Not only is Michelle a genius when it comes to body transformation but she is also a wonderful person.

Sacred Pregnancy : Changing the conversation!

 When author Anni Daulter typed out the first words of her book titled Sacred Pregnancy she couldn't have known what an amazing journey would lie ahead for her. The book that was born from her desire to "change the conversation around the pregnancy journey for women," rapidly took on its own life - growing into a movement that will forever change the way we look at birth in this country. Anni's vision is breathtaking, beautiful, bold and raw. Though her earthy style may appear extreme to some, the core of her message resonates with all - Pregnancy + Birth are sacred! Through her book, magazine, community and retreats, Anni teaches women how to grasp their inner strength, follow their instincts and fight back against ideas of Western Medicine that women can't have an instinctual birth....more

Just Say No to Spec Work

I recently received an email request. This is not the first of such requests I’ve received, nor will it be the last. Perhaps you received the same request (or have received a similar one in the past). This request asked me for a spec article to be published in a print magazine. Spec in this case means working for free for little or no benefit to myself or my website....more
