Awesome, Michelle! Exactly the distinction I was groping for, and it came at just the right moment in my work life. I so appreciate your work.
Yes! I’m so happy to hear this. Keep me posted as you apply this to your work. I’d love to hear how the insight plays out in your thought leadership! Thank you for being here and engaging!
Thanks for this video, Michelle. So much fun to watch you share your passion and expertise in such a vibrant shiny way!
Susanne – my friend, how wonderful to hear from you. I hope you are doing great! Thank you for your kind words. I must’ve known you were on the other side, we are a shiny match 🙂
Hey, my friend. Great hearing from you. I will be sharing information next week with several women who are working on building their individual businesses. Your blog gave me something to reflect upon.
Roger! So fun to hear from you! Sorry for the delay in replying. I love that you are sharing this with colleagues – thank you. And thanks for engaging!
This video seems to have technical problem and doesn’t play all the way through, atleast not on an iPad.
Hi Catherine – I’m sorry you experienced trouble with the video playing. It played for me on two different devices. Maybe it was a wireless connection issue? Or a temporary problem. It seems to be working now.
