What we chat about:
- How a comment about one of Michelle’s features in a coaching session was the blessing in disguise that set her on a path to life and career coaching herself
- The lessons learned from a job that quite literally made Michelle hurl into a trash can in public and her transition into a bridging job when starting her coaching practice
- How keeping her Nancy Drew hat on ensures Michelle doesn’t take her business results personally and learns from her curveballs
- Acceptance and the power of learning to just let things go, after healing her [busy = productive = successful] patterns.
