What others have to say:
“Michelle, or Chel, is one of the bulletproof, rock-solid people you can depend upon to get things done.” - Christopher S. Penn
“Her productivity assistance is invaluable for someone like myself, running multiple businesses and projects, and she is excellent at making sure my foundation is rock solid before I embark on any new venture.” - Leslie Poston
“But perhaps more importantly, as I started to realize how incredibly competent she was, I found myself looking for things I could hand off to her. Now, I’m addicted. I absolutely can’t imagine not having Chel to magically make my tech and admin problems disappear.” - Helena Bouchez
“Michelle is a GEM! She was completely professional, went above and beyond the call of duty, and provided us with support that we needed on a very complex project. I was constantly impressed with her work and felt very reassured knowing that she was on the job.” - Scott Monty
Future past or the path to Chel (in first person)
Answering typically to “Chel”, I grew up in a very small town in the south that no one knows. As a child, I would read anything that had words on it and wasn’t moving. Or so my mom liked to insist. I played a lot of Atari and Nintendo in my spare time. Then I heard about this shiny new thing call the internet and begged to have it “turned on”. (GEEK!)
After getting connected, I went on to join communities like Memespace (created by Chris Abraham) and Brainstorms (created by Howard Rheingold). After some intense life lessons and a lot of changes, I discovered a crazy online world called Second Life. Choosing the name Chel Pixie, it stuck as a nickname and a brand. Chelpixie.com still hosts my blog and @chelpixie is where you can find me on Twitter.
Mid 2007, I realized I wasn’t content with the empty beauty of the pitch black sky in my small town and I moved to Boston. I quickly fell in love with the city and have since enjoyed the quirkiness of the T as well as the sparkly skyline at night.
