The principles, beliefs, and values that guide my work

I created a moodboard to depict the energy I try to bring to my life every day.

If you are like-minded, I encourage you to take a course, join the community, and help me share the spirit of this message.

Let's work together to open doors, challenge ourselves to tackle the impossible, and create a better life experience for all of those in our communities and across the world.

About Me

Michelle Sterling, Founder

I have been fascinated with why we humans do the things we do for as long as I can remember. My curiosity was particularly sparked in an elevator ride one day, when I decided to turn around and face my other riders, as opposed to the door. Their reactions humored me, but ultimately led to my career in helping myself, and then others, deepen our understanding of human nature.

Here's what I know: When we understand ourselves and the world we live in better, we are empowered to make choices that allow us to live a life more aligned with our dreams. There's a freedom that comes from this knowing; an inner peace that flows in recognizing that we always have access to a better way.

My purpose in being here, on this site, is to help you find that better way that works for you so that you too can restore your freedom to dream, create the life you've always wanted, and most importantly -- to know and to be your one true self.

The Approach

A better way to learn for the life you want

All of the courses you'll find here are designed to be self-guided so you can learn a little bit, and then try out what you just learned.

Depending on the topic, some courses are so straightforward they can be completed in an hour or less.  Some may take a few weeks to really dig in and make time to take the ideas out for a test drive.

To make it easier for you to find the experience you're looking for, you'll find courses categorized as follows:

Learning Snacks

These courses are completely self-directed and designed to be completed in an hour or less.   Learning snacks focus on one topic, or one desired outcome.  They typically include a series of videos, along with worksheets you can use to make a plan to put the ideas into practice in your life.  In a nutshell, learning snacks are:

  • Completely self-directed
  • Single topic
  • One hour or less to complete

Deeper Dives 

These courses are like a series of learning snacks, with the added bonus of interactive elements -- like discussion boards or even include live check-in zoom meetups. Deeper Dives allow you more time to explore various aspects of a topic, and try out a variety of approaches to get you exactly what you need.  Most deep dives take place over one month, and are offered at different times throughout the year. In a nutshell, deeper dives are:

  • A blend of self-directed and group interactive
  • A broader look at a topic
  • One month long
  • Offered periodically

Master Classes

These courses are designed to give you everything you need to "master" the topic or skillset.  You'll work through the content at your own pace, but there will always be a recommended agenda to follow.  In a nutshell, a master class will be:

  • Self-directed
  • Multiple aspects to master a subject
  • At your own pace
