She brought her amazing energy to the event and lead our group through a goal visualization exercise which the group really enjoyed! I definitely recommend American Happiness for any group seeking a fun, interactive, and self-reflective moment for their events or gatherings."

“Happiness Hour is a great way for students to put down their phones and get talking! Michelle had a fantastic way of engaging our students in small groups and one on one conversations that helped our students connect during their first few days on campus. Michelle’s content was fun and engaging and she made it very easy for us to provide a great workshop during Welcome Weekend!”

We had the highest attendance of all of our entrepreneurship events when Michelle visited campus. The event was really interesting; Michelle spoke about actionable ways to take control of your life and seek happiness along your career path. Michelle was extremely helpful and passionate about speaking to women in business. We hope to have her back again!

Michelle Wax was truly an insightful speaker! In the current high-stress and fast-paced climate associated with universities, Michelle provided students with beneficial steps toward achieving happiness.
Rather than the typical “strictly business” sort of events that we host, this event focused on connecting with the students and giving them a unique perspective from an accomplished woman in business. Michelle conveyed an energetic zest for life in her speaking that translated into a valuable experience for our members. Having her come and speak to our members again would be an honor!
— Neet K. University of Texas at Austin
We were so thrilled to have Michelle speak! Our members loved to hear about her story and how she got to the point where she is today.

Michelle is so easily approachable, knowledgeable, and relate-able.

Something that our members really took away from the event was her positivity, and how she utilizes this in her everyday life. She even inspired some of our members begin tracking their thoughts each day, to help inspire productive and positive thoughts.
— Isabel H. Bryant University
Vibrant, optimistic, and endurance are words that come to mind when I think of Michelle. She never waivers in these qualities and is able to bring people who surround her up to her level.

After spending 1 day rehearsing in front of her, I pitched my company on a stage in front of 400 people and won 1st place! That’s the kind of stuff that happens when you are around Michelle Wax.
— Berlin Kelly, CEO of Proud Pour
We really liked the science behind Michelle’s research, and how we took away real tools that we could implement immediately to make our lives more positive. The event was really great! We would definitely recommend Michelle.
— Sophia M. Boston College
Michelle has been my motivator! Without her, I would have never started writing and selling my book. It’s even making money on Amazon! Not a bestseller (yet!) but I did it! My dream came true!
— Elizabeth Gray, Author
Everyone loved the event! It was so nice to have a different type of speaking event because usually for our club we have a lot of speakers who nail down things we have to do in order to get jobs, get our foot in the door etc. and this was more of a personal touch for our members. We really thought it was great and would definitely recommend Michelle!!!
— Abigail S. Providence College

Michelle commits herself wholeheartedly to
anything she puts her mind to.

Michelle is very go with the flow. I believe that’s what’s made her able to learn, grow, and scale her businesses in quick time with no experience. She’s typically able to set aside any frustrations, roadblocks, or setbacks and stay focused on moving forward.

Michelle is amazing. She inspires me everyday and I think that anyone would be lucky to have her in their life as a mentor and friend.
— Elise Beck, Product Marketing Manager at Hubspot
Someone once told me that it was like a spa experience being around Michelle Wax and I have got to say, I wholeheartedly agree.

Since meeting Michelle, I have been inspired to try new things, take risks and live my life!

I will often watch her Wax Life videos when I am feeling down or not worthy of the things that I want in life. She is a truly amazing human being and I feel blessed to know her!
