How A Confidence Expert Survived Depression

Every successful person has an origin story.  Origin stories are a foundation for who you are and what you do.

Because when we have the courage to tell our own story, we give permission to others to explore and do the same. I want to give...

What I Really Do That You May Not Realize

What I do for women is not for “fashion-hunters,” it’s for “impact-makers”.

I help women be noticed, be memorable and create a picture of total confidence for themselves and their public by teaching them to know every single detail about who they truly are, to rediscover their deep purpose and to present themselves for the lives they are creating.

It may start as I...

How To Conquer Conference-Goer Overwhelm

The last time I was at a business conference was in 2006. It was for the direct selling business I had built, and I was in the top 1% of the company as a Director, top seller, and leader of a top-selling unit.

Since that conference, I’ve switch industries, switched what I provide and how I deliver it. With all of those changes and my remote and rural home location, I had settled into the...

The Most Beautiful Way To See Yourself Differently

 

The most beautiful way to see yourself differently through the eyes of another who believes in you. Here is what happened to me.

In the last weeks, I’ve felt some old demons arise. I am not immune. I have dips too. Gratefully, I have a rock-solid way to turn the dip into a climb.

aboutmichele confidence Nov 14, 2018

Every superhero has a turning point in their origin story - how they come to be and own their magic, that they use to help others. I have mine too.


This photo was my very first Instagram post. I then shared it on my Facebook profile with the caption, "Everything must change nothing stays the same." I love that song.

It was at this time I was in the "sad times." I call it. I appeared confident on...

The Gift of Resiliancy

aboutmichele confidence Jul 05, 2018

Some call it Grit.  I call it Resiliency. It’s the ability to bounce back and I think one of the most valuable qualities anyone can own.  It comes from experience.  You can’t fake it.

My resiliency comes from 3 experiences in my life:

  • Moving 2500km from home at 18 to go to university. I knew no one and had no idea how I was going to get my 2 suitcases and 1 cargo...

Who's The Lady? : A Re-introduction

Sometimes we get down deep in what we do and who we do it for, that we forget many people may be "meeting" us for the first time on social media or on our website.  

Since I teach my clients how to create a total image with their personal brand, I know it's so important to every now and then re-introduce yourself to the new eyes who are seeing you in the wide world of the internet.
