Michelle Douglas is a writer and mentor with a passion for helping individuals and brands uncover their reason for being and share their story. At age twenty-one she began a career in advertising and marketing, growing through work experience with advertising agencies, nonprofits, and global corporations. At the same time, she began the practice of journaling and recording life lessons, culminating in more than a decade of learnings to guide today’s twentysomethings.

She shares the inspiring life advice she gleaned from this practice with twentysomethings through contributions to Thrive Global and on Instagram at @fieldguidefortwenties. Michelle is the founder of Ladder, a brand strategy and communications company focused on social good, where she has worked with clients ranging from Olympic athletes to Harvard Business School New Venture Competition winners. A native of Jacksonville, Florida, graduate of the University of Florida and transplant from Atlanta, Georgia, Michelle feels fortunate to call many places home. She currently lives in Annapolis, Maryland with her husband and young daughter.

Written for anyone just starting out or suddenly starting over, this field guide–part advice book, part journal–will help you discover the very important yet not so obvious lessons to be learned in early adulthood. In these pages, Michelle Douglas shares learnings from her own life and ten-year journaling practice alongside thought-provoking prompts with valuable lessons like . . .

  • The weakness isn’t necessarily where the leak is
  • Surround yourself with people who are willing to lift while they climb
  • You can’t change the shape of a piece to force it into your puzzle
  • Don’t go looking for love, go looking for things you love to do
  • It’s what you bring to the table, not how long you’ve been sitting at it

Don’t Wear Shoes You Can’t Walk In equips every twentysomething (and beyond) with powerful tools to enrich their life and take their next steps forward with confidence.
