In episode #44 Mel and Trish sit down with Trish’s good friend Michelle Cross, aka Roona, to chat about her career and the value of taking a risk.
Michell was a busy, full-time working mother with a long career in the very stable and secure institution of teaching and educating when she hit a crossroads. Feeling unfulfilled, she put her career and financial stability on the line, trusted her instinct and co-founded The Performers Studio.
At the time, The Performers Studio was in response to the need for quality education and training for emerging artists to be industry-ready professionals.
Basically, Michelle identified a gap in the market and, never one to sit still and just think about things, took action, and brought about major change – for herself, her family and the many students who have passed through its doors.
However Michelle’s story doesn’t end there. Like many remarkable 50ishers, she continues to reinvent herself and thrive in the process.
