Today we’d like to introduce you to Michelle Hammons.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I truly believe that we are ALL born for a great purpose, a specific destiny, a call that echoes in our hearts. Have you ever felt an ache to bring justice, freedom, joy or hope to the world around you? To be a catalyst of change for your community? To shine a light in dark places and bring love to the broken-hearted!
Right after giving my life to the Lord when I was 17, my endless search for love, acceptance, and purpose was over. My mind was renewed to the fact that God can and will use all of our past regrets, pain, and shame to bring healing to everyone we meet! I was told I would never be enough, I was told that No one would love me, I was told that I didn’t matter… BUT I’m here to tell you that the lies I believed for so long did not HOLD me back, instead they have ignited the passion in my heart to teach women their true worth, purpose and identity! To empower everyone I meet to break free from complacency, fear, doubt, or shame in order to make their dreams and goals a reality!
After getting my Bachelors from the University of Houston, I became a Certified Life Coach, and then I had the opportunity to speak and host different events, workshops, seminars, and conferences. Having these opportunities helped in developing my character and integrity while also inspiring me to start my business Beauty Life Coach.
Enlightened to the fact that women need community, compassion, and support, I am able to infuse beauty, fashion, wellness, travel, and lifestyle together to empower women to know their worth, purpose, and identity. Inspiring them to break free from complacency in order to make their dreams and goals a reality.
I believe that with fierce determination, passion, and a fixed focus we can and will accomplish our dreams. As a Certified Life Coach and former model, I use my expertise to create strategic workshops, seminars, classes and now my 8 city tour, G.L.A.M. Girls Night Out for women to realign with their call and destiny. Teaching them the power of community over comparison/competition. Allow them the opportunity to connect with like-minded women that will help propel them forward, all while feeling and looking phenomenal.
Together is always better and empowered women, empower others!
I am so thankful I can use my past experience and passions to bridge the gap between beauty and fashion, life coaching, and affinity for community and family to create an experience for women to gather, laugh, take action and be motivated. I truly believe that everything we overcome is not for ourselves but for the benefit of others and that is why I am so passionate about bringing light, life, and hope everywhere I go.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
No, it has not been a smooth road, and yes they were a lot of struggles, and pain along the way. However, I’m so thankful for the bumps, cracks, and brokenness throughout this journey because I have grown so much in my character, integrity, and hope for the future.
I was just reminded of a verse from a country song, “if you’re going through hell, keep on going” because that struggle is not the final destination. Don’t stop in the midst of your trials, because they are growing moments. These moments will not define you or the success of your business, but they will be used to propel you forward. As you keep walking forward and pressing through the challenges, you will grow in your integrity and character that will give you the stamina to sustain your successful business.
Surround yourself with women who are chasing their dreams.
Have grace on yourself and others.
Set short and long-term goals and write them down.
Empower and inspire others with your words and actions to keep moving forward.
Never talk bad about another company.
Find the good in every situation.
Always remain thankful and speak the truth.
Find your tribe, life is so much better together!
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Beauty Life Coach – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Beauty Life Coach is all about empowering women to know their worth, purpose, and identity in an innovative way through beauty, fashion, and lifestyle. I create an environment where women are equipped and feel inspired, beautiful, loved, and perfect just as they are. To break free from complacency, fear, doubt, and insecurity in order to make their dreams a reality.

I am most proud of the GLAM Community and GLAM Girls Give Back. A space where women come together to support, empower, and inspire each other to move forward to make your dreams goals to reality.
GLAM Girls Give Back is an initiative that is being launched this year, For influencers, CEO’s, teachers, boss babes in the community who are making a positive difference to come together to change the community for the better! To use our words, actions and influence to serve in local women shelters, homeless shelters and with foster children.
Were there people and/or experiences you had in your childhood that you feel laid the foundation for your success?
Absolutely, since I did not grow up knowing Gods undeniable, unconditional love for me, I did not know my worth. In high school, I made some very destructive decisions that hurt me and everyone around me. I also overcame physical, mental, and sexual abuse, an eating disorder, suicidal thoughts, depression, anxiety, shame, bitterness, and fear, that held me back from so many amazing opportunities.
However, in the midst of all of this mess, I also played competitive volleyball and AAU basketball and we went to 4 AAU national championships. Teaching me the power of teamwork, determination, dedication, transparency, and motivation. Teaching me to never give up, and that hard work does pay off.
Therefore, my freshman year college, I experienced God’s love in such a tangible way, that my life was never the same! Truly, I felt the love that I had been searching for my entire life, I was accepted, renewed, forgiven and loved, and at that moment my life was forever changed!
Over the next few years, I went through a process of renewing my mind to the truth that I was forgiven, I was loved, redeemed, and set free. God‘s words over my life are what give me the foundation to stand with my head high, knowing that people’s opinions and approval do not dictate my destiny.
I have been given such a gift, of healing and restoration, of peace and fearlessness to bring to women everywhere. To inspire and empower them to break free from anything that has held them back, for them to know their true worth, purpose, and identity and to walk out the God-given purpose and call that is on their lives.
