Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”: One of the most impactful things I heard over, and over and over again was the importance of the morning routine and while it seems obvious it is often overlooked. When starting something new and thinking of planning and preparation, don't forget about the morning routine. The most successful people are “relentless” in their morning routines and systems. Michelle started early at the age of 8 and it was intriguing to hear as she journey through her career how she was being a sponge and learning things that were seeds for her own firm. One of the most valuable things she mentioned is that she didn't just “jump”–she planned and prepared with intentionality prior to her launch date. Also, how important it is to not lose or sacrifice your journey along the journey.

So I always say, be intentional about your business. Be intentional about your future. Take it into yourself, be proactive and take it into your own hands. Because too many times we people almost kill ourselves to build somebody else's dream. And they die with their dreams, die inside of them. And I just said, oh no, that this is just not what we're doing over here, so I was able to launch and that's been it.
