We recently connected with Michele Liggett and have shared our conversation below.
Hi Michele, thanks for joining us today. What was the most important lesson/experience you had in a job that has helped you in your professional career?
The most important lesson I have learned throughout my career is that attitude is everything! Your mindset and the way you show up can have an impact (positive or negative) on your whole day (month and year)! As an elementary school teacher, I recognize the importance of a positive attitude with both students and other teachers. Everyday I make an effort to show up as my best self, maintain a positive mindset and practice gratitude.
Michele, before we move on to more of these sorts of questions, can you take some time to bring our readers up to speed on you and what you do?
I am proud to say that I have been an elementary school teacher for 24 years! My teaching career has been rewarding, as well as, extremely stressful and challenging! Throughout my years as a teacher, I was constantly searching for ways to manage daily stress and anxiety. This search sparked my on-going self-care journey.
Some of the first steps I took on my self-care journey to feeling better, were journaling, practicing yoga and meditation. After a couple of months – I noticed that I was able to manage my stress and anxiety easier and I started to feel better! I then added lots of personal development, and started taking CBD!! Staying consistent with my routine and incorporating CBD daily was life changing. The level of balance, calm, patience and ability to sleep was amazing. I knew I had to share this feeling with everyone!
Through my strong desire to help other people decrease stress and anxiety ,Trudevata CBD and Trudevata SELF were born!! Both Trudevata CBD and Trudevata SELF are about helping stressed out people find calm, clarity and balance so they can feel their best!
I am very proud of Trudevata CBD because we provide people with a quality, USA grown hemp product that they can trust. I am extremely grateful that Trudevata SELF allows me to share my passion for helping people find calm, clarity and inner peace through 1:1 coaching. I love teaching, guiding, and inspiring people to feel better.
Are there any books, videos or other content that you feel have meaningfully impacted your thinking?
One of my favorite books is The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks! The message in this book is life changing! It is all about understanding your Upper Limit Problem and making the Big Leap into your Zone of Genius.
My favorite part of the book is when the author tells you to ask yourself: “Am I willing to feel good and have my life go well all the time?” This book has helped me push through some mindset blocks and really inspired me to keep challenging myself to feel more joy!
Any advice for growing your clientele? What’s been most effective for you?
Building relationships & community have helped immensely in growing my clientele. I love meeting new people at workshops, markets and events. I always try to be authentic, honest and lead with love.
A quote from one of my favorite coaches, Lindsey Schwartz is: “We are not meant to business alone.” This is so true!
