From Michelle’s website:
I’m tired of watching my fellow voice practitioners spiraling into the same shiny object syndrome, the same alone-ness, and the same scarcity and competition-driven tropes pushed by all the pushy marketers and my-way-is-the-right-way “influencers.”
Using what I’ve learned from years of working with hundreds of micro-businesses, we will work toward long-term growth and sustainability that ebbs and flows WITH you while maintaining your cash flow and your mental health – because I HAVE BEEN THERE in the midst of transition after transition, change after change.
The SpeakEasy Cooperative is a for-profit community organization dedicated to embracing, engaging, and expanding the humans who run voice-related businesses to bring maximum impact and intention to every income stream we touch.
