International Solutions by Amy Farris
I've been a Michelle fan for a few years now. I came across the VA Shoestring program at a very difficult time in my life. It was a time where hundreds of people were losing their homes and businesses were closing their doors. With the economy in such turmoil, my husband & I were forced to close our floor-covering store. Feeling as if the world was crashing down upon us, we had no choice but to sell as many possessions as possible to save our home.
It was the first time in my life that I was literally unemployed with my family’s future on the line. Frantically I searched the internet for some kind of guidance. Some kind of answers to what I could do to provide food for my kids. I had NO idea where to turn until I came across a video of Michelle talking about her journey and how anyone could do it as long as you have the desire and determination to make it happen.
Michelle has taught me way more than how to organize a client’s schedule, manage their social media accounts & create amazing websites. She has taught me to believe in myself, never give up and to visualize my dreams coming true.
I have taken every program Michelle has created. Each one has influenced me in different ways. For example:
Mind Mapping: Learning this ONE tool rocked my world! I was able to take all this “stuff” I had crammed in my head and break it all up into projects with color coded sticky notes. I am able to see the big picture, know what order things need to be accomplished in and I no longer have migraine headaches.
Rockstar: Currently I am learning how to eat healthy, change my negative thoughts into Positive ones. I am setting time aside each day to do affirmations, set goals and really, figure out what makes me happy. I look forward to connecting with Michelle each week and asking her questions. On more than one occasion she has given me the strength I needed to stay focused, keep going with NO backup plan. No matter how many rejections you get - think to yourself - The next one is the ONE!
I realize that this business is going to take some time to be established but I know that as long as I keep a positive outlook, have lots of patience, and deliver excellent customer service - There's no stopping me!
If I had a chance to meet one person during my lifetime, it wouldn't be some fancy celebrity or Oprah Winfrey, I would choose Michelle. I would give anything to have the opportunity to look her in the eyes and truly thank her for guiding me through this amazing self-journey.
