Defying the Odds – The Untold Story of Michelle Hill, Founder and Owner of Winning Proof
SKILL CAN TAKE YOU PLACES…HEART TAKES YOU ALL THE WAY.
People say an athlete can have all the skill in the world but if he doesn’t have heart, he won’t succeed in the long run. Skill can take you places. Heart will take you all the way.
A winning combination of heart, writing expertise, and insight is only a portion of the playbook that propels me up the field to achieve triumph for my high-performance clients. An inherent ability to form strong connections as well as customize solutions to represent your exclusive style creates championship results for your business and branding. I love helping my clients tell their stories in a way that spells increased brand visibility and residual revenue!
TENACITY. DETERMINATION. COURAGE.
As Your Legacy Builder at Winning Proof, I have an innate gift for understanding the mindset of the athlete, whether active, retired, or transitioning. Although I didn’t play sports in school because I was under-developed, unskilled, and had a dreadful lack of self-confidence, I do know something about what it takes to overcome obstacles and gain yardage in life through an abundance of tenacity, determination, and courage. I know what major transition is like at various stages of life, and I understand the importance of seizing winning opportunities along the way. I possess a mega-dose of divine enablement and I see it in operation every day.
After 20+ years of writing in various capacities, I created Winning Proof in 2008 and soon morphed into the Strong Copy QB. I’ve had the privilege of working with Spencer Tillman on the Lombardi Awards along with assisting several retired athletes with their books, including 13-year NBA veteran, Adonal Foyle; former Iowa State coach, Randy Brown; and 2005 UNC basketball champion, Rashad McCants. It’s been my honor to have interviewed such notables as Dan Reeves, Dick Butkus, Mike Haynes, John Niland, Lee Roy Jordan, Mike Golic, and Dr. Bennet Omalu.
I especially enjoy utilizing the power of words to help you, the pro athlete, navigate a practical, proactive transition from your playing days to your post-sports career.
YOUR BOOK = WORDS OF HEART AND ART
As I’ve grown and developed in my business, I re-branded myself into Your Legacy Builder which best capsulizes what I do for my clients. I find the process exhilarating to transform my clients’ “words from the heart” into “words of art.” I tell my clients, “I take YOUR words and make them pretty on the page.” As an athlete you have a story to tell! You have learned valuable life lessons, you have gained the ability to overcome hurdles, triumph over adversity, and create winning opportunities to score a competitive edge in today’s global landscape. I work hard to make sure your book writing and publishing experience is positive and personally rewarding.
Haven’t you become accustomed to living with a winning mentality and intense work ethic? Haven’t you dreamed of working with someone who has one too?
It’s all about delivering results beyond your expectations!
“Michelle is the actual hero who helped make this book a reality. One day on LinkedIn, I noticed her name and title. I reached out to learn more and conversation soon began. The result was an explosion of commitment and accountability that helped me pick up those 305 pages I had etched out while at Butner Federal Correctional Instution. After collaborating with Michelle, I began assembling a new puzzle. Without this encounter, I doubt any progress would have been made. Ever since, she has been an excellent supporter and professional.”
Randy Brown, (former) Iowa State head basketball coach, public speaker, and author
**I’m proud to announce that in 2016 I published my first personal book which has nothing whatsoever to do with sports writing.**
It’s called…now don’t laugh…it’s called…
“Bathroom Prayers – Inspiring Thoughts While You’re on the Pot.” My pen name is Anita Flushing. Okay, NOW you can laugh. This simple book is based on a 7-week format of daily short readings that I hope will inspire, motivate and stimulate you to live a life of celebration, letting go, and taking action. Some of the weekly titles includes Flush It Down, Rim Shot, and Plunge Into the Deep. See…you never know what’s lurking in the mind of Your Legacy Builder when she’s not working.
You can buy it here. If you do buy it, I would love to hear from you about what parts of the book you found to be the most impactful.

For fun, and I do take time for fun, I like to weight train and do cardio on the elliptical, read motivational, personal development, and business books, get monthly massages, watch movies based on true events like The Great Debaters, Hidden Figures, Secretariat, and Mr. Church. I also love cooking 5-star meals, and baking…especially when it involves dark chocolate!
