Rachel Michael

“Style Power”

As a woman, you’re inundated with advice for how to be more stylish – but have you ever stopped to wonder what it’s actually doing for you? This empowering talk encourages you to completely change the way you think about your personal style. With this new perspective, clothing turns into a powerful tool for reinforcing who you are and how you show up in the world.

During this session, you’ll go through the transformational process of defining your unique personal style power, before learning how to apply it to what you wear.

You’ll walk away:

  • With a fresh, empowered approach to style that will take the stress out of getting dressed once and for all
  • Holding the key to unlocking your inner confidence
  • Knowing how to create a genuine and captivating personal presence
  • Excited, inspired and ready to let your true self shine!

Rachel Michael is a Minneapolis-based personal stylist on a mission to eradicate outdated style ‘rules’ so women can unleash themselves in all their beautiful, authentic glory!

She is also the owner of Rachel Michael Styling, which offers personal styling services that empower women to wear what they love on the body they have. Through a transformational process that includes a wardrobe edit, shopping trip, and styling session, she shows women how to ditch outdated style rules keeping them stuck, dress in a way that embraces their beautiful bodies, and, best of all, have fun with style again!

She specializes in helping women who have gained weight, lost weight, or find their body has changed thanks to any number of life events (menopause, having kids, pro-longed stress, etc.) in redefining their style and refreshing their wardrobe with new clothes that honor their beautiful bodies. Many women come to her after being promoted or taking on a more visible role in their career because they want a put-together style with clothes they feel great in. She loves supporting women in owning their power with a defined style that helps them feel comfortable and confident in their new roles and bodies.

When she’s not helping women take back their style power, you can find her reading (about a gazillion books at once), in the studio learning the art of pole dancing, binging a random circa 2000s TV show with her husband, Aaron, baking and decorating cakes and, of course, shopping!


TeamWomen Professional Development Bootcamps are designed exclusively for women seeking growth and development in their personal and professional lives. Each session will delve into a specific topic and provide attendees with a multifaceted learning opportunity. Our expert speakers, each with a unique skill set and perspective, will share their knowledge and guidance, helping attendees gain new insights and strategies to thrive!
