Private Coaching

Private Coaching- V.I.P. Day, Private Calls, Retreats and In-Person Community (Includes Email & Text Support, Strategize Your Success & Coaching Club 4.0)

Are you ready to deep dive into your business? Would you like help putting together a plan that will help you reach your goals? Are you looking for dedicated time each month to get help carrying out your plan and an in-person community to mastermind with throughout the year? Then Z&B Consulting, Inc.'s Maximize Your Momentum Private Coaching Program is PERFECT for you! During our time together, we'll create a plan and then work closely as you carry out the plan. I'll be at your side during your private coaching calls each month as you navigate the twists and turns that come along the way. Three times a year you'll meet in-person with other Z&B clients to mastermind and plan the quarter ahead. You'll also receive resources available in the Online Academy for extra guidance and support, along with a Private Facebook group filled with like-minded professionals on similar journeys to bounce ideas off of and celebrate your win's with. Additionally, you get email and text support, as well as access to Group Coaching Calls where you can celebrate your success with others and learn from their questions and journey. (NOTE: If you are a small business with more than one employee, a non profit, a church or a volunteer sports/parent organization, check out the Ongoing Consulting program. It's very similar to the Private Coaching program but adapted for staff/volunteer teams.)


Glad you asked! V.I.P. Days are really awesome because they give you super focused private time with Strategy Rockstar Michelle Smith. You spend 4 hours digging deep and creating a plan for your business. Each clients plan is different and customized to the unique needs of their business at the time of the session. Prior to the big day, homework is done to ensure that you and Michelle are laser-focused during your session. Afterwards, Michelle spends time finalizing your plan so it's ready for you to begin executing. Once your plan is complete, Michelle helps keep you on task and accountable to your plan. You will schedule private calls to ask questions and adapt the plan. You can also email & text Michelle questions, as well as post questions for fellow professionals in the Private Facebook Group.

In the Online Academy, Strategy Rockstar Michelle Smith walks you through many of the things that are sure to come up (or already have) in your business. You'll find short videos and worksheets that can be done in small chunks of time in the comfort of your home. Michelle breaks concepts down so they are easy to understand and to tackle. The online academy also comes with access to a Private Facebook Group and the Strategize Your Success Ecourse- A step-by-step program designed to quickly get your business on the right path to success!

I’m Michelle Smith of Z & B Consulting, Inc. For 20 years I supported various small businesses, non-profit organizations, day cares and private schools with their strategies and processes to obtain and retain more customers. But working for someone else while also trying to balance being a wife and mother isn’t easy, so I became an entrepreneur and founded Z & B Consulting in 2014. Family is very important to me -- so much so that I named my company after my sons Zach and Ben. By founding my own business, I was able to achieve a work/life balance through working smarter, not just harder. Implementing the relationship building strategies I’d mastered during my career enabled me to obtain the money AND time to enjoy the things I love with the people I love. It is my personal mission to help my clients do the same. I help small businesses, entrepreneurs and non-profit organizations of all kinds overcome obstacles by teaching them to utilize the right tools, resources and methods to grow their business. I know that creating and implementing the right strategies might seem overwhelming and often scares people from focusing on it. That’s why I make business strategy fun and easy, and take my clients back to a time when learning was exciting. I earned my bachelors from Purdue University and I am a business coach, consultant, trainer and speaker. My husband Scott and I reside in the Chicago suburbs with our two boys. If you would like to learn more about how I can help you achieve your business goals (without sacrificing your personal goals!) through strategy and relationship building, I would love to hear from you.
