What is a “Now” leader… Leading where you are right NOW, for the Now! CourageousMi’s aim is to embolden individuals to find their own CourageousMi; those who know they are meant to do extraordinary things and started walking out their individual vision but LIFE HAPPENED…

You can rediscover your passions, and you will live your life again, and live on PURPOSE!
As a certified life coach, it is my profound desire to assist you in discovering the keys to unlocking the vision and purposes that ALREADY exist within you.

Facing unknown and new challenges can be scary and overwhelming. Far too many of us allow the issues and incidents of life to dissolve and eat away at our God-given purposes and passions.
Together we will discover your motivators and develop a path that empowers you to reconnect all areas of your life – career, family, friendships, and transitions.

CourageousMi is not counseling nor therapy, it is designed for ordinary people who want to accomplish extraordinary things. We will examine the physical, mental and spiritual/moral components of your life and assess how to reconnect and maximize your personal assets for success!

I do this through:

  • One on one coaching/mentoring
  • Online coaching/mentoring
  • Seminars and Class Instruction

Are you ready? It is no longer enough to just survive…It is now time to THRIVE!

Let’s begin the journey together to finding your COURGEOUS YOU!!!

Who is Michelle Small?

As a speaker she is creative and insightful, known for her dynamic and pragmatic ability to both equip and mobilize leaders by providing them with needed tools, training, and practical resources.

Armed with the belief that, “if God brought her to it, He would see her through it”, she chose to reinvent, redirect and relocate. While battling with feelings of rejection and abandonment Michelle was introduced to Nouthetic Counseling and learned the discipline of looking at herself in light of God’s Word for true identification, direction, and fulfillment. Her testimony is one of overcoming, forgiveness, courage and the unyielding pursuit of purpose, and it was in 2008 CourageousMi LLC was founded.
