    Getting organized and intentional was the key to Michelle's story. She worked in a full-time job for 4-5 years while doing YouTube. Unlike many guest stories we've heard, she actually enjoyed her job: the people, the environment. But what led her to leave was her drive to live as intentionally as possible, in alignment with her values.



    In her interview, we talk about what was missing from Michelle's otherwise-enjoyable job, how she holds herself accountable on her goals, and ways she deals with procrastination and overwhelm.

The Essential Podcast For Millennials By a Millennial

It is not often that you find a millennial who is both relevant and relatable yet so profoundly knowledgeable beyond her years. Listening to Aileen's podcasts makes me feel like I'm having a conversation with a friend who is sharing everyday tips and tricks as well as the wisdom she's gleaned from life experiences. I'd go so far as to say that if you're looking for a handbook to get you through your turbulent twenties, this is it.
