Introducing: TELL YOUR STORY

Hi friends! I’m super excited to announce a new section of my blog — TELL YOUR STORY

The purpose is to foster a sense of community with people from all around the world.

We have more in common than we may sometimes feel. We all struggle. We experience the same emotions — but at different times, in different contexts, to different extremes. Through our unique perspectives, we have the ability to share, connect, help, and inspire others. And in helping others, we help ourselves.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve asked a couple of individuals to fill out a brief form and share a little bit about themselves through the following questions.

  1. What inspires you?
  2. What excites you?
  3. What’s your personal philosophy?
  4. What advice would you give someone who is currently feeling lost or purposeless in life? What helps you or has helped you before in these situations?
  5. Have any specific books/podcasts/videos/social media accounts/people had a significant impact on you and your outlook on life? If so, what would you share with others?
  6. Tell me a bit about your story– what is a part of your story (or your identity) that has most shaped you as a person?
  7. What are you hoping readers will take away from what you have to share?

As you can see, I want to encourage as many people as I can to contribute their genuine, authentic perspectives. I’ve designed the survey so that it (hopefully) isn’t too big of a time commitment for you. Think of it as a quick journaling exercise. But the value and inspiration you’ll provide will resonate with readers more than you might think.

Think you might know someone who is interested in sharing a little bit about themselves? Please share this post and let them know!

I also am providing all participants with an opportunity to promote their hobby, small business, side project, website, book, poetry collection, social media accounts etc. with my readers. This both serves as a chance to promote yourself, but also, inspire others.

Through my time blogging, I’ve met so many incredibly kind and passionate people — from business coaches, to nutritionists, poets, to personal finance pros, career mentors, and so much more. Each person has their own unique, creative and impactful project(s). They don’t all necessarily know each other. And there are many more out there who I can’t wait to meet.

But I think we can benefit from virtually “meeting”, learning from, and connecting with inspiring people through hearing their responses and perspectives to some important life questions.


Over the course of the next week, I’ll be posting one story per day–so be on the look out in the coming week for new posts!

If you are interested in joining the community and sharing your answers to the questions listed above, please reach out to me with any questions, or go directly to fill out the brief form by clicking the button below.

  1. Hi Michelle 🙂

    I only scanned the post, but clicked the button mainly because the general idea seems like FUN! 😀

    But on my computer I block 3rd-party content — does the “Start Here” button start content from PollDaddy or something like that?

    In anycase, I’ll DL your post so I can read it later.

    🙂 Norbert

    1. Hi Norbert, thanks for your feedback on the idea and I’m so glad you like it! I used the button feature through the WordPress editor. That’s good to know that it doesn’t come through. I’ll see what I can do about that 🙂

  2. Love the idea for your new blog. I am sure that does not surprise you, given that I work with the author of The Story You Need to Tell. 😉 Best wishes on success. I will keep a watch for your posts.
