Happiness can only be achieved through the training of the mind.
— The Dalai Lama

Once you start training your mind for happiness, your life changes - in the best way possible. 

Every single thing I wanted and worked for in the past few years has become a reality.

Every single thing.

Think about what you truly want in your life...

Maybe it's having $1,000,000 in the bank...

Maybe it's having an amazing family...

Maybe it's traveling around the world in style...

Maybe it's your dream house...

Maybe it's to be successful...

Maybe it's to be your own boss...

...why do you want any of that?


Michelle has helped me re-energize my spirit for life. She has reminded me to elevate above the noise and to appreciate the great things that are happening around me and to CELEBRATE them.

Michelle puts the moment first. I’ve been inspired to gives less fucks, be more of myself, and seek happiness & the thrill in all of life’s moments.

Someone once told me that it was like a spa experience being around Michelle Wax and I have got to say, I wholeheartedly agree. Since meeting Michelle, I have been inspired to try new things, take risks and live my life! I will often watch her Wax Life videos when I am feeling down or not worthy of the things that I want in life. She is a truly amazing human being and I feel blessed to know her!

Vibrant, optimistic, and endurance are words that come to mind when I think of Michelle. She never waivers in these qualities and is able to bring people who surround her up to her level. After spending 1 day rehearsing in front of her, I pitched my company on a stage in front of 400 people and won 1st place! That’s the kind of stuff that happens when you are around Michelle Wax.
— Berlin Kelly
Michelle has been my motivator! Without her, I would have never started writing and selling my book. It’s even making money on Amazon! Not a bestseller (yet!) but I did it! My dream came true!
— Elizabeth Gray
Michelle has always been a positive influence in my life, always upbeat and sends positive thoughts and videos at random times haha :) She’s living life to the fullest which rubs off on me as well! Life is too short so gotta live it, that’s why I am living the beach life in Cali :)
— Athena Li
Michelle commits herself wholeheartedly to anything she puts her mind to.
Michelle is very go with the flow. I believe that’s what’s made her able to learn, grow, and scale her businesses in quick time with no experience. Michelle’s go-with-the-flow attitude makes it so she’s typically able to set aside any frustrations/roadblocks/setbacks and stay focused on moving forward. Michelle is amazing and a weirdo at the same time.. She inspires me everyday and I think that anyone would be lucky to have her in their life as a mentor and friend.
— Elise Beck
Once Michelle makes a decision, she’s puts everything she has into it and never looks back. This applies to her old job as an account manager, her cookie business, her commercial kitchen space, her relationships or what she does in her free time. Each thing is done at 110% and each thing is successful. Even if she moves on to another job, or role or endeavor she ensures that what she left is successful and sufficient.
Some would say she is overly positive and exponentially motivated, but I think it is that she always asks herself what is the point of doing something if you don’t do it all the way. There is no one better to be at the helm of any initiative then Michelle Wax.
— Rebecca Stone
Michelle is one of the best friends you could ask for! She’s down for all crazy wild ideas, will do a lot for people just to encourage and make an impact on their lives! She’s been there for me through ups and downs, traveled to places we could only dream of! Can’t ask for a better friend to have!
