Since 1986 Michael has helped over 400 businesses and organizations like Premier Benefits Group, the M|State Foundation, Malstrom Electric, Odegaard Wings, and Cornerstone Specialties.

He coaches several disciplines of business including leadership development, financial management, building effective cultures through mentorship, brand building, and marketing, sales, and delivery activities. Michael takes a truly wholistic approach to helping others build their business.

Michael has worked the last several years as a business coach and advisor successfully helping small business owner’s transition from a business that owns them, to a business which enables them to create the success they desire. As one client business owner has stated, “I used to be a guy with an insurance license, now I’m the owner of an employee benefits business”.

The best prospect for the kind of help Michael provides is an entrepreneur that is just coming to grips with the prospective; that to attain their idea of success they need to take control and create a proper business structure. They know change is necessary and they need help clearing the path.

Michael and his wife Donna enjoy their dogs, traveling out west, and quiet days on the water.

Michael is grateful he gets to do this. Being a coach is truly his calling and he is happiest when the people he works with can make real progress creating their own version of success.
