Helping You Balance Work, Home and Health

Experiencing joy should be a central part of daily life.

Instead, people often find themselves just “going through the motions,” while neglecting their true emotional, spiritual and physical needs.

Serving clients throughout Florida from her offices in Gainesville, Lifestyle Strategist Michelle A. Smith guides clients to discoveries that result in happier families, more successful careers and improved wellness.

Part motivational speaker, part practical leader, Michelle provides both inspiration and proven tactics to generate beneficial lifestyle changes. Her optimistic outlook and energetic persona motivate workshop attendees to eagerly soak in all life has to offer.

Stop stumbling through your days and start living the Balanced Life!

Life Coaching – Strategies for Balanced Living

Some people need a little help getting organized. Others may need help with identifying goals and figuring out how to get there. You may be contemplating a career change or thinking of changing your major. Life presents opportunities for change and growth every moment of every day. And we can all use a bit of help hearing that inner voice that has all the answers.

Stress Management through Mindfulness

If you only knew how powerful your thoughts are, you’d never think another negative thought in your life.

Learn to:
Be more present
Decrease stress
Have more energy
Revitalize your passions and interests

Diversity and Inclusion Training - A NEW Approach

Interactive workshops using mindfulness techniques, emphasizing personal benefits and responsibility, and celebrating the individual’s contribution to the organization. Participants are given a simple, yet challenging, strategy to live a life “inviting everyone to have a seat at the table,” and “engage in the discussion” about our differences and similarities.
