What does it take to become a visible & impactful leader in your industry?

"Oh Tolu... It takes Blood, Sweat, and Time that you don't have. Seriously... You have to create engaging content, nurture your email list, launch profitable products, own a website that works, build a powerful network, speaking engagements? Ahh!!"

HOLD ON! I do all these things - without sweat. Can I hold your hand?

You want to become more visible and valued by your audience so that you can impact their lives, and make a great income while doing it.

But at the moment:

  • What you’ve tried isn’t working
  • You need a clear plan that works for You
  • You need personal feedback
  • Most courses are generic and ineffective
  • You need a cheerleader (tough to admit, but true)
  • You don't have enough time to follow-through

As a busy entrepreneur:

You don’t have time for Trial & Error OR Never-ending courses. You need 3 things: Clarity around how to grow your brand, accountability for getting it done, and the opportunities that come as a result.

SHOWUP Circle was built to give you all THREE.

I know that the thought of growing your personal brand in small, incremental steps steadily over time probably doesn’t excite you. You'll prefer something that helps you push “fast” and move up the ladder "quickly."

But, this is the big mistake that high-performing people make often: They rush past critical strategy and head right into execution mode, with little or no real plan.

That's why they pay for PR and it falls flat, or they launch a book and hear "crickets." You end up redoing things, thinking that there must be a secret you missed.

You've come too far to let that happen to you.

SHOWUP Circle gives you exclusive access to all you need to show up as a leader in your industry.

You’ll get all my current and future self-paced courses, exclusive quarterly coaching, 1:1 office hours, creative tools, and a community of people all working towards the same goal.

I'll also help you avoid the pitfalls of doing too much, charging too little or spending too much money before you’re ready. 

When you become a member you'll get...

All these, 100% FREE.

Courses

Access to every current and future self-paced course including Content Kit, Inbox Champion, Natural Networking and more.. to help you build your brand as a leader. If it's not here, then it's not a course.

SEE MORE

Starting right away, there are courses for you to dive into. During the year, we'll add more to the course library to support your journey.

Coaching

Every quarter, we meet for a coaching event exclusive to members only. Here we set goals for our brands and businesses, and break into goal-based mastermind groups so that no one is left behind.

SEE MORE

Based on your goals for the quarter, you'll connect with people on the same journey with you and access resources tailored to your specific journey.

Creative Tools

Every expert, influencer or brand leader needs tools like this. Want to write your bio? There's a template for that. Need to pitch an editor, we've got a playbook for that too. Looking for the right app to achieve something, it's in the toolkit.

SEE MORE

Playbooks, templates, and checklists so you don't have to start from scratch every time. Experts don't start from scratch. They use playbooks. Take our own playbooks.

Cool Opportunities

SEE MORE

We want more visibility and more opportunity for you. We'll spotlight your work through our media platforms, have you feature as a guest expert and more.

“We need more people like you showing up and making a difference. It's time to go from Hidden jewel to Household name.

Immediately you join...

When you enroll, you’ll immediately unlock a FREE strategy call with me (Tolu Michaels) as early as this Wednesday so that we can sit together to create your customized journey and make the best of your 1-year subscription to SHOWUP Circle.

You’ll also get immediate access to our exclusive community of inspiring entrepreneurs and leaders where questions are being asked and answered, and people are making solid connections. This thing is not like Facebook or Slack. ZERO Overwhelm. You'll love it!

From next week, I will check in with you every single Friday to see how you're getting on with the goals we discussed, and where you may need my help or advice. Zero pressure, but you'll know you're not alone.

Also, we'll enroll you in our online school and before the end of today, all your courses are sitting pretty in your dashboard. You don't have to take them now. You have time and structure to know when to do what. Now, when you’re ready, you’ll check these items off your to-do list:

  • Set your FAST goals for the year
  • Clarify your current stage in the personal brand roadmap
  • Add yourself to the member-only directory in case someone needs your expertise

There's more, but let's keep the rest as a surprise.

CONNECT WITH OTHERS

You see this thing we do - creating, selling and serving people online? It's not everyone who gets it. And even those who get it, so many are struggling. If you're only looking at the hustlers & strugglers, you would think that's how it's supposed to be.

