    Biography Read more

    Born and raised in Caracas-Venezuela, Michelle Poler is a creative and passionate social entrepreneur, keynote speaker, fear facer, and branding strategist.

    She is the Founder of Hello Fears, a social movement empowering millions to step outside of the comfort zone and tap into their full potential. She has spoken at TEDx, Google, INBOUND, Facebook, ESPN, Netflix, Procter and Gamble, Microsoft, Toyota, World Domination Summit, Festival of Media Global, and many more.

    In April 2015, Michelle embarked on a 100-day project that would change the course of her life. Born to a family of Holocaust survivors, Michelle was accustomed to living with fear. But when she moved to New York, she quickly realized that the “big apple” was not for the fearful. In order to rewrite her definition of fear and change her approach to life, Michelle decided to face 100 of her fears in a period of 100 days, uploading every experience to Youtube sharing them with the world.

    At around day 40, the project was discovered by the media, becoming a viral phenomenon. Her work has been featured on CBS, CNN, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, Fox News, Telemundo, Glamour, Elle, The Rachael Ray Show, Refinery29, and Daily Mail among many others. Celebrities such as Ashton Kutcher, Sofia Vergara, Zoey Deschanel, Lil Wayne and George Takei also shared Michelle’s project, generating millions of views.

    In 2017 Michelle started speaking to the younger generation. Since then, she has empowered over 20,000 students at schools and universities around the world to live with courage, find their authenticity and embrace their growth paths.

    Early on in her career she worked as an Art Director at Young & Rubicam for brands such as Hershey’s, Wendy’s, AT&T and Revlon. Michelle holds a Masters in Branding from the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

    “The only complaint that we’ve received is that we had a limit on the number of attendees and so not everyone could attend! There are a lot of people now asking themselves 'What is the BEST that could happen?' Thank you for inspiring bravery and teaching us about our fears!”

    “Michelle’s presentation at Bayer provided insight to transform employees’ mindset and perspective of their fears, from not even considering taking action to thinking 'What’s the best that can happen?' Attendees also understood and learned the power in sharing their own experiences facing fears to encourage people around them to go after their own. Members of the WLI Workplace, Culture and Events team noted attendees continue to share their fear and new motivation to face them.”
