  • Michelle Balaun recently did some marketing work for us for an event that we wanted to promote. I started with an idea, and Michelle was very good at listening to what I wanted and translating that into actual advertisements, facebook events, and email to send out to our target audience. She came through with the ads and email when she said she would. Overall, we are very happy with her work and level of efficiency. We would definitely come here first for any future work!

  • I needed a professional website quick, and by quick I mean overnight. I gave Jennifer and Michelle the details of what I wanted and within the specified 24hr rush time, they presented me with 2 unique options. Quick, professional and right on the mark for my concept, I found working with them as a team to be an extremely easy process. I highly recommend their expertise for anyone looking for the perfect expression of your concept.

  • Confidence is the first word that came to mind when I met Michelle. I am not surprised that she is now in the business of helping others increase theirs. Michelle has definitely helped me increase mine. More than that, she helped me uncover areas of improvement that I didn't even know existed - having gone down a path of routine and comfort for far too long. Michelle didn't just provide me with helpful information and tools, she provided me with solid advice - by LISTENING. She is the epitome of an excellent coach.

  • Jessica Williams, Founder of TechBizGurl, Chicago, Illinois I went to Michelle because I was freaking out about an upcoming speech.  I had to prepare a short biography within 30 minutes and then deliver the speech a few days later. Michelle was totally calm and gave me some quick pointers. She also sent me a prep guide to prepare for my speech including a short bio, talking points and a nice structure to follow for my 10 minute talk. After receiving Michelle's help, I felt calm, confident and ready to go with a plan for my speech. If public speaking gives you the blues and you need a cheerleader in your corner that can help you shine, I definitely recommend Michelle!

  • I needed a voice-over to introduce and explain the functions of my company's website. Unlike any resource ever seen in its industry, it must be explained to users. Having heard Michelle at many Toastmaster events and meetings, I knew she would be perfect for the job and I was not disappointed. Her work turned out even better than I'd expected, and the voice-over she provided has been a tremendous asset in trade show presentations. Professional in every way.

  • Birgit Teichmann, Landscape Architect, Berlin, Germany Michelle was a very reliable partner in helping me prepare presentations and workshops for conferences in San Francisco and Toronto. She was able to bridge the cultural gap with wording that was right on target. She gave the motivation that I needed to accomplish this challenging task. Her instinctive flair for timing and creative handling of the theme to capture the audience really impressed me. In just a short time Michelle translated my presentation accurately and in the correct vernacular of Landscape Architecture. Thanks in large part to Michelle, my keynote presentation was a success.

  • Peter M.T. Agbeyegbe, Toastmaster, Florida, USA Yesterday at Toastmasters, apparently, I did well. I used the method you told me about -- knowing my stories, instead of memorizing a speech -- and it went over well. Although I did not win as the best speaker, yesterday, I received so much positive feedback; it's amazing. And, I was very nervous. There were four speakers total, and after seeing the other three wonderful speeches, I did not want to disappoint. Thanks for your advice. It definitely helped my confidence, and I'll use your method again.

  • Paula Zitrin, Boca Raton, Florida I first met Michelle in a Toastmaster’s Class. Her speeches are wonderfully captivating, exuberant, and entertaining. In addition to her relaxed, professional style, Michelle always exudes so much confidence…the very thing I lack most. So when I discovered she is a confidence coach, I jumped on board. Who better to take confidence lessons from than an expert herself? Michelle is passionate about this subject. She is incredibly organized, creative, and diligently follows through with homework assignments and reminders to be confident via pinterest boards. In addition, her very supportive and upbeat attitude guarantees that her students emerge as confident people. She settles for nothing less! I feel so fortunate to be learning so much from her…and having so much fun!

Having recently decided to divorce myself from an unfulfilling and stressful professional situation, I was in dire need of an infusion of confidence to enable me to launch myself on a new career trajectory.

Through a series of phone calls and e-mails, Michelle gave me the encouragement I needed, and today I am excited that I can achieve the bright and rewarding future I have always desired.

  • Paula Bloom PhD, Atlanta I've done a fair amount of professional speaking and am a regular cable news contributor. So, when I was invited to do a TEDx talk, I figured "I got this." Well, it wasn't until working with Michelle that I realized how much help I needed. She taught me how to distill, edit, organize and all of this while COMPLETELY encouraging my own voice and style. Her feedback was direct with a big dose of humor. She has the ability to easily move from big picture to the most nuanced details--a powerful skill. She used her years of experience to guide, without a trace of arrogance. I am so grateful to Michelle who not only helped me with this particular talk, but gave me tools for all future presentations.

  • Pascal Depuhl, Cinematographer, Miami     ...catching light in motion! “ I tell stories for a living. They're always carefully crafted and meticulously planned down to the split second in my films and photographs. Standing in front of a live crowd at a recent TEDx talk is similar, but also very different. Michelle was great in helping me get what I was trying to say into the 5 minute time slot and was a great support in facilitating all that goes into making a successful speech - from the concept, to how it was said, to the visual presentation, to guiding me through all the behind the scenes stuff. Thanks Michelle, really appreciate your help and guidance. Pascal Depuhl tells passionate stories using photographs and videos, that bring his clients visions to life.
