ever put a 'holidays/vacation' blog post together with images and video, but it takes a fair while trying to condense it - I could have made this into a novel, so I'm splitting my travels up into different posts, in this one we're doing Delhi and The Taj! My oh my did I have an awesome time and it's still very fresh in my mind :-)

The Fear Pep Talk (from the heart)

Wednesday, April 27, 2016


I've literally had multiple emails over the last month from many of you gorgeous people who have been wanting to start a VA business, to do numerous things like travel, change their lives, be home with their kids, dump their boss etc... and feel just so afraid about it all. I even wrote a blog post addressing this picking out a specific example.

Concerned Or Feeling Inadequate?

Wednesday, March 30, 2016

Hello you! I have an exciting announcement :-) If you're subscribed to my mailing list, first of all, thank you because You Rock, and second of all, you should now be getting an email in 'real-time' in future from my mates over at Feedio, who are kindly sending their RSS fairies to you with my posts. If you're like "oh no Michelle, I don't want these super awesome posts" ;-) - that's okay, no hard feelings you can simply hit unsubscribe, but if you like what you read, stick around, and the Feedio fairies will keep delivering.

Thank you! Michelle x  



One of the great things about what I do now, is that I've got over a decade of being in business for myself as a VA under my belt, and I've pretty much been through what a lot of other VAs go through when they're first starting out and growing their business.

What's Stopping You From Being Successful?

Thursday, February 04, 2016



I get a lot of people contacting me asking me what they need to build a successful business, of course there's a comprehensive answer to this, there are several factors involved in building a great business that serves the purpose of adding value to the lives of others, while providing an abundance of wealth and enjoyment to the person who's behind it. But there are certain factors that have more influence on your success, than others.

Sunday, November 15, 2015



With the events this week in France where more than 120 people were killed in a horrific terrorist attack in the capital, and there were many more injured, I don't think we can help but think to ourselves, what if...

Niche Myth: Expand Your Foundation, Find Balance, Increase Earnings

Thursday, August 06, 2015



One of the key things I've learnt over the years to having a consistent growing income is to increase the earning potential of my VA business, either through passive income, multiple income streams, scalability or simply being able to improve my skill set and expand what I'm able to offer. By having that kind of open flexibility with my services, clients will almost always come to me first and ask if I'm able to help them with a project or task, before they begin looking elsewhere. I can then either confirm I'm able, or pass the client onto a more suitable service provider.

The Doctor or The Dinner Lady - Who's More Successful?

Thursday, June 25, 2015



How we define success is very much shaped by society. I remember when I was young, all I could focus on was career, independence - Income... I thought success was directly related to my bank balance, my home and its contents and my car. On a mentorship call I was holding with a group of people on my Rockstar programme I recently used the analogy of the Doctor and the Dinner Lady, I wanted to share this with you.

If You Want More Business, Try Doing What I Do

Wednesday, May 27, 2015



I made a vow to myself when I launched my new website design in April, that I would always bring you truth from my experiences on this blog, no matter how weird or bizarre or hard to swallow it may be, and this is one of those times where I would of thought, "Nah, nobody want's to hear that" - but actually I think you need to.
