Today I’m excited to welcome Michaela Guzy to The Quarter Life Comeback.

I first came across Michaela via a post of hers I saw on Facebook. Needless to say, I had to get her on the show.

Michaela was working in the publishing industry in New York but still not feeling fulfilled. While externally she was living a life many people dream of, internally she knew she wanted something different from life.

Not knowing how things would turn out, Michaela decided to leave her job and go her own way. She has since gone on to create the enormously popular OhThePeopleYouMeet (whose content is shared on some of the biggest sites in the world), worked on amazing projects and met some inspiring people along the way.

Our conversation went on a little longer than usual, so I decided to split the interview into two parts. Make sure you check out part 2 next week!
