And We Present to You… Michelle Carman!
As a new feature of the Utah Women’s Networking Group, we are highlighting members each month. To start 2017 off on the right foot, we thought it would be fitting to introduce you to the faithful directors of this dynamic group.
Please allow us to introduce you to our Director of Community Relations Michelle Carman. When Michelle is not actively looking for new organizations for the UTWNG to partner with and support, she is busy managing her company AGF Property ManagementPlus. The company handles both commercial and residential property management – taking the stress out of owning investment properties. They serve Salt Lake County, Magna to the Wasatch Front, and Saratoga Springs to North Salt Lake. They even assist with rentals. As Michelle always says, “Just remember that I am your personal bulldog with lipstick.”
She may be a bulldog with lipstick when it comes to business, and who doesn’t want that? But on a personal level, Michelle is a woman with a gentle heart, great sense of humor, and probably has a hug waiting for you.
We asked Michelle to answer our six questions and here is what she had to say:
Share something about yourself that can’t be found on your resume.
I love to help people. I like to make sure I can do something nice for someone at least once a day. Whether it be money, food, letting them cut in line, a hug, a smile…. at least something to brighten someone’s day.
Who is/has been your role model/mentor? And what is one key thing they taught you?
When I joined a BNI group I met a gentleman that found me lost and confused. He taught me how to come out of my box, enjoy speaking, and the love of networking. Not too bad for a wall flower.
If you could travel anywhere in the world – money is not an issue – where would you go and why?
I think if I could just go on a cruise ship and sail all over, I would totally love that. My love is waterfalls and if I could go see more of them, that would make me happy.
What is a motto or phrase you live and/or work by?
Communication, patience and give.
Who is your must-listen-to or must-read author, blog or video blog? How do they inspire, motivate, encourage and/or help you?
I am not a reader or blog follower, but I do listen to BNI podcasts the most and they are done by Ivan Misner.
Any last words of wisdom to share with UTWNG members and future members?
Embrace this group, the women, and the lessons that are given you each day. We have incredible women in this group and you can learn so much and gain some amazing friends.
We are so grateful that Michelle is part of our leadership team. She is a great advocate for the UTWNG and the relationships that blossom from being involved. Please be sure to say hello to Michelle at our next event!
