My interview with Michelle Butts
Here is what I knew of Michelle before we had our 30 minute Chit Chat on Instagram.
She and I met going through our Health Coaching Certification class. She joined me in one of my Fitness Challenge Groups after experiencing a bad injury. After nursing herself back to health doing Yoga, PIYO and eating right she was ready to change the world with her quirky self.
She runs her holistic health coaching business and teaches local classes.
One of my favorite in-person moments with Michelle was when she spent a day out here in Los Angeles helping me spend my birthday exploring the sites. She even bought me some sort of whisky shot on Hollywood Blvd.
She is one of my absolute favorite people on the planet and that is why I chose her to kick off my new Project Curiosity Episode #1
Here are the fun insightful questions I asked Michelle after getting through a handful of technical difficulties.
? What does the word Curious mean to you?
Curious George – Michelle had a dog who’s name was George and he used to act like the fictional Character Curious George. She said he used to come home in the back of a “cop car”. So the little monkey was super curious. I love this trigger questions because you never know what comes to people’s mind!
? I know you’re a Vegan. What made you choose to this path?
Originally, Michelle chose this path for healing and health reasons. The more she dug into Veganism and Vegan products she started to see the environmental reasons for being vegan. One particular reason, she is a huge Beagle lover and when she found out that Beagles were used for testing makeup her quest for being Vegan was a global reason.
? What’s your favorite social media platform and why?
Michelle loves Instagram because it brings her back to her youth and her love for photography. She can have fun with it and loves to play with filters. So for her the fun factor is what seals the deal!
? What was the last video game you played and enjoyed?
Michelle laughed and said she used to be a big time gamer back in the day. Call of Duty, you name it, but its been a while. Her last go at it with a video game was a dance game on the Xbox with her nephew. Dancing to the song to Nightmare before Christmas.
? Ugg boots or Sandals?
She didn’t take too long to jump in and say Flip Flops in a heart beat. She is even known to wear her big fluffy socks with her flip flops. No shame in her game as she stated.
? I know you’re a dog lover, so for those who don’t have a dog, what would you say to them about why YOUR dogs are RAD?
Michelle has a true love for Westies. Each of hers has their own personality. They all keep her entertained including her dog with the underbite. Here are their names Rigby (1 floppy ear), ? Maxwell (Other Twin Terror), and Hercules (Captain Underbite!) It is the Joy they bring and the variety of laughs and cuddles they bring that make her dogs TOP DOG (yes totally cheeseball on my own part)
? You injured yourself a while back, what is the best advice you could give someone who just injured themselves and are down for the count?
Michelle said GRACE – Be kind to yourself. There is a difference between pushing yourself too hard and pushing yourself to heal. It can be incredibly frustrating as she knows too well, spending 6 months in a wheel chair. But her advice is to be kind to yourself and give yourself a BREAK! (no pun intended!)
