In May of 2022, Michelle and Crista were roommates at a retreat on Necker Island, Sir Richard Branson's private island paradise in the British Virgin Islands, a stunning and unspoiled area of the Caribbean where flamingos and iguanas keep you company while you eat your breakfast. 

One week away changed Michelle and Crista and made a lasting impression that they both believe will stay with them forever. In Episode 76 of The Lean Out Your Business podcast they are sharing some of the biggest lessons they learned and how they are leveraging this experience to continue to bring more peace and impact to their businesses and their daily lives.
