On "Being Intimidating"

I got a question on my Instagram Stories yesterday and it’s always one of the biggest worries for women. It was about how not to come across as intimidating with personal image in male-dominated arenas.

I have an answer for all arenas.

If you have a rock-solid level of self-assurance and show up like it, you will ALWAYS be intimidating to somebody.

I want you to know that this...

The Blissful Breakthrough That Happens When You Show Up With Purpose

I'm not sure how to articulate what I feel. I'm writing this just after getting off my New Year-New Season Intention Setting session with my advanced mentorship clients. I taught a lesson on how to frame intentions in a whole new way - a way I've never seen or heard done before - and it landed with my people. Boy, did it land.

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.

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 sit down when we are ready.
Our words speak.
Our works speak louder....

Your Dreams vs. Your Comfort Zone

quotes Apr 28, 2017

This week, I ran a 3-Day challenge in my Facebook community. If you haven't experienced a "Michele challenge," let's just say, it ain't no "fluffy" challenge.

I ask my participants hard questions. I challenge their thinking of their status quo. I teach them that the conventional thinking they have held is wrong and is what is holding them back. And then I ask them to personal responsibility and...