But no. Not everyone is struggling. With all your passion and wisdom, you deserve to meet more people like you. Being around the right people in this industry is VITAL for growth. You meet those right people and support system here.

TRANSFORMATION TAKES TIME

You are smart and can find the answer to any question. But if you've ever seen a group of doctors smoking, then you know that information is not the problem.

A one-off course would have been enough, but not in this case. If you want to become the kind of person who shows up to use their voice and gifts to help others, you need more... More time, more tools, and more support. You get that here.

What Others Say

Tobi Otokiti

Snr Product Manager

I really thought writing was not my strength but that changed after Tolu's course. Her voice rings in my head anytime I’m about to write. She has examples & lists of what to share with my audience for consistent & engaging content. The course changed my mindset & I still use the lessons in my everyday life. 

Temi Durojaiye

Registered Nurse and Blogger

I joined SHOWUP Circle wanting to establish my authority in my field. From the information and tasks here, my message is being fine-tuned daily and I know what to focus on at every point as I build my personal brand. I love the encouragement from the  circle and how pressure free it is! 

Abraham Owoseni

Life Skills Coach

I have signed up for premium programs and got some form of help; but this one was like a re-set, I literally found gold that was locked up within me and I could better articulate my offer and values for my personal brand. Tolu is a dynamic teacher.

What you'll

Learn

Increase your visibility, credibility, and grow your impact - without losing yourself.

Growing Together

That's the point of all this.  We have intentionally built real connection and a shared experience around this concept of growing together. We don't want to leave anyone behind. There's also:

BARRIER BREAKERS: We all face barriers. A saturated market, unresponsive audience, pricing hesitations. Let's handle it together

MOBILE MASTERMINDS: You won't rise to the level of your goals; you'll fall to the level of your environment. Why not curate it as needed, per time?

Your Host

Tolu Michaels

There comes a time in your life when you decide to show up for life and there has to be a way to do it without changing who you are. Right? Right!

If you know me, I'm an introvert and naturally anti-hype. I'm also a best-selling author and successful strategist, serving premium clients from across the world.

By premium, I mean they pay well yes, but also they are best-behaved human beings who challenge, inspire and refer me all the time. Opportunities call my name even when I'm not looking and I often pass some of them unto other people in my circle.

That's what I want for you.

There's no point sitting here wishing someone did that for us. It's time to do it for others. There are many people who need your help and if you keep hiding, they will keep suffering.

But how do you become that type of person? The one who influences others and shows up daily? 

That's why I created SHOWUP Circle.

In the circle, you'll connect with others, learn more about yourself and transform from hidden jewel to household name. My job is to provide the learning experience and facilitate the connection. Transformation will take care of itself.

This kind of transformation takes time. When you want to make such a change in your life, you need strategy and community - not just any community, though. You want a community of people who get you and who get what matters to you.

As you can tell, I didn't start out to become an "expert" or "influencer." I just wanted to help people, and earn more money so I could support my family. I was broke and tired -- talented, but broke.

Like anyone else, I had to LEARN how to start, create content and digital products, reach more people, sell online, and become recognized.

You may be wondering WHERE do you focus? HOW do you align everything you're doing? HOW do you get the ideas out of your head and in front of the world. What should you put on your website? How do you launch products? What emails should you send, and how do you gain REAL MOMENTUM growing your brand and creating content that sells?

Maybe you're afraid of trying the wrong thing and looking dumb... and that's okay.

Maybe you're tired of all the tips and tactics contradicting themselves... and that's fine.

Maybe you're even skeptical about buying information online... it's also okay.

What is not okay is for you to stay stuck or see someone who has the heart and the credibility to help you, and then, turn it down.

Many other educators teach only the part of personal branding they know such as websites, content, or funnels. I teach all that and more, because of my unique experience creating DIY products, done-for-you, and even done-with-you products. The entire range!

I don't just know the work. I do the work, and have the results. I've been rooting for you from day one. I'll love to show you how I've built a kind audience, launched profitable products, a bestselling book and sold high-ticket packages as a full-time mom, who doesn't even live in a popular city. If you join us, I'll show you how.

