Do you have a big idea, but you're not sure if it’s possible or how to make it happen?
Is the thought of figuring out the technology scary and holding you back?
I'm Michelle, and I'm an Online Business Illuminator and Implementor.
I take big ideas and make them real by translating visions into technology and leading a team of experts to bring them to life. I guide and support authors, teachers, coaches and entrepreneurs to share their knowledge, products and services with the world through strategically focused, custom built and fully supported websites, tools and business systems.
How We Can Work Together
Ecommerce, Membership and eCourse platforms to share your gifts with the world. I'll translate your vision into a tech brief and then guide a team of experts to bring it to life.
I'll listen to your ideas and together we will find the path to make it real. I'll bring all my experience and knowledge so you can confidently take the next step towards your vision.
Thank you for everything you made possible this year. You are a joy to work with and have taken so many of my crazy dreams and made them into reality. I can’t believe it was only this time a year ago I was wondering if I could afford to put you on. Now I can’t imagine life without you. It was my best decision all year.

Michelle has a unique, complimentary skill set that is rare to find in one developer. Most large companies have 7 or 8 people doing the work that Michelle does, and the beauty of having all those skills in one person is that it all works together seamlessly. Believe me. Trying to get all the things that go into making a site function flawlessly, to operate together in harmony, is no mean feat and when you have ONE person who knows how to put all of that together and how to make them all sing one tune, you're onto a winner. Michelle is that multi-talented technician and developer, who will work tirelessly to bring every part of the dream you have to life.
I can not stress enough the importance of open and effective communication when it comes to getting what you want. After a horrible experience of realising that the first person I hired to design my website wasn’t quite fitting into (and executing) my vision, and then crying buckets of tears into my pillow, Michelle enters my life. Admittedly she was there to help me communicate better with the original designer, but after that failed, she took over and has created the masterpiece you see before you (+ she’s currently working on the Build a Soulful Business membership portal… how exciting!). To be openly honest, it was worth the thousands I paid the first designer to have it fail just to get Michelle on my team, even if that wasn’t the primary intention. So take note, everything happens for a reason.
If you can, hire Michelle. Michelle is a web genius and I am so thankful for her. If every online business owner gets to experience the same relationship and quality of work that I have experienced with her then the would would spin a whole lot more smoothly and lovingly.
Thank you so much for making this happen!! It’s been an absolute pleasure to work on this with you. Your prudence in thinking through all the details, creativity in coming up with solutions for our unique situations, and judgement in deciphering what was possible were truly appreciated!
I was feeling totally overwhelmed by the techie decisions required to upscale my business, and Michelle came to my rescue. She was clear in her explanations, and helped me to break through my total panic and come to informed decisions in a matter of minutes, about choices which had been waking me up in the middle of the night.
She is, in the kindest possible way, a techno-geek, who loves all things techie, eats them for breakfast no doubt, but speaks human. With a big heart. She is quick to understand your project needs, techie abilities, and financial situation and recommends based on all these. There is no selling, just good, honest advice as she generously shares her almost encyclopedic knowledge and vast personal experience gleaned from being a business person, VA and consultant.
She’s fun to talk to, and from the other side of the world, thanks to the wonders of Skype left me feeling confident in my plan of action. I slept well for the first time in weeks after our conversation.
