The Ugly Cry Society- Join Us!

We've all been there. Stressed, puffy eyes or holding it all in with pursed lips.  Every weekend we wipe away the virtual tears with organic and curated research, affirmations, video and whatnot to celebrate our sanity.

(You'll get the 9-point checklist immediately as a start) 

"Your self-worth & net-worth are transforming all of the time so work with them versus against them"

What Others Say


Michele Paiva has been an inspiration, a selfless confidant and extremely professional.  She has completely turned my life around, and the lives of so many others. She has given me the drive to live my life with a new approach and direction, has talked to me to show me that all things are possible and all goals are reachable.  A true inspiration.

With Michele, you can learn to release what no longer serves you, and you can lock-in to your personal and wellness career purpose.
Michele brings an unconventional approach to business which helps you to learn about the concepts and framework for real career and business success. She is conversational and direct, down-to-Earth and approachable."

Michele Paiva

My area of speciality is finance therapy.  As a finance therapist, my work involves helping you through trauma and stress, as well as helping you see your self-value and improve your relationship with money, and ability to create a lifestyle that you deserve.

In my 30 years of experience in helping others through stress, anxiety and trauma, I've learned that for me, the most direct route to happiness for my clients, is empowerment through recognizing self-value.

Some of my advanced training includes certification as a financial education specialist, lifestyle and mindfulness, meditation and trauma recovery, through the Zur Institute, Harvard Medical School and the Benson Henry Institute and Massachusetts General Hospital.
