Today we’d like to introduce you to Michelle Winder.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I love people and have always gone out of my way to bring outcasts into my ‘cool kid’ clique. Truth is, I had been a victim multiple times by the age of 21 and I had a lot of mindset issues due to fear. I have a keen ability to clearly see mindset issues in others.
One day, holding my infant daughter at my son’s karate class, I suddenly realized it was dangerous to live in fear. That night, I enrolled in self defense, went on to earn my 3rd degree Black Belt, designed a ‘Practical’ Self Defense Seminar, and became a victim’s advocate, showing people how to live the abundant life they were designed for.
After working with people all over the world, I realized that most people are stalled in their lives, living way below their potential. To compensate, they watch other’s lives, living vicariously through them, while their own precious life slips by.
After a near death experience, I launched Rock YOUR Red Carpet, showing people how to live fully so they can make the most of their own stage. I demonstrate how to walk through the challenges we all face, head on, without fear so YOU are the LEAD on YOUR Stage in Life- I’ll show you how you can Rock YOUR Red Carpet!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has been one rocky road getting to where I am, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I have been physically assaulted multiple times, by multiple offenders. When I was 21, I was attacked by a 6’4″ 320 pound Marine, and God, literally, rescued me. It’s an amazing, life-changing story which eventually leads me to do research on the mindset of victims as well as predators. I’ve discovered a treasure of truth that enables me to change lives in a fairly short period of time.
As a middle child of 5, I’m a natural peace-maker. Conflict makes my world spin yet I often end up in the middle of the craziest schemes! God truly has a sense of humor. I’ve found myself right in the midst of huge conflicts that should have had nothing to do with me! They’ve included other’s relationships and even large corporations and churches. Looking back, I realize that these battles also revolve around mindset issues, such as fear and jealousy.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Rock YOUR Red Carpet – what should we know?
In 2017, I founded Rock YOUR Red Carpet as a platform for people, mainly empty-nesters, to identify and live an abundant life. In working with people & businesses for 22 years, I often see the amazing things that others are doing and wonder if there’s more that I can do. As humans, we tend to watch others as our own valuable lives slip by. Have you, the reader, ever watched and felt like you were meant for more?
Enter: Rock YOUR Red Carpet. God’s word says that each of us is born with a plan and a purpose. Yet, statistics say that 97% of people end their lives with regrets. My gift and passion is helping you identify your own stage & showing you how to win big so you finish your race with no regrets. After 90 days in our program, you can physically rock YOUR red carpet. Photos, lights and all. Because YOU are the LEAD on YOUR stage.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Truly loving people is absolutely the basis for my success. You’ve probably heard the adage: “No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care.” I’m not sure who said that- but it’s SO true! I genuinely care about people and truly want EVERYONE I meet to live a joyous, fulfilled life.
It seems crazy to me that we’re all so competitive! Sure, a little competition might be good, but we, especially in America, tend to put others down in order to lift ourselves up. That just doesn’t make any sense to me. Imagine if we all encouraged each other to be whom God intended us to be. Our entire world would be different. So many huge issues arise from bitterness and envy and jealousy. My aim is to see people be the best possible version of themselves and to encourage everyone around them to do the same. Can you imagine?
I’ve authored quite a few books, including my newest, “Rock YOUR Red Carpet, which contains specific strategies to follow along with my coaching & allows me to help those who can’t afford my program. But, I’m currently working on “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Joy – (because happiness is fleeting)” which I pray will get people to think along these lines.
I’ve worked with hundreds of victims over the years as a first responder and I’ve realized the difference between a victim mentality and a victor is simply a mindset. Victims focus on the past, whereas victors look ahead, forgetting the past. We all have a choice. My strategy involves helping victims choose the victorious life.
