“I had to start my own business if I wanted to be successful.”

Starting her own business was not only a goal for Michelle, it was necessary. Having been diagnosed with narcolepsy in her mid-twenties, she knew that she couldn’t keep up with a normal nine-to-five job. “You don’t get a restful sleep,” she says. “It’s like if you stayed up for 48 hours straight and also tried to do your work.” Most people with narcolepsy are either under or unemployed. If Michelle wanted success, she would have to build it herself.

Venture Creative Collective operates virtually and boasts a team of five team members, all of whom telecommute. Michelle is passionate about offering a flexible work environment, recognizing the importance of such flexibility for her team, as well as herself.
