Hi, my name is Mike. My specialty is in helping people set and achieve goals. Whether in business, education or personal pursuits, no one accomplishes any significant activity without a solid plan for success and access to the resources you need to succeed. I can help you set realistic goals, learn the information you need to succeed and provide you with practical insight on how the material can affect your job and life prospects in the future. I teach from a perspective of learning through understanding of why things work, rather than just by memorizing material for the next test.
I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Ohio State University and a Masters on Business Administration from the University of North Florida. I own several companies in which I assist businesses and individuals to succeed. In addition to what is listed here, I also teach financial literacy in order to ensure individuals are financially prepared to achieve their dreams.
In my regular job, I own and operate a company that mentors the CEOs of small businesses, helping them to improve their company's performance. I can help you improve your performance as well. I work with high-performance individuals who are committed to success. If you want to learn, let's talk.
As a certified business coach and a certified business model analyst, I provide mentoring and coaching services to the owners of small businesses on a daily basis. Additionally, I have also applied these skills in the non-profit and corporate sectors. Educationally, I have an MBA; but more importantly, I have practical experience. I have owned numerous companies and currently own three. I also have helped to grow a startup company to over $2B in annual revenue.
I have been working with young adults for many years, teaching and mentoring in the areas of skill development, career planning, financial literacy, goal setting, retirement planning, and other personal development topics. I have employed these skills in the corporate, military, government, private and non-profit sectors.
I have an engineering degree and an MBA, both of which included coursework on econometrics. I have worked as a practiced economist and quantitative analyst for 13 years in the energy trading industry. In addition, I am an accomplished public speaker in the area of econometrics and how it applies to energy trading and risk management.
I have used MS Access for over 20 years as a quantitative analyst, both as both a database product and as a graphical user interface for developing small office automaton projects. I am comfortable working in database design, data analysis, form and report design, SQL and VBA.
As an engineer and project manager, MS Project is one of my basic tools. I have used the product for many years in real-life project management situations for capital projects as large as $100M and 100+ people and for smaller functions such as work force planning.
I have been a professional public speaker as part of my regular employment. I have spoken regularly (100+ of engagements) on various technical and non-technical topics over the last 15 years. A sample of topics I have spoken on include quantitative analytics, risk management, financial literacy, goal setting, and common mistakes small business owners make in running their businesses.
