A message from Michelle:
“I lived with anxiety, fear and a constant need for validation for many years; feeling like I had not truly earned my success but just happened to stumble upon it by chance. Today, I am no longer that person. I have learned to let go of the need for perfection, let go of the need for validation, and approach life from a place of gratitude and worthiness. After years of battling the negative thought patters around the Impostor Syndrome in my career, I finally decided to stop running the race and instead change the direction of my focus.
“When I changed my focus to self-development, while still actively thriving both professionally and academically; my whole experience changed. I went from being a corporate burnout, to a happy, healthy and successful version of myself. I now have a career, business and life that I LOVE. It all started with a change in focus, a strategy of 'self' and mastering the art of negotiation. I'm using the information I've learned, experiences I've had, the statistics of the Impostor Syndrome and examples of people I've helped to write the book, Own Your Brilliance: Overcome Impostor Syndrome for Career Success.
”I now use the knowledge I've gained and experience in the corporate arena to coach other women professionals to breakthrough cultural barriers, the Impostor experience in their own lives and achieve their next promotion or career transition. I do this with an emphasis on negotiation, leadership style, and family. Working moms are the pillars of our society and so I make it my mission to empower women, like me, to thrive at work and at home. It is not easy being an ambitious Latina, but with the right tools, coaching and, clearly set goals, you can design a career and life strategy to make an impact on the world around you, your family's legacy, and your future.”
