Working with Michael as my coach, I have made tremendous progress in both my business and personal life. With the fifteen clients I had at that time, I have increased my recurring revenue 96%, translating to $82,000 on the books already at just halfway through the year. I have increased services to ten out of the fifteen clients and increased their individual monthly fees from 50% to 300%.
Before working with Michael, I had a “hang up” with money and how much I was charging. Through his coaching and the use of the tools available to me, I have mostly overcome that hang up and my clients now pay me up to $950 per month.
Additionally, it is fun and a pleasure working with Michael, a person of great integrity. I am 64 years old and because of the fun and success I am currently experiencing, I am rethinking my retirement plans.
Consultant and Coach
Michael helped me create a simple, yet impactful plan that lays out Exactly what I need to do to achieve the results I want. No more guesswork...I just wake up and DO what the plan says.
Since doing this in December, my income has grown by over 50% average. Michael is the best investment I have ever made in my business!
Creating a Culture of Renewal
"In just a few short months, I increased my client base by 40% as a result of working with Michael. In addition, my speaking engagements increased by almost as much and I'm pleased to say I'm booked into next year. Michael's honest, straightforward and focused approach to coaching was just what I needed to get some much-needed tread under my wheels. And as if that weren't enough, he's just a great guy and fun to talk to. Thank you, Michael!"
LCSW, Wellness Coach
Since working with Michael as my coach, my business has grown exponentially. I had 6 clients a year ago and now my 6-figure practice is full with over 20 clients! I am also getting paid as a speaker and selling products. If you are done settling and ready to create the business you deserve, hire Michael as your coach. What are you waiting for?

Michael's 'heart-felt, business' philosophy totally spiced up my life. His warm common sense approach combined with business fortitude empowered me to TOTALLY grow my business. What I used to earn in ONE YEAR I earned in the last TWO MONTHS. I bet you would want that too! With Michael’s help I can present a workshop and half of audience will WANT a comp coaching session and half will hire me. If you want to totally grow your business and your life give Michael a call…he will help you fall in love with your life.
Savor Your Life Today!!
"Meeting Michael was a milestone in my adult life. The day he asked me "what are you afraid of?" was the first step toward radically changing what I believed about myself. In 2 years since God brought him into my life, I have passed the 3,000 client-count and now have 2 businesses instead of one and see visions of a 3rd! The world would be transformed is everyone had a Coach like Michael in their corner!
Since I began following Michael’s process and advise my average number of clients has doubled from 12 to 24 per month and as a consequence, my average monthly income has doubled. I hired Michael to help me reach my average income goal of 100k+ per year and I know this will happen soon because of the success I have experienced since I began working with Michael.
Professional Certified Coach
As a small business owner, I was hesitant to spend money on an outside coach. After a year of working with Michael, however, I can definitely say that it was an excellent investment. Michael has been a great “sounding board” for me when making decisions and has stretched me towards building a world-class organization. Since working with Michael, I have hired two people for my organization and doubled my annual consulting revenues.
Thanks, Michael for being a trusted and valuable member of my business team!

Truly Made a Difference
"Michael, I mean it when I say that your class was the best class I have taken to date. God's honest truth. I woke up this a.m. and FINALLY wrote my "mission statement." (and am more excited than I can ever tell you! You are not full of fluff, but rather, the "bottom line" kind of talk. You truly have made a difference in my life. Bless you!"

“Michael, What can I say? I know that Gerrie's already thanked you on behalf of PACA but I want to add my own personal thanks. You were so well received; the feedback forms gave you fives and fours (mostly fives) on a 1-5 scale.
A few of the comments:"...was inspiring and thought provoking." "One of the best speakers/topics/programs we've had in the past year." "Very motivating." It was clear that your presentation came from the heart and was delivered with sincerity, honesty and love.
So, as VP-Education for PACA, I also thank you."

As President of the San Antonio Professional Coaches Association, I had heard from our membership that they wanted to learn more about growing their businesses. We were very fortunate to arrange for Michael Charest to present a workshop on the subject. Michael speaks in an everyday experience-based language about what it takes to make this happen. He is great presenter who kept us all on the edge of our seats taking notes on his every word. I encourage anyone who has the chance to hear Michael speak to do so. He’ll give you some great ideas on how to drive your coaching business to the next level. I only have one warning if you do, “Hold on tight and get ready to rock and roll because you WILL leave ready to take action and make things happen!”

Being someone who has personally taken Michael's teleclass, "Coach and Grow Rich", I was thrilled that he would come and present for our SF Coaches meeting. Michael's generosity of spirit makes anything one takes with him a gift. He simply gives as much information as he can, is very approachable, his messages are clear, practical and inspiring. I would highly recommend him as a speaker. When Michael spoke we had one of our largest meeting turnouts, the energy was high and everyone was very energized at the end. I consistently use tools I have learned from "Coach and Grow Rich" and am proud to say I have a fun and successful coaching business.
