April 16, 2012 by bmichellepippin 9 Comments Recently, I’ve been reminded by so many of my clients (and prospective clients) how easy it is to overlook, discount or misjudge what is simple. What if you knew exactly what you wanted from your business, had identified the shortest route to get it, and knew what you had to DO to get there in the least amount of time possible? This stood out to me right away “Consultants will wow you with charts and graphs and systems with some corny acronym… crazy hair, glitzy events, and more.
How many times to we go to a well publicized event to learn something about business and what you get are little bites of information from all of the presenters and opportunities to buy the complete program for more money. Each month I sit down and write a statement about what I would like to accomplish that month and how I am going to get there. I really resonate with this because it seems to me that you are teaching folks to stand in their own authority, strip it down, make it plain, and then go do it!-lovely and well done! While reading this a colleague was looking up directions to a restaurant and it was giving a circuitous route rather than direct. God bless you Michelle as you continue to reach out to others with the wisdom God gives you. In a world where there are so many people who are all about hype, all about “making the sale” and all about themselves, it’s extremely refreshing to work with someone who is exactly the opposite… and then some. Before I met Michelle I was struggling with two major things that would make or break my business – believing in my value and how to powerfully speak to the needs of my target market. Since coaching with Michelle, my entire professional career and life has been completely transformed, Michelle’s out-of-the-box-thinking and provocative questions made me really evaluate who I was as a woman, wife, mother, friend and professional.
In 2008, my husband and I DOUBLED our income following Michelle’s super -simple guidance and out of the box suggestions. Michelle lights up the room with her energy, but she does something even more important: she directs your focus to results, performance and taking full, joyful responsibility for their success in business. Thanks to Michelle’s business strategies, my business has double the revenue from last year so far.
After working with with my share of the high-profile online marketing coaches with disappointing results,I wanted and needed something really different.Quick story- I had a very bad month last Fall.
Michelle is an exceptional business coach and mentor for entrepreneurs leading organizations both big and small. When I arrived at the ? way home, I knew I could be there for up to 6 months, and had to have a job.
Well, Looking back I made my small, simple issues into BIG problems because most of the time they were based on lies, manipulation and deceit.
I was telling someone the other day, I am not worried about the idea of using cocaine popping in my head and me go and search right then for it. I can’t explain the feeling that I have that comes with the “simple fact” that I didn’t rush things, and now, it is all coming together!
Now that I think about it, my sobriety can be “simple”  It starts with following the “rules” that are set in motion for all of us, beginning with the oldest rule book that I know about, THE BIBLE.
As I rewrite, if I have these emotional turning points in mind as I work on every scene (and, you know, a thousand other details that I need to work out as well, because this series is so rich in setting and theme and secondary character arcs and community and so forth), I’ll keep my heroine on track and ever evolving and growing and changing from the amazing person she is at Page 1 to the even more amazing woman she becomes at the end of the story.
Thank you Anna for sharing these very important points since I too am in the middle of a re-write.


For the past 10 plus years simplicity seemed unattainable for me.  It seemed most everything I had a hand in had turmoil around it. Whether it was the people I chose to be around, the situations I chose to be in or the places I chose to be in there laid my problems.
What I am saying is that in every addiction, you have a “trigger” which sends a message to the brain to “over analyze” a situation with someone, somewhere or somehow.
I had to pull my head out of my butt, start being honest with who was looking back at me in the mirror, accept MY responsibility for MY part in drama I created. Life I have come to realize is actually very simple, when I am sober, honest, humble, and grateful.  God is the one I seek for answers to my problems.
I look back and see all the unnecessary drama and I have come to realize no relationship in my life is worth anything that will bring harm to my health mentally nor physically.  If you have drama in your life, may I make a suggestion?
I am an addict and for the rest of my life will have to evaluate my people, places and things.
