Michelle is the best! I have enjoyed working with her in various capacities for the past 2 years. She is smart, knowledgeable, patient, and a true cheerleader for small businesses in Minnesota. Michelle helped me to revamp my website in a way that was simple, straightforward, and creative. She helped me to create a greater vision of what I wanted my site to look like while ensuring it was still personal and unique to me. I really appreciate Michelle’s professionalism combined with compassion and fun.

I worked with Michelle to edit my second book. She did exceptional work. She was very easy to work with, provided excellent feedback, and completed the edits in a timely manner. I loved how she helped give me insights on what topics I might need to expand on within my book so the reader could have a better experience. I highly recommend working with Michelle

Michelle at Meet the Minnesota Makers did a full website review and site development. She helped my website become more robust and detailed to better serve you. She made it easy and had great suggestions. I’m grateful to have had a partner to work through this major project for my small business.

I very much enjoyed what would otherwise have been a painful process for me. It was an absolute pleasure working with Michelle. I am so grateful for the work she has done to make my website cohesive, written in my voice, and ready to launch!

When working with Michelle on my website review, Michelle gave me the benchmarks and accountability that a small business entrepreneur like me needed.  I needed someone to come in and provide a kiss of reality to help me push my business forward. She gave me concrete, attainable goals along with some very specific visual, functional, and grammatical updates.  Also, once I dove in and eventually “finished” the project, she gave me praise and encouragement just like she was part of my team.  I am thankful for her time and guidance in a time when I felt somewhat directionless.  Many thanks to you Michelle!
