On My Heart: Remember Who You Are

It's been five months of the craziness with one thing piled onto the next. I've coped well and not so well in it all. The healthy coping came in the writing of my book. I'm proud of what I created. It makes me smile. I'm excited about what I will share with you this fall. I thought I had dealing with the world cased.
Then George Floyd's murder happened and dredged up racism trauma, collective...

How To Make New Choices That Conquer Fear

I've been quiet all week. If you think it's a result of the pandemic and the civil rights momentum, you're wrong. Understandably, you'd think this though since it's what is on everyone's mind and heart. But now, it's something more significant than the events of the world (plus I've been out in the wilderness with almost no cell service).

I've been quiet because of the push and pull that...

What Happens Before You're Called To Stand Out

Having moments of anxiety just before you are called to stand out, are part of your growth. If your heart races and your breath shortens just before you know it's a moment to make your mark, you are right on track.

I felt like this - yes, me - last night when I hit "join meeting" for a live Zoom with members of the Border City Rotary Club where I was the guest speaker. My long-time...

2 Unexpected Benefits Of Shifting Your Style [PODCAST]

 

It's easy to get focused on "the clothes" when the world talks about style as an outcome of putting together pieces and accessories.  What if there was something more?  There is.  

Studies show that attaching symbolism to what you wear boosts performance. It's true and it works. I've watched countless women who are my clients do it, but there's more.

Dress for More Confidence and Productivity [PODCAST]

This episode was actually a live broadcast that goes down as the one I am MOST proud of. (You can watch it above or listen below.)

My intention was to share how to be more productive and confident starting with how you get dressed. It turned into something more.

It turned emotional - not for myself but for hope for you - about who you are becoming, what potential you have to create...

You Are Being Prepared For A Success You Can't Yet See

I shared this in an Instagram post a short few hours after I did this Facebook Live broadcast that, I have to say, was the one I am most proud of in my almost 5-year live-broadcasting history.

My intention was to share how to be more productive and confident starting with how you get dressed.  It turned into something more.

It turned emotional - not for myself but for hope for you - about...

Finding Confidence Through The Fear of Uncertainty

confidence mindset Mar 13, 2020

There’s a lot going on. (Do I need to mention Covid 19?)  I know. We are all in uncertainty and that’s the place that Fear likes to peek up, and in some cases, run out waving its arms - like those Wacky Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Men - to get your attention.

I like to put Fear in its place and deflate it when I can. Here’s my go-to list in an uncertain situation:

How To Love Talking About What You Do [PODCAST]

What happens when someone asks, “Tell me what you do?” Your mindset around how you will be judged is a huge indicator of whether you answer the question with confidence that builds connection or if you freeze and find yourself hiding with what you do. Listen as Michele shares how to see what you do as more than an elevator speech or pitch but as an expression of the inner...

Women Change The World With Their Confidence

WOMEN CHANGE THE WORLD WITH THEIR CONFIDENCE

:: By Michele Charles Gustafson ::


When women have the sureness of self, we can do anything.
We say “yes” when they want to.
We say “no” when they need to.
 
We give when we can’t.
We give more when we can.
 
We stand up when we are compelled.
We sit down when we are ready.
 
Our words speak.
Our works speak louder....

One Way To Blast Self-Doubt

I did a little experiment over the weekend. I sat down and figured out my impact factor, my reach, since creating the online presence portion of Hue And Style in 2016.

One hundred and fifty thousand (150,000) was my impact factor. That’s the reach - the people touched by my clients - the women who have come through my program. It’s the ripple effect of helping my clients reclaim...
