Working with Michelle is like being invited into a room that you never knew existed, let alone one you could actually enter. My company is on the rise and is getting stronger every day. Someday when I’m asked how we did it, two words I’ll be sure to include in my press release: Michelle Drake.”

“She’s [Michelle Drake] a brilliant strategist and great communicator with a genius for developing highly profitable businesses. She is one of the most amazing people at what she does and when I hired her, I ended up with incredible results - she really understands business, the wants/needs of the audience, and how to reach the audience. She also happens to be an artist - a painter - and gets the creative side of things - an unusual combination. I recommend Michelle to my clients - with great satisfaction.”
