Hello. I'm Michael.
I’m a marketer by day and a best-selling author, relationship coach, keynote speaker, and personal-development junkie by night. Given the nature of what I write about here, I also find it important to clarify that I’m not a licensed therapist, counselor, social worker, psychologist, or healthcare professional.
I believe that opportunities for growth, success, and happiness are unlimited for those who are willing to put in the work. I believe there’s power in setting sights high; in not settling for average.
I also believe that most people sell themselves short. They settle for status quo, or for what others tell them they can and can’t do.
I believe life is meant to be enjoyed. I believe we’re here to create, build, learn, and connect. I believe that the definitions of happiness and success are different for every person, but that both are within reach for everyone.
I also believe that pursuit of all this is easier said than done.
I created this blog to give me a springboard for my thoughts, ideas, and insights as they pertain to the above pursuits. In my short 32 years on this planet, I’ve come to realize that there is much more to life than checking boxes, getting degrees, and punching a time clock. I also continue to realize that life can be hard (much harder than many realize), and it can be amazing (much more-so than many expect).
My personal mantra: if you want it, go for it.
I want a lot of things in this life. So I’m going for them. I figured I may as well share what I learn along the way.
