Best Hypnosis & Coaching
Hi, my name is Michele Burghardt. I am an abundance mindset coach and a certified consulting hypnotherapist with a B.A. in Business
Management and humbled to be your tour guide for this amazing process. When people ask me what drew me to coaching, I have to smile
because it’s been a long and winding road.
I'm 24 years old, working at a bank for $5.00 an hour and one of the bank's customers and I start a conversation about being an entrepreneur.
He refers his wife to me. We chat, become partners - and then at the last minute she backs out. Ick! Well, when you have more guts than brains,
what do you do? You go for it.
I loved being my own boss, but then the nightmares started. I was so over my head, I knew it was time for a change. Guess what? I was able to SELL my business. Who knew . . .
The day I signed the papers I got pregnant with twins. Quite the celebration don't you think? Needing a second income after they were born, and not knowing what to do, my mom suggested Mary Kay Cosmetics. Well I didn't wear much makeup but it was a way to make money so I thought OK, I'll give it a whirl.
Little did I know that I would be so caught up in all the razzle dazzle that I would work any time, any where - and all the while never really doing it right. This was my first experience with manifesting even though I didn't know it at the time. I thought the mantra, "What you think about - you bring about" was just cheer leading. If I only knew then what I know now.
I bombed at Mary Kay, never able to really get out of my own way. I tried to walk their walk and talk their talk, but it just wasn't working. I bounced around for a while and completed my degree. At work I met an interesting woman who was allergic to anesthesia who used hypnotherapy for pain control during a root canal.
WHAT the WHAT!!!! How was this even possible? This totally sparked my interest in how the brain works and opened my eyes to the endless possibilities. So I went to training, got certified, and opened my first hypnosis center. I just knew in my heart I was meant to be successful. But I made mistakes, grew too fast, and was forced to close my business after 9/11.
Now what do I do? Licking my wounds, I switched gears and pursued a career in marketing for the next 15-odd years. During this time I started another company or two, founded not-for-profit organizations, worked as the sales and marketing director for a start-up, and worked for a professional services firm. The joke at the family reunion every year was; well Michele what type of company have you started now? During that period I was working hard, but still wasn't making much money. At the time it didn't bother me (too much) because I convinced myself that I was only the second income in our household.
Then my life fell apart. In a span of two years, my daughter-in-law committed suicide; leaving my son, who was in the military, with a 2 1/2 year old little boy, my dad passed away, my daughter died of a heroine overdose, my husband sunk into an alcohol stupor, and to top it all off - during the mist of all the chaos I fell and severely broke my ankle.
After several broken bones and two back-to-back stints in rehab, my husband continued drinking and thought it was a good idea to go to work drunk and got fired.
He had been an alcoholic for years, but Renee's death pushed him over the edge and he just wasn't coming back. After 36 years, I had to make a choice. I could give up my life for his, or I could take my power back and live the life I always thought I would. I decided that divorce was the best option.
So image . . . a 59 year old woman, who for the first time in her life needed to be able to support herself. I took some time off to reflect on my past and figure out why I was never able to really to break through to success and why I thought I should settle for such a miserable life. That's when I had my AH-HA moment.
My dad worked two jobs. He worked for the telephone company and was a real estate broker. For the span of my entire childhood, I thought we were so poor that my daddy could never come to any balls games, take me to father-daughter dances, etc. because he was busy trying to keep the family afloat. We never went on vacations, had a nice house, or drove nice cars regardless of how much he was gone or how hard he worked. First Imprint.
Second Imprint: "Michele, why do you have to be in business? Can't you just be happy as a stay at home mom?" says my mom. BOOM.
I had been raised in a loving household but one in which hard work never equated to money or success, AND there was absolutely no expectation of me doing anything. I wasn't expected to want more, have a great job, or even earn a college degree. These things were totally out of the norm for my family. And to top it all off, my mom missed my dad so much because he was always working which caused them to fight every single night. They were married 62 years when he passed. BOOM BOOM BOOM.
It shook my world when I realized I had been living the lives of both of my parents simultaneously. This is life as I knew it and the only results I would ever have unless I truly made some adjustments in my belief system. It wasn't the many companies I started that lacked success- it was ME. I was the reason I was spinning my wheels. I was the reason I put up with a dysfunctional marriage. It was a hard pill to swallow. But I did the work, reset my mindset and really, for the first time, began living the life I dreamed of.
I started practicing hypnotherapy again right before Renee passed away. When I noticed I was working with professionals who were struggling with the same issues I had been, I knew I could really help them by integrating hypnotherapy with the natural coaching ability I had been cultivating over the years while adding in the additional mindset work I implemented for myself. This felt at home. I was excited to be helping people harness their personal power, let go of old belief systems, and live - really live the life they dreamed of.
Every day I work with people, just like you, who understand abundance is more than just about making money. It's about having a beautiful life. I help you break through blocks which result in amazing transformations. Yes you may make more money. But you'll also feel worthy of success, have increased confidence, clarity, and fulfillment. You'll let go of limiting beliefs in all areas of your life. With practical training and tools, along with hypnotherapy, you're able to reset your mindset so you can change your behavior which in turn - changes your results.
I know now I am doing the work I was designed to do. I passionately believe that the brain runs the body, and know if you want to attract abundance, you have to think abundantly and change the programming in the brain first. I absolutely love what I do, and I'm really good at it.
