And more with Michelle Money…


On Sunday, we’ll find you wearing:

On a typical Sunday, you will find me in yoga gear and flip flops with not a drop of makeup! There is also a good chance I haven’t showered.

What’s the most exciting thing in your life right now:



My Money Talks group! I love connecting with women who want to look and feel amazing! It’s wonderful being able to utilize Facebook Live because it helps me to connect with people in a much more real and authentic way. I love seeing the progress that these women make throughout my courses, and how it affects their confidence and quality of life. It is remarkable to watch! 

One piece of advice you would give your 18­ year ­old self:

Let go of worrying about what anyone thinks of you. Putting more effort into pleasing others than we do into listening to our own guidance is what keeps us from actually living. I am so glad I learned this important lesson sooner rather than later! 

Your most recent culinary discovery and obsession:

My most recent culinary obsession has been the spiralizer! I love to spiralize my zucchini and squash for a healthy substitute for pasta.

Your motto in life:

My motto in life is defined by my last name:

Mind your own business

Own your truth

Never abandon your inner voice

Every single thought matters

You choose happiness

These truths are what I strive to live by every single day. It is also the core of my message in all of my online training classes. I believe that these principals are what bring true happiness to my life, and at the end of the day, happiness is what we all want. 

Skincare product you can’t live without (and why):

I currently can’t live without Crude Skincare. Crude uses the oil cleansing method that everyone is raving over these days. It has seriously changed my skin! The bloom oil is my recent obsession. It is all I use for cleanser and moisturizer! Here’s a tip, use the code “MONEY20” on their site for a 20% discount! 

At 9 am each day, you are:

Hosting a live talk show called Good Things Utah on ABC4. It is a daily talk show where two of my best friends and I talk about everything from hot topics, current trends, controversial issues, as well as lifestyle segments that include cooking, crafting, community awareness, etc. It is literally the best hour of my day and I have so much fun with it!

The trend you hope never goes out of style:

Skinny jeans! Remember when they first became hot? I remember thinking “OMG! This is so not cool!” And now I’m like “PLEASE NEVER LEAVE ME!” 

Where does your credit card get the most use:

My credit card gets the most use at the liquor store! But let me explain myself… I’m trying to cut back on drinking so much wine! Instead of going to the store and stocking up, I only let myself buy one bottle at a time. This way it is a total inconvenience to go purchase it, and it forces me to really decide if I want it! Keep in mind that here in Utah you can only purchase wine at the liquor store. Annoying, yet also good for helping me stay balanced! My go to wine these days has been a red blend called Apothic.

What is the best gift you’ve ever received:

The best gift I have ever received was actually given to me by my Money Talks girls. They put together two books for me as keepsakes. One includes all of the before and after photos of the 300 women who took my first ever online makeup course! It is AMAZING how much they all transformed their look into a polished and fresh version of themselves! The other book was filled with photos of our get-togethers, along with messages to me about how I have impacted their lives, what they learned from me, and what they love about me! It was absolutely moving, to say the least, and incredibly humbling. Without a doubt, it is the best gift I have ever received!
