Let's go deep...

Deeper than you've ever gone before – where the true and potent essence of you lives, and nothing is impossible.

If your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough.

Who are you?

You're an extraordinary leader pulled by a huge purpose!

Here's what I know about you...

You're more powerful than you know, leadership is lonely. And there's a price to pay for all of your success.

You get caught in traps that hold you back, that most people never see.

 

One of the things you realised when you became a leader, is that there are all sorts of challenges on the other side of the peak that you eventually got to. You craved success, you craved a title, you craved a role, you wanted to create a huge impact in the world, you got there, only to realise, Oh, now I've got a new level of challenge.

Now you have a new level of challenge or the level of challenge you haven't yet had access to.

You are often surrounded by yes people, you are surrounded by the kind of people who say yes to everything that you say or do, they constantly seek your approval. What you actually crave is a sense of someone who will push back, someone who will challenge you, someone who will ask the questions no one else will and say the things no one else would dare say to you, someone who will play with you.

 

Here are some other things I know about you.

You have felt trapped by some or all of the traps that I've seen on the other side of success.

 

The isolation trap. What I hear a lot from my clients is, I'm not lonely, but I feel very alone.

You went into this world that you thought would be really thrilling and exciting to you because you love it. You understand, you have a natural ability to do this work, you see the impact it has. And it's very lonely because you can spend most of your day behind your computer screen. And you went into this because you're a people person. And where are the people?

 

You're exhausted. But if you stopped working so hard, it will all go away. I know you that one well and you thought nobody knew that.

The imposter trap. People admire you, but you feel lazy. You get all this acknowledgment for all the things you've done, but it doesn't really feel like you're working very hard. You feel like a fraud, and worst still you fear other people finding out.

 

That's a common one amongst top performers. I call it the fraud paradox, there's this hope that one day you'll finally get into a room where you no longer feel like a fraud. You just fit. That's the desire, right, because it's difficult having this sensation of being a fraud. I hope that doesn't occur for you ever.

 

Here is why

I want it to be that way forever. You continue to put yourselves in rooms where you feel like a fraud because it means you keep upping the game, you keep playing a bigger and bigger game, you keep taking on bigger and bigger challenges. That's what I hope for you, that you continue to have that feeling, not so it overwhelms you. So it's a clue. You're in the right room.

Then there's the emptiness trap. You have everything you ever wanted, but on the inside, you feel empty. Anyone ever had that? You craved the home or a position, or a title and you've got exactly what you wanted, and after a short time, it didn't mean much. I see all the heads nodding. You're bored. You could do this with your eyes closed. This is when your big mission that other people admire you for, is no longer your big mission anymore. You're bored with it, you're done with it. Say it out loud now I'm bored Michelle, I can do this, with my eyes closed.

You crave someone who can turn up the flame, hide nothing and hold nothing back.

There's a human in there. In fact, there's a little child in there, who's running the show.

You need to get out of your own way because what got you here won't get you there and other people see what you do, they rarely know how you feel.

 

I see you. And I've got no doubt I can help you. I don't need to have done the things that you've done. If being as successful as you are achieving and accomplishing all the things that you've done, was what was needed to get to your next level of success, you'd already be there.

You must embody the powerful leader you are so that creating a huge impact becomes second nature for you to crush.


Your vision that thing inside you, won’t let you rest. You know there is greatness inside you and you have to find a way to transcend and realise your maximum vision for your life.

Are you ready to be undeniably you?

Why you'll love
working with me

I am Michelle,

I am unlike anyone you’ll ever meet. I’m a revolutionary; a rebel. I bring radical authenticity and radical honesty to my leadership practice. I’m a natural disruptor, actively seeking to destroy what’s not working – in my life – and yours if you choose to work with me.

 

In my life, I have risen above enormous challenges. Through it all I knew there was greatness in me; important things that I needed to do in this one incredible life I had been given and nothing was going to hold me back. Now, through my work, the relationships I have built and the incredible clients I work with, I continue to rise.

Unapologetic and fierce, I lead from where I live. My life is a testament to what living as an undeniable leader looks like. I have created the impossible in my life and I know I can guide you to that place within yourself – from where you will execute your vision for change in your life.

 

This is my personal vision and mission. I know that when I help a client 10X their impact and 10X their income while multiplying their peace, that I am living the maximum vision for my life.

