we all have a unique purpose—a reason-for-being that guides us towards easier decisions and a more meaningful life. What is life without meaning?
that your personal values and heart-felt goals are not optional—if you are going to be fulfilled, they cannot be suppressed.
that sexism is real and it affects us all. It is but one of the many ‘isms’ that seek to tell us who we are and who we can become.
every one of us craves to be heard and deserves to be listened to.
there is always an opportunity for more: more perspective, more options, more love, more connection, more challenge, more freedom.
Most of all, I believe
women—aligned with purpose—will and already are changing the world.
This is why I coach:
Because I believe—no, I know—
that when we have someone to hold our vision and challenge our inner critic with love, we become master architects of our very best life.
About the name GreenLight
When I was in Hawaii, I learned about the GreenLight flash. It happens in those few moments when the sun sets and hits the ocean water. It’s stunning and in order to see it, you have to pay close attention. This is what I named my business after—an homage to the awareness that slowing down and being present are often the first catalyst toward uncovering your purpose.
Quick Facts about Michelle
Michelle's story in detail
In 2003, I was sitting in a hotel room in Connecticut for my company’s national sales meeting crying on the phone to my best friend. “I hate this work. I hate my life. But I don’t know what to do. I feel STUCK, STUCK, STUCK!”
My friend— a coach at the time— said, “What do you feel is lacking in the corporate world?”
My answer was immediate. “AUTHENTICITY AND CONNECTION.”
This was the catalyst for my transition towards purpose work. I call this moment the “Connecticut Conversation”. I referred to it often in the years that followed. It kept me motivated toward creating work that was more aligned with my heart and soul.
