For over 25 years, Mike has committed himself to working with adults and teens through his programs, which are focused on strategycoaching. His passion is motivating people, because he understands the struggles that they endure. As a young kid and teen athlete, Mike did not make it to the travel teams until he was 13 years old. When he finally made it, he always struggled to compete against the other players.
Through good mentors, coaches and teachers, all while paying attention to the little things, details, and challenges, he achieved his ultimate lifetime goal of playing in the NHL. This journey of Mike's as a young kid who fought against all odds to make it, led him to write and produce his book. Not only did he overcome his growth areas, but he wanted to share his story with others, as well as his own children. Mike is dedicated to providing the “Better Life Training Playbook for Life & My 100 Ways Journal" Program to adults and teens, so that they have a road map for achieving their lifetime goals.
