In this episode, I interview Michelle Prince, a best-selling author, motivational speaker, CEO, and Founder of Performance Publishing Group, a “partner” publishing company of Michelle Prince, helping leaders impact the world, using the strengths and talents already within them to create an extraordinary life and exponentially grow their business.

Driven by her passion, Michelle started a business in 2009 that helps people communicate their stories through publishing and speaking. She also owned a publishing company, running the two businesses together to provide top-quality, comprehensive book publishing services for soon-to-be authors. Michelle helped thousands of professionals around the world become published authors through her consulting, courses, seminars, and done-for-you publishing services.

Michelle says the hardest thing in growing a small business is evaluating what's working and what's not working and letting go of something that you've put a lot of effort in. However, she also stated that issues are always part of business and what’s important is how you deal with them.
