Welcome to today’s podcast episode! I’m here with the incredibly talented Michelle Yumiko Payne, a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry. With her Japanese and Aussie backgrounds, Michelle has built an impressive career spanning music, acting, hospitality, events management, producing, creative directing, and singer/songwriting. She’s a multitalented extraordinaire!

What sets Michelle apart is her one-of-a-kind approach to life. She’s driven by the fire in her belly and refuses to conform to anyone’s expectations other than her own. She’s mastered the art of taking control and playing the lead role in her life story, setting an example for all of us to follow.

Get ready for a massive dose of inspiration and insight as we delve into what truly matters to Michelle, the obstacles she’s faced, her views on happiness, the source of her relentless courage, and the exciting future that awaits her on this courageous journey.

And the icing on the cake, Michelle is my awesome youngest sister. An absolute rockstar!

Michelle’s wise words:

  • I’ve never sold my soul.
  • I’m still uncertain about so many things. But it’s my comfortable place. I don’t want to know what tomorrow brings.
  • I always live on my planet. This is my world. And I’m not going to let anyone tell me or define it, but me.
  • If I put pressure on me, I’m not going to enjoy what I have now. It’s about enjoying those moments, being present. Because if I keep pushing about the future, which you can’t even write the future, you don’t know if tomorrow is there. So, for today, let’s do today. And then we’ll think about tomorrow.
  • Happiness is one of the hardest things to find. Being sad and being depressed and angry is easy. To complain is easy. But to find true happiness is quite difficult. I feel like the definition of happiness is keeping true to who you are. Being true to yourself.
  • What’s stopping me? Myself. No one else is stopping me.
  • When you’ve got your hands in so many cookie jars, you can forget about you.