 

Are you ready to live the maximum vision for yours?

What makes me an Undeniable Leader? 

All of life, the light, and the dark is for me 

When I began writing my memoir This Woman (now Rebel Woman), I wanted to help women unlock the champion inside. It was through that often painful process of revisiting the past – the good, the bad, and the ugly – that I realised that leadership was absolutely and utterly my purpose – and it had been my whole life, I just didn’t know it then.

 

It was my calling, my soul’s purpose, and what all my life’s experience had been building up to. I was struck by this revelation that all of life, the light and the dark, all that had happened to me up until that point, had happened for me and not to me.

 

I realised at that moment, that everything I would ever need was deep inside of me and that I just needed to let it be just who it was – me – a rebel, a disruptor, a revolutionary force for women. 

I'm a leader, consultant, thinking partner, and trusted advisor to world leaders, politicians, and philanthropists who play a big game.

My clients include ultra-successful people (clients whom you would assume don’t need a coach) who are led by their integrity, vision, and purpose. Clients who are serious about creating a huge impact in the world.

 

I'm really good at challenging people who don't often get challenged and messing with the thinking of people whose thinking has gotten them to where they're at today but can't get them to the next level they need to get to, or a level they haven't accessed yet.

 

Together we create an impossible vision, a vision so big it seems impossible at that moment and then we create a strategy full of the tiny steps needed each day in order to come from that mission. Let me explain what that last statement means, and how I help my clients embody that way of being in the world. A vision is a place to come from, it is not a place to get to.

 

I help my clients embody whom they need to be in order to show up in the world having accomplished every impossible aspect of their huge mission. It's lonely at the top, I create a safe space for top performers to share things deeply with me. Things they've never told another living soul.

 

Trust and complete confidentiality are an absolute must in my practice, I never name clients publicly, which is something that my clients have come to trust and value the most.

 

  

 

 

 

There is more, infinitely more that you can be and do with your one incredible life.

My approach is raw and real. I don’t hold back and you are encouraged to do the same. I have found and my clients have
too, that it’s in that place of deep discomfort that transformation and ultimately manifestation takes place. There is no other way.

Are you ready to go further and higher than you've ever gone before?

"What a beautiful gift you are!"

My entire life shifted in the time I spent with her. I am beyond grateful. I am implementing the super easy, yet totally effective strategies she offered me on a daily basis. It has allowed me to continue manifesting in the great energies we discovered together. I will recommend her to anyone who desires positive change and happiness in their life!

Lisa Anderson, Coach

Here's how it works

I work with clients who are referred to me or who have inspired me. I personally invite them to a powerful undeniable leadership conversation. If you are here on this page, then either you know me, or someone thinks so much of you that they sent you my way. My services are word of mouth, expensive, not for everyone, and most certainly are not designed to be.

 

You and I work together for 6-12 months. Anything less than that won't set you up for the complete transformation you are after. 

 

How we work together:

We start by scheduling weekly calls but this is based on your needs. 

Some of my clients prefer just 1 or 2 calls a month. But all of them have what I call “Virtually Unlimited Coaching.” 

When you need support, we make time. 

  • 6.5 or 13 months of support. 

  • Introductory questionnaire and overview analysis.

  • A range of personality assessments to assess how you operate best in the world—at your best and under stress. 

  • Up to 4x scheduled 60-minute sessions a month on Zoom.

  • We may not need the full 60-minutes. Sessions are not based on time, they are based on insights. 

  • Laser coaching calls, as needed.

  • We use an AI app to transcribe our conversations in real-time, so you always walk away with a word-for-word summary of each conversation.

  • Video recordings of our Zoom calls, available within 24 hours. 

  • A dedicated Whatsapp number – for fast brainstorming or Q&A.

  • Feedback, strategies, recommended resources, and action items.

Before we begin, ask yourself these questions...

 

For how many years have you wanted to make your maximum possible mark in the world?

For how many years have you longed for that deep, love-filled, passionate life, and the experience of living each day as the powerful being you know deep down you are?

For how many years have you made do with “almost” and "good enough"?

 

Concierge Trusted Advisor 

This package is an additional service I offer my full-time clients or those referred to me by clients. It is special and bespoke.

 

What it gives you is peace of mind. What it gives you is confidence. 

