Together We Can

Yesterday, I talked about why I could not do everything for you. And why there were some things you just had to do for yourself. Today is a little bit different. Today, I would like to let you know there are things we can do together.

First, without getting boring or bragging, let me tell you a little about myself. I’ve been teaching professionally both in the classroom and online since 2003. I started off as a corporate trainer and then moved into private training. Although I still teach online, and occasionally in the classroom. When the factory I taught at was scheduled to be shut down in 2007, I helped over 200 people research, and apply for positions in other businesses. The majority of people who tried and were serious found a job in about five months. I went on to help others through the local workforce center. I am now retired and work at helping others wherever I can.

The reason I say this is to let you know that I mean what I say. Please don’t let the word retired worry you, I am up on the new trends and just completed training last year, and now I am a life coach. I get a lot of people who ask me why I wanted to become a life coach. Two reasons. If you study something, it’s because you’re interested in it. Secondly, I find a lot of my friends who have fallen into holes, ruts actually, and since I’ve been in some of those ruts before, I want to be prepared to jump in and help them out.

What I can do is be a sounding board. I’m willing to work with you, listen to you, and help where I can. I have many tools we can use to work together. We can connect via Zoom or other video applications. I’m trained in long-distance education which plays well into long-distance coaching. Throughout my life, I’ve lived in various parts of the world, so I understand a little about customs and social needs and variations found in different geological areas. And I can be at your service if you think I can help.

If you are interested, please send a comment with how I can contact you, or, you can contact me at

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again soon.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
