Hey there, I’m Michelle Wong and I’m here to tell you that I am one of the most authentic business coaches in Vancouver. Let’s start with the statistics. I have been running my own business for the past 15 years. In that time frame I have created 10 businesses. Four of those had a successful exit and 4 are still on-going that i’m running today. The final two are the ones that failed. I would like to quickly point out the fact that failure is okay. Failure is a great teacher and I will teach you how to avoid it’s pitfalls yet utilize it’s lessons.
The businesses I ran were in vastly different industries. The industries I have dived into are: E-Commerce, Retail, Fashion, Entertainment, F&B, Technology, Real Estate and Cannabis. With the vast amount of experience in different fields wearing different hats I’ve come to realize what’s essential for success and what isn’t, no businesses are the same but the lessons I’ve learnt have shown me a secret blueprint on how to navigate a small business in order to scale or to build to sell for profit.
I’ve been a branding and marketing consultant for the past 6 years working with small to medium size businesses. Throughout those partnerships I’ve learnt that my passion is in helping small business owners build their foundation with a strategic mindset.
Alongside my professional experience, I truly believe that everyone should be placing more focus on their personal development. Mindset is one of the keys to success that you can control. With all the personal coaching, seminars, masterminds i’ve attended over the years, I’ve gathered a lot of tools and skills to consistently perform at a high level and have learned the ability to help others do the same.
I’m a constant learner, I’m always looking to improve and grow, as if you’re not growing you’re not even playing in the game of life.
I’m all about building structures and automated systems to take care of menial tasks that you should NOT be spending your precious time on. Small business owners should always be focusing on the development of their business not working in their business. Time is a sacred commodity, stop selling yourself short. It’s about working smart not working hard.
Building a business is overwhelming, I’ve done it so many times and every new venture is still a daunting one. I see a lot of small business owners including my old self thinking they can figure it out along the way but eventually realize it’s impossible to do alone.
They burn out, throw in the towel and go back to a 9 to 5. My goal and mission is to empower everyone to be their own boss, work on their own terms, on their own time, and make more money than they can dream of in an ethical positive manner where you’re bringing value to the world.
