    Coach Michael

    Ten years ago, Michael was 50lbs overweight, massively in debt, in a marriage neither partner wanted, and totally disconnected from who he was as a person. Fast-forward ten years… Michael is 60lbs lighter, a published author, an actor, and a proud father. Since discovering that supporting people is what he was born to do, he's gone on to coach hundreds and counsel thousands at all levels from kindergartner to Fortune 300 CEO across six continents. With clear strategies, compassionate accountability, and a space of acceptance, Michael supports others to create success at every step of their journey. He focuses on developing leaders and change agents, not just for a better and brighter future, but a better and brighter NOW.

    Business Owner & Youth Mentor

    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.


    CEO of Everyone's Music School & the Speak for Change Podcast.

    My perception of my life has shifted dramatically. I've been given tools and greater awareness to move forward in accomplishing my goals.

    Before working with Michael, I had trouble identifying the deeper causes of what stopped me from pursuing my dreams. He really worked with me to clear out any mental blocks I had in the way so I could move forward quicker and with greater ease!


    Writer, Performer, and Youth Worker

    My coaching work with Michael is helping me to clarify my creative goals and expose my attachments to limitations.


    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.


    Musician, Producer, & 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.


    Sustainable Business Specialist, Executive Producer, & 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.

    You’re confident. You’re pumped. You’re ready! This is the moment you’re finally going to make it happen… Yes! And then it doesn’t. What gives? If it’s that important to you shouldn’t you go for it without fail? If you’re anything like me, you’ve had goals you’ve failed to fully dedicate...
    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...

    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...
