I joined a network marketing company with Michelle about 10 years ago, while the timing wasn’t right for me (moved to a new state) she continued to thrive and build a successful business. I followed her on social media and a few months back she joined a new company and I reached out to her. Michelle has been extremely supportive but also knows I have a lot on my plate, just started a brick & mortar business, and she has not been pushy. She listens to her teams goals and finds a way to make it happen! She makes you feel like the only one on the team, even though you aren’t! I can’t wait to see her team lift off through this new business!
