We had the good fortune of connecting with Michele Liggett and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Michele, what habits do you feel helped you succeed?
I am obsessed with habits and routines!! I have routines for everything from workouts to skin care. My morning routine is non-negotiable – it helps me get grounded and includes: celery juice, meditating, stretching, a healthy smoothie and CBD. For me, the consistency of these daily habits (plus many more!) keep me balanced and feeling my best so I can focus on moving my business forward.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am proud to say that I have been an elementary school teacher for 24 years! My teaching career has been rewarding, as well as, extremely stressful and challenging! Throughout my years as a teacher, I have been constantly searching for ways to manage daily stress and anxiety. I began with practicing yoga and meditation -which sparked the beginning of my wellness journey! I continued with eating healthier, journaling and then discovered CBD!! Incorporating CBD into my daily routine was life changing. The level of balance, calm, patience and ability to sleep was amazing. I knew I had to share it with everyone! Through my strong desire to help other people feel better – Trudevata was born!!

As I started my CBD oil wellness business, I discovered the importance of being consistent, persistent, and patient – all skills I use as a teacher! I stay consistent by following through with my daily wellness routines and systems for my business. Persistence is an absolute must! Not everyday is going to be easy – but I stay focused and optimistic so I can push through setbacks. Patience is a skill that I am still practicing – CBD definitely helps!!
Trudevata is a wellness CBD oil company passionate about empowering busy, stressed out people, to find balance and feel their best!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Ahhhh fun!! I would recommend they stay at Hotel Adeline in Scottsdale. We would relax by the pool, while enjoying food and drinks – everyday!

Afternoons would consist of shopping at Fashion Square Mall and exploring all of the shops in Old Town Scottsdale. The we would enjoy dinner at a different Scottsdale restaurant each night – two of my favorites are Citizen Public House and Toca Madera.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