I have worked with hundreds private clients, written countless articles, and educated groups on the concept of mindset reset. I’m living my dream life of making a positive impact on the lives of individuals at the core level and have created the Abundance Mindset Mastery Program , a unique 8-week intensive program for anyone who wants more magic in their life. I simply help you shift your mindset from the inside out so you can make permanent positive changes.
WHO ARE YOUR CLIENTS?
I work with individuals just like you who are ready to up-level their abundance but can't seem to get out of their own way. They know they can do better, but for some weird reason they just can’t make it happen. Here are just some of the people I work with:
WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT FROM OTHER COACHES?
Although I occasionally touch upon time management and other business coachy things, you have me as a mindset expert and consultant. I work on the inner and outer principals of abundance and look at your results from an organic perspective. And as you know I believe wholeheartedly that the brain runs the body so if you want to do something differently, you have to think differently first.
I believe abundance can be embraced in all areas, including your business or career, family life, romantic relationships, and community, etc. Because I’m not always delicate, you’ll always get a straight-to-the-point, quick and honest response from me. You can be sure I will always tell you the truth. The truth about what’s standing in your way, and how to get rid of it FAST so you can start getting results in record time. (And I’m really fun to work with, which always helps).
WHAT PERSONALITY TYPES DO YOU WORK BEST WITH, AND WHAT'S EXPECTED OF ME?
The Abundance Mindset Mastery Program was created for people who are absolutely excited and super serious about reaching aggressive goals, breaking through resistance, making more money, and living an abundant life. This program is perfect for you if you're tired of pressing your nose against the glass looking inside & wishing it was you. Now, it can be. That’s what I call magic!
Because my personal expectations are so high, I’ve been known to work best with people who are serious about making a change. You’ll want to be open to different modalities of coaching because this is like nothing you’ve ever experienced. There are also very practical tools included so you’ll be expected to take serious and consistent action. No excuses anymore, just a very different way of thinking with full support while you achieve this incredibly exciting goal; a higher level of success!
WHAT TYPE OF PROFESSIONAL SHOULD NOT JOIN YOUR PROGRAM?
Because I spend one-on-one time with each client, I cherry-pick who I work with, choosing to (gently) turn away people who are not suited for my program or have needs not addressed in this process. It wouldn’t be fair to them. The Abundance Mindset Mastery Program is NOT for those who are financially desperate, at least not right away. It has been my experience that people in financial crisis do not trust the process because they are worrying about where they are going to get next month’s rent or mortgage payment. If you fall within this category it’s absolutely OK. We’ve all been there at some point. Just do yourself this favor:
Doing this will help you get primed for our work together. When you’re ready, call me and we’ll get you started. I’m in no rush, and will be here when you need me.
Other types of personalities I don’t work with are skeptics, whiners, and individuals who challenge every aspect of the program. I understand if you don’t believe in the process and gently and respectfully ask that you not call and hope you understand why. We’ll probably just not work well together and I wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money. Is that fair?
WHAT EXACTLY IS THE ABUNDANCE MINDSET MASTERY PROGRAM AND WHAT DOES IT INCLUDE?
The Abundance Mindset Mastery Program is a unique coaching program that helps you embrace abundance in all areas of your life from the inside out. It's a confidential, intensive 8-week program which begins with a diagnostic tool that helps you understand where you are right now, what beliefs are holding you back, and how your behavior patterns are negatively affecting you. This assessment will help you understand what is truly limiting your success so you can make the positive changes necessary to attract abundance. During week one you will take the self-assessment and review the results one-on-one with me.
Week Two: Become a Conscious Creator
During week two you will learn how to consciously create the life that you deserve. You'll learn how to mentally attract success while generating the activity to make it happen. We start our training with this concept to enable you to practice throughout the remainder of the program.
Weeks Three-Eight: Mindset Reset
Each week your program addresses one of the six most common success stoppers facing professionals from all walks of life. Sessions last 60-90 minutes and include practical tools, processes, and possible homework. After you've learned some practical techniques to overcome your challenges, you'll enjoy a hypnotherapy session which will update your behaviors, habits, and beliefs on the subconscious level. Remember, the brain runs the body, and the training on this level is what makes our program so successful. Theses are the topics of exploration:
Bonus Session : Self-Hypnosis
As an extra bonus, I've included a ninth session so you can learn how to use hypnotherapy on your own. Learning self-hypnosis will enable you to use this tool anytime you need it and apply it to any area of your life.
WHAT BENEFITS WILL I RECEIVE
Hypnotherapy alone provides you with enormous benefits you would never expect. But couple that with in-depth mind blowing coaching, and you'll become unstoppable. Here are some of the benefits my clients experience:
CAN I CONTACT SOME OF YOUR FORMER CLIENTS?
Please do! Visit our testimonials page, it gets updated all the time. For confidentiality purposes, you may only see the client's first name and last initial.
HOW QUICKLY CAN I EXPECT RESULTS?
The brain works incredibly fast so you may experience some changes immediately. If you don’t – no worries. Hypnosis is a skill that you get better at the more you do it.
HOW CAN I GUARANTEE MYSELF THAT I'LL SEE IMPROVEMENT?
The first step is to SHOW UP! Be totally committed to your success. Do your homework. And understand this is a process, a proven one that works if you take action with an open mind.
WILL I RECOVER MY INVESTMENT?
Yes, a resounding Yes! I haven't had a client yet who hasn’t made positive changes that impacted their life . Understand that I'm just your tour guide. Your brain does all the work, so just be sure to be ‘present’ when you’re here and you’ll see more positive changes in your life than you expected.
From everything I've read and heard, I know You are the one I want to learn from. How do I get started?
