Michelle Y. Talbert is a recovering attorney and relationship marketer who uses digital and social media to provide tools and resources such as podcasts, videos, live events, and written publications to empower women in business.
She has written for major publications and is a sought-after presenter and speaker on topics related to relationship marketing and networking in business. She is an expert tribe builder and has been featured in Forbes, The Washington Post and other major publications.
After attending community college part-time for 10 years, while working as a secretary by day as a divorced single mom, she transferred to Cornell University and then went on to receive her law degree from the University of Pennsylvania with a Business Certificate from Wharton. Michelle left the full-time practice of law in 2012 to explore all things blog, podcast and social media-related.
In January 2020 Michelle opened the doors to Her Power Space, a Woman forward, Men welcoming™ boutique coworking space, business event venue and podcast studio near Fort Lauderdale, FL. In spring 2020, in response to the devastating impact of COVID-19 on the small business community, Michelle launched the No Small Business Left Behind [Virtual] Summit series as a resource for business owners to get information, resources and forge connections with others to ensure their survival.
The Summit has expanded to monthly Unvendor Fairs showcasing local women-owned businesses both at Her Power Space and simultaneously broadcast online in a virtual shopping experience. Her motto is #weallwin.
