Style Reset

I’ve listened to many of your of your shows, and they are all good! The show with Mary Lou Andre was one of my very favorite episodes! I loved all of her pointers and that she spoke favorably of so many different brands and shops. So many stylist, want to minimize the brands and shops that cater to the 50 and over age group.

Menopause brain?!…who knew?!

Michele had such an informative discussion with Dr. Lisa Mosconi regarding women’s health during menopause (specifically brain health) and how the medical industry needs to get out of the dark ages when it comes to this important transition in women’s lives. If you are a women in pre-, peri- or post-menopause….this episode is for YOU!!

Leads with a human approach

One of my favorites. You can tell Michele puts her all into her episodes. The conversations are relevant, inspiring, and practical. She gets to the heart of what will resonate with her audience. I aspire to have her level of kindness, intelligence, and organization, and consider her to be a mentor of mine. Thanks so much for your work, Michele!
