Although Michelle built her massive following from youtube, she stopped creating videos after 10 years of massive success. Leaving the career you built can seem crazy to some, but that's one of the many things that inspires us about Michelle Phan-For Maria it was TV, for Michelle it was YouTube- and we hope others are inspired by Michelle's story and start making decisions on what’s right for them as opposed to what pleases others.

Maria met Wendy at this little, organic cafe in Connecticut where she told Maria how listening to our podcast, #BetterTogetherWithMaria helped her to avert major surgeries and to navigate what seemed like a hopeless health crisis.
