Listen in as Michelle shares her journey from working with the one and only, Zig Ziglar as a college student to writing the book that would eventually grow into her incredible platform. 

It all started when Michelle wanted to write her story, not for fame or fortune, but so she could share it, even if it was just with her kids. What she didn’t expect was for it to open up not only speaking opportunities, but coaching, events, and eventually her very own publishing company.