The more though that I see how “simple” and easy my life is being independent, sober and rational, the easier it is to WANT to stay on the right track.  I am telling you from experience, getting to where I am now hasn’t been a yellow brick road, BUT, I wanted this, I wanted change and most of all I want sobriety for the rest of my life! And they’ll want you to believe that success is so complicated that you need them as a guide, revealing all of their “little known secrets” to you in bite-sized chunks. I wanted to take a moment out of my extremely busy schedule to thank you for your help in building my business success.
I have become re- aquatinted with my-self, and my dreams, and unlocked the “present” of living today. I am endebted to you forever and I am so excited about all of these developments in my business I can hardly stand it! Her emphasis on RESULTS rather than EXCUSES turned my thinking, and that of my employees, around dramatically. Her brain is crazy good and she can find money for your business where you didn’t even think to look:)) With just one suggestion she made, I’ve been able to triple my income. Michelle exceeded our expectations and I would recommend her to any organization needing a truly inspirational, results-driven speaker.
Michelle is the kind of person that takes the time to know who you are and what your business is all about.
I see that now, at 38 years old.  I am now working on a project that I am very excited about. Saving and “simple” spending is something I never grasped until being released from prison.
I also teach students to pinpoint the emotional focus of a character at the inciting incident of a story, then at the black moment, and only then at the middle of the book. That could have made her angry at the world and rebellious (as it does our hero, but that’s another blog post). But inviting them into her life exposes her to the kind of chaos (and the chance of risking her heart) she’s refused to allow into her life since she left her own damaged family behind.
I believe I am safe to say that the majority of all programs that encourage sobriety stress that your “people, places and things” have to be evaluated and re-evaluated so that you are not placing yourself in a position to want to use alcohol, drugs, overeat, want to gamble, want to overindulge with risque acts with men, and women.
When we overload our brain with unnecessary thoughts that are irrational and quite frankly insane, we look for an outlet to expend our “hot air” that we have built up trying to figure out a solution to an “insane” problem, thus insanity.


All the unanswered, drama filled questions became clear.  I was able to see the TRUTH because I was finally honest with myself!  The solution to ALL my drama was ME!! I don’t have to deal with complicated issues that will bring stress in my life, especially with people. Instead she tells you exactly what you need to do to take your business to the next level and produces results. Not only is she exceptional at what she does, her practical insights are immediately applicable and her absolute commitment to our success is invaluable. I would be going somewhere I had no business going, and then, when I was confronted about it, I would lie and make up some crap to get myself out of it.
This means that when I start to NOT be grateful, humble and open-minded, I need to recheck myself.
I am so grateful to the LORD for blessing me with so many miracles!  Also, that I have learned “patience” in my FAITH! I started to re-train and re-educate my brain for a rational thought process , start my day with humility and gratitude and realize that I am good with just me, myself and I, and STOP allowing others to define who they want me to be to them and BE who my children need me to be to them! I have shared with you all in the past that I struggle with co-dependency and people pleasing. And I have found in my business, that often I know the simple thing to do is not always the easiest. Not as much as the life that I had, because for the most part it was a lie, BUT, the life I would have when released. I was somewhere I should not have been, which triggered anxiety and confusion, which led to chaos and conflict with others, especially my children. I don’t worry about that; I have so many people “checking” me daily…WHICH I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR! Then, instead of getting in a hurry and trying to “rush” this, I thought, “Wait a minute, keep it simple and use YOUR money to complete this project, then you won’t OWE anyone for it”.
I know the value of a dollar now and don’t throw money away for the first time I can ever remember. I would then have this feeling of arrogance and “I deserved”; eventually feel guilty then I would go and use for a couple of days…What a viscous, sick cycle, huh? Well, guess what?  I have done that, and this upcoming project has been funded by my hard work at my current job. Has she learned enough to accept that this perfect family that has come to her will always be flawed and challenging and scary to her (because she loves them so much and can’t imagine losing them)–and that she can handle all of that, she can handle anything, as long as she has their love in her life? And your courage will always be rewarded” because next week is all about taking steps to simplify my business and now I have faith that I will see the results.
