Just for a moment be really honest with yourself. Lately have you found yourself…
I get it. Almost ten years ago this was my life.
My name is Michelle McQuaid and these days I’m a best-selling author, workplace wellbeing teacher and playful change activator.
I help people find the confidence, energy and happiness to consistently thrive.
But my life wasn’t always like this. Back in 2007, despite living in New York with my beautiful family, having a good job that paid me more money than I could spend, and being in good health… each day it was becoming harder and harder to find the energy to drag myself into work.
The constant stress to prove myself in a job that had no real sense of purpose was slowly but surely draining away my confidence, my energy and my happiness. Despite the creeping sense of greyness blanketing my life, I couldn’t just quit. I needed the money to support my family and jobs at my level were hard to find.
I felt stuck and helpless.
So, as I lay there in bed one morning wondering if perhaps this was just how life is, I couldn’t help but wonder: “If I started truly showing up and shining at what mattered most to me what might my life and the world around me actually look like?”
A year later this question led me to a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology, with the field’s founder Professor Martin Seligman, to discover what science was uncovering about the secrets of human flourishing. What I learned finally made it possible to create the kind of personal and professional success that was beyond my wildest dreams.
Unfortunately, most of us have no idea what our strengths actually are.
You see, our brains are wired with a natural “negativity bias” that makes us exceptional at spotting our weaknesses. As a result we spend most of our time trying “fix” ourselves instead of focusing on developing what we’re good at.
And even when we finally figure out what our strengths are, very few of us seem able to figure out how to consistently use them in our jobs. While we might manage to act differently for a couple of days or even a week, eventually we go back to the way we’re used to doing things.
It takes deliberate effort and the right strategy to really make developing your strengths work.
Designed specifically for busy people who don’t have time for “one more thing”, you’ll have everything you need to discover your strengths, put them to work and finally create the career and life you want.
But don’t just take my word for it…
What Are Strengths
How You Work At Your Best
What You Do Best
Make Your Work Flow
Create A Strengths-Fueled Future
Turning Your Hopes Into Reality
The Busy-Proof Way To Lasting Change
Cultivating Grit For Long Term Success
The Most Overlooked Factor For Success
In addition to the three core learning modules, you’ll also receive free access to advanced training that can take your strengths-based approach to a whole new level at work. They include…
What we discovered was that when online courses are well designed, they are an incredibly effective, easy, enjoyable and affordable way to access great teachers. So we’ve carefully structured Show Up, Shine & Succeed to do just that – and if it doesn’t we’ll gladly refund your enrollment.
Here’s how it works:
Each module is broken into three bite-sized 15-minute videos that you can slot into your schedule whenever it’s convenient for you (on your commute, during your lunch break, or in spare moments here and there throughout the day).
For those who prefer listening or reading, downloadable audio files and PDF transcripts are also available. Just download them to your computer, smart phone or tablet and you’re set to go.
To help you immediately apply what you’re learning, we provide play sheets with simple exercises and practical tips to make it easy to integrate these approaches into even the busiest – or most challenging – life.
You’re supported through every step with group coaching calls – with me – to answers any questions you have, fine-tune your approaches and celebrate your success.
A new module is released every two weeks so you never feel overwhelmed or struggling to keep up. Best of all you have lifetime access, so you never have to worry about “falling behind”. Once the materials have been released you can set your own pace and revisit ideas, as you need to.
Or, you can enrol in Show Up, Shine & Succeed for just $897 Australian dollars. This is the last time I will be offering this course at such an incredibly affordable price – don’t miss out.

Yes. You can test drive two Show Up, Shine & Succeed modules, 100% risk free.
It’s our heartfelt hope to help you bring out the best in yourself. If you don’t feel the content or delivery style is working for you than we’ll happily refund 100% of your money.
Just complete the first two modules… go through the training, do the work, and join the coaching calls. If you’re not seeing a real difference in your work from developing your strengths then let us know, send us what you’ve tried and we’ll immediately refund your money. No questions asked.
If you’re willing to learn new ideas and take action, then you’ll benefit from this program.
However, if you’re not willing to play, experiment, and implement new ideas and habits then this program probably isn’t right for you. I’ll give you all the tips and strategies you need, but they’ll mean nothing if you don’t apply them. You must be willing to do the work to get the most out from the knowledge, tools and support we’ll give you.
I truly believe that the future of the world relies on each of us doing just a little bit more of what we do best each day. It’s my heartfelt hope that you’ll join me and enrol now.
If you’re self employed or run your own business, then you have a lot to gain from learning how to effectively use your strengths.
Now, it’s quite likely that you’re already passionate about your work. You love the product or service that you’re providing.
But the thing about being an entrepreneur is that you can’t just do the tasks you’re “passionate” about (or at least not when you’re starting out). There’s all those other “details” that you have to take care of.
For example, imagine if your primary work is creatively focused (such as writing or designing). There are still other “non-creative” tasks to take care of… managing your financial accounts… doing marketing and sales… and more.
What if you could love those tasks… just as much as you love your main work?
That’s what Show Up, Shine & Succeed will help you with. It’s designed to help you bring your strengths into EVERYTHING you do.
Using a private members’ portal, you’ll get lifetime access to all the lessons, playbooks, and bonuses.
You can watch the videos right there in your web browser just as you would with most other online videos (like YouTube or Netflix).
Or you can download them as video, audio, or transcripts that you can take with you anywhere on your phone, tablet, or laptop.
(Note, you’ll get all the login details to the members’ portal shortly after you join.)
First, it’s fantastic if you have questions. For that means you’re really thinking critically about how to apply the training to your own life.
I’ve seen from my years of experience teaching the material that the ones who engage and experiment with the material have the most success.
Second, we’ve included group coaching calls for you to ask questions!
So as you’re going through the training, just make a note of your question and bring it to the call. I’m there to provide personal and direct coaching to ensure you have the confidence and clarity to start using your strengths (and succeeding with them).
The program is designed specifically for busy people who don’t have time for “one more thing”.
The modules are broken into bite-sized 15 minute videos that you can slot into your schedule whenever it’s convenient for you (on your commute, during your lunch break, or in spare moments here and there throughout the day).
For those who prefer listening or reading, downloadable audio files and PDF transcriptions are also available.
Both of these two tests are solid. They’re backed by decades of scientific research. And they will give you a helpful picture of your unique strengths and talents.
In fact, Show Up, Shine & Succeed uses both of these tests in the training material.
However, here’s the thing that I’ve noticed in teaching tens of thousands of people how to use their strengths…
Besides knowing your strengths… you also need to be able to apply them in your life. And, you need to be able to do that in a way that sticks.
For example, one VIA strength is love. And one from the Gallup Strength Finder is woo.
So if you’re going to use woo and love at work, you want to make sure that you’re doing it in the right way, or they’re the kind of strengths you could be fired for.
That’s where Show Up, Shine & Succeed comes in. It includes strategies and exercises that help you practically take your test results and make them a part of your day to day life.
