Your Game Changer
Retired Hall of Fame Pro Athlete | Nike Product Manager | Investor | Business Advisor | Orator
A skinny country gal no more than 10 or 11 years old with dreams of my parents sitting in the Olympic stands as a gold medal hangs proudly from my neck.
That dream never came to pass.
At the ripe age of 11, Michelle unknowingly started her entrepreneurial journey.
Although she was merely trying to provide for her family by taking some of the pressure off of her ailing mother she accidentally stumbled across what she now calls the Game Changer Formula.
She would go on to receive over 150 academic and athletic scholarships, graduate with a degree in Psychology, become the first woman to dunk in a nationally televised game, drafted in the first round, first to dunk in the WNBA All-Star game, and retire as a sports Hall of Fame inductee in 2018.
During a stellar 16-year pro career she would be mentored by three billionaires who would drastically change her perspective on life, business, and more.
This slowly evolved into numerous accolades, a professional speaking career, multiple business opportunities, brand ambassadorships, and joint ventures.
Now Michelle looks to take the leadership skills learned while playing professionally to corporate America at Nike.
Her mission is to empower underserved communities through creative consumer initiatives.
What is a Game Changer?
A game-changer is someone that is able to enter 'the zone' at will to reach heightened and sustained levels of productivity for extended periods of time.
They see and value those who are already where they want to be. A game-changer willing to humble themselves, have an insatiable hunger for knowledge and hustle to implement the systems and processes of their mentors speedily.
Everyone isn't game-changer material. Some are perfectly fine cheering from the sideline. Others will be fans sitting in the stands 'talking' about what should be done BUT never putting in the actions necessary to WIN.
You must decide who you will be: the fan, the cheerleader or will you step onto the playing field of life and live fully. Decisions yours.
