This episode is part of the Get Past Your Sh*t Book Project series featuring my brave and amazing co-authors.
Michelle D. Garrett lives in Columbia, South Carolina, with her husband and their two youngest children. She strives to equip women in business with the tools and resources to show up confidently and consistently online and off. In her work as a business and accountability coach for female entrepreneurs, Michelle is passionate about teaching her clients the importance of setting actionable goals and making time off for self-care, rest, personal growth and time with loved ones a priority.
Michelle offers resources that help women grow their home-based and small businesses. As a well-respected online community builder, Michelle has mentored and assisted many online influencers and businesswomen with expanding their own communities through social media and email marketing.
After being diagnosed with major depression and anxiety during the summer of 2019, Michelle began using her story of healing and triumph to encourage and motivate others to make their mental health a priority. She shares her journey on her social media platforms and through in-person conversations with others.
As a wife and the mom of a college sophomore, 7th grader and 3rd grader, Michelle strives to enjoy the precious moments while sharing ways to balance it all with her community.
