Sidneyyyyd ,

Thank you!

I deeply value and appreciate the knowledge that you share. You have sparked my creativity and interest in starting a side-hustle/passion project. Just pre-ordered the book and it cannot arrive soon enough!

Genuine host

Michela is very genuine and generous with her community. It takes a lot of vulnerability to open up about areas of growth, personal finance and (from one of her last episodes) loneliness. We’re all navigating different challenges and I think she’s brave for putting hers in the public sphere. Plus, she offers actionable tips and strategies. Appreciate her perspective!

Official_GO ,

Sorry

The way you talk in here is so arrogant, too much ads and self love
