ABOUT THE BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:
Our mission is to help families in Georgia and the surrounding states to have the necessary protection, such as life insurance, health insurance and retirement options that meet their personal needs. Our goal is to educate and assist our clients in making educated decisions based on life incidents that happen to everyone. Unforeseen events and a lack of the right type of insurance can spell trouble quickly. We want to limit the blow of such events by assisting with proper planning.
Michelle A. Roberts of Atlanta, Georgia, is a fighter and a winner. She describes her impressive life change in this way: “After being married for 17 years, I finally awakened to the realization that my drug-addicted husband was not going to change. I had remained in the marriage—for too long—largely for two reasons. One, was because I thought no one would want a fat girl with three babies. The other, deeper reason was because I was not raised with my father and always longed for that relationship, so I clung to the hope that my husband would be the man who would fill that void. He did not. In fact, he put our children and me through the maddening frustrations and disappointments that come with sharing life with an addict. I became so depressed I began carrying 268 pounds on a five-foot frame. Finally, I took charge of my life. I had life-altering surgery, gastric bypass, and lost more than 110 pounds. I got a divorce, began a lifestyle of fitness, went back to school, and obtained a bachelor’s and master’s degrees and I am currently a Doctoral Candidate. I opened several businesses: Michelle A. Roberts Enterprises, Roberts Travel Services and my latest business, Michelle A. Roberts Legacy Group, which is a Life and Health Insurance Company.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS / ACCOLADES / AWARDS:
My proudest moments is being a Mother of three young adults; two have graduated from college and one doing well in business. I have also been fortunate to lead my Chapter of the American Business Women’s Association to National Recognition as a level 2 Award winning Chapter in my tenure as President 2016-2017
ADVICE:I love traveling with family and cooking. We love have family gatherings with great food and fun.
I love to read and have authored five books. I am a avid learner always learning and adapting. The best advice I have received was to fail forward. Keep trying and never give up on your dream. I have made mistakes along the way, but I learned to pick myself up and go forward.
If I had the power to change one thing about the world, it would be that Black women receive the same opportunities and access as our white counterparts in reference to business, finance and exposure.
