“When I first met Mike, I wasn’t getting the results that I wanted, and I couldn’t tell you why. Mike listened closely to what I was trying to create, asked penetrating questions to help me process priorities, gave direct and specific feedback, and shared professional insights, strategies, and resources. By the end of our first meeting, I was hopeful and had steps to take. By the end of Q2, I had successfully rebranded and was signing my first major contracts. I have new tools, a wider network, and increased confidence. That’s the power of having Mike as your wingman.”
