My Story.png

Hey there, I'm Michelle and I chose to write my own ending

Just like you, I've experienced many ups and down in my life. I experienced heartache, loss, great love and above all beauty. 

My story is meant to inspire you to create a life of freedom.

To know that no matter what chapters may have unfolded in your past, YOU have the power to write your own ending.

The more you accept your story and choose to share it with the world the stronger your brand, business and impact will be.

JUST LIKE YOU, I'VE ALWAYS KNOWN I WAS MEANT FOR BIGGER THINGS.

I also had absolutely no problem telling everyone I met all about my dreams of being a Broadway star - yep that’s right! I dedicated most of my life, before turning 20, to getting to New York and being on Broadway. I excelled in school so I could get out and spread my wings.

After high school I joined a performing arts group and traveled through Europe teaching music to children, this is what lit the fire in me to start traveling. I felt so alive when experiencing new cultures and learning from another's way of life.

Yet, despite my love for traveling, I left the group after about two years and went the way I was always told was best, you know to get a college degree.

During college for musical theatre I started to lose my way. I began to harm myself physically and emotionally, I was confused at which direction to take and I was making poor choices which were affecting my friendships and self worth. I had absolutely no direction and was just coasting through life.

THEN MY WORLD TURNED UPSIDE DOWN IN SPRING OF 2008.
MY YOUNGER BROTHER AND BEST FRIEND WAS DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER.

 

For one year I watched my brother fight for his life. During this time I had a horrible realization that I was wasting mine. What was I doing? Where was my life going?

Have you or are you currently feeling this way? 

How could I waste my life, when the person I loved more than anyone in this world was losing his? I realized the hard way that everything can change in an instant - from his diagnosis, to his chemo, to the day we said our final goodbye, I was losing a piece of myself every time.

WHEN MY BROTHER LOST HIS BATTLE TO CANCER I MADE A VOW TO HIM AND MYSELF THAT I WOULD NOT LET MY LIFE PASS ME BY ANY LONGER.

Despite all the pain and heartache I was experiencing, I made a decision to alter the course of my life.

I truly believe it was this decision that ultimately saved my life. Just six months later I attracted the most amazing, supportive and handsome man into my life, who would later become my husband. Although my husband had always been a part of my life, he was my brothers best friend, it wasn't until I completely shifted my mindset and my self-worth that we were drawn together.

Shortly after we started dating we moved to Chicago and began to transform our lives. We had both lost someone so dear to us and knew deep down we couldn’t waste another day. We surrounded ourselves with love, passion and happiness. I graduated college with a degree in Public Relations and together we became the healthiest we had ever been, traveled the world together and continued to up level day after day.

I had found my love of traveling once again and someone to share THE EXPERIENCE AND joy with.

In December 2015, I experienced my own rebirth just as my son was entering this world.

I quickly realized that I no longer wanted to juggle working a 9 to 5 and raising my son.

I didn't want to feel drained when I got home from work, without enough energy to enjoy my family. I didn't want to have to ask off to travel, something that truly makes my heart happy, and something we plan to share with our son. I realized I really wanted it all, and for the first time I gave myself permission to have it.

In January 2016 I set out to start my business and leave my 9 to 5 by the end of the year. Without even knowing what I wanted to build my business around, but knowing failure wasn't an option, I went all in. At the end of September 2016 I left my 9 to 5 for good, and over the past year I've been able to create a thriving online business - celebrating consistent 5-figure months, traveling the world, supporting hundreds of women and more. I created my life of freedom and now I help female entrepreneurs who are struggling to gain visibility and traction in taking their business to the next level -I help them to tap into their story to create a standout brand and message that positions them as an expert in their industry.

Freedom for me is not having to apologize for wanting more out of life.

To be my own boss

To have location freedom and the ability to travel when and where we want to, without asking for permission.

To have the financial freedom and rid myself of overwhelm around money.

To have time freedom so I could be with my son on a regular basis, watching him grow, learn and soaking up every minute.

To be able to workout, attend yoga and not neglect my own freedom in the process.

To be able to make an impact in other women's lives on my own terms.  

I want to lead by example for my son, and to show him that I believe, in my very core, that a life of freedom is deserved by all.

My life has completely transformed since May 16, 2009 when I lost my brother to cancer. I have literally experienced my own personal death and rebirth. Every single aspect of my life has transformed -  I'm a new person and my reason for living each day has finally mirrored that! I have narrowed in on my ideal lifestyle and am living it every single day.

 

Are you ready to create your life of freedom? THE life YOU've always dreamed of, THE life you are meant for?

I know you have the power and I want you to know that the time is now!

Not tomorrow or the next week - NOW!

Don't put your life on hold any longer or wait for a life changing moment to make you realize you were destined for more.

The shifts I have made in my personal development have had a ripple effect on everyone around me.

But most importantly I’m finally living the life I always said I would - the life I promised my brother and eventually my son that I would create in their honor.

A life for me.

A life of freedom.
