Michelle L Evans left her 16-year corporate career in business + marketing strategy in 2012 to start her business helping business owners to develop simple, effective marketing strategies and bottom-line results. Combining her proven business-building skill set with a serious desire to help other professionals, Michelle focuses on helping entrepreneurs cut through the cookie-cutter marketing tactics and design results-based strategies that actually work.
When she’s not working on her business, you can usually find her in the car taking one of her three kids to some sort of activity or at home cooking with her handsome and talented photographer/systems engineer/baker husband (his chocolate truffles + lava cakes are a-mazing). Check out her best tips on adventures in online business building and balancing life outside the corporate world while juggling a business and family at MichelleLEvans.com, or tune in to her Breaking Free podcast to learn more about developing an entrepreneurial mindset and busting through the fears most business owners face. www.michellelevans.com
What events led up to you deciding to take back your life?
My dad passed away very suddenly (and unexpectedly) 7 weeks after getting the ‘all clear’ sign from his doctor that his cancer was gone…
Was there a significant event or moment that made you realize you needed to make a change? What was it?
Yes. I realized how important it was to take care of myself and my body. I had been putting myself on the back burner for years putting the kids, my husband, my extended family, friends, the house, to dos, work, etc… as so much more important than ME taking care of MYSELF.
When my dad passed away, I realized that if I didn’t take care of myself I may not get the full life I truly desired AND that by NOT taking care of myself I was actually more selfish than taking an hour here or there.
