Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Simply put, I care. I believe that all of us should make the world better while we are here and this comes through in all that I do. I also have a diverse background of experiences both professionally and personally. Stay tuned for a new website as well in the coming months. I hope to make it unique to anything you've seen on the web as far as professional backgrounds and personalities are concerned. In doing business or just being human, integrity is a key factor for me and that will never change no matter where I go or what I do in this profession or in life as a whole. It's what makes me who I am and what informs my every move. I enjoy being creative and helping others to do the same.

Working with Mike was a real revelation! What Mike did to tailor the wordingto me & my business and help me narrow it down so it just feels authentic and a “snug fit” was just amazing bordering on magic. He has developed a signature approach at coming up with names, slogans etc. At the end, I got an extremely powerful product category name, a perfect name for the course itself, AND inspiration for a second course wich he apparently developed “on the fly” just from talking to me & asking well thought out questions (at no extra cost)! Fascinating experience & AMAZING VALUE!!!

Michael is efficient, professional and genuine. He takes the time to ask questions specific to your career goals. From there, he produces a resumé guaranteed to get results. After working with Michael, the rate in which I was contacted by potential employers doubled. After a month, I was hired by a local hospital. Highly recommend Michael!

Again, there was a problem with the system. I wasn’t receiving messages. I apologize for any hardship I might’ve caused by accident.

Mike edited my 200000 word autobiography. Upon our first consultation, he displayed an immediate understanding of what I was trying to accomplish. As the process began, I found his critique and insight of my work to be spot on as I began to realize my strengths and weakness. I have found that incorporating his suggestions into book have not only made me a better writer, but now I have a better book! BTW, all at a very fair price! Brian
