Smart Girl Michelle is a Michigan native originally from Detroit, Michigan. Michelle currently resides in Rochester Hills, Michigan and is a mother of two, grandmother of one, and also a businesswoman.
She recently coined her business Lovelogical – relaunched in 2018.
The mission of Lovelogical is to, “Promote and enhance non-biological families.” Terms such as, ‘blended families’ and ‘extended families’ can have negative connotations. The goal with Lovelogical, however, “Is a positive term and concept that embrace special non-biological family relationships. With the coined reference, “DNA NOT REQUIRED.”
We sat down with Michelle to discuss some her trial and tribulations, mantras, strong points, and what it means to be a “smart girl” to her.
I think that I came into this world fighting. I came into this world trying to figure out who I was and determined to just persevere through anything, says Anderson.
Growing up Michelle ’s mother had foster children, ran daycare, and helped take care of peoples’ pets as well. Stating that her mother was “extremely maternal” to everybody. Sharing that her maternal-like spirit she has now stemmed from her mom.
What has life taught you?
Life has taught me that you have to keep going, that things happen. You’re going to have rough roads and you’re going to have smooth roads. Life has taught me that we are all just roots and we are all just growth in our own trees. And I love my life and I am going to persevere.
What would your advice be to young girls that might be struggling right now, whether it be financially, academically or even both?
My advice for them would be to find a mentor. Find a mentor who is going to help them strengthen their weaknesses.
What do you do to overcome some of life’s obstacles?
I pray I meditate, I cry – to relieve myself of some of the stress that’s inside. I go to the water and I can sit in silence and it’s like the water sometimes heals me. I find ways to regenerate myself and nature regenerates me. And prayer regenerates me because it helps me to regenerate my spirit. So, I find a way to regenerate.
What makes a ‘Smart Girl’ to you?
What makes a smart girl to me is a woman who is well rounded. Someone who is willing to laugh at themselves, laugh hat their mistakes, learn above the comprehension that many others are not willing to learn, and willing to reach out to others.
Michelle ’s life motto is,
To accept who you are and keep moving forward towards your dreams.
