Attract Loyal Fans By Sharing Stories Authentically
You Don’t Need the Massive Debt-Payoff Clickbait

Michelle explains that being authentic in her content, even though not always “sexy,” best serves her audience and her desire to be true to herself.

- How she overcame the roadblocks to her financial freedom
- Her thoughts on the “financial unicorn” narrative
- What is her ultimate goal when creating content?
