Transformation , which is hard to believe. But now she gets the roles she likes.
From a slender model to a complete businesswoman
They say that money loves silence, but not in the case of Monet ... An eccentric businesswoman regularly flashes on the pages of the tabloids and freely shares the details of her personal life. Michelle is confident that she can help other women with her example, because she was able to make an impressive career without any prerequisites for that.
The girl grew up in a disadvantaged area of Glasgow, at the age of 15 she dropped out of school and after her father's illness moved to a modeling business to help a family out of poverty. The stately and strong-willed Michelle could become a catwalk star, but at 19 she married Michael Monet and gave birth to a daughter. The couple later had two more children. The energetic girl was not satisfied with the role of a housewife, so she applied for a local brewery and in just a couple of years grew up to the position of marketing director.
After being fired, Monet thought about her own business, but for a long time could not decide on the direction. The decision came unexpectedly. During dinner at a restaurant, the woman was uncomfortable with the uncomfortable bra all evening and realized that she could improve the construction. This insight became a harbinger of the creation of the world famous brand of underwear Ultimo.
A woman has invested in several years all forces and means to develop business. Chronic lack of sleep, constant stress, unbalanced and irregular nutrition - all of Michelle's problems have left their mark. By the time Monet's company achieved great commercial success, nothing reminded of the model's past of its owner. The woman at one point weighed almost 114 kg and felt uncomfortable next to slender models at the shows, but her husband convinced Michelle that everything was in order and prevented her attempts to lose weight.