Why they love TM

Oluchi Ihekuna

Physiotherapist

Let me get it out of my chest first, I LOVE YOU! Thank you more especially for showing up and rooting for me. I started the Content Kit program and it was such a vibe! Then, the Copy Jewels training! Whaaaaat??? It was funny, relatable, and authentic. I caught myself reading it in your voice. It is like a "Copy Bible" and I intend to treat it as such.

Grace Samuel

The Bride's Assistant

I love how you are so precise on the steps to take. You've encouraged me to believe more in myself and what I have to offer. You're never aggressive on why your way is the ultimate... there are other people talking about personal branding but you come from a genuine place of care not "do-it-or-die". I've never regretted the time or money spent with you. The value I get is always worth it.

Olubunmi Obanise

Home organizing Coach

Tolu is such a fantastic, reliable, smart, and articulate coach. She made the bumpy journey look so simple and easy to ride on. I have met quite a number of coaches, but she is one with a huge difference. I’m so happy to call her my coach. Thank you TM for your time, patience and the safe space you provided for this journey to be a reality today.

I'm ready to join SHOWUP Circle

Who you'll meet here

The truth is, we don't want everybody to join us. We only want people who have decided that it's time to show up and make a difference. People who want to make more money and more impact, without losing their kindness.

We're choosy like this, primarily for 3 reasons:

You will teach

We'll challenge you to share your knowledge. We'll make you a guest expert at the bi-monthly "brand hour". We'll recommend you for speaking events. We can't do that for just anyone.

You must win

Listen, it's a lot more lucrative for me to work with individuals one-on-one, in the VIP package. If we'll both commit time & effort in a group setting like this, you must win. Period. 

Your results are necessary

Think about it. We want you to reach and help more people. We even want you to invite them to join us. But will they listen to you, if they don't see results in your own life?

Why do smart people join SHOWUP Circle?

Good Question! We asked them. Here's what they said:

85%
think it's a huge cost-saver

Most people are excited to learn and implement TM's lessons & framework, without buying each mini-course individually.

"Why did you join SHOWUP Circle?"

I've decided to be more intentional about growing my brand & influence. I need this community of serious, likeminded people.

80%

I get to ask questions and get direct feedback on what I'm doing.

60%

Tolu knows how to attract quality clients. I want more of that.

30%

I love TM's teaching style. I want to stay close and get all of her in one place.

70%

So, should you Join?

If you're naturally allergic to hype and noise, it may be difficult to become someone who "puts themselves out there." But if not you, who then? You only need the right support system. And we're here for you. So, should you join us? 

YES IF:

  • You've started working. You have a brand or business or nonprofit already. 
  • You're ready to attract and grow a smart audience
  • You don't mind learning alongside others 
  • You want to grow your influence so you can get better opportunities to help more people
  • You want to grow your income without feeling like you're selling your soul

NO IF:

  • You have never thought about what kind of brand or business you'll like to build
  • You're trying to trick people by selling what you know nothing about. I operate my business with integrity and require the same level of integrity from my clients.
  • You think influence is a bad word 
  • You want to start tonight and make 6-figures tomorrow morning. Not here, please.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is this different from Position for Profit?

Position for Profit is where you start. Once you've established your expertise and started attracting the right people, you'll need to sustain your brand, grow your network, and become a go-to person in your industry. That's where SHOWUP Circle comes in. In here, you'll turbocharge your content, visibility, email list, launches, etc.. 

While PFP is a 90-day program, SHOWUP Circle is an annual membership subscription.

Is there access to Tolu Michaels?

YEs, that's me. In the Circle, you can have direct 1:1 communication with me or with anyone else in the group. At the group calls, we also host live Q & A. Plus, I don't wait for you to reach out. Every week, I check-in with you to see how you're doing.

What if I feel stuck or overwhelmed?

Procrastination, Fear and Overwhelm are part of the terrain. It happens to the best of us. The way to combat it is to plan for it. I get stuck. You get stuck. It will happen. The question is whether you'll stay stuck. If you don't have people who can root for you or fuel you when you feel any of these, get in here now.

What can I expect to learn?

How to build your community, credibility and content. Courses include Content that Sells, Secrets of Natural Networking, Visibility Accelerator, Profitable Launching, Building a 6-figure Email list, and more.

