Episode 58

How to rise (not crumble) under pressure /58

As of July 2023, we won't be posting new episodes but you can connect with Bec & Michele and continue the conversation via the links below.


Michele’s stunning solo art exhibition opened the day of this conversation, and though it will take some time to unpack all the details and lessons of this monumental effort, for now Bec is really interested in the growth she has witnessed in Michele over the last month or so of intense studio focus.

Michele talks about how an earlier version of herself would have crumbled under the pressure, but this time she found a way to rise, and rise again, in the face of each challenge and opportunity throughout the experience. What made the difference? A core conviction, backed up by determination and a success-focused mindset, and balanced by a willingness to relinquish control.

This is an inspiring and encouraging conversation about what can be possible for each of us.
