Emma Michell: Business Coach & Portfolio Finance Director.

I trained at Ernst & Young in London and worked in financial management for a number of years, both in the UK and abroad.  I loved the travel but traditional office life was never for me.

After suffering with serious illness and burnout in 2009, my husband and I bought a Citroen HY van followed by a shepherds hut.  We ran a hospitality business for almost a decade employing up to 20 people and catering at events including Glastonbury and Wilderness as well as running a coastal cafe in Pembrokeshire and having a baby, just as I turned 40.

My journey has given me an in-depth knowledge of the challenges that women in business face in their lives and in their work.  I have a passion for making things as simple and effective as possible and believe that doing something you love looks totally different for all of us but is possible for each of us, if we're brave enough to work out what it is and make the changes involved to get there.

Once on that journey, we can start to feel really good about ourselves in mind, body and business!

Who am I to help you?

I qualified as a Chartered Accountant almost 25 years ago and have been working in and with businesses ever since then.  Alongside this, I am a Yoga Alliance qualified teacher and am currently studying the ILM 3 Coaching at Leeds Beckett.

My current work.

My consulting practice was born in May 2020 as I pivoted my business away from hospitality to a more balanced lifestyle.  I now work with a handful of clients helping them to understand their business, their numbers and plan for sustainable growth.

I also offer 1:1 coaching journeys for women in business. 

Workshops, retreats and community coming soon...

Where in the world?

I am based in West Yorkshire and work with clients locally and nationally, in person, via phone, Zoom and email.  

Working with Me.

I always start with a free 30 minute consultation to get to know you and your business  and check that we're the right fit to work together.   

Once you have booked your coaching journey, I will ask you to complete an on-boarding diagnostic to find out a little more about you and your needs so that I can plan your sessions.

We will then agree arrange our initial coaching meeting and begin your coaching journey.

Sessions are 1 hour.