That's precisely what I create for my Concierge Trusted Advisor clients:

 

1. Confidence. 

2. Peace of mind. 

3. Bespoke support.

 

We start by scheduling weekly calls but this is based on your needs. 

Some of my clients prefer just 1 or 2 calls a month. But all of them have what I call “Virtually Unlimited Coaching.” 

When you need support, we make time. 

You have access to all my resources. And you have access to my connections with other elite coaches and consultants, depending on your needs.

Sometimes you need high-level brainstorming. Sometimes you need Deep Coaching. Sometimes you need problem-solving. 

And in every conversation, I provoke your thinking.

Often I work with you alone. When needed, you can bring me into work with your team or even your Board. 

 

Time is your most precious asset! 

 

Concierge support for when you need it most. 

 

 

You’re not paying for my time. You’re paying for the support to be there when you need it.

 

High-achievers invest in support for when they need it, rather than paying by the hour.

  • 13 months of support. 

  • Introductory questionnaire and overview analysis.

  • A range of personality assessments to assess how you operate best in the world—at your best and under stress. 

  • Up to 4x scheduled 30-minute sessions a month on Zoom.

  • We may not need the full 30-minutes. Sessions are based on insights, not time. 

  • Laser coaching calls, as needed.

  • We use an AI app to transcribe our conversations in real-time, so you always walk away with a word-for-word summary of each conversation.

  • Video recordings of our Zoom calls, available within 24 hours. 

  • A dedicated Whatsapp number – for fast brainstorming or Q&A.

  • Feedback, strategies, recommended resources, and action items.

  • Introduction and connections to fascinating leaders and consultants to take you deeper when needed. 




If you're ready, REALLY READY, to claim these things for yourself once and for all then I invite you to start with a 60-minute, no-charge Undeniable Leadership Call. The insights you receive during this call are powerful. You will connect to your deeper vision like never before and find the courage to say YES to yourself. I guarantee it.

Transformation is on the other side of that call!

MEET

MICHELLE

I’ve been growing towards leading driven humans my entire life, I recognise myself in each person yearning to overcome her struggle. 

 

I am not a coach, coaching is just one of the tools I use. Sometimes I'm a consultant, sometimes I'm a trusted adviser, sometimes I'm a coach, I'm almost always a thinking partner and sometimes I'm a hybrid of all or some.

 

However, what I am always is a leader for powerful people, I help them remember just how bloody powerful they are and step into whom they were always meant to be. 

 

I'm not for everyone

I'm not for those who only “kinda, sorta, maybe” want to change;

those who are afraid to make mistakes and fail;

those who complain and blame others.

I'm not for you if you aren’t ready to show up to each session fully engaged;

 if you're cynical about having feelings; and

you're not ready to work harder than you've ever worked in your life. 

We're not for each other if you don’t want to create an undeniable impact

or you're not ready to explore creating a mission that feels so impossible it inspires you

to never stop exploring, growing, developing, and being a powerful leader in all areas of your life.

 

However, if you know what success takes in life, work, and play and you know you're
ready to UNDENIABLY LEVEL UP, I'm for you.

Rebel Woman, previously titled This Woman, is an inspiring and intimate memoir; a personal invitation from Michelle Margaret Marques to share in the many turbulent and triumphant experiences that have profoundly shaped her life for the better.

 

Starting out as a child in Glasgow, Michelle’s story is a brazen tale of living with fire in her hair and becoming the woman she was meant to be by learning to take her power back every step of the way. With shocking honesty and humour, Michelle takes you on a journey through her child abuse, a near-death experience, the loss of her mum and hero, time spent in prison, the birth of who she is today, and much more. Rebel Woman is a prime example of the awakening anyone can come to in life when their perspective changes from, “why is this happening to me?” to “life is happening for me and not to me.”

 

Rebel Woman, now freshly transformed, will lovingly challenge you to your core—how you view yourself and even the world around you. Michelle is on a mission to pay forward her gained wisdom and knowledge to women all across the globe; inspiring them to embrace the human experience, take back Self, and have the courage to own it all… the good, the bad, and the occasional ugly. No matter what you want from life, if you’re ready to take your power back, collect and nurture Self, and dare to own it all, then Rebel Woman is the book for you! 

PRAISE FOR REBEL WOMAN

"Marques does not mess about. From the opening chapter, this distinctly feminine experience of poverty and adversity is frank, harrowing and inspiring."
