From fail-proofing your routines, to clarifying your goals, and finally breaking free from the traps of distraction, Michelle uncovers a powerful combination of scientific facts, health truths, and laughable human behaviours that when implemented, will set you apart from the average ambitious individual and help you solve your own personal formula for success in profound ways.
