The Wax Life uncovers how to use the science of our brains’ hardwiring to your advantage,

propelling you to the next level of happiness in life.

Are you ready? Click the video below to begin.

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. 

It’s not our fault that…

Our brains’ hardwiring doesn’t lend itself to natural happiness.

It’s not our fault that our default setting is a state of high alert, of stress, of uncertainty, of self doubt.

It’s just the way our brains were wired in our primal days (200,000 years ago), and our wiring has not changed since.

(for more on this topic, watch this video)

But we can train our minds out of of this default state.

And that’s where the magic begins.


The Wax Life is focused on sharing this science in multiple forms, through speaking events, documentaries, and other media. We are passionate about helping you implement extremely simple mental techniques that will drive you to a new level and bring lasting happiness in your life, regardless of outside people or circumstances.

We had the highest attendance of all of our entrepreneurship events when Michelle visited campus. The event was really interesting; Michelle spoke about actionable ways to take control of your life and seek happiness along your career path. Michelle was extremely helpful and passionate about speaking to women in business. We hope to have her back again!

Michelle Wax was truly an insightful speaker! In the current high-stress and fast-paced climate associated with universities, Michelle provided students with beneficial steps toward achieving happiness. Rather than the typical “strictly business” sort of events that we host, this event focused on connecting with the students and giving them a unique perspective from an accomplished woman in business.

Michelle conveyed an energetic zest for life in her speaking that translated into a valuable experience for our members. Having her come and speak to our members again would be an honor!
— Neet K, University of Texas at Austin
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, CEO of Proud Pour
Michelle Wax was a fabulous speaker at the University of Delaware’s Horn Entrepreneurship Center! She is one of the best speakers I have seen at Free Lunch Friday, and I have been attending for two and a half years now.

I learned so many new concepts and mindset tips that blew my mind in the 30 minutes than I do some weeks in college. I heard nothing but positive reviews from the students in attendance, and we were talking about some of the new concepts she brought up for several days after the event.

Michelle is very well-spoken and brought more than one new, mind-blowing concept to her talk that greatly impacted me personally and I’m sure other students in the crowd as well.

We were so thrilled to have Michelle speak! Our members loved to hear about her story and how she got to the point where she is today.

Michelle is so easily approachable, knowledgeable, and relate-able.

Something that our members really took away from the event was her positivity, and how she utilizes this in her everyday life. She even inspired some of our members begin tracking their thoughts each day, to help inspire productive and positive thoughts.
— Isabel H., Executive Board of Collegiate Entrepreneurs Org at Bryant University

Michelle was very engaging and it showed based on audience participation. Her insight was very eye opening and I am looking forward to trying some of her techniques. She was very prepared and you could tell that she was very passionate about her work. My members gave great feedback on the event — I would highly recommend to a friend to attend Michelle’s speech!
— Jodi S. Horn Entrepreneurship Center, University of Delware
We really liked the science behind Michelle’s research, and how we took away real tools that we could implement immediately to make our lives more positive. The event was really great! We would definitely recommend Michelle.
— Sophia M., President of Women in Business Club at Boston College

Michelle is a phenomenal communicator with energy that you can’t help but feel excited around. She created an atmosphere that brought the best out of me.

The American Happiness interview was truly amazing. The interview felt like a conversation with a best friend. Really enjoyed being apart of this project!
— Darrel D. Frater, Startup Advisor
The event went very well. The member’s enjoyed the presentation, and I believe that it was something very beneficial for them to hear. Midshipman live in a constant state of high stress and to hear that happiness is the greatest form of success, is very beneficial to their mentality. I found the perspective was unique and the diversity of thought was a valued experience. I would definitely have her come and speak again.
— Andrew W., Naval Academy
Everyone loved the event! It was so nice to have a different type of speaking event because usually for our club we have a lot of speakers who nail down things we have to do in order to get jobs, get our foot in the door etc. and this was more of a personal touch for our members. We really thought it was great and would definitely recommend Michelle!!!
— Abigail S., President of Women in Business Club at Providence College
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.
— Michelle Piantedosi, Manager at Converse
Michelle has an uncanny ability to make you feel comfortable enough to be yourself yet pushes the boundary to get you out of your comfort zone. I think this is a tremendous skill to have while interviewing so many different personalities and trying to grab unique insights and anecdotes from everyone with very little overlap. Can’t wait for the finished product.
— Vipin Shri, WeWork
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, Author
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. She’s typically able to set aside any frustrations, roadblocks, or setbacks and stay focused on moving forward.

Michelle is amazing. 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, Product Marketing Manager at Hubspot
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!
— Phoebe N. Cryan, Blue Cross Blue Shield
