Who is Michelle Poler?
Michelle Poler is a creative and passionate social entrepreneur, keynote speaker, fear facer, and branding strategist.
She is the Founder of Hello Fears, a social movement empowering millions to step outside the comfort zone and tap into their full potential.
Michelle’s life took a spiraling twist in 2015 when she decided to get out of her way and embark on a journey facing 100 fears in 100 days while sharing it with the world - a project that quickly became a viral phenomenon.
Since then, Michelle has taken the stage to inspire people around the world to step out of their comfort zone, and become the best version of themselves. She has been invited to speak at TEDx, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Netflix, Microsoft, P&G, Toyota, Coca-Cola, and many more, as well as schools, colleges and youth leadership organizations.
Her work has been featured on CBS, CNN, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, NBC and Daily Mail among many others.
Michelle is originally from Caracas, Venezuela and she holds a Masters in Branding from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Early on in her career she worked as an Art Director at Young & Rubicam for brands such as Hershey’s, Wendy’s, AT&T and Revlon.
Michelle and her husband (and full-time business partner), Adam, travel over 120 times per year. As they do, they record a Spanish-language podcast, Desde El Avión (From the Plane), sharing what it takes to build a business together and balance married life in the process.
You can follow Michelle on Instagram (@hellofears) as she bestows her impact across the world, choosing courage over comfort, and making everyone around her a little braver.
"The real enemy of success is not failure, it's comfort."
