I recently flew to Amsterdam for one night to meet with over 20 SOMBA participants. One of the stops on Michelle Obama’s tour for her book Becoming was being held there in the Ziggo Dome with over 15,000 fans, and I simply could not pass up the opportunity to see the former US First Lady in person.
In this episode, I share 8 lessons from attending Michelle Obama’s book tour. I discuss how my values and beliefs on raising children align with Michelle Obama’s and why entrepreneurs need to focus on their health and wellness. As well as sharing how Michelle has inspired me to let go of perfectionism and ask for help. I also share the mantra Michelle used as First Lady when faced with political attacks and why I’ve decided to adopt this mantra when reacting to comments and feedback online.“You can have it all. But you need to ask for help - or hire help.” - Sigrun
