"Frustrated by layers of false ads and deception as well as fake accolades, credentials, and awards by both HIP service and product providers and many questionable HIPs, Michelle formed The Inventory Institute (TII) in 2009; a national organization that verifies HIP insurance, credentials, and practices and propels the industry forward ethically. Michelle sponsored the first HIP conference and is committed to protecting ethical HIPs and advancing the industry on a solid reputation. Michelle launched the first professional certification program, wrote 99% of industry resources, has the only industry magazine (InventoryNews.info) and radio show (Home Inventory Panel), and gives free monthly trainings to name a few. She often ‘scholarships’ TII membership dues and says that lack of start up funds should not keep an ethical HIP from their dreams. She often gives away free book copies, coaching, and telesummit participation as a way to ‘even the scales’ for the honest and upstanding HIP.
