Who The Heck Am I?

Hey, I’m Michelle :)

You’re a rebel? What? That’s crazy, so am I!

Did I just make this awkward? Yep. Better late than never, I say :P

Well anyways, welcome to my little slice of heaven on this thing we call the internet.

Why Am I Doing This

I want to help you embrace your inner rebel tendency and create a business that works for you.

I want to create a community of rebel entrepreneurs to bring us together to:

1) Celebrate our rebel awesomeness

2) Share our experiences and what actually works

3) Support each other when we’re surrounded by other non-rebels, who have no idea what it’s like to be a rebel

What I Value

1. Doing things differently

2. Simplifying everything

3. Taking action

4. Doing what feels good and letting go of the rest. (I borrowed this from my amazing coach, Ruth.)

A Little Bit About Me

I’m from Scarborough, Ontario. I started off creating printables and planners with my Etsy Shop. Even though I loved creating planners and printables, I knew it wasn't exactly what I wanted to do.

After a year of running my Etsy shop and marketing my shop on Pinterest (and after realizing that a lot of my friends would come to me with Pinterest questions), I changed my focus to sharing my Pinterest skills with entrepreneurs like yourself.

But then the Pinterest thing didn’t feel exactly right. So I asked myself the age old question of “What the fuck do I really want to do?” and “What do I love talking about all day?” and my answer was - how to hack it as a rebel entrepreneur.

When I found out that I was a rebel tendency (from Gretchen Rubin’s The Four Tendencies), it was like everything clicked into place. I could finally explain why I am they way I am and why, no matter how much I tried, I couldn’t change myself to be the person people wanted me to be.

So I said fuck it and now it’s my mission to find other rebel entrepreneurs and bring us together into one big happy family. Just kidding, that sounds horrible.

I’m creating a space for us to hang out and share what works for us. Where we can celebrate being a rebel and not be looked down on as a “lazy, unorganized, slacker, (insert whatever someone has called you here)” person.

Time to get our rebel on and say fuck it to what we’re “supposed” to do!

5 Random Things

  1. I've jumped out of a plane (willingly) and I've cage dived with Great White Sharks. I freaking love sharks.

  2. I've traveled solo to India, road-tripped solo across South Africa, and been coast to coast in Canada. I like to travel :)

  3. I was an advanced driving instructor for over 3 years. I still teach once in a while.

  4. I prefer lakes over mountains. (Even though mountains are pretty cool, that Everest movie scares the crap out of me.)

  5. I'm an INFJ and love my solitude. But I'm definitely not shy.
