What does freedom look like for you?
“In my perspective freedom is doing whatever it is I want to do in any given moment, without a single thought of what others may think: the ability to structure my life on my terms in every aspect. I’m on nobody’s time but my own. “
Don’t give anyone the power to make decisions they won’t have to deal with.Michelle Welch
When did you realize freedom was important to you?
“When I had my second son, I knew I had to drastically change my entire life because I refused to fall into the circumstances I once did with my first son. “
What one piece of advice would you give to people that are in pursuit of their own freedom?
“Do what works for you! Don’t ask people their opinion on what you need to do to make you happy or live the life you feel you deserve. Don’t give anyone the power to make decisions they won’t have to deal with. Find your definition of freedom and run with it. Our time here is limited; make every moment count!”
As leaders in their space, they are always learning – what have you changed your mind/perspective on?
“My perspective is turn everything into a solution. If you have a problem that has a solution, you have no problem! If you have a problem with no solution, that’s your solution – push forward and start again with a new approach. Perspective is what I literally base my life off of. Time is fleeting and we don’t have enough to dwell on the things that just won’t matter in 5-10 minutes! Also FOCUS on the support and love you get versus what you don’t. Love always wins when the focus is right. Lastly, learn how to stop taking things personally.”
