Description


Incarceration to Executive

Dr. Michelle Shaivitz shares her journey in her new book, Broken is a Gift. Not just a tale of personal triumph, Broken is a Gift gives readers a blueprint for realizing their own potential. Part personal narrative, part self-help, this book is both engaging and enlightening.

Anyone who has ever struggled with just existing from one day to the next will identify with Michelle's personal story. With a beautiful family, nice house, good job and all the things that come with that, Michelle was silently struggling. An alcohol addiction pushed Michelle to rock bottom and landed her in jail.

During her struggles and her journey, Michelle realized, sitting in the middle of her cold jail cell that being broken was a gift because it meant she could rebuild herself however she wanted. Today, Michelle leads a local nonprofit organization, appears as a speaker, and provides personal coaching to people interested in living a life they don't want to get away from.

After realizing that "You cannot be the captain of your ship if you are also the anchor that is weighing you down," Dr. Shaivitz has made a point of focusing on solutions for change, not just the problems.
