Today’s guest is a lady who believes totally in the mission that she started back in, well actually it seems like something that has been in her since a small girl.
She is driven by the belief that everyone has something significant to contribute and when people (male or female) come together and support one another; “We are truly Better Together.”
She is committed to helping individuals discover their talent and connect to the right circle of people to live out their purpose.
And that really is a key point to building success in ones life.
Surround yourself with the right people who can complement your own strengths, and make your best even better.
Setting her career out on firm foundations she left Loyola Marymount University wth a BA in Business/Political Science and started working for Accountants Overload as an account executive.
She then moved onto Robert Half International and did ten years, before becoming an Area Manager and Trainer for New Century Mortgage.
And what is most impressive is due to her outlook, and positive disposition she appears to have built on the connections that she gained at these companies, and instead of simply walking away from them, built upon them.
The no experience wasted theory, working hand in hand with no personal relationship should be wasted either.
Now she has many plates spinning at one time, with commentator, author, public speaker, and President of several global networks, as well as being a mother and wife of her beloved husband Eric all on her schedule.
So how has she done all this and still look like she is in her early twenties?
And does she see networking, and building connections as the major piece of the puzzle that people miss out on for fear of not having anything to offer?
Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Michelle Patterson.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics as:
How she remembers being a twelve year girl, and getting the opportunity to interview the Governor of a huge Californian network and thinking “He really appreciated me!”.
How when she gets home after a days work she is so energised by the days work, that she feels that she could run a marathon. That is when you know that your passion is in full swing.
How she recalled arranging a conference and finding out that she was $2,000,000 short of what she needed. And knew in her heart what decision she should take next.
How we are now able to build, create and inspire on a global scale like nothing seen before, which means the future is purely down to the decisions we make for ourselves.
Why one of the most powerful things you can do everyday is simply “Show up”….even when things are really tough, showing up is the way forward.
