Mindset Ass Kicker
I’m Michelle Bianco, and I know a thing or two about crushing self-doubt. As an accomplished mindset expert with a born-and-raised New York attitude, I’ve built my successful career by using my “seriously sassy attitude” to inspire my clients enrolled in my carefully crafted and strategically designed mindset programs and one-on-one coaching sessions.
I’m not mainstream, and neither is my coaching. In a world that promotes uniformity, I honor my intuition and trust in my originality. And I love my work because I believe everyone possesses the same ability to rise above mediocrity.
People think they can ignore the little voices we hear in our heads that beat us up all the time. We have learned to put up with those little demon voices. Some of us listen to those whispers way too often and it becomes part of our inner-core thinking. We convince ourselves of the lies that we don’t even know are on repeat in our heads.
Our work there all starts with quieting insecurities by focusing on what makes you powerful. My work is founded on getting my clients to identify, discover and embrace what makes them different.
I help my clients harness their power and use it to their advantage. I believe all people possess the ability to create positive change in their lives and I am passionate about inspiring my clients to discover their voice and crush that self-doubt.
My coaching uniquely focuses on how professionals can advance their careers and goals by revolutionizing the way they see themselves. I create lasting change for entrepreneurs, creatives, business people, risk-takers and ambivalent dreamers who crave greater authority over their lives but who lack self-assurance. I help those willing to take a leap of faith and overcome fears to accomplish personal and professional breakthroughs.
If it sounds easy, it’s only because I’ve spent many years on my own road to self-empowerment. I know how difficult reshaping your attitude can be, so I take my experiences in life and apply the lessons I’ve learned to coach and motivate my clients. I draw inspiration from triumphs and letdowns, the setbacks and achievements and I personally connect with my clients because I know what it feels like to pick up the pieces after an epic struggle with life’s letdowns.
My path to coaching started with disappointment. With life seemingly in order and new beginnings on the horizon, I was everything but prepared for an infertility battle. What was supposed to be an exciting time in my life turned into a 10-year uphill climb to have children. Countless procedures, tests, injections and acupuncture left me feeling hopeless and completely alone. My hopes for the perfect family started vanishing.
Constantly adhering to a demanding fertility schedule and feeling like a failure with the lack of progress, My body took the physical hit of such high stress. I started suffering from daily migraines that culminated in a basilar migraine that left me temporarily blinded with an ambulance and trip to the hospital to top it off. Years of reproductive disappointment, feeling like I wasn’t enough and that I had no control over my own life and vision for how I was supposed to live it finally plummeted me to my rock bottom.
My experience in the back of the ambulance is what inspired my success story. I decided that I would conquer the obstacles I faced and find it within myself to reignite the fire that burned deep inside of me. I left a successful 20 year corporate career as an Employee Relations Director for a major company and dove headfirst into my “renaissance period.”
I refused to give up because that is my natural personality. I’m a pit bull at heart because I totally refuse to be told no.
Feeling ready to take on the world, I then used her ferocious appetite for research and learning that led to a breakthrough. I was ready to start the next phase of my life — a more resilient phase. I used every self-development resource I could find to reshape my belief in my own destiny and began thinking about how I could use my story as an example for other women — and then an extended network of people — looking to rewrite a disappointing story.
These were my sister warriors who needed support and I was absolutely determined to be the one who could be there for them in their time of need and desperation. Learning how to feel more confident and comfortable in your skin requires a coach who has walked in those same shoes and beat the odds every day.
Having found a way into a more meaningful and personal career and wielding a positive attitude, I then enrolled in a variety of programs and schools that helped me decide on a coaching niche. I was fascinated with the 'disconnect' between, the life a client envisions for his or herself, and where that person’s at in the process of realizing his or her dreams. I wanted to help my clients discover what makes them “tick” and how they could overcome negative feelings to become a more confident person.
As a Master Coach, I’ve amassed thousands of hours of one-on-one personal coaching sessions. The sheer repetition of these personal coaching interactions is what distinguishes me from most coaches. When I started my own private practice specializing in mindset change and found a passion for methods of unlocking and unleashing the forces inside a person. I use this strategy and experience with my clients to help them dismantle limiting beliefs about themselves to create the quality of life they desire.
In these sessions, I help my clients connect with their ultimate purpose and ignite their passion to achieve the ultimate vision of life, career, finances, health and relationships. Coaching is an ever-changing and continuous journey to help my clients fill the gap between who they currently are and who they want to become.
I find that gap is usually a result of self-doubt, a sense of inadequacy or a surrendering to pessimism. Therefore, I help my clients refresh how they think about their life, always using empowerment and confidence building as tools to achieve greatness.
Being a powerful woman means that you are the keeper of your own destiny. And I believe every woman, man, entrepreneur, go-getter or skeptic holds the key and the internal power to unlock the door to a life that person wants, which is why I promote a partnership approach to her coaching. While I’m part of the process, the successful end game is a result of my client taking control.
As I’ve collected several certifications and years of experience, my coaching style has evolved into a dynamic practice that meets the various needs of my clients. My résumé includes certifications as a Life Coach, Master Results Coach, Relationship Coach, Strategic Intervention Specialist and “mindset ass kicker.”
My diverse perspective is therefore effective in getting clients to declare themselves as their own boss, because I use that high-standards, no-excuses approach. Clients can expect to walk away with greater success in their personal and professional lives, healthier relationships, the skills to handle stressful situations and knowledge on prioritizing life projects and timelines.
Everybody has a thing, and this is my thing.
Coaching, changing lives, and working with my clients to over-achieve their goals is what I do.
I want those I work with to share in the power I’ve experienced. I want my clients to reclaim their self-identity, rely on their intuition and rebuild their self-confidence.
I’ve discovered my own voice and I’ve built a career working with others to experience that same authority. I’ve changed lives by encouraging clients to swap a negative self-image for a strong body, mind and spirit.
The magic happens when you face your fears, get off the sidelines, and become the main character in your own life story. I know it’s not easy, but I promise it’s worth it.
Change your mindset, change your life. I now live my life by my own personal design, with explosive energy and laser-sharp focus.
I know you can do the same.
