Hello there and welcome to CourageousMi

I'm a Certified Life Coach, a Mentor, and a Leadership & Life Skills specialist!

It has been my pleasure to help leaders of all backgrounds, in finding their own Courageous Me!

Let's work together!

What CourageousMi can do for you!

Being a good leader is not so much about choosing the right project or finding the right employee or team.

It's really about who you are as a person that matters most, not just whether your strategy is sound, whether you can trust your people. But who you are at your core!

CourageousMi designs a course of action to fit your needs. Personal and Leadership Coaching, Mentoring, or Life Skills classes are all designed with your needs in mind.

CourageousMi is NOT counseling nor therapy!

Our programs are for ordinary people who want to accomplish the extraordinary!

Together we will examine the mental spiritual and moral components of your life to reconnect and maximize your personal assets for success!


CourageousMi's goal is to assist individuals in rediscovering 

the passion, dream, and vision which ALREADY exist within you

We accomplish this through:

Personal and Professional Coaching

Our vision is to help you discover and implement your vision, purpose, and passion.

Sometimes we all need a little help viewing the bigger picture for our lives. Even if we know where we are going, knowing how to get there can be equally challenging.

Together we will examine the physical mental and spiritual/moral components of your life and assess how to build and maximize those personal assets for success.


People spend years undergoing therapy achieving limited results, rather than experiencing real-life transformation.

Together we will walk through the three C's of mentoring:

* Confrontation: encountering and applying truth.

* Concern: Correction is always done for the benefit of the counselee.

* Change:  Acknowledging there is an area in one's life that keeps them in destructive cycles.


Leadership & Life Application Classes

The most common areas of conflict we see in many relationships and organizations are breakdowns in communications, ambiguity about roles and responsibilities, internal conflicts, and leadership struggles.

Leaders know it is not about them, but it does start with them!

What Our Clients Are Saying

I have had the privilege of working in ministry with Michelle Small for over 12 years. During this time, as a leader, I have been fortunate to glean from her teaching and coaching which has increased my confidence and strategy in leadership and as a business owner. Also, during this time, I have witnessed her work with other leaders as they have begun the actualization of their dreams and visions.

CourageousMi is a beacon of light and hope for those leaders who have lost sight of their identity and the purpose in which they were gifted to the earth. It is with great confidence and conviction that I provide an endorsement of the mission, vision, and effectiveness of Michelle Small and CourageousMi.

~ Robert Miller III, M.A. - Lead Pastor

There are moments in life when God brings someone across your path that can see in you what you can't see in yourself, someone who understands the importance of the push and the accountability that comes along with it.
Michelle Small (CourageousMi) has been and continues to be that for me. I am blessed to have her wisdom and insight to help navigate what I sometimes felt was better suited for someone else and not me. Michelle has always helped me to see the bigger picture and my role in it.
~ Pastor Vanessa Hunter
