The Authentic You Media platform was born from an innate desire to live from a place of authenticity. In a world where real things are shunned, airbrushed or censored, it has become increasingly difficult to just BE YOU.
Founder of Authentic You Media, Michelle Arbeau is passionate about helping others find and live their truth because she knows first-hand the importance of doing so. Her own journey to authenticity marked the birth of Authentic You Media:
“Although I had built my platform as a numerologist and on the outside it looked like I was successful and content, on the inside I felt like I was living adjacent to my real life purpose. I knew the numbers were my gift to the world but something was amiss and I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. As the years passed, my platform continued to grow but I grew emptier inside. About 3 years ago I had what I call a spiritual crisis. I realized I had built my entire life around what I thought others expected me to be and wasn’t living in alignment with my authentic self. I knew if I were to ever find true happiness and contentment, I needed to live my truth on every level.
I made the drastic choice to scratch everything and hit the reset button. I had hit rock bottom on a spiritual level and there was only one option—to find my truth and live it. I sold my house, most of my belongings, fit what I could in a five-by-eight trailer, and set out across Canada in search of ourselves. I dropped my work, my titles—everything. I was suddenly nothing and no one. I couldn’t spend another day being someone who didn’t feel quite right.
Sitting in the driveway of my house on closing day with nothing but my clothes and a few sentimental belongings left, reality came crashing down. It was both scary and exhilarating.
After traveling from one side of the country to nearly the other, I decided to stop in Calgary because I had a friend there. From that moment in time, synchronicity kicked into high gear and I knew I had made the right choice.
Within three weeks, CTV News, a national media outlet in Canada, called me out of the blue to be a
guest. After the first appearance, they called me twice more within a three-month span. I still have no idea how they found me or how they even knew I was in town. From there it was a snowball effect; more media appearances, a flurry of celebrity clients, and coincidental connections with all the right people that propelled me fast and hard into the numbers again, taking me to new heights.
But this time it was different. I had stepped back into the numerologist role but had yet to fully embrace my old title. This was an opportunity to reinvent and rebrand myself in alignment with my truth.
Fast-forward a few years later and not only am I living my truth every single day of my life, I get to assist others in finding their truth too.
Authentic You Media’s core mission is to provide media to uplift and inspire others to embrace their authenticity. Our motto is simple: BE YOU.
