    The framework for “success” is one that could use some defining. If we’re going to throw a word around that’s as important as this word has become in our society, the least we could do is spend some time getting to know it and get clear on what it means to us. Here's the principle I use to...
    When we boil it down, insecurity is the experience that something about us is not okay. We know the impact of this: frustration, depression, worry, hopelessness, etc. It often feels like a dirty little secret we’re ashamed to even consider as true and thus do our absolute best to avoid it or...
    Sometimes I wonder how people in our world can do SUCH horrible things to each other.   I think, "Wow. That's horrible. I would never imagine doing that to someone else." Then I wonder what their life has been like that's let them become this way and if I would do it the same if I were in their...

    Balance is a paradox. It can be energy draining at best, destructive at worst for anyone to strive toward this ideal. A "balanced" life doesn’t exist--though we might convince ourselves at times that it does. In truth, it can be a conversation holding us back more than we realize. Balance...

    Everything we do takes energy in one form or another. The use of this energy can mark the difference between long-lasting success and satisfaction, and an unfulfilling life laced with regrets. Time, money, and physical actions are the currency we live by. Minutes, dollars, and physical actions...
    There came a day when I awoke to the pain of being a perfectionist. Of course, my initial response was to immediately fix it. Duh, that’s what I do! Instead, I took time to sit with the pain, to let the pain be curious and explore me as it never had before. When I calmed myself enough, I saw...

  • About Coach Michael

    Greetings, Coach Seeker!


    I help people go for what they're passionate about so they can make the impact they're here to make. I work with clients across America to cultivate the inherent creativity, passion, and dedication every individual has for what's meaningful to them. I focus on Agents of Impact: Leaders in Tech, Leaders in Education, and Leaders in the Community. The reason for this is simple: they shape the minds and hearts of the future.


    Besides being a published author and a table tennis enthusiast, I hold an MA in school counseling, a teaching certification in Neuro-linguistic Programming, and am trained as a coach through the Academy for Coaching Excellence. I've been coach to hundreds and a counselor to many more. Essentially, I'm qualified to help you through some tough stuff. Through this journey of service, I've come to see, with staggering clarity, a singular truth: everyone wants their goals and dreams to make a difference!


    I support anyone I work with to do just that. Join me and start changing the world with your unique vision.

  • Here's What My Clients Have To Say:

    Meet Jorah

    Writer, Performer, and Youth Worker

    My coaching work with Hero's Heart Coaching is helping me to clarify my creative goals and expose my attachments to limitation.


    Michael is kind and refreshingly straightforward. I appreciate the strategic accountability that is built into coaching, and I feel supported in creating and achieving actionable steps.


    Most importantly to me, Michael is a coach who can laugh with me as I navigate the inner twists and roadblocks on the road to becoming the next best version of myself. There is a lot of productive laughter during our sessions.

    Meet Clint

    Youth Educator, Mentor, Adaptive Recreation Guide

    Deciding to transition from a 20-year long rewarding career as an elementary teacher was not an easy decision. My stomach and receding hairline were telling me that something had to change.


    Michael was the perfect person to help me transition into a new profession and, more importantly, a new way of relating to work.


    Michael has been an invaluable coach and resource for me. He is a keen strategist, thought provoker, and advocate. He masterfully knows when to use these various skills to bring out a clarity of purpose and desire that was hard to pinpoint on my own.

    Meet Breanne

    Creative Administrator, Writer, Poet, Graphic Artist


    The framework in which I approach most everything in my life, across all venues, has shifted since working with Michael. I sorta feel like if everyone I cared for was getting the kind of support that I've received through coaching with Michael that we'd all be a few steps closer to realizing a brighter and more conscientious world.


    If the answers were inside of me the entire time, working with Michael has helped me to identify and understand those answers.


    I'm grateful to have found my power, to have recognized my true desires, and to feel that I've got lots of forward momentum and am really on the right path for me right now. I've no doubt of the role that my coaching with Michael has played in that.

    Meet Brent

    Youth Leader, Artist and Senior Minister

    As I reach for my goals and dreams as a youth leader, Michael asks the right questions to bring me to solid decisions and action steps.


    I am a better leader today because of the coaching I received from Michael. I look forward to what further direction he can bring to my goals as I take them on one at a time.

    Meet Anthony

    Sustainable Business Specialist, Executive Producer, and Entrepreneur.

    I have seen amazing growth in a number of areas of my life thanks to the supportive coaching I have received from Michael.


    The encouragement and guidance Michael provides has been integral in my journey towards making the life of my dreams into a reality.

    Meet Dylan

    Student, Writer, and Thespian

    Michael is someone with a rare gift for breaking down how we make decisions and view ourselves in life, and likewise is a rare gift to passionate people who desire to see tangible improvement in themselves.


    This helped me have confidence in a speech of which I was previously certain that I couldn't memorize in two days, and I then went on to win three awards with the speech in my regional speech and debate tournament. Small but precise adjustments in my approach helped me to achieve something I would have never thought possible in just a week!
