After her years in corporate marketing, Michelle transitioned to business ownership, where she spent 14 years selling products directly to thousands of wonderful women buyers while supporting a team of almost 200 equally wonderful women business owners toward greater personal and financial freedom. ElleRate is a tribute to these women, in thanks for how they enriched her life personally, and for how they crystallized her understanding about the many ways in which women truly elevate the world.
