Hi, my name is Michele Burghardt. I am a business coach who focuses on mindset. I am an entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience. 
I am certified in hypnotherapy and neurolinguistic programming, have a BA in Business Management, and am a published author.  It is my
pleasure to be your tour guide for this amazing process.  When people ask me what drew me to business coaching, I smile ​because it’s been
a long and winding road.

My background is definitely diverse. I started my first company when I was 24 and fell in love with being an entrepreneur. Throughout my 20
years of entrepreneurial experience I started and sold companies, one of which was the largest hypnotherapy practice is my region.  I was
privileged to be the founder of two not-for-profit organizations, provided marketing consulting services for client companies, worked with
start-ups ​as well as mature organizations and a professional services firm. I have a clear understanding of what it's like to sell into a B2B and
B2C environment. As you can see, I am, and have been, an entrepreneur for a long time – so I am talking from experience here. I totally  understand the problems entrepreneurs face every day. I understand the pain points and the emotional challenge of getting to the next level.  

Throughout my entire career, my earnings were a second income so it didn’t bother me (too much) that I wasn’t setting the house on fire.  I did okay, but never really 'made it big'. Oh I knew I was smart & all that, but I never believed I could or should make a lot of money - so I didn't.  And until things changed, I wasn't all that concerned. 

 Then the bottom fell out of my life.

Over the course of 18 months I lost my daughter, seriously broke my ankle, and got divorced after 37 years of marriage. So there I was– a woman over 50, who for the first time ever had to make some serious money in order to be self-supporting. That was huge. Right then I knew if I didn’t do something dramatic I would never be able to live the lifestyle I envisioned for myself.

I had already tried working in a variety of industries, and with my marketing background, of course I tried the hot new marketing trends.  I even got more sales training.  I was doing everything right, but nothing changed. I was still struggling . . .  just like I always had.

So I went searching.  I came across some research that explained how 95% of my success depends on my beliefs and is guided by my subconscious mind. BOOM!!! This explained so much!

That’s when I knew it wasn’t my mechanics that needed fixing, but it was my brain that needed an overhaul. I learned the only thing holding me back was me. You see, I had never been taught to expect success. I believed that was always reserved for someone else.  

When I looked at my situation and lined it up with this huge AH-HA moment about mindset, I knew I had to take control over my finances. So I began using success science techniques to retrain my brain’s perception about money and abundance. If these techniques worked for me, I knew they could work for anyone. And They Did.

To make sure it just wasn’t a fluke I shared these techniques with other professionals who were having the same problems. And they had amazing results too!  Feel free to look at my testimonials. These techniques work.

What I didn’t understand at the time was how HUGE this problem is. If it were an illness, it would be an epidemic. It affects people across all industries, regardless of where they live and what they sell. After I saw how widespread the problem was I decided to use my prior skills and knowledge along with these really exciting scientific techniques to develop a program which helps you rebuild your confidence, overcome any mental blocks you may have, and reach your goals.  This business coaching system is different because it retrains the subconscious mind and helps you to shift your behavior patterns, thoughts and beliefs from ones of scarcity and fear to ones of confidence, worthiness, and success. 


The Simple Success Program is a unique, intensive online business coaching program which helps you bust through those mental sales blocks that has limited your success.  It's designed to retrain your brain at the organic subconscious level using hypnotherapy,  NLP, and other scientifically proven techniques so your brain and body can relearn how to work in concert with each other and support you as you achieve your goals of today. It's a program that will help you upgrade your behaviors, habits, thoughts and beliefs.

Because your training occurs on the conscious level and sub-conscious level of your mind , it happens from the inside - out and the outside - in. This make your transformation simultaneous and the reason the magic can happen so quickly.

Personal Transformation Sessions

These personal coaching sessions are your opportunity to customize this program to your specific needs rather than use the cookie cutter approach. They include in-depth discussion about what changes you've experienced already, and where your continued challenges are.  This is your time to make your very specific mindset shifts that impact your results. These sessions are recorded for your continued use.

Entrepreneurs and sales professionals, just like you, who are serious about taking their business to the next level but keep hitting roadblocks along the way are joining this program.  They understand that the one thing they haven't changed yet is their mindset and they are ready to naturally expect success. 


Although your program occasionally refers to traditional business coachy topics such as time management, etc. the focus is on mindset. And you have personal access to me as your mindset expert and coach.  You work on the inner and outer principals of success and look at your business from an organic perspective. My program is unique because it incorporates retraining the brain as a major part of the process. And as you know the brain runs the body, so if you want your behavior to change so you can attract the level of business you want, your brain needs to change first.  

This program doesn't let you settle for ‘fine’ – that just leaves too much money on the table for someone else.  You’ll always get straight to the point, honest feedback about what’s blocking your success and how to get rid of it NOW so you can start getting results you want in in record time.  I have a knack for being able to see through the minutiae and really get down to the root of the challenge.

I use Zoom for our sessions so you can access your training from anywhere. If you want to see my smiling face in person,  you are welcome to join me at my office located in St. Louis, Mo. for your personal one-on-one sessions.  


The Simple Success Program  was created for those individuals who are absolutely serious about reaching aggressive goals and breaking through resistance. 
Because my personal expectations are so high, I work best with people who are 'ready to get it done'.  You’ll want to be open to different modalities of coaching because this is like nothing you’ve ever experienced. There are also practical tools included so you’ll be expected to take serious and consistent action. No excuses anymore. This program is a different way of thinking and you receive full support while you make the shifts that impact your success.  


Because I spend one-on-one time with you, I cherry-pick who joins the program,  choosing to (gently) turn away those who are not suited for, or have needs not addressed, in this process. It wouldn’t be fair to them. The  Simple Success Program is for individuals who are experiencing some level of success now, but want more. If you don't fall in this category at this time, it’s absolutely OK.  Just do yourself this favor:

Follow me on Facebook at The Savvy Mind. You'll see exciting posts, tips,  and motivational blurbs on a regular basis. Doing this will help you get primed for our work together. When you’re ready, we’ll get you started. I'm in no rush, and will be here when you need me.

Other types of personalities not suited for this system are skeptics, whiners, and individuals who challenge every aspect of the program.  If you aren't open to the process please don't call. This is probably not a good fit for you and you don't want to waste your time or money. Is that fair?
