Are you ready to breathe new life into your journey and uncover the joy that’s been waiting for you? We’re excited to introduce you to the 4-week self-guided “Course for Joy,” your personalized pathway to greater fulfillment and purpose.

Throughout this course, you’ll engage in four self-guided sessions, each designed to empower you with new perspectives and tools to enhance your life. In addition to these enlightening sessions with accompanying workbook, we host four weekly open office hours, four inspiring videos you can watch, and four thought-provoking readings to further enrich your experience. The program culminates with a full 1:1 coaching session with me!

In my journey towards earning a black belt in karate, I learned some powerful lessons about boundaries, self-respect, and empowerment. I initially joined the class with the intention of learning how to protect myself from the dangers I faced as a woman in the world. However, I soon realized that the most important lesson was how to set and maintain boundaries. Listen here!

“People who work with me are ready to expand, committed to being vulnerable, and willing to do the work. They find more of themselves within healthy boundaries and beliefs. In all I do, my mission is to work with you to find joy and to give joy while navigating this bumpy road we individually and collectively travel. ” ~Michaela B, @MyJoyCoach✨

Life Coach

The question I am most often asked is this: 

What do you do as a life coach?

Here’s the most frequent and brief response I give in return: 

“I work with you to identify and align your values and goals with clear, repeatable behaviors and boundaries.” 


In 2022, Michaela became facilitator to Leading Women Leadership Council to guide executive business leaders through a Mastermind experience focused on connection, growth, and community while incorporating joy into all aspects of life.

Michaela also hosts courses and workshops on platforms like Uniquely U and Womxn of Tomorrow as well as corporate and organizational events.
