From the moment she took the microphone until the moment she put the microphone down, the audience was captivated by the words spoken by Michelle Bersell. Passionate about her philosophy, Michelle’s presentation was artfully designed to create inner peace for those brave enough to step up to the challenge of emotional well-being. Michelle has a unique ability to place people at ease, which helps her reach people that can vastly range in socioeconomic backgrounds and age. Michelle is a true inspiration.

Melanie Beres, Owner Citigal Magazine

I have heard Michelle speak several times now and each time I walk away feeling motivated and energized. She did an excellent job speaking to our newly licensed CPAs. Her words encouraged them to expect more and take chances getting to that next level in their careers.

Leah Grunewald, Membership Development Manager, WICPA

Michelle, you grabbed out attention and never let it fall. Your passion for helping others is clear. Thank you for an outstanding event!

Jeannie Randles, Program & Human Resources Director KANDU Industries

What an amazing presentation to have right before finals week. What was shared about our feelings was very relatable and relevant to so many of our lives as college students right now. As you shared your personal stories, we were finally able to bring understanding to why we feel the way we do. Thank you for the amazing insights that allowed us to gain an empowered approach to our emotional well-being! 

Olivia Smith, Vice President of Member Development, WI Delta Pi Beta Phi, Maquette University

Michelle’s passion toward supporting people to live their best life was apparent from the onset of the presentation. Our attention was captured as she humorously guided us to easily understand how we unconsciously limit ourselves. By giving us specific tools to address our blocks, Michelle inspired us to face our fears and begin making simple steps to enhance our lives. She was a joy to listen to and we all wished we could take her home with us!