No matter what your niche is, or your level of experience, The SHOWUP Circle is where you'll learn what strategies are working today for growing your brand.

Why do I have to apply?

Honestly, this one's for you! First, it helps you think through what you're trying to achieve. 

Secondly, If you’re going to be learning, connecting and rubbing ideas with a group of people, you’ll like to rest assured that I took my time to look through before letting just anyone in. It’s a simple application, we don’t even ask how much you’re making. We just want to know who we’re dealing with and what you expect to gain.

What if I'm just starting?

SHOWUP Circle is best for people who already have a brand/business. Before you can implement some of the strategies we share, you'll need clarity about certain things and it's best you get that first, so I recommend starting with my signature program Position for Profit.

Is there a WhatsApp or Telegram group?

The people in SHOWUP Circle already lead full lives - some have 9-5 jobs, thriving online businesses, some have young kids. We need meaningful connection, not mass communication. So, we won't be using WhatsApp or Telegram. We have our own community platform where you can message anyone or post for all to see, but it's a choice. That way connection is deep, useful, and it's by choice. Very important difference!

What do I expect to get?

Access to all my current and future self-paced courses, Quarterly group coaching events, periodic "Brand Hour" spotlighting YOU or another Member, and Office hours with TM. Make connections that are worth more than the entire cost of the program, and a special monthly surprise (watch out for that one).

How does the Payment Plan work?

SHOWUP Circle costs $750/year, paid at once. However, we currently have a three-time payment plan. You can make three payments of $275 monthly. If you take that option, you pay $275 now, and two more times, and that's it for the year!

What if I’m subscribed to another membership?

That's ok. This community is solely focused on growing your brand? This is not a “business success community,” “wealth club” or even a generic “empowerment tribe.” The focus here is really focused. We want to help you get recognised for your work, reach a larger audience, and attract premium clients. In short, when they mention top 10 people who do what you do, we want your name to be mentioned. That’s our focus here. The question is are you ready to show up and become a go-to leader?

Imagine Yourself

  • Growing your audience daily
  • Launching products and services without tears
  • No longer struggling to create "perfect content"
  • Receiving Thank you notes from friends and fans you've inspired
  • Surrounded by other go-getters who get you
  • Winning the mindset game to show up daily 
  • Speaking on important stages and being featured on podcasts
  • Writing more engaging posts in half the time
  • Earning more while doing less because you're working smarter, and not just harder
  • Being the #1 go-to person in your niche

Tolu helped me show up and mean business. Speaking with her led to a mind reset, and she reminded me about how good I am at what I do. She showed me possibilities and gave me clarity at different stages. In fact, sometimes, she’d say: 'Don't you dare charge less than $xyz for that!'
Despite how multifaceted I am as an author, film maker, coach, and pastor, I've been able to position myself as a market leader in my industry, and have become one of the top book writing coaches on the continent. I not only started to make more money, but also record better results when I began to attract premium clients. This year alone, my work has been featured on various international media platforms, and several of my clients have become authors.

Laju Iren - Book writing Coach

Within a year, I have made a side income of 5 figures from my business, helped over 200 young professionals to prepare for the PMP exam and enrolled 50 students in my program. Tolu’s materials are a breath of fresh air and she helped me stretch myself! I have watched myself grow. I have done things that would have just been "wishes" or "dreams". I don't limit myself anymore, and my mindset has grown. Now I know how to present my work with clarity and price my packages with confidence. 

I am able to share my knowledge with others and actually be a blessing. I'm doing all these while working a 9-5; serving as a leader at church as well as being a wife and toddler-mom.

Ogaga Johnson - Productivity & PMP Coach

What I had struggled with for months came to an end immediately I spoke with Tolu. I connected with her definition of my brand as it spoke to my heart. There was no technical jargon or trying to sound snazzy. She used words true to me as a person.
Engaging with Tolu’s content has helped shape my writing. Instead of using big words, I think and write in plain sentences now. Not only has my content improved, our conversations about my personal brand have helped me set up an online community for unmarried women as I became clear on what I stood for. There's something special about coming into the space of someone who knows their stuff. Tolu knows her stuff and her work has helped shape my work.
