Hi! I'm Mike.

I believe that life is meant to be a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Is yours?

Quitting my corporate job DID NOT lead to happiness.​

After leaving my airline career of ten years, my wife and I traveled the world.

As you could imagine, we had a blast!

Shockingly, however, it didn't lead to long-term happiness, as I then slipped into the lowest point of my life.

​​I was confused.

I had already left a 9 to 5 job, traveled the world, and was skiing a hundred days a year in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, working with my best friend and living with my amazing wife and pup…yet still found myself in a place of emptiness and depression.

I had to discover for myself that sustainable peace and joy couldn't be found in those places or activities.

It was hidden within me.​

During that time of darkness, I thankfully discovered mindfulness and meditation.

I was able to clear on my purpose and to stop caring what others were thinking.

I stopped wasting time and began enjoying each and every day of life.

Since then, “the work” has became my life.

It’s what I love writing, sharing, coaching, speaking, and thinking about:

Slowing down, enjoying the journey, and unwinding our minds.

Because our thoughts aren’t real but our emotions are always guiding us.

First, a few words on thoughts. Most thoughts are simply repetitive and fairly negative.

Our minds are designed to keep us thinking, solving problems, scanning for threats…not living in the moment.

We also believe lies and repeat them so frequently, that they become our truths,

These are patterns that must be reprogrammed. True change begins in our own minds.

As within, so without.

As for emotions, everything from everyday stress to full-blown depression and panic attacks are the body’s way to send us messages.

They get louder and louder until, typically, we get smacked in the face and begin to ask questions.

When we feel repressed, misaligned, lacking purpose, or not serving others to the best of our abilities, we feel it.

Something feels off…and we get stuck in comfort and complacency.

But it’s such a noisy world…and our minds aren’t much calmer.

We are so reactive, judgmental, and, oftentimes, unkind.

We tend to speak worse about ourselves than we would to our greatest enemy.

Could life be so much easier?

I’m not perfect. Far from it…

However, since discovering the principles I write and coach about, life just keeps getting better and better.

So please keep reading my words on the homepage (and subscribe), or check out my Coaching page. You can learn about how I work with clients to help them transform their lives and show up as the person they want to be…for themselves and everyone around them.

They become someone who knows how to slow down and enjoy the journey.

Remember, there's a reason why you're reading this today.

And I'm glad you're here.​
